Things you didn't expect to see Monday night: Tyler Hansbrough leading a fast break, dishing to Leandro Barbosa for a three-point play; Jeff Pendergraph starting at center and putting on his own personal slam-dunk contest; Kyrylo Fesenko tossing in a sweet jump-hook from the low block; Roy Hibbert in spectacles. With the third seed in the East locked up, coach Frank Vogel gave three of his starters the night off and turned the game over to the reserves. The two starters that did play did their share.

With their players repeatedly hitting the floor, diving out of bounds and in some cases simply outhustling the Bucks to loose balls, the Pacers won a contentious game over a slumping Milwaukee team that let its frustrations boil over in the fourth quarter as forward Larry Sanders was ejected as he made multple attempts to engage Pacers players. Indiana clinched homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. More

Not all big plays are baskets. Some make them possible. David West came up with four huge plays down the stretch Tuesday, powering the Pacers to its sixth consecutive victory. With the Pacers clinging to an 88-85 lead, West powered his way into the lane for a bucket. On the next possession, he chased down an errant pass and shoved it inside to Roy Hibbert, who turned into a three-point play. After a defensive stop, West faked his defender into the air, drove into the lane to collapse the defense and kicked out to a wide-open Paul George for a 3-pointer. More

Roy Hibbert had 12 points and 10 rebounds for his 18th double-double of the season, adding a pair of blocked shots. None of the starters played in the fourth quarter. Now that the playoffs are a certainty, the fans can think about where the Pacers will finish, who they will face in the first round, and when the games will be played. Indiana's players will remain more focused on how well they are performing heading into the postseason because that, ultimately will be the most important factor in extending their run. More

After honing their comeback skills in wiping out double-digit fourth-quarter deficits to beat the Rockets and Knicks, the Pacers were faced with quite the opposite situation Friday -- trying to protect a double-digit lead against one of the most talented teams in the NBA.

Almost exactly one year ago, consecutive victories over the Knicks in mid-March snapped the Pacers out of a funk and propelled them on a late-season run to secure a playoff berth. How they respond to back-to-back losses to New York over the weekend could be equally as important. With those defeats, the Pacers (25-18) have dropped six of eight to fall 2½ games behind third-place Orlando and 2½ games ahead of seventh-place Boston. They remain a virtual lock to reach the postseason but their pursuit of homecourt advantage in the first round has been jeopardized by their post-All-Star break slump.More
