Pondering the Pacers: Indy had their chance

There I am, sitting in my living room as Wesley Matthews is about to inbound the ball for a potential game-tying shot.

Pondering the Pacers: Smart’s Injury Works in Indy’s Favor

Pondering the Pacers: Bring on the Celtics

It’s Game 7 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals. Jayson Tatum just baptized LeBron James, the roof of the TD Garden is about to blow, and Brad Stevens is flexing a Jimmy Neutron-esque IQ.

If you’re a fan of the Blue and Gold, Wednesday’s loss to the Bucks was a tough one to take. It was one of those games that was back-and-forth throughout, but it came down to the Pacers needing a big play to get over the hump. No problem: just pop it out to Vic…..oh, wait. The Milwaukee game ...
