What They’re Saying – March 28

Here’s a look at what the people of the internet are saying about the Pacers-Heat rivalry and other Pacers’ news.

Fox Sports: ”The Indiana Pacers’ one-point triumph over the visiting Miami Heat on Wednesday reminded us of how much fun the Eastern Conference finals should be. We also learned that any Heat notion of using Greg Oden to slow down Pacers center Roy Hibbert probably has been tabled.” Read More

Indy Star: ”Don’t believe people when they say there are no must-wins in the regular season. This was a must-win for the Pacers, who were looking at having their Eastern Conference lead trimmed to one game, with Miami enjoying a much softer remaining schedule than the Pacers.” Read More

ESPN Daily Dime: “Simply, this rivalry is tight, and if they meet again for a third consecutive season in the playoffs, there are going to be games that come down to the narrowest of margins, such as where a potential Game 7 is located. The Pacers took a huge step in that direction with the victory.” Read More

 

 

SI Point Forward: “The physical, high-intensity nature of Indiana’s 84-83 victory over Miami on Wednesday was about as good as March basketball gets in the NBA, but the Heat weren’t pleased with how the referees managed the action.” Read More

CBS Sports: ”Right on cue after an 84-83 loss to the East-leading Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, Lebron James once again took issue with how hard fouls on him — and hard contact dealt out by him — were officiated. That must mean that it’s March, and the playoffs are right around the corner.” Read More

SI Point Forward: “The buildup to the anticipated rematch in the 2014 playoffs has only fanned the flames. Backhanded compliments and fronthanded insults have been exchanged alike and three chippy games have been contested on the hardwood, with Indy’s win Wednesday giving the Pacers a 2-1 lead in the season series (the finale is April 11).” Read More

   

 

Indy Cornrows: ”While the offensive execution against the Heat left some concerns, the toughness and ability to close in such an intense game was a relief. Now the Pacers try to take that level of effort on the road when they face the Wizards in Washington on Friday night.” Read More

ESPN.com: “Scoop Jackson has followed Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson’s career closely. He sat down with Stephenson the day before the 2010 NBA Draft camp and again before the biggest game of the 2013-14 regular season.” Read More

Indy Star: ”Lance Stephenson has reminded people in the past that even though he plays with an emotional edge, he had never been kicked out of a game on any level. Until Wednesday night.” Read More

ABC News: “Paul George is joining a new All-Star team. Gatorade will introduce the Pacers’ budding star as its newest NBA spokesman in a lineup that already features prominent athletes such as Heat guard Dwyane Wade, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, tennis star Serena Williams and Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.” Read More

 

 

Bleacher Report: ”None of this would matter quite so much for the Pacers if their defense was still gumming up opposing offenses like it was earlier on. Since March 4, Indy has surrendered 101.2 points per 100 possessions. That mark still puts the Pacers comfortably within the top 10, but it pales in comparison to the 94.4 points per 100 possessions they’d allowed through the first four-plus months of the 2013-14 season.” Read More

Bleacher Report: ”The Pacers are wise to take it slow with Bynum. It’s especially meaningless to have him return for a late-regular-season game given the risk of him re-injuring himself. However, Indianapolis very well may need him if or when its Eastern Conference Finals series with the Miami Heat rolls around.” Read More
