Copeland’s just chillin’

If you want to talk with Chris Copeland after a game, you better catch him quickly. Otherwise, you're in for a long wait. Copeland's routine after home games is unique among the Pacers. He'll undress after coach Frank Vogel has met with the players, taking a few minutes to chat with teammates or any reporters who wander by his locker, and then head for the cold tub in the training area. He'll sit there, num ...

Lance’s Departure Creates Opening

On the surface of it, there's nothing good about the news of Lance Stephenson signing a three-year contract with Charlotte. Losing your starting shooting guard, a promising soon-to-be 24-year-old who was a legitimate All-Star candidate last season, doesn't bode well for a team regarded as a title contender. So now we wait to see what lies beneath the surface. Until that plays out, we can only sit back in a ...

Butler’s There to Serve

Rasual Butler's box score from the Pacers' victory over Miami on Wednesday was nothing to write about. He played 4 minutes, 47 seconds in the second quarter, missed a three-pointer and committed a turnover. His game performance, however, was much better than that. He spent much of it standing on the sideline, communicating with the assistant coaches and with his teammates, a middle man between the two units ...

Pacers Quiet The Storms

Sure, the Pacers appear to be getting it back together again, but just think how well they'd be playing if they didn't have all those chemistry issues, hadn't signed Andrew Bynum, and hadn't traded Danny Granger! Sorry, just had to make one last joke about all the rumors and theories swirling around them for the past couple of months, now that they've been smothered by denials, stats, fishing trips and Frid ...

Pacers get their wish, for what it’s worth

The Pacers have played 202 playoff games in the NBA, but have never played a Game 7 on their home court. They will on Saturday, when they close out their first-round series with Atlanta, one way or another. They declared earning home court advantage their mission from the first day of training camp, but they had the Eastern Conference finals in mind, not a first-round matchup with Atlanta. Still, they have ...

Wussies? Pacers not paying attention to Barkley

Charles Barkley believes the Pacers are “wussies,” his sanitized word for a soft team. The Pacers claim not to either know or care what he thinks. Barkley made his comment on TNT's nationally televised studio show Sunday afternoon in reference to the Pacers' 101-93 loss to Atlanta the previous day in the opening game of their first-round playoff series. The top-seeded Pacers, who had struggled through the e ...

Hibbert smiles through scoreless game

Statistically, a week hadn't made all that much difference for Roy Hibbert. He had finished with no points and no rebounds in nine minutes against Atlanta a week earlier, and had no points and six rebounds in 27 minutes against Oklahoma City on Sunday. Emotionally, the gulf couldn't have been wider. Hibbert was upbeat throughout the Pacers' 102-97 win over Oklahoma City at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and appro ...

Pacers Will Need More from Hibbert, Hill to Win Title

Just two regular season games left, and where are the Pacers? As confusing as they've ever been. Perhaps as confused, too. Friday's 98-86 loss to Miami was worse than that score indicates, and not just because they trailed by as many as 23 points in the third quarter. They weren't nearly competitive enough for most of the second half. They squandered the night off Frank Vogel had given the starters on Wedne ...
