NBA Playoff Handicapping: Indiana Pacers try to fix offense on the fly

Atlanta at Indiana -7.5 O/U 187

Never a shortage of issues with the Indiana Pacers these days. Here we have the simple act of sharing – something the team addressed and obviously didn’t solve three weeks ago.


"I think the offensive change is simple: Share the ball more," Vogel said. "We gotta be effective and go inside more, and we gotta be effective when we go inside."

"We need to pound the ball a little more, (we've been) hesitant on our passes," Hill said. "We feed off our two bigs. Roy and David (West) are some of the best bigs in the league. The

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Recapping NBA Playoff Game 1's

04.21.2014     08:00 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There were eight opening round NBA Playoff Series that started this past weekend.  The lower seeded road teams – all underdogs in Game 1 – went 6-2 ATS, including five outright upset winners.  There were four games that flew Over the total, three that stayed Under and one (Miami-Charlotte) that finished right in between the opening and closing total.

This is just the start of a two month NBA Playoff marathon, and those Game 1’s may not be indicative of how these opening round series are likely to play out.  Here are some key note and quotes for each series following those Game 1’s.

Miami looked sluggish and lethargic for extended stretches of their opener against Charlotte, but took over the game with an 18-4 run in the fourth quarter when LeBron James was sitting on the bench.  Head coach Erik Spoelstra:  “We were flat to start. I think our guys were just anxious."  LeBron: “That group that was in once I took that break at the 10-minute mark in the fourth quarter, they just bumped the lead. Obviously, to have three Hall of Famers in the game when I'm out of the game, CB, D-Wade and Ray Read more

NBA Betting News: Miami Heat focused on health rather than top seed

04.11.2014     07:15 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
While the Indiana Pacers are all-in for tonight's critical game at Miami according to LeBron James, the team's focus remains on staying healthy. James however later noted that tonight's contest will have a Game 7-like feel. Make up your mind, Bron.


"It's not about controlling our destiny with the No. 1 seed," James insists. "We want to get healthy. That's all we care about, man, going into the postseason healthy. We've got more problems as far as health issues than the No. 1 seed. And if it happens, it happens. We're going to be excited to get the postseason started. But that's the least of our worries right now."

"It doesn't matter how a team is struggling; once they play us we

NBA Handicapping: Indiana Pacers will play starters vs. Miami Heat

04.11.2014     06:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rested and ready the Indiana Pacers head to Miami looking to secure the top seed in the Eastern Conference. According to reports, Indiana will play all of its starters. The Pacers have a half game lead over the Heat with three games remaining. Miami has four games left. No line as of this morning as oddsmakers wait to confirm who will play for both sides.


"There was a lot of energy at practice, they definitely had their legs," Vogel said. "The decision [to rest the starters] was every bit as much about the bench guys as the starters. Hopefully that took care of the bench, and the fresher legs will help the starters."

NBA Handicapping: Indiana Pacers somehow back in lead of Eastern Conference

04.10.2014     08:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Just when looked like Indiana was waving the white flag (i.e. sitting starters) in its quest for the Eastern Conference's top seed, they went ahead and beat Milwaukee 104-102 and regained the East lead by a half game over the Miami Heat who have lost three of four. The two teams meet in South Beach on Friday.

We have to point out that while the results (-1 closing number) say the Pacers covered vs. the Bucks, keep in mind that game opened -3.5, went to -5, dropped to -2 and only an hour before game time did the line drop to -1.5/-1. In their last 23 games, the Pacers really have only one legitimate pointspread cover (91-79 as 6.5-point favorites vs. Chicago). The other two were last night’s miraculous victory and an OT win as 5-point chalk vs. Detroit.


“We accomplished the purpose,” said George, who spent the game in warm-ups after getting in some conditioning and shooting. “We felt very comfortable with the group we had, that they were going to go out there and get us a win. It wasn’t like we were sacrificing the game.

Indiana -2 at Milwaukee O/U 183

Always an adventure betting late regular season NBA. The Indiana Pacers opened -3.5 for tonight's game at Milwaukee. Earlier today they were bet up to -5. Then news broke that head coach Frank Vogel was going to sit his starters. They'll instead go with Donald Sloan, Evan Turner, Rasual Butler, Ian Mahinmi, and Luis Scola. That drove the line from -5 to -2.

NBA Handicapping: Does Indiana's late season slump lessen it postseason chances?

04.08.2014     12:06 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article on the Indiana Pacers and whether or not "peaking" impacts a team's ability to make a postseason run.


The Pacers are minus-5.6 in their last 20 games in point differential, which has consistently proven to be a good predictor of postseason success. Only one team in the past ten years has even made the playoffs with a point differential of minus-5 or worse in their final 20 games: the 2011 Atlanta Hawks who finished 7-13 in their last 20 with a minus-5.9 point differential.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: The Indiana Pacers' historic ATS slide

04.07.2014     08:02 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Indiana Pacers have been a remarkable pointspread story this year, worthy of a Wiseguy Report to examine in detail what has happened and why.  To be thorough, this story starts last year when the Pacers flexed their collective muscles, developing into a title contender for the first time in a decade.  

Indiana was good, not great, in the 2012-13 regular season.  They won 49 games, tied for the third best record in the (much) weaker of the two conferences.  Here’s an excerpt of what I wrote about the Pacers heading into the playoffs last year:

“A month ago, I would have listed the Pacers as Miami’s toughest Eastern Conference potential test.  Indiana’s defensive numbers rank among the best in the NBA, and low post behemoth Roy Hibbert is a very tough matchup for the Heat in the paint.  Indiana beat Miami twice during the regular season, and the Pacers were the last team to give the Heat real trouble in the playoffs last year, taking a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference semi’s before the Heat closed out the series with three straight wins.

But the Pacers have not Read more

NBA Handicapping: All of sudden, Pacers not concerned about top seed

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For today's What a Crock of You-Know-What news we have the Indiana Pacers claiming the top seed in the Eastern Conference is no longer a top priority. This after last night's slump-busting, non-covering win over Detroit. The Miami Heat are ahead of the Pacers via win percentage and have eight games remaining whereas Indiana has only six. The two teams meet in Miami next Friday.


“We can’t focus on it,” West said of the top spot. “We worked ourselves [to the point where] we’ve gotten out of sorts trying to focus on that and we haven’t played good enough basketball over the last month or so to claim it. So now it’s up for grabs and we’re behind the eight-ball in terms of that. We just have to play ball, man. Either way we’re going to have to win some tough playoff series. We’ll have to win some games on the road whether it’s early in the series or late. That’s just what it is.”
