Pacers FanJam 2015

The Indiana Pacers hosted their annual FanJam Sunday afternoon, 11 days before the team opens the regular season across the border in Toronto against the Raptors (Oct. 28). It set up nicely because it was a nice pre-game to the Colts and Patriots battling on Sunday Night Football.

The crowd was smaller than in year’s past, but still an engaged, rowdy bunch.

Scrimmage (two six-minute halves)

Blue team: George Hill, Monta Ellis, C.J. Miles, Paul George, Ian Mahinmi, Solomon Hill, Jordan Hill, Rakeem Christmas, C.J. Fair.

White team: Chase Budinger, Shayne Whittington, Lavoy Allen, Joe Young, Glenn Robinson III, Toney Douglas, Myles Turner, Kadeem Jack.

  • C.J. Miles dunked the ball to get things started.
  • Paul George received big cheers frequently.
  • Myles Turner missed a 3-pointer bad.
  • Lavoy Allen, after cherry-picking, with a dunk to end the first half. The White team led, 19-15.
  • I can confirm that Kadeem Jack can dunk. Easily.
  • The White team got the win, 45-34.

After the scrimmage, Pacers Director of Media Relations David Benner was presented a cake for his upcoming 60th birthday.
