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: Andrew Wiggins Shows Off All-Around Ability In Preseason Opener

Andrew Wiggins

It’s been an up-and-down summer for Andrew Wiggins. He was selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, then found out he would be playing with LeBron James. Except, he got dealt to the Timberwolves in August as part of a package — including Anthony Bennett — for the Cavs to acquire Kevin Love. If his first preseason game is any indication, we think ‘Wolves fans will *love* Wiggins just as much as they ever did their former power forward. Read More »

Paul George

We were pleasantly surprised when injured Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George showed up to media day earlier this week without crutches or even a sizable limp in his gait. Despite such incredible progress since his horrific August injury, though, we didn’t even entertain the idea that George might play in the 2014-2015 season. Apparently, that was a mistake.

Paul George Is Walking Without Crutches Or A Limp At Indiana Pacers Media Day

Paul George

It was less than two months ago that Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George suffered a horrific leg injury on national television while playing in the USA Basketball Showcase. It speaks volumes of the injury’s gruesome nature that the immediate reaction of many wasn’t wondering whether or not George would play basketball again, but if he’d be able to walk at all. Those knee-jerk responses proved wrong, thankfully, and George will make a full recovery in time to play for the Pacers in 2015-2016. Today, though, he deserves congratulations for managing to walk at Indiana’s media day without help or even a limp. Read More »
