April 26, 2011 | Bulls 116, Pacers 89

Chicago (April 26, 2011) - The idea was sound. The problem rested with its execution. As the Pacers prepared for Game 5, the young coach outlined how he believed, if his team could win Tuesday night, it had an excellent chance to win the rest of the first-round series. His reasoning was that this would be the toughest game of the series and that, if that supreme challenge was met, things most certainly would turn their way. He was right about the challenge, but it proved too much for the young Pacers this time around. More →

April 23, 2011 | Pacers 89, Bulls 84

Indianapolis (April 23, 2011) -- Of course it wasn't easy. It's evident nothing will be as long as Derrick Rose is on the floor. The Pacers built a 16-point lead with five minutes remaining and then hung on for dear life in the face of another late Chicago run to pull out an 89-84 victory in Game 4 Saturday before 18,165 in Conseco Fieldhouse. Danny Granger led the Pacers with 24 points, nine rebounds and four assists, hitting four crucial free throws in the final 14.1 seconds. Roy Hibbert had his best game of the series with 16 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots. More →

Indianapolis (April 21, 2011) -- The Pacers held Derrick Rose to 4-of-18 shooting with the superstar point guard producing more turnovers (five) than assists (two). They limited Chicago to 32 percent shooting in the second half and neutralized what had been a prohibitive disadvantage on the boards. And yet for the third game in a row, they could not find the formula for holding a fourth-quarter lead and, as a result, their season's end is just one loss away. More →

April 18, 2011 | Bulls 96, Pacers 90

Chicago (April 18, 2011) -- This is getting madly, sadly redundant for the Indiana Pacers. Once again, the Pacers outplayed the Bulls for most of the game. Once again, the Pacers took their lead deep into the fourth quarter. And once again, they were undone by the sheer brilliance of Derrick Rose. Chicago's otherworldly point guard scored 14 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter as the Bulls took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven first-round NBA Playoff series Monday with a 96-90 victory over the determined but ultimately frustrated Pacers.

April 16, 2011 | Bulls 104, Pacers 99

Chicago -- Derrick Rose did it to the Pacers again. Rose scored seven of his game-high 39 points and assisted on two other baskets in a 16-1 run in the final 3½ minutes as Chicago rallied from a 10-point deficit to beat the Pacers 104-99 Saturday in Game 1 of a first-round NBA Playoffs series before 22,986 in the United Center. The Pacers did not trail for more than 47 minutes and led by as many as 12 until Rose worked his magic once more. In the last meeting of the regular season on March 18, Rose scored 42 points, including 19 of Chicago's final 20 in regulation to wipe out a 15-point Indiana lead to force overtime. More →

April 13, 2011 | Magic 92, Pacers 74

Officially, it counted. Realistically, it just didn't matter. With key players spending most -- or all -- of the game watching from the bench, the Pacers closed out the regular season with a 92-74 loss in Orlando's Amway Center on Wednesday night. Danny Granger and Jeff Foster did not play at all, while Darren Collison and Roy Hibbert did not play in the second half as the night belonged to the reserves, many of whom displayed the rust built up from weeks of inactivity.

April 10, 2011 | Knicks 110, Pacers 109

For the second time in as many meetings, Carmelo Anthony and Danny Granger exchanged shots in the final seconds with the game on the line. This time, Anthony got the better of the duel. Anthony's 19-foot jump shot over Danny Granger with 4.9 seconds left lifted New York to a hard-fought 110-109 victory over the Indiana Pacers before 13,542 Sunday night in Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers had a chance for a game-winner of their own but Anthony got a hand on Danny Granger's 19-footer and the ball wound up in the hands of Darren Collison, who missed an off-balance desperation toss at the buzzer.

April 8, 2011 | Pacers 114, Hawks 102

Though the finish line is in sight and their race is won, the Pacers appear set on sprinting through the tape. With Danny Granger setting the tone with an aggressive 28 points, and Darren Collison and Roy Hibbert both posting double-doubles, the Pacers put together their second consecutive strong offensive showing in a solid 114-102 victory over the Atlanta Hawks before 15,879 Friday in Conseco Fieldhouse. In snapping a nine-game losing streak against the Hawks, the Pacers never trailed and led by double figures most of the second half. Atlanta was no closer than eight in the fourth quarter. More →

April 6, 2011 | Pacers 136, Wizards 112

They took care of business, and then retired to the locker room to see if Orlando would finish the job. It required overtime, but the Magic won in Charlotte, 111-102. Coupled with the Pacers' 136-112 rout of the Washington Wizards Wednesday before 14,222 in Conseco Fieldhouse, Indiana clinched the franchise's first playoff berth since 2006 and set off a celebration in the locker room.

April 3, 2011 | Hornets 108, Pacers 96

Even with a loss, the Pacers moved closer to a playoff berth. With Charlotte's 97-91 loss to Washington Sunday, the Pacers' magic number for clinching their first playoff berth in five years shrank to three, but that was the only good news. Indiana fell behind by double figures in the first quarter and could not climb out of the hole in losing 108-96 to the Hornets before 13,898 in New Orleans Arena. More →

April 1, 2011 | Pacers 89, Bucks 88

They may not have much postseason experience but the Pacers are becoming accustomed to winning playoff-type games. Against a Milwaukee team desperately trying to keep its hopes alives, the Pacers saw a 14-point lead shrink to one in the fourth quarter but Roy Hibbert's dunk gave them an 89-86 lead that wasn't secure until Drew Gooden clanged a 3-pointer at the buzzer, allowing Indiana to escape with an 89-88 victory Friday before 11,177 in Conseco Fieldhouse.

March 30, 2011 | Pacers 111, Pistons 101

Mr. Hyde remained hidden. Dr. Jekyll was on full display. Getting balanced production across the roster, the Pacers built a 25-point lead and held on to beat Detroit 111-101 before 9,390 Wednesday at Conseco Fieldhouse. After following weekend losses to the Kings and Pistons with a win over the Celtics on Monday, center Roy Hibbert called the Pacers a Jekyll and Hyde team because of their tendency toward inconsistency, but there was no letdown against Detroit this time.

The better the competition, the better the Pacers. Roy Hibbert scored 26 points and Darren Collison scored eight of his 17 in the final 5½ minutes as the Pacers took control down the stretch to beat the Boston Celtics 107-100 Monday before a raucous crowd of 15,932 in Conseco Fieldhouse. In their last four home games, the Pacers have beaten three playoff teams -- the Celtics, Bulls and Knicks. More →

March 26, 2011 | Pistons 100, Pacers 88

Nothing has come easily this season, but the Pacers are making this playoff race unusually difficult. What was a relatively comfortable three-game lead just three days ago has quickly been reduced to a most uncomfortable one as the Pacers dropped their second game in a row to a team with a losing record, 100-88 Saturday to the Pistons before 19,216 in the Palace of Auburn Hills. As the Pacers dropped a back-to-back set, Charlotte (30-42) swept the Celtics and Knicks to pull just one game back. Indiana swept the season series from the Bobcats and thus holds the playoff tie-breaker. More →

If the Pacers didn't know it before, they should now: races are not over until the finish line is crossed.

Roy Hibbert got things started, Danny Granger carried them to the brink and Darren Collison closed the deal. Hibbert scored 14 of his 24 points in the first half, Granger 17 of his 20 in the second and Collison scored nine of the Pacers' final 11 points, including six huge free throws in the final 90 seconds, as the Pacers rallied from a 12-point deficit, took an 11-point lead late in the fourth quarter, and then had to hang on for dear life to beat the Nets 102-98 before 13,792 Monday in Prudential Center.

Apparently, Tony Allen is a pretty good offensive player, too. Allen had 19 points and a career-high 11 rebounds to help the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Indiana Pacers 99-78 on Saturday night. "I think he's done a nice job of finding his niche in the league with finding places to score," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said of Allen, known more for his defense. "If you double him, he cuts to the basket. He pushes the ball, he runs the lane, he attacks the basket, and he stays with what he does best." More →

When their spirit could've been broken, it was instead strengthened.

March 16, 2011 | Celtics 92, Pacers 80

Playing their fourth game in six nights and third in a row against a well-rested and highly motivated playoff team, the Pacers couldn't keep up with the Boston Celtics. With Paul Pierce scoring 20 and reserve Jeff Green adding 19, the Celtics built a comfortable lead in the second quarter and kept the Pacers at arm's length the rest of the night in rolling to a 92-80 victory before 18,264 in TD Garden Wednesday. After racking up 225 points and shooting 54 percent in consecutive victories over the Knicks, the Pacers shot just 38 percent and struggled to find quality shots all night long against Boston's elite defense.

History was made on a night the Pacers would just as soon forget.

Good news for the Pacers: they don't have any more extended road trips against Western Conference teams. They can't forget this final one quickly enough.

March 4, 2011 | Mavs 116, Pacers 108

His name is not commonly mentioned among the top MVP candidates but it's difficult to imagine a player with bigger impact on his team than Dirk Nowitzki. With Nowitzki out with a sprained knee in January, the Pacers beat the Mavs by 13. With the veteran forward not only in the lineup but playing a nearly perfect offensive game, hitting 10-of-12 shots on his way to 29 points, the Mavs overcame a valiant effort by the Pacers and won 116-108 on Friday before 20,385 in American Airlines Center.

The Thunder played very much like a top contender determined to snap a three-game losing streak in overpowering the Pacers 113-89 Wednesday in Oklahoma City. With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook scoring 21 apiece and James Harden adding 20 – all totals reached by the end of the third quarter – the home team opened a double-digit lead in the first quarter and cruised the rest of the way as the Pacers couldn't find the range.

Tyler Hansbrough did everything in his power to rally the Pacers, scoring 12 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter to cut a 21-point deficit down to seven, but the comeback stalled and Philadelphia pulled out a 110-100 victory before 9,466 Tuesday in Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pacers scored eight in a row to cut the deficit to 100-93 and Hansbrough came up with a steal on the ensuing defensive possession but A.J. Price missed a 3-pointer and Roy Hibbert threw the ball away after grabbing the offensive rebound and Indiana would get no closer.

They came back from 11 down in the fourth quarter and seven down in overtime but the Pacers couldn't close the deal as Channing Frye's buzzer-beating jumper over Brandon Rush lifted Phoenix to a 110-108 victory over Indiana Sunday in a thriller in front of 14,168 in Conseco Fieldhouse. Frye's shot spoiled a remarkable game from backup point guard A.J.

An offense that had been rolling right along hit the wall Friday night, managing its fewest points and shooting its lowest percentage (.348) since Frank Vogel took over as interim coach and the defense couldn't find a way to contain Utah's powerful frontcourt tandem of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, who combined for 54 points to lead the Jazz to a 95-84 victory Friday before 16,205 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

For the first time in Frank Vogel's tenure, the Pacers were losing the energy war. As a result, they trailed entering the fourth quarter, 90-83, another new experience for the interim head coach. But in a game where grit mattered most, Vogel turned to a couple of his grittiest players and Dahntay Jones and A.J. Price brought the Pacers to life.
