HoopsHype Indiana Pacers twitter
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."
David West: "We had our type of game to win and we blew it."
"... 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.
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...
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."
Surprisingly, this isn't the lowest scoring game of the NBA season, but both IND & DEN set their season lows tonight.
Lavoy Allen offensive rebound and layup. Indy down 74-70
Teams are an identical 12 for 17 from the FT line
Last night's game between DEN-LAC got chippy. Now we've got double technical fouls on Faried and West
Mozgov tip-n dunk and Frank Vogel picks up his second 4th Q technical foul in as many games. DEN now up 65-60
Mozgov blocks Hibbert and leads to Arron Afflalo's bucket. Tied game at 60
Great finish in Dallas, as the Mavs got a big win over the Spurs. Rondo fills a missing piece. Really like the Mavs' core.
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."
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?"
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
Is there anything more desperate than wildly waving at the cheerleaders who run to the tunnel? C'mon, fellas. Don't obey the thirst.
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
Solomon Hill's commitment to the Euro Step this season has been both admirable and puzzling.
Miles and S. Hill joining David West in the scoring column. Two have combined for 8 points this quarter.
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
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
Correction: Hibbert is scoreless (I was looking at Stuckey's points).
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
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.
Does any other song kick off the second half better than "Welcome To The Jungle?" I think not.
Sunday's One on One is a compilation of unaired segments from previous guests on notable sports figures. (cont.)
Pacers score just 12 in second quarter, but lead at halftime in Denver, 33-32. No, the defense wasn't that good.
Roy Hibbert was still in mid-move off the baseline as the shot clock buzzer went off. Awareness, y'all.
Who else is excited for this Seattle on Seattle matchup of Nate Robinson and Rodney Stuckey?
David West again… he's up to 11 points. Season high is 18 points from his season debut on Nov. 28
Hibbert, who fouled out here the last time, already has picked up two personals. Sits down before midway point of the 1st Q
Wilson Chandler's size at the wing could be problematic for Solomon Hill to defend.
Let's go with, theoretically, a good time to play the Nuggets, the night after they beat the Clippers.
Go West, old man.
Sloan does some things Stuckey or Watson can't do. Like that layup he just got in the halfcourt offense.
First foul on Kenneth Faried while battling David West for a rebound
Everything abt this pic is fierce: Manimal action figure, throwback Mutumbo jersey & kid's no nonsense pose. http://t.co/FHUOHCudlp
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.
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."
I haven't seen IU much, but seems like opportunity is knocking for Hoosiers. Big Ten is WIDE open after Wisconsin.
