    Thanks for all the likes about my first time father post above! Hoosier nation is the best! TJD posted on his instagram story for a edit from “Tipton Edits” with a back to back photo pose of TJD and Brooks saying “what if”. Seems like TJD is still trying by chance

    To lighten the mood, I became a first time father Wednesday evening to a baby boy. Another IU fan has come into the world.

    Article regarding Wesley Mathews. It would not shock me to see the Pacers and Wesley work on a contract to return at seasons end assuming he continues to produce. He would start at the beginning of next season if Vic isn't quite ready. If Vic is ready by start of next season and they bring Wes back, Wes could have a very important role off of the bench with meaningful minutes as he can play the 2 and 3 spot. https://www.nba.com/pacers/news/matthews-won-over-familiarity-opportunity

    Crean Lands Anthony Edwards

    Nothing but respect for Crean a great pickup. This kid will be a stud in the NBA barring any career ending injuries. My wife and I sent a wedding invite to Coach and the team in 2016(married in Bloomington) and as expected they did not attend but Coach sent us a few goodies with a nice message from him and the team.

    If we could somehow keep the 3 seed I would be so ecstatic. March is going to be a tuff test for us. 14 total games, above .500 opponents are 76ers, Bucks, Thunder twice, Denver twice, Portland, Warriors, Celtics). These 9 games will determine if we keep the 3 seed or not. Remaining 5 below .500 are Magic twice, Clippers, Knicks, Bulls

    Pacers officially signed Edmund Sumner to a 2 year deal this morning(remainder of this season and a team option for the 2019-2020 season). Assuming we keep him for next season(IMO we will) at the end of the 2019-2020 season he's a RFA

    Lester Quinones

    My biggest take away from this is the last sentence by itself. I will leave it at that. You can see it on the court.

    Ohio St post game thread

    Archie will get at least 5 seasons before he would get axed(THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN). A coach can only do so much, his message is sent to the players but they are not responding. I think Archie is leaning on Romeo and Juwan ALOT which when they are your best two players on the team that makes sense, especially with all the injuries that have occurred. I think Davis needs a to dominate playing time when another big his size plays a lot(aka yesterday vs Ohio St Morgan stood no chance). Can anyone answer when we might see Race play? I understand when a guy isn't conditioned, however I think DeRon needs more minutes(assuming he's not in foul trouble) and Race needs to start playing already.

    I think after the trade deadline here is how the east will pan out for the remainder of the season: 1.) Bucks 2.) Raptors 3.) 76ers 4.) Celtics 5.) Pacers 6.) Nets 7.) Charlotte 8.) Miami. The Celtics are slumping right now with no team chemistry(see Marcus Morris comments from the weekend) but they have an all star in Kyrie and Tatum(huge potential) plus with our brutal March schedule I think we slide down to the 5 seed. Wesley Mathews will start at SG and provide solid defense and a threat from 3pt range. I think as long as Myles continues his strong play and we continue to play with how we have been playing since the Orlando Magic game a few weeks back, I could see us upsetting Boston in round 1 possibly.

    Lester Quinones

    By reading what has been posted about him, he is def what Archie is looking for. His toughness, competitive edge and 3 pt shooting would do wonders for this team from the 2 position.

    If I were coach I would address the plan to resolve the team chemistry issues with KB and let him know that it will come to an end by the close of the 2018-2019 college basketball season

    Wes Mathews has agreed to join the Pacers for the remainder of the season. My guess is after the all star game he will be starting at SG and allow Tyreke to move back to the bench role where he has been most comfortable. Wes can stroke the 3 ball, a career 38% shooter from 3. Averaged 13.1 ppg this season for the Mavericks Also, the Pacers are converting Edmund Sumner contract to become fully guaranteed so they now have all 15 roster spots filled.

    Indiana Pacers ARE THE FAVORITES to sign Wes Mathews after he is bought out from the Knicks. This would be a great pickup for Indy, especially if they sign him to more than just for the remainder of this season.

    Trades within the past hour! Toronto gets Marc Gasol, Grizzlies get Valanciunas, Delon Wright, CJ Miles and a 2024 second round pick Pacers get Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, also get a 2nd rd pick. A tax dump for the Rockets. Pacers will waive Ike Anigbogu Clippers get JaMychal Green and Garret Temple, Grizzlies get Avery Bradley Bucks get Nikola Mirotic, Pelicans get Stanley Johnson and Jason Smith

    Does One Game Change How You Feel?

    When Morgan went down in the Mich st game and we had a TRUE center healthy and play significant minutes, we were able to compete down low with other bigs. Morgan can be a beast down low but we are asking an awful lot from him to go toe to toe against true centers in college basketball when he should be playing the PF position and even then he is on the shorter end for that position. I think with Morgan getting hurt, it caused Archie to attack differently then running the offense through Romeo and Juwan then others. I hope the Mich state game wasn't a fluke, I would hate to see us revert back to before
