Indiana Pacers Rumors
Shams Charania: Sources @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium: The Indiana Pacers are signing guard Stephan Hicks from G League affiliate Fort Wayne on a 10-day contract.
Tommy Beer: Per @Basketball-Reference, Total number of CAREER games with at least 48 points, 8 rebounds and 5 made 3-pointers: LeBron: 4. Kobe Bryant: 4. Kevin Durant: 3. Michael Jordan: 1. Steph Curry: zero. Larry Bird: zero. Total games THIS WEEK with at least 48 pts, 8 rebs and 5 3PT’s: James Harden: 3
Scott Agness: Good time for the Pacers to play the Mavericks. They won 111-99 led by 19 points from Tyreke Evans. Sabonis had 16/11. Most starters played ~25m with another game tomorrow night vs Hornets.
Scott Agness: Rookie Luka Doncic is the Mavs’ leading scorer (20.3ppg). Coach Rick Carlisle said one of the next stages in his growth is to value the defensive end as much as the offensive end. Pacers plan to throw Victor Oladipo on him to begin the game.
Dwain Price: Someone just asked Carlisle if there are comparisons between Larry Bird and Luka: “There’s are certain similarities. Guys like that anticipate and see things coming before they happen. And at times that could get away from you a little bit and get a little too expeditious.” #Mavs
