Pacers get revenge, spank Bulls 104-92

The Indiana Pacers had won 6 of 7 games entering tonight’s game against the Bulls at home, the team that handed them their only L during that stretch.

Big Shout, Indiana Pacers, For Taking Care Of Business

Indiana opened the season dragging on the floor, averaging 92.7 points per game in three losses to Toronto, Memphis and Utah.

Indiana Pacers headed in right direction after three-game win streak

The Indiana Pacers opened the 2015-16 season with a rough 0-3 start.

New look Indiana Pacers are a work in progress

On Twitter @CrossoverNBA They say Rome wasn’t built in a day. It was built, however. It’s important to remember that sports isn’t dating, so first impressions don’t mean everything … and often, they mean jack squat. The Indiana Pacers hope so, anyway. Indiana starts off 0-1 after a woebegone loss to the Toronto Raptors, entering a season as maybe the league’s hardest...

Why everyone (including Paul George) should be patient with Pacers' move to small-ball

It isn't at all surprising that the Indiana Pacers are being criticized for undergoing a complete change in philosophy. Shunning the "smash mouth" style of basketball that produced three lengthy playoff appearances, including back-to-back trips to the Eastern Conference Finals, and considerable individual accolades seems like a questionable decision on the surface. Why not stick...
