Pacers Owner Would Welcome Stephenson Back, But “Bird Has To Decide”

Lance Stephenson, Solomon Hill

The Pacers lost Lance Stephenson to the Hornets this past summer when he inked a three-year, $27 million deal with owner Michael Jordan. But Stephenson has struggled with his shot, and the Hornets are at 6-18 so far after finishing 44-38 last season for a No. 7 seed in the playoffs. Pacers owner Herb Simon says he’d welcome Stephenson back with open arms, but it’s not his decision to make. Read More »

Watch Jamal Crawford’s Filthy Crossover Put C.J. Miles On His Butt

C.J. Miles, Jamal Crawford

Before we show you Jamal Crawford‘s crossover that put C.J. Miles on skates before he hit the deck, know that Crawford missed the ensuing three-point attempt. But he made a couple others — as you’ll see — for a team-high 18 points in LA’s rather ugly 103-96 win in Indiana last night. We don’t feel too bad singling out Miles, either, because he dropped a game-high 30 in the losing effort. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Lavoy Allen On P. George, Tim Duncan & “Crazy Rush” Of Playoff BBall

Lavoy Allen

The Indiana Pacers have quietly stayed within striking distance of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference despite a myriad of reasons why they should instead be in contention for a high lottery pick. Even more forgotten is one of their key reserves, Lavoy Allen, who has been an efficient player in their frontcourt while David West missed the start of the season. Read More »

Hearsay: Lance Stephenson Was Roy Hibbert’s Problem On The Pacers

Lance Stephenson, Solomon Hill, Roy Hibbert

The Charlotte Hornets — after making the playoffs last year and signing Lance Stephenson in the offseason as well as extending point guard Kemba Walker — enter tonight’s contest against the Warriors with a substandard 4-12 record. Recent reports suggest Stephenson was the cause of Roy Hibbert‘s ills last season and his presence in Charlotte is already wearing on them. Read More »

Mavs Call Home Loss To Short-Handed Pacers “Embarrassing,” “Horrific”

Dirk Nowitzki

No win in the NBA can be assumed – all 30 teams employ professional basketball players. And considering that logic, no loss should be overly disappointing, either. The Dallas Mavericks don’t subscribe to the latter line of thinking. After falling to the Roy Hibbert-less Indiana Pacers 111-100 at American Airlines Center on Monday, Chandler Parsons and Dirk Nowitzki offered pointed words to describe the game’s outcome.

Video: Brandan Wright Smashes On Luis Scola

Luis Scola, Brandan Wright

The Pacers got a surprising 111-100 win over the Mavericks in Dallas last night. Guard Donald Sloan played the game of his life — 29 points on 10-for-14 shooting — and a well—rounded attack stymied Dallas’ high-scoring offense. The win was even more impressive when you consider Roy Hibbert missed his first game in 1706 days. Luis Scola could have used his presence when Brandan Knight extended for this jam in Scola’s grill.

Video: Solomon Hill Buzzer-Beating Putback Ruins Stephenson’s Homecoming

Lance Stephenson, Solomon Hill

It was supposed to be Lance Stephenson‘s game reminding Pacers fans what they used to have. Instead, it turned into an improbably Indiana victory at the buzzer by a guy who most fans outside of Indiana — and even some fans in Indiana — have no idea about. Still, Solomon Hill‘s game-winning putback counted and the Pacers survived the Hornets 88-86. Read More »

Video: Relatively Spry Paul George Plays One-On-One… Against His Dog

Paul George

And the remarkable recovery of Paul George from an early August compound fracture continues. After surprising by walking without crutches or a boot at media day three weeks ago and taking easy three-pointers at his team’s practice facility yesterday, the Indiana Pacers superstar took a huge step in his rehabilitation on Tuesday – by playing one-on-one against his dog.
