Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 116-101 win over the Phoenix Suns Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Running thoughts: Pistons 104, Pacers 98

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 104-98 loss to the Detroit Pistons Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Pistons (16-13) guard and high-level defender Avery Bradley missed his first game of the season. He had started in all 28 games before tonight. Entirely different atmosphere from the last game.
