Larry Bird says Paul George was in yesterday, was sore. “I think mentally it was a good start for him."

Candace Buckner

#Pacers president of bkb operations Larry Bird said all 6 FAs said they wanted to be here; have to wait till summer to figure things out

Greg Rappaport

Currently waiting on Larry Bird and Frank Vogel for their final presser of the 2014-15 season.

Scott Agness

Good morning from the Fieldhouse. Season wrap-up interviews with #Pacers Larry Bird and Frank Vogel… instagram.com/p/1lHlzLF5Vy/

Watching 30 for 30 short reminds me one is to be done on Pacers telethon. I was called a few months ago to provide names of interviewees.

Scott Agness

Pacers' Shayne Whittington with 7pts (3-5 FGs), 6rebs, 2blks in 24mins tonight with @TheMadAnts in Game 1 of the conference finals.

Michael Pointer

The 6-3 Gardner led Kansas in scoring, rebounding, blocks and field-goal percentage this season. Was a first-team all-Big 12 choice.

Greg Rappaport

The Indiana Fever make their selection in the 2015 draft: Chelsea Gardner, a 6-3 forward and double-double machine.

Michael Pointer

Indiana Fever select Kansas forward Chelsea Gardner with the 21st pick in the WNBA Draft. #indianafever

Greg Rappaport

Jewell Loyd from Notre Dame gets picked #1 overall in this year's WNBA Draft. She nice.

Michael Pointer

I'm on WNBA and @indianafever draft duty tonight. Our local team has just one pick and it's No. 21 overall. Not a ton of drama this year.

Michael Pointer

With that in mind, let me put my journalistic objectivity aside for a minute just to yell: LET'S GO BLUES!!! Make this the year for the Cup.

Michael Pointer

I love the NCAA tournament, but the Stanley Cup playoffs remain my favorite event. The tension is almost unbearable.

Scott Agness

NBA and NBPA has agreed to HGH testing under the league’s anti-drug program.

Scott Agness

Brad Stevens named Eastern Conf. Coach of the Month after leading the Celtics to a 7-1 record in April. #Pacers Frank Vogel was a nominee.

Candace Buckner

So strange after months and months of flights and hotel reservations filling my iCal, now the next event on my phone is simply: "Earth Day"

Conrad Brunner

Paul George says he's "fine," but #Pacers roster needs offseason surgery. bit.ly/1DneHAF

May 19th. RT @Evan_Ausbrooks: @Scott Agness When is the actual lottery?

Candace Buckner

Free agent-to-be C.J. Watson missed 24 games with various ailments. All told, #Pacers lost 219 games to injuries. http://t.co/xkFND3OBPD

Scott Agness

Tiebreaker drawing is tomorrow. RT @jaytweed1: @Scott Agness when is the tie-breaker decided between pacers and jazz? #morepingpongballs

Candace Buckner

From last night, several #Pacers viewed injuries as what shipwrecked the season. Luis Scola does not. http://t.co/QAMsC5n19S

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have several players becoming free agents, including Luis Scola. His thoughts on the future & past http://t.co/f9bdlvlw88

Scott Agness

Mission accomplished for @Mark_J_Boyle. He went 199 days — from the start of camp until season’s end — w/o a drink. bit.ly/1JKVR8O

Donald Sloan

I wanna thk the @Indiana Pacers, pacernation & the great state of Indiana for having me we fell short of our goal but the future is bright.....IM UP

Candace Buckner

Interesting stat gleaned from @Michael Lee story last week: #Pacers only 5th team in NBA history to fall frm No. 1 in conf to lottery bound

Scott Agness

NBA set all-time attendance record, with nearly 22M fans. That's up 2.4%, the highest increase since 1995-96. 700 sellouts (14 from Pacers).

Scott Agness

Pacers' "Year of Discovery" concludes in Memphis. What we learned: bit.ly/1FVrk6Q

Candace Buckner

While #Pacers' season was coming to an end, Paul George heard a "pop." George strains left calf, carried off floor indy.st/1CP7AOR

Conrad Brunner

George fine, but #Pacers roster needs surgery. bit.ly/1DneHAF @grady @dandakich @JMV1070 @1070thefan http://t.co/QwLXZEBGu9

Damjan Rudez

To say that I am proud of being a part of this team would be a big understatement. Very excited about our future! Thanks to ALL our fans!!!

Mark Montieth

Lance Stephenson sets NBA record for worst 3point percentage, .171. Shot .352 last season for Pacers.

#Pacers Paul George on injury: 'I knew it wasn't nothing good' indy.st/1yxnHUY via @indystar

Scott Agness

#Pacers players thank fans via social media bit.ly/1PQBF9S

Mark Montieth

Pacers have <1% chance at top draft pick. If it were my call, I'd send Slick out for the lottery. If anyone could do it ...

CJ Watson

Sucks not to be out there with fellas tonight but they fought hard. Tough year with all the injuries but no ... tmi.me/1f316c

Mark Montieth

In other news, Ringo Starr is doing Skechers TV spots? Didn't expect that. Props to the 70-plus drummer.

David West

For everyone who supported this team this year....Thank You...Ups and downs...Good times and Bad...We are grateful

Scott Agness

#Pacers season concludes in Memphis, one win short. A snapshot of what we learned: bit.ly/1FVrk6Q

Paul George

I've grown so much this year and learned a lot.. And I WILL grow again!

Paul George

Thank you Memphis and all my fans!! It's been my toughest year by far but looking forward to my greatest summer ahead!

Candace Buckner

To be exact, players have exit interviews with front office but this is not for media.

Candace Buckner

No exit interviews. This was their last media availability. twitter.com/adijoseph/stat…

Candace Buckner

Most players I talked to mentioned rash of injuries that ultimately did in the yr. Neither David West nor Hibbert spoke after the game.

Mark Montieth

Pacer free agents: Scola, Copeland, Watson, Stuckey, Sloan, Allen. Will be interesting to see how many are re-signed.

Mark Montieth

Best comparison to this season: 1996-97 when Smits and McKey out long stretches w/ injuries. Won 39 games in Larry Brown's last season.

Mark Montieth

I'm a junkie when it comes to covering basketball games. Gonna miss the action. Withdrawal is tough.

Conrad Brunner

All things considered, best news to come out of #Pacers locker room tonight. twitter.com/CandaceDBuckne…

Scott Agness

Back in the fall, I dubbed this Pacers season “The Year of Discovery.” And I think that’s exactly what it turned out to be.

Candace Buckner

Paul George said he felt a pop in left calf. Said its fine but a calf strain

Mark Montieth

About a hundred what-ifs to this Pacers season beyond injuries. Exceeded expectations of most overall, but so many fine lines.

Mark Montieth

Miles led scoring last 3 games: 30-25-26. Biggest surprise of season. Slow start hurt shooting percentages, better all-around than I thought

Scott Agness

Stat of the night (or season)… RT @John Schuhmann: Final season-long point differential... Nets: -236 Pacers: +23

Conrad Brunner

Nothing like sharing a game night with #Pacers fans on Twitter. You guys are the best.

Conrad Brunner

Neither expected to exercise his option. Would leave too much money on table. twitter.com/jeddylee_14/st…

Conrad Brunner

At least none of the #Pacemates has purple hair. #irrationalizing

Scott Agness

Finishing 9th, just on the outside of the playoffs, is worst-case scenario. Bright side: Finished 10th in 2010, drafted Paul George.

Scott Agness

Pacers' (38-44) season is over as they fall in Memphis, 95-83. First time under Frank Vogel — 5 years — they haven't reached the playoffs.

Candace Buckner

It all comes to an end in Memphis. #Pacers lose 95-83 to the Grizzlies, ending their playoff hopes. BKN advances as 8th seed

Greg Rappaport

An avalanche of injuries & this Pacers team fought and was in contention for the playoffs until the seasons final game. A lot to be proud of

Conrad Brunner

Both have player options. Neither expected to exercise. twitter.com/emacinfishers/…

Candace Buckner

#Pacers not emptying bench yet, but Rudež coming in for Hibbert

Conrad Brunner

Win 1 of those last 4 games against #Nets and #Celtics, and Damo and Whittington start for #Pacers tonight. That's when season really lost.

Conrad Brunner

2 chances for #Pacers to make it a 2-possession game: 1) Couldn't get a D reb; 2) GHill throws it away.

Candace Buckner

Jeff Green's layup just may be the last nail in the #Pacers' season. #Grizzlies up 89-79 and he's going to the FT line w/ 2:19 remaining.

Conrad Brunner

... absolutely nobody can get a rebound when they need one.

Conrad Brunner

Meanwhile, back on the court ...

Scott Agness

Paul George has been favoring his left leg, even landing on it the other night after his 2 dunks. Strains will occur when over-compensating

Conrad Brunner

When was the last time a guy had to be carried off the court, and to locker room, with a sore calf? @SprtsInjryAlert

Mark Montieth

Sore left calf for Paul George. Return questionable. (I'd say doubtful.) Still, good news in the grander scheme. Compensation, most likely.

Conrad Brunner

Sorry, trainers appear to be working on L leg of PG.

Candace Buckner

Per #Pacers, Paul George has a sore left calf. Questionable for return.

Scott Agness

Looks like asst. trainer Carl Eaton was evaluating Paul George's left* leg, not the one he fractured this summer.

Mark Montieth

Oh, my. Paul George carried to the bench.

Conrad Brunner

Uh-oh. PG needs to be helped off court with 10:37 left, no weight on right leg.

Scott Agness

Paul George having to be carried to the end of the bench. The night gets even worse...

Candace Buckner

Paul George is carried to the bench by Donald Sloan and David West.

Conrad Brunner

Gasol/Randolph=42 pts, 19 rbs Hibbert/West=9 pts, 7 rbs #optout

Scott Agness

Welp, Pacers down 12 with 12 minutes to play. G-Hill and CJ Miles shouldering the load.

Candace Buckner

End of 3rd Q: #Grizzlies ahead 73-61. The Gasol-Randolph front court has combined for 42 points.

Greg Rappaport

Marc Gasol has been a menace.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers trying to pressure the ball (led by Paul George's gambles) and it leads to a Gasol mismatch on G. Hill. It ends as a 3pt play

Michael Pointer

Did Jordan Morris look more than a little nervous in that post-game interview? Dude was shaking.

Mark Montieth

Paul George just doesn't have it tonight. Plays like that show the rust.

Candace Buckner

Nice sequence here with PG laying out for a steal (but missed) and ending with a G. Hill 3 pointer. #Pacers down 67-60

Conrad Brunner

Watching him land on L foot on every shot, as well as cheating on defensive stances, @Paul George playing very one-legged tonight.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have gotten a few stops in a row, but not enough. While not capitalizing with a run, Randolph backs down Mahinmi & MEM goes up 12

Conrad Brunner

One #Pacers player - @masfresco - has played winning basketball tonight. Everyone else, dreck.

Candace Buckner

5:16 remaining in the 3rd Q, #Grizzlies leading 65-53. MEM shooting 48.1%. Gasol (24 points and 10 rebs) Z-Bo (10 & 6)

Candace Buckner

MEM frontcourt is just too much for Hibbert and West. Not their fault, but #Pacers can't do anything to stop this

Greg Rappaport

CJ Miles is goin all in tonight
