Why Bored Young Boys Shouldn't Get Tattoos. RT @cjzero: One Direction dude has a Pac Man tattoo #SNL http://t.co/WWkrRNnm8z

Candace Buckner

Asked CJ Miles if 2nite was missed opportunity to beat a tired team. "I guess you can call it that. I'm sick of missing opportunities."

Candace Buckner

David West: "We had our type of game to win and we blew it."

Candace Buckner

Shots fired at Stevens? MT @BallinWithBryan: Rondo: "I’ve been here 24 hrs and I probably practiced more in 24 hrs than I have all season."

Candace Buckner

#Pacers did not get hurt on the break (DEN scored 9 FB points) but says something how team on 2nd night of back to back had energy @ the end

Candace Buckner

In changing "luck" for tomorrow, I suggest getting more than 13 points from three starters. #Pacers shot 30.7% and missed 61 (!) shots

Candace Buckner

"... That’s where my focus is on tomorrow." - Hibbert after picking up bad fouls thruout his 23 mins tonight. 0 pts, 5 rebs, 0 blocks.

Candace Buckner

Hibbert: "I’m going 2 change my luck somehow, if it’s not on the offensive end, I’ve got 2 b more of an elite player on the defensive end...

Candace Buckner

Hibbert on 0-fer game: "I got to take full responsibility. I couldn’t get into a rhythm, I just haven’t been playing the way I have been."

Candace Buckner

Surprisingly, this isn't the lowest scoring game of the NBA season, but both IND & DEN set their season lows tonight.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers take the 76-73 loss - their season low for points - and fall to 8-19 this season.

Scott Agness

Rebounding is all about effort and desire. #Pacers get that every night from Lavoy Allen (6 & 10 tonight).

Candace Buckner

Donald Sloan with .6 to go hits the 3 pointer and #Pacers trail 74-73

Candace Buckner

Only 13 seconds left and the #Pacers need 4 points to tie the game. Difficult task considering how this game has been.

Candace Buckner

Lavoy Allen offensive rebound and layup. Indy down 74-70

Candace Buckner

Teams are an identical 12 for 17 from the FT line

Candace Buckner

Last night's game between DEN-LAC got chippy. Now we've got double technical fouls on Faried and West

Scott Agness

Scott Foster is gonna Scott Foster. He doesn't mesh well with Vogel, seems to always T him up. #TForYou

Candace Buckner

On cue, Miles knocks down a long jumper. #Nuggets now up 65-62

Scott Agness

Got the Pacers game on now & see the big fella hasn't scored. 1st thought, "What are you doing! You 7-foot-2…" from caller on @Grady's show

Candace Buckner

Mozgov tip-n dunk and Frank Vogel picks up his second 4th Q technical foul in as many games. DEN now up 65-60

Candace Buckner

Mozgov blocks Hibbert and leads to Arron Afflalo's bucket. Tied game at 60

Scott Agness

Basketball world is a small community. In my Queens hotel, ran into frmr #iuwbb coach Felisha Legette-Jack and @WNBA official Denise Brooks.

Candace Buckner

After 3-second violation, #Pacers up 60-58 at the 8:57 mark.

Scott Agness

Great finish in Dallas, as the Mavs got a big win over the Spurs. Rondo fills a missing piece. Really like the Mavs' core.

Candace Buckner

Overheard near press row. Denver fan: "C'mon, Nuggets. This is the Pacers." He then turns to me & says, "I thought this was a sure thing."

Candace Buckner

Hibbert back in to start the 4th Q and Rudez starts with a 3-pointer. When his name is announced in arena, fan next to me says: "Who?"

Candace Buckner

Denver's got jokes. A crowd in the stands chants "We Want Tacos!" Fans get em if team scores 110 points... It's a 55-55 game after 3rd Q

Candace Buckner

#Pacers doing it again at the free throw line, just 10 for 15 tonight.

Candace Buckner

West with a long outlet pass to Rudez for the layup. #Pacers down 53-51 with less than 2 to go in the quarter

Candace Buckner

Is there anything more desperate than wildly waving at the cheerleaders who run to the tunnel? C'mon, fellas. Don't obey the thirst.

Candace Buckner

David West imitating Gallinari's knee kick as he drove to the rim & scored. But refs still give foul to S. Hill. 3 point play & DEN up 51-47

Candace Buckner

Solomon Hill's commitment to the Euro Step this season has been both admirable and puzzling.

Candace Buckner

Miles and S. Hill joining David West in the scoring column. Two have combined for 8 points this quarter.

Candace Buckner

My word, when you sell out… sell OUT! LMFAO must've done a "Shots, Shots, Shots" song for every NBA city #nowplaying "Shots" Denver edition

Candace Buckner

This has not been the game to revel in the beauty of the center position. Denver's Timofey Mozgov with just 2 points … but 3 blocks

Candace Buckner

Hibbert: 14 mins, 0 points (0 for 3), 3 rebounds, 4 fouls. Turning into a redux of his Jan. 25 game here. Very ineffective w/ foul trouble

Candace Buckner

Correction: Hibbert is scoreless (I was looking at Stuckey's points).

Candace Buckner

Now, Hibbert draws a fourth foul on an offensive foul in the post. He sits at 8 min mark, with 4 points and 0-3 from field

Candace Buckner

Many of the #Pacers sets start with a big up high on the floor, but you hate to see Hibbert that far away. Gets picked easily by Lawson

Candace Buckner

David West with a man's move on Faried in the post. The Manimal fouls, while West schools. 3-point opportunity and 4th foul for Faried.

Candace Buckner

Does any other song kick off the second half better than "Welcome To The Jungle?" I think not.

Pacers score just 12 in second quarter, but lead at halftime in Denver, 33-32. No, the defense wasn't that good.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers score 12 points in the 2nd Q, their fewest of the seson and yet somehow still lead 33-32 at halftime.

Candace Buckner

For real this time. RT @JonathanTjarks: LaMarcus Aldridge should be in the MVP discussion.

Candace Buckner

If you're wondering, #Pacers lowest 2nd Q scoring total of the season: 15. Right now, they're at 8

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert was still in mid-move off the baseline as the shot clock buzzer went off. Awareness, y'all.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert checking back in at the 6:26 mark. #Pacers holding slight 25-23 lead… just four points through nearly the midway point of the Q

Candace Buckner

Who else is excited for this Seattle on Seattle matchup of Nate Robinson and Rodney Stuckey?

Candace Buckner

CJ Miles beats the buzzer with a catch and shoot 3-pointer, while floating to the side. #Pacers lead 21-15. Thin air be damned.

Candace Buckner

David West again… he's up to 11 points. Season high is 18 points from his season debut on Nov. 28

Candace Buckner

Hibbert, who fouled out here the last time, already has picked up two personals. Sits down before midway point of the 1st Q

Candace Buckner

Wilson Chandler's size at the wing could be problematic for Solomon Hill to defend.

Mark Montieth

Let's go with, theoretically, a good time to play the Nuggets, the night after they beat the Clippers.

Candace Buckner

David West does not care about the #Nuggets scouting report, stating that he's old. Old Man West has 9 of #Pacers 11 & twice as much as DEN

Mark Montieth

Sloan does some things Stuckey or Watson can't do. Like that layup he just got in the halfcourt offense.

Candace Buckner

Donald Sloan to the rim for the first points for the #Pacers from someone other than David West. Indy up 9-4

Candace Buckner

West and Scola have been spotting up frequently for those corner 3s; different wrinkle for the 4s in #Pacers set. West knocks it down, 7-2

Candace Buckner

First foul on Kenneth Faried while battling David West for a rebound

Candace Buckner

Exactly what the #Pacers can't have happen. Solomon Hill starts first possession with a bad pass turnover, leading to a DEN fast break

Candace Buckner

Everything abt this pic is fierce: Manimal action figure, throwback Mutumbo jersey & kid's no nonsense pose. http://t.co/FHUOHCudlp

Candace Buckner

In pregame, Vogel said again how important it was for team to get in a practice in this thin air. Here's Fri's story indy.st/1APxlhN

Candace Buckner

Rudy Tom Award nba.com/pacers/news/fr… Pay no mind to my look of disinterest. Photographer caught a bad moment - or I suck at picture taking

Candace Buckner

DEN's Brian Shaw might give Vogel a run for the Rudy Tomjanovich Award. Or at least make All-NBA Coach Interview First Team. Guy's a gem.

Candace Buckner

DEN coach Brian Shaw w/ the realest of the real scouting reports: "I told Kenneth Faried abt (D West's) age & how he has an advantage."

Candace Buckner

C.J. Watson is out tonight vs #Nuggets. Donald Sloan starts at point guard

Candace Buckner

Brian Shaw (former #Pacers asst) conducting pregame interview, trash talks Paul George as he walks by: "He's a fisherman, I'm a catcherman."

Doyel: For a day, Hoosiers quiet the Brad Stevens noise indy.st/1ARVYds via @indystar

Scott Agness

His yr keeps getting worse. RT @Charlotte Hornets [Coach] Clifford says that Stephenson (pelvic sprain) will most likely be out until after Christmas.

Michael Pointer

Former #Purdue defensive coordinator Brock Spack and #iufb quarterback Tre Roberson will play for FCS national title.

Michael Pointer

Here is my colleague @ZachOsterman's quick game story: Indiana defeats No. 23 #Butler 82-73 indy.st/1ARIlv2 via @indystar

Michael Pointer

I haven't seen IU much, but seems like opportunity is knocking for Hoosiers. Big Ten is WIDE open after Wisconsin.

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans: A few of you have called me negative. I picked #Butler publicly these last two games. I am out of the prediction business.

Michael Pointer

Now, the Tennessee game. . .That one stings. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Can't fault #Butler's effort. Barlow getting in foul trouble was major. I don't think this one will hurt much on Selection Sunday. . .

Michael Pointer

#Butler didn't do a great job of defending the 3 and got a little worn out in the second half. Lack of depth still an issue.

Michael Pointer

Final score: Indiana 82, #Butler 73. IU was the better team today. It got the game at its pace. Shut down Dunham in the second half.

Michael Pointer

OK, this is interesting. IU calls timeout twice while failing to inbounds ball. Hoosiers have just one left. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Indiana also got 22 points from its bench compared to just 11 for #Butler. Again, Hoosiers have done a better job playing to their strengths

Michael Pointer

Indiana 78, #Butler 73, 50 seconds left. Timeout Bulldogs. Indiana will have the ball. Time to start fouling for Butler.

Michael Pointer

Really stupid foul there by IU. Totally stopped the clock for #Butler.

Michael Pointer

Dunham has been held to five points in second half. Getting a reliable second offensive option remains a big concern for #Butler.

Michael Pointer

Indiana 76, #Butler 70, 1:34 left. Bulldogs have the ball and are not out of it, but have to play a near-perfect 94 seconds.

Michael Pointer

Looks like IU is going to get this game into the 80s. I thought #Butler had little chance if that happened.

Michael Pointer

Really tough day offensively for Roosevelt Jones. Just 4-for-14 and missed a huge layup a couple of minutes ago. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Chrabascz hits a 3-pointer to cut IU's lead to 76-68 with 2:51 left. Timeout #Butler.

Michael Pointer

Not much difference in box score except for one category: IU is 7-for-15 from 3-point range. #Butler is 2-for-11.

Michael Pointer

#Butler had it down to 2, but two turnovers lead to two IU baskets at other end. Indiana 71, Butler 65, 4:47 left, timeout Bulldogs.

Michael Pointer

Barlow is back in. Think Holtmann wanted to wait a few more minutes, but he really had no choice. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Indiana 65, #Butler 61, 7:53 left. Hoosiers have the tempo like they want it. Spreading the floor. But plenty of time left.

Michael Pointer

Think Holtmann has to get Barlow back in the game out of this media timeout. IU really has things going its way now. #butler

Michael Pointer

Good move by IU. Ferrell saw Jackson Aldridge was in the game and took it right at him. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Looked like a clean block to me. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Couple of good hustle plays by Etherington there. Cleans up on offensive boards, saves ball into Jones. #Butler 55, Indiana 52, 11:53 left.

Michael Pointer

Going to be interesting to see how Holtmann manages his bench with Barlow out with four fouls. #Butler
