Running thoughts: Pacers 106, Cavaliers 102

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 106-102 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Derrick Rose spoke at shootaround and admitted that he has a bone spur in his left ankle which may require surgery. Tristian Thompson is still experiencing soreness and did not play. Strong start for the…

Running thoughts: Pacers 115, Knicks 97

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 115-97 win over the New York Knicks Monday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Knicks without starters Kristaps Porzingis (sprained right ankle/illness) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (stress injury, lower left leg). Neither made the flight to Indy after losing at home last night to Orlando. Remember, Porzingis scored…

Running thoughts: Pacers 121, Magic 109

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 121-109 win over the Orlando Magic Monday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Victor Oladipo is back – and in the starting lineup – after being sidelined for one game due to a bruised right knee. The injury occurred in their 107-104 win over Toronto Friday night. He…

Running thoughts: Pacers 105, Magic 97

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 105-97 win over the Orlando Magic Monday night at the Amway Center I expect Victor Oladipo to have himself a nice game. He didn’t feel appreciate in Orlando, where he spent his first three seasons, or in Oklahoma City last year. He didn’t feel like they were…

Running thoughts: Pacers 120, Heat 95

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 120-95 win over the Miami Heat Sunday at AmericanAirlines Arena. The home team has been dominant in this series. The Pacers have won the last 10 in Indy, and lost six straight in Miami. Ike Anigbogu is not with the team; he was assigned to the Mad…

Running thoughts: Pacers 116, Grizzlies 113

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 116-113 win over the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night at FedEx Forum. No Mike Conley for the Grizzlies. The Lawrence North High School product is dealing with a left Achilles injury, something that has bothered him for a while, and it caused him to miss his second game this…

Running thoughts: Rockets 118, Pacers 95

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 118-95 loss to the Houston Rockets Sunday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Curtains above the balcony levels are pulled back. That’s always a cool look. Eric Gordon is looking trim. He’s become a reliable contributor now that he’s healthy. And with Chris Paul missing time, he has…

Running thoughts: Pelicans 117, Pacers 112

Here are my running thoughts from the Pacers’ 117-112 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Solomon Hill, the Pacers’ 2013 first-round pick, remains out after offseason hamstring surgery (ouch, I know!) He did not make the trip back to Indy. Pacers observed a moment of silence before the game for the…
