How did Giovani Bernard not break a couple of ribs on that hit by Vontae Davis?? That hurt just watching it. #Colts

Michael Pointer

Referee Gene Steratore having a contact lens issue for a second time.

Conrad Brunner

So A.J. Green is really that good, huh?

Conrad Brunner

Luck charged with the fumble by #Colts stat crew.

Michael Pointer

Who do you put the failed handoff on: Luck or Richardson? Bengals take over at own 36

Michael Pointer

Still relatively early, but this is starting to smell like a blowout. #Colts

Conrad Brunner

Almost forgot .. #Colts have outscored last 4 opponents 54-0 in first quarter.

Conrad Brunner

5 straight 3-and-outs for #Bengals, who have 19 total yards on 15 plays vs. #Colts.

Michael Pointer

Were the #Colts sitting in on the Bengals meetings this week? Have a mole at practice? It's like they know what play is coming.

Michael Pointer

Not a bad day for T.Y. Hilton so far: 6 catches for 93 yards. #colts

Michael Pointer

Ahmad Bradshaw scores on a 1-yard run. PAT makes it 10-0 with 12:08 left in first. #Colts look to be firmly in control.

Michael Pointer

Bengals' Leon Hall didn't get any help. T.Y. Hilton over middle for 46-yard gain.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts outgain #Bengals 150-19 in 1Q, but lead just 3-0.

Michael Pointer

End of first quarter: #Colts 3, Bengals 0.

Michael Pointer

Do the Bengals miss A.J. Green this much? #Colts defense looking like the '85 Bears. Giving absolutely no room.

Michael Pointer

Luck stopped short on scramble, #Colts settle for a 23-yard FG by Vinatieri. Take 3-0 lead with 33 seconds left in first quarter.

Conrad Brunner

Luck gets his once-per-game should've-been-an-interception out of the way early for #Colts.

Michael Pointer

Three three-and-out for Colts defense.

Conrad Brunner

Make it 3-31 on 3D for last 4 #Colts opponents.

Michael Pointer

Ruling stands. First down Cincinnati. #Colts

Michael Pointer

Great strip by Cincy's Carlos Dunlap, but Bradshaw's knee close to being down. Will be reviewed. First glance, not sure enough to overturn.

Michael Pointer

Bradshaw had a nice run going, but fumbles while fighting for extra yardage and #Bengals recover at own 12.

Michael Pointer

#Colts don't have another home game until Nov. 16. Guessing this will be last time LOS roof is open this year. Enjoy.

Michael Pointer

Most action so far has been referee Gene Steratore getting a new contact lens. #colts

Conrad Brunner

#Colts opponents now 3-30 on third down in last four games.

Michael Pointer

We're less than three seven minutes into the game. Both teams have punted twice.#Colts

Michael Pointer

No blitz on that play from the #Colts defense, but just as effective. Two three-and-outs to start game.

Michael Pointer

Think the officials got that right. #Bengals player's knee was grazing goal line when punt downed. Touchback.

Conrad Brunner

Keep in mind, #Colts offense was pretty bad last time roof was open (1H vs. Baltimore).

Michael Pointer

Looks like some #Colts fans sold their tickets. More than a few Bengals fans in the house. Heard a loud cheer on three-and-out.

Michael Pointer

It is enjoyable to see friends at the #Colts game, I've become quite a fan of NFL RedZone. Suffering some withdrawl pains today.

Mark Montieth

Decided to keep the roof closed at my house today.

Michael Pointer

Michael Pointer

On #Colts duty today. Please follow along. #Bengals look pretty banged up. Will be competitive, but should be win for the home team.

Michael Pointer

Non-sports note: Saw "Dallas Buyers Club" this weekend. Tough to watch at times, but worth it. Jared Leto with a landmark performance.

Michael Pointer

On #Colts duty today. Epitome of a beautiful fall day. Roof is open. . .Guess it justifies that extra $200 million or so for it.

Chris Singleton

Love being the obnoxious guy in the room rooting for the other team #FSU

Michael Pointer

It was the right call. . .and Notre Dame is not out of the playoff chase. Win out and the Irish still have a good chance to get in.

Chris Singleton

And that's ball game!!!

Michael Pointer

Correction again: @IndyFuel is actually 0-1-0-1. I'm a hockey nut and I find it confusing as hell.

Michael Pointer

My story tonight: David West sprains ankle in #Pacers' preseason win indy.st/1tChwvJ via @indystar

Michael Pointer

#IndianaState loses 34-17 at defending NFCS champ North Dakota State today. Sycamores fall to 4-3, 1-2 in MVFC.

Michael Pointer

BTW: Not surprisingly, no sign of David West in #Pacers locker room afterwards.

Mark Montieth

No word on @David West injury, other than sprained ankle. He was gone by the time his teammates reached locker room, to get MRI no doubt.

Michael Pointer

More Vogel: "“It was a weird game." #Pacers

Michael Pointer

More Vogel on West: "No idea (on how long out). We just know it's a sprained ankle. X-rays were negative." #pacers

Michael Pointer

Vogel did agree that was a weird game -- even by preseason standards. Just kind of bizarre.

Michael Pointer

Vogel says West will be re-examined further in next day or two. Declined to speculate on how long be out,

Mark Montieth

Seems Copeland muddied the picture at SF tonight. Guessing he'll still come off the bench, with Miles and Stuckey starting, but we'll see.

Michael Pointer

Final: #Pacers 98, Mavericks 93. Terrible first three quarters, but reserves rallied in fourth.

Michael Pointer

Villaneuva misses 3 pointer and Sloan grabs rebound. Will go to line with 6.6 seconds left.

Conrad Brunner

Fun finish for #Pacers scrubs but everything else about this performance was extremely troubling.

Michael Pointer

But again, the big news tonight is West's injured ankle. Hope to hear more after game. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Home team might get out of here with a win after horrible first 3 quarters. All done with reserves except for possibly Copeland. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Sloan scores on a backdoor cut to give Indiana a 95-93 lead and Dallas misses on other end. S. Hill hits one-of-two FTs. #Pacers lead 96-93.

Michael Pointer

We're now tied 91-91, 1:02 left. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Damjan Rudez just hit a 3-pointer and crowd went nuts. Don't think it was just because it gave #Pacers momentary lead either.

Michael Pointer

Copeland's 3-pointer from the right wing gives #Pacers an 86-85 lead with 2:18 left, but James counters for Dallas on next possession.

Michael Pointer

Sloan hits basket and adds free throw to cut the deficit to 85-83. #Pacers trailed by 14 late in third quarter.

Michael Pointer

Coepland drains a 3-pointer from wing. #Pacers trail 82-78 with 5:06 left. . .

Michael Pointer

Donad Sloan's layup cuts Dallas' lead to 82-75 with 5:56 left, closest #Pacers have been since the final two minutes of first half.

Conrad Brunner

If GHill played with Sloan's pace ... oh, forget it. Never happen. #Pacers

Conrad Brunner

If Budinger truly on the market, Bird needs to get very busy on phone with T-Wolves. #Pacers desperate for another 3-man.

Michael Pointer

From the #Pacers: David West has a sprained right ankle and will not return.

Michael Pointer

Hibbert just picked up his first field goal on the opening play of the fourth quarter. #pacers

Michael Pointer

End of third quarter: Mavericks 74, #Pacers 61. But the big story is the health of David West.

Michael Pointer

Damjan Rudez just missed another 3-pointer. Another groan from the #Pacers faithful.

Michael Pointer

"You guys aren't calling illegal screens so our guys want to hit them," Vogel to referee Marat Kogut after an offensive foul on Lavoy Allen.

Michael Pointer

Happened with 6:02 left in the third quarter. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle just looked toward end of #pacers bench as if checking on West.

Michael Pointer

West now being helped to the locker room. Not looking good at all. Very bas sign for #Pacers.

Michael Pointer

West trying to put weight on it, but in obvious pain while being helped off. I would bet the ranch we will not see him again tonight.

Conrad Brunner

David West being helped off by pretty much entire #Pacers team after rolling R ankle.

Michael Pointer

David Wright is down after landing awkwardly following an attempted putback. Grabbing right ankle.

Michael Pointer

Ian Mahinmi just missed rim entirely with a free throw. Kind of sums up night. #pacers

Conrad Brunner

Why are fans still at #Pacers game? Are they showing Notre Dame-FSU game on video monolith?

Conrad Brunner

Oh good. As if this game wasn't barfworthy enough, refs are going to drag it out with replay reviews.

Mark Montieth

Pacers were hitting .345 from 3pt line before tonight, even with Rudez going 2-14. But they hit Rudez-like 2-14 in first half vs Mavs.

Conrad Brunner

The only way GHill could look more disinterested would be looking at his cel phone while walking the ball upcourt. #Pacers.

Michael Pointer

#Pacers on a 10-2 run. Miles layup cuts deficit to 48-42 with 1:17 left in first half.

Conrad Brunner

Nights like this offer evidence Vegas has been wildly optimistic in its W projections for #Pacers.

Michael Pointer

Two of the officials working tonight's #Pacers-Mavs game look like they should be attending high school homecoming dance. Geez, I'm old.

Conrad Brunner

Good thing the #Pacers have such good chemistry or they'd be sniping at each other while getting drubbed by #Mavs summer league team.

Michael Pointer

Dallas 46, #Pacers 32, 3:27 left in half.

Michael Pointer

Dallas' Richard Jefferson just scored untouched on a putback. Wouldn't say the crowd booed, but heard a "Ohhh" as in disbelief. #pacers

Conrad Brunner

Good to see Hibbert in mid-season form. More like late-season. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Should point out this isn't exactly against Dallas' best either. Mavs are playing without Nowitski and four other likely starters. #pacers

Michael Pointer

Not to alarm anyone, but Roy Hibbert had taken just one shot and committed three turnovers through 11 minutes. #pacers

Michael Pointer

#Pacers had nine turnovers in first quarter compared to none for Dallas. Good thing it's a pre-season game, huh??
