While I was captivated by headbands, the #Pacers have opened an 18-point lead in Orlando

Scott Agness

Four players touch the ball on a fast break, ending in a layup by Luis Scola. Pacers up 15.

Candace Buckner

Because I'm so fascinated with accessories, it appears that Evan Turner has found his headband. I give it 5 mins b/4 it pops off again

Scott Agness

As expected, George Hill and Roy Hibbert appear done for the night. Sloan and Allen on the floor to start the second half.

Scott Agness

Great finish to the first half: Scola bombs a pass to Butler for a slam dunk. Pacers 46-40. Hill: 5p, 4r Hibbert: 4p, 7r

Candace Buckner

G. Hill's commitment to the headband through this half - when everyone else around him has shed theirs - is commendable. #GHillforTeamMVP

Candace Buckner

#Pacers shooting 50 percent from the 3-point line

Scott Agness

Hibbert gets his first field goal to drop at the 5min mark of the 2nd quarter. Pacers and Magic knotted at 35.

Candace Buckner

Roy first touch since checking back in and gets a baby hook in the lane. That'll do.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert abandons the headband, he's back on the floor for the final 5:29. #INDIVIDUALITY

Candace Buckner

Is it just me or does it seem that Evan's 3-pointers fall with much more ease when he's playing strictly with 2nd unit guys? (see also: MKE)

Candace Buckner

Evan Turner baseline drie and then a drop off to Lavoy Allen for the dunk. Why is that play impossible involving Roy Hibbert?

Scott Agness

Solomon Hill nails a 3-pointer to end the 1st. Pacers 25, Magic 20. Roy Hibbert is 0-for-5, but has 5rebs. GHill with 3p, 2s.

Mark Montieth

Of course that three-pointer from @Solomon Hill will soothe some doubts.

Candace Buckner

Rookie Solomon Hill beats the buzzer with the 3-pointer and #Pacers lead 25-20. So far, extra time b4 playoffs haven't helped Roy (0/5)

Mark Montieth

Good to see nobody has called Solomon Hill a bust, as they did Plumlee last season. As always, you only prove you can't play if you play.

Candace Buckner

Jason Maxiell is fairly larger than I remember him

Candace Buckner

3:04 remaining left, the #Pacers and #Magic 17-17. Roy still struggling to get going. 0 for 13 since Sunday (0-9 vs OKC and missed 4 here)

Scott Agness

Pacers on a 9-0 run, and with their first lead, 17-15. 4mins left in the 1st. Scola has six points.

Mark Montieth

If you're GHill or RHibbert, are you thinking, "I can go for 30 tonight!" Or, are you thinking, "What am I doing out here with these guys?"

Candace Buckner

G. Hill gets on the board with a spot-up 3. George knocking down and TAKING open shots -= good thing. #Pacers down 15-11 at the 5:45 mark.

Candace Buckner

Evan Turner, wearing his headband on the top of his head, goes less than 5 minutes before it pops off

Candace Buckner

I think a little aggressiveness - shall I even venture to say "selfishness" - would serve Hill well for this half. Gotta get going b4 ATL

Candace Buckner

G. Hill makes right basketball play to kick out to open Scola for the jumper, then dishes to Hibbert. Hasn't attempted a shot yet

Scott Agness

George Hill looking like his old IUPUI-self rocking the headband. Look for Hill and Hibbert to get early touches and play calls.

Candace Buckner

Again, that's just a guess. Time hasn't been determined yet. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

#Pacers-Hawks game could depend on the scheduling of the ABC game (LAC-GSW). Once that is determined, #Pacers could be noon or 5:30 p.m slot

Candace Buckner

Okay, guys, we have to wait and see when #Pacers play but here's a good guess from someone who has knowledge of ESPN/ABC scheduling...

Scott Agness

Interesting, #Pacers all wearing headbands for pregame warmups.
