The Pacers now sport a triumvirate of 7-footers after they signed Andrew Bynum. They already had backup Ian Mahinmi and starter, Roy Hibbert, but the two offer distinctive responses to Lance Stephenson‘s post-game tomfoolery. After Indy’s comfortable 118-98 Tuesday night win over the visiting Lakers, Stephenson had some videobomb fun at Mahinmi’s expense, pouring a bottle of water on his head as he attempted to conduct a court-side interview. It wasn’t the first time Stephenson has tried this videobomb tactic, but the results were better than his first attempt. Read More »

We’re technically past the halfway point in the NBA season, but really, let’s be serious: Things don’t start to heat up until after the All-Star break. Now we’re on the cusp of the trade deadline, and soon teams will be fighting for playoff spots and lottery ping-pong balls. Read More »

The Pacers, the best team in the East, rolled into Minnesota on Wednesday night, but it was the T’Wolves who started the game off with a bang. In the first quarter, Ronny Turiaf came out to set a screen for Ricky Rubio on the wing, and then rolled to the basket. The Pacers’ defense failed to cover Turiaf as he cut to the rim, and Rubio was able to thread the pocket bounce pass to Turiaf for a powerful slam over Roy Hibbert — a pretty good protector of the rim.

The All-Star break is looming and there is a clear picture of which players have been living up to their standards and which have not; which players have burst onto the NBA scene in surprise and which have flopped under the pressure.

At the end of each season, the NBA honors the best players by naming them to the All-NBA Teams. There are three teams: First Team, Second Team and Third Team. Each generally consists of five players: two guards, two forwards and one center, voted on by a group of sportswriters and broadcasters. Read More »

Because of his all-around game, Fox Sports Indiana’s Brooke Olzendam interviewed him on the court after the game.

The Cavs are in disarray, especially in the wake of the New York Daily News piece published this weekend, which detailed how new Cavalier Luol Deng is unhappy with the organization. But it’s their No. 1 pick in this past June’s draft, Anthony Bennett, that’s inspired the most mockery and enmity from fans. He’s been a huge disappointment so far in his rookie season, but Pacers big man Roy Hibbert came to the defense of Bennett after an unflattering photoshop started making the rounds on Twitter.

Phoenix came into Indianapolis Thursday night to face off against the team with the best home record in the NBA. The Pacers were 21-1 at home through the season’s first half, but the Suns still ran them off the court like they’ve done to so many other teams this season. One play in the first half personifies Phoenix’s attacking style. Gerald Green turned the corner and attacked the rim despite the presence of Roy Hibbert, perhaps the game’s best rim-protector.

Monster dunks. Nothing-but-net threes. Alley-oops. All are wonderful moments we’ve witnessed so far this season. There have been plenty of good moments: KD‘s recent scoring outburst, ‘Melo‘s record-breaking game, and Greg Oden‘s return… none of which you’ll see on this list. This is dedicated to the bad and the ugly, the plays that left you thinking WTF was that, what were they thinking? This season has been one of the most competitive and fun seasons to watch in recent memory, but it’s only right we have some fun at the halfway point. Read More »
