Double Ts on Stuckey and Biyombo. #Pacers ball down 34-24

Candace Buckner

Ian Mahinmi's slow to get up after collision but tells #Pacers trainier he's alright. Stuckey and Biyombo get into as well.

Conrad Brunner

As Mahinmi airballs a FT, I have to wonder if the roof is open here at the Bank. Or maybe the window.

Conrad Brunner

Lance tries okie-doke on Damo, spins and throws up airball from 8 feet.

Candace Buckner

Biyombo catches an alley oop then cleans up a miss w an offensive reb throw down. Good start for a guy Clifford called out earlier this yr

Mark Montieth

Fans tried to engage Lance in conversation by Hornets bench. He said nothing, smiled at one comment.

Chris Singleton

The way you talk, YOUUUU got ittt

Conrad Brunner

After 12-4 start by #Pacers, #Hornets provide 24-8 finish to take 28-20 lead after one. Lance-ometer at 4.

Mark Montieth

Lance still stands at the bench. Should have gone down by Bird, maybe?

Candace Buckner

#Pacers close the final 4:41 of the quarter with one field goal and they're down 28-20 to the #Hornets.

Candace Buckner

First time with A.J. Price and Rodney Stuckey on the floor together

Candace Buckner

After Walker baseline jumper, #Pacers coach Frank Vogel calls time-out. #Hornets have taken over the lead 22-18

Candace Buckner

Bad possession from start to finish on that last one

Candace Buckner

With Walker, Roberts on the court, you'd want the #Pacers to take advantage of these smallish #Hornets guards -- esp Stuckey

Mark Montieth

Looking forward to Stuckey - Stephenson match-up. Similar athletes.

Candace Buckner

Lance series of events: a stepback, a block on Roy, then a PUJIT. Afterwards, no scowl, but he's fired up for sure after the booing

Mark Montieth

And as soon as I say that... Lance scores twice.

Candace Buckner

Mad Lance is in the building, y'all.

Scott Agness

After Lance picked up a foul, @PacersG2 mocked him by chanting, "He's not ready."

Mark Montieth

Seems the Hornets are going to go at Hibbert all night. No wonder Lance isn't scoring as much.

Candace Buckner

G2 Zone, after Lance Stephenson picks up first foul, chants: "HE'S NOT READY!"

Conrad Brunner

More cheers than boos for #Pacemates, so we know they're way more popular with tonight's #Pacers crowd than Lance or Cody. But it's early.

Candace Buckner

5:58 to go in 1st Q, #Pacers off to a 12-8 start. Only one significant touch for Lance Stephenson so far, and it was a turnover.

Candace Buckner

Zeller about to check in for Marvin Williams. And HE GETS SOME BOOS! Ok. Why?

Candace Buckner

Hibbert knocks down another 15 footer and turns back making one of those "Ooooo" faces. Big Dawg's feeling himself with 7 points

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola wight he make over Marvin Williams and a foul. #Pacers up 10-4 with 8:18 to go in 1st Q

Scott Agness

Majority of boos coming from @PacersArea55, @PacersG2, the team's two official fan sections. Booing Lance every time he has the ball.

Candace Buckner

Early foul on Al Jefferson, sending Hibbert to the line. #Pacers got to know to go right back to Roy now

Candace Buckner

To me, it seems that the fans who cheered went out of their way to block out the boos.

Conrad Brunner

If others say 50/50, I'll go with that. From where I was sitting, the boos drowned the cheers.

Candace Buckner

Conrad Brunner

More boos than cheers for Lance. Hmmm.

Conrad Brunner

ICYMI: We should never forget The Brawl, but current #Pacers can barely remember it. bit.ly/1uQkyLK

Scott Agness

Talked w/ Ian Mahinmi about what Lance is facing. Said it was exhausting for him in San Antonio. Overthink it & have so many requests.

Conrad Brunner

Stuckey returns for #Pacers tonight. Will come off the bench until conditioning catches up. Solo draws the matchup on Lance.

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets Clifford still very high on Vonleh's potential, "but he’s got to learn the NBA game and there’s no shortcut for that."

Mark Montieth

Super agent David Falk in the house tonight. Among his clients, Roy Hibbert.

Conrad Brunner

As for Lance, #Hornets Clifford said focus has been on "how to channel his competitiveness." Good times.

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets Clifford said Zeller has been one of the real bright spots for team so far. Shooting better, playing with more confidence.

Conrad Brunner

#Hornets Steve Clifford said Vonleh missed too much preseason/camp time with injury and "doesn't have grasp" of scheme to play regularly.

Conrad Brunner

Vogel on why Lance shouldn't be booed: "He put his heart and soul into this franchise for 4 years ... he should receive a warm welcome."

Scott Agness

As @DaveFurst noted, ref Ron Garretson, who officiated The Brawl 10 years ago today, was assigned tonight's #Pacers game. Coincidence?

Mark Montieth

Vogel on @StephnsonLance: "He poured his heart and soul into this franchise for four years and I think he should receive a warm welcome."

Candace Buckner

Zeller, entrenched in #Hornets rotation, has averaged 7.9 ppg and 5.4 rpg in his second season.

Candace Buckner

#Hornets coach Steve Clifford on Cody Zeller: "I think he's been, through 11 games, one of our real bright spots." #iubb

Candace Buckner

More Vogel: "...I think he poured his heart and soul into this franchise for four years and I think he should receive a warm welcome."

Candace Buckner

Vogel: "No, I don’t. Nor do I think he should. This is a business, everybody comes a free agent and has to make personal decisions…"

Candace Buckner

Vogel weighs in on if Lance will be booed tonight by #Pacers fans (and I agree w/ his main points here) ...

Scott Agness

Lance and Pacers assistant Popeye Jones catching up… @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse instagram.com/p/vmULJeF5RL/

Candace Buckner

Vogel on Stuckey: "It’s going to be a matter of not watching his injury but watching his wind. We feel like the injury’s behind him."

Candace Buckner

#Pacers coach Frank Vogel reiterated that Rodney Stuckey good to play long minutes tonight in his return from a sore foot.

Mark Montieth

Charlotte coach Clifford: I love Noah (Vonleh) and his potential, but he hasn't had nearly enough practice time. He doesn't have a grasp ..

Scott Agness

Coach Clifford on Cody Zeller: "Through 11 games, he's been one of our real bright spots." Said offseason work on his shot is paying off.

Scott Agness

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said he talks regularly with Lance about channeling his competitiveness, staying focused on the right things.

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson starts at the three tonight vs the #Pacers

Paul George

Nice comes with donuts? RT @PacersDMB: Intern, @Paul George complained about no seat card and credential. Well, shut up! http://t.co/pLMZDAPcQo

Scott Agness

Rodney Stuckey will play off the bench at shooting guard. Big thing Vogel wants his guys to improve upon is passing on target.

Mark Montieth

PJ Hairston out for Charlotte tonight.

Candace Buckner

#Hornets rookie P.J. Hairston not available today, what remains among the 5 CHA rotational wings are three point guards.

Mark Montieth

One of several pictures you're likely to see of @Lance Stephenson tonight. http://t.co/aqg6pDkgYJ

Scott Agness

Lance Stephenson's former teammates are expecting a little something something tonight from Sir Lancealot bit.ly/1vprEII

Scott Agness

Pacers-Hornets tonight. Both teams have the same record. #Pacers have won 3 of 4; Hornets coming off a 27-pt loss. Lance, Cody, Noah in town

Conrad Brunner

Why was a guy with 11 career return TDs available? Cribbs also has 34 career fumbles. #Colts

Paul George

Shoutout them duke boys.. Big win last night also enjoyed catching up with Coach K and Mrs. K! Top 5… instagram.com/p/vl7_HkHMmF/

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Toler came in Monday with a headache, no report of problem during game. Officially listed DTD.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Bortles big, strong, athletic, arm talent, good in option, can beat you a lot of different ways.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Cribbs has been used a lot of different ways. We'll prepare accordingly as we indoctrinate him.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Cribbs has experience, vision, talent, toughness, instincts.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Cribbs will probably be returning kicks this week.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Allen DTD, Cherilus, Wayne, DJackson rest, Richardson ill, Toler concussion protocol.

Scott Agness

Lance’s message to #Pacers fans: "I just want to say thank you for helping me play hard.” Read more (plus video): bit.ly/1yp98hn

Scott Agness

Vogel on what Stephenson’s reception may be: "I don’t expect any boos and if there’s boos, then it’s wrong. He’s part of the family."

Scott Agness

Frank Vogel: "I’m very fond of Lance and I want to see him to do well in his career and in his life — just not tonight."

Scott Agness

Stephenson still hasn’t spoken with Larry Bird since he left. "Hopefully I’ll see him today to say what’s up & see how he’s doing,” he said.

Scott Agness

Zeller: "I'm getting more and more comfortable, and more confident in my second year. I kind of know what to expect throughout the season."

Scott Agness

Cody Zeller excited to be back. His parents have a suite again and he got 15 other tickets + 50 post-game passes. #iubb

Candace Buckner

#Pacers G Rodney Stuckey said he's a go tonight for as long as he's needed. Foot feels fine.

Scott Agness

C.J. Miles (calf strain) out, Rodney Stuckey will play. Solomon Hill will get the first crack at guarding Lance.

Candace Buckner

Lance Stephenson meeting with local media right now. @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse instagram.com/p/vlkkAsAc4_/

Scott Agness

Known for a while but now that it’s official, congrats to @KenSothman on joining @FSIndiana as the pre-game producer for #Pacers games.

Conrad Brunner

For current #Pacers, The Brawl a distant, foggy memory. And that's a good thing. bit.ly/1uQkyLK http://t.co/nUnUjUHEf9

My back tire blew out near 38th and Keystone on way home from #Butler. Why can't these things happen at 2 in the afternoon?

Michael Pointer

My Insider column off tonight's game. Just call it an "old-school #Butler win." indy.st/1uOqvbX via @indystar

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans: Here's my quick story at game's end. We'll have a follow up in about an hour. Late night. indy.st/1uOqvbX via @indystar

Paul George

Good catching up to my brother Born Ready.. Happy for the kid even tho we know where he should still… instagram.com/p/vkZjRwnMlR/

Michael Pointer

Forgot to get this in my first run story, but Kameron Woods had a career-high 16 rebounds. Thought he played very well defensively. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Final: #Butler 70, Chattanooga 48. Dunham finishes with 26.

Michael Pointer

Chattanooga isn't very good at the line either and isn't going near as much. Just 7-for-12. #Butler leads 47-39 with 4:23 left.

Scott Agness

Lakers won, Swaggy P speaks

Michael Pointer

#Butler on 7-0 run, lead 50-36 with 7:19 left. Dunham with a nice move to draw two defenders, feeds to Chrabascz for a 3-pointer.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 41, Chattanooga 31, 11:37 left. Tyler Wideman doing some good work in the second half for the Bulldogs.

Michael Pointer

Judging from my Twitter feed, I can assume that Kentucky is pretty good, no??

Michael Pointer

#Butler 34, Chattanooga 27, 15:44 left. Kellen Dunham with 14 points and 5-for-6 from line. Rest of the Bulldogs are 4-for-12.
