Running thoughts: R1G2 – Cavaliers 100, Pacers 97

Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers, Quicken Loans Arena

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 100-97 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena. It was game 2 of their best-of-seven first-round series. The series is tied, 1-1. We knew there would be changes from the Cavaliers, including their starting lineup. Coach Ty Lue opted to start veterans JR…

Running thoughts: R1G1 – Pacers 98, Cavaliers 80

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 98-80 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday afternoon at Quicken Loans Arena. It was game 1 of their best-of-seven first-round series. LeBron-led teams enter this series with 21 consecutive first-round victories. They’re 48-7 all-time. His last loss was all the way back in 2012, to the New…

Running thoughts: Pacers 126, Warriors 106

Pacers, Golden State Warriors

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 126-106 win over the Golden State Warriors Thursday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Running thoughts: Jazz 104, Pacers 84

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 104-84 loss to the Utah Jazz Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell received a loud applause during team introductions. Plenty of red in the building — Louisville fans making the two-hour drive north to see Mitchell, who played two seasons for the Cardinals. Pacers…

Running thoughts: Mavericks 109, Pacers 103

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 109-103 loss to the Dallas Mavericks Monday night at American Airlines Center. This is the first of four straight games on the road for the Pacers with stops all over — in Dallas, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Washington. It also begins a daunting stretch with 17 games played…

Running thoughts: Pacers 100, 76ers 92

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 100-92 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Both teams played last night. The Pacers lost in Charlotte, yielding a franchise-worst 49 points in the first quarter, and the 76ers won at home over the Miami Heat. This was the Pacers’ final regular-season home…

Running thoughts: Pacers 116, Suns 101

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 116-101 win over the Phoenix Suns Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Despite practicing for the first time in two weeks on Tuesday, the Pacers held Myles Turner out of the lineup. He is close to returning, working out on a basketball floor three times over the last…
