Pacers get crushed by Suns at home as injuries reappear

Injuries or not, the outcome of this one was never really in doubt. The Indiana Pacers just don’t match up well against the Phoenix Suns. Without Paul George, David West, George Hill, CJ Watson and CJ Miles, they don’t really stand a chance. And with Roy Hibbert and Rodney Stuckey injurying themselves during the game, you end up with the 106-83 blowout we had tonight.
No big deal. The Pacers fall to 5-8. Hibbert’s ankle shouldn’t rule him out of any future games, and neither should Stuckey’s wrist injury. But make no mistake, this was an ugly game for the Pacers and it’s best if everyone just forgets about it and move on.
The next game is in Dallas on Monday, and judging from the way the Mavs have been rolling lately it could be even worse than tonight.
Hang in there, Pacers fans. Your patience will be rewarded.

Suns’ Eric Bledsoe Believes Kentucky Would Beat 76ers in 7-Game Series

Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe better bring his A-game the next time he faces the Philadelphia 76ers, or he’ll never hear the end of it.

The 76ers are currently sitting at 0-10, losing by nearly 17 points per game on average. Their struggles have stirred up a popular debate: Could the best college team beat the worst professional team?

The NCAA’s Kentucky Wildcats are loaded with talent and looking good early on this season, but Kentucky coach John Calipari was quick to dismiss the notion that his team could beat an NBA team:

However, Bledsoe—a former Wildcat—disagrees with his college coach.

Bledsoe appeared on SiriusXM’s The Starting Lineup with Brian Geltzeiler and Malik Rose. That’s when he gave his thoughts on if the Wildcats could beat the 76ers in a seven-game series:

You heard that right. Bledsoe would “definitely” take Kentucky, with Philadelphia “maybe” winning a game. That’s a pretty surprising response even for a former Wildcat.

Who would win a seven-game series, the 76ers or the Wildcats?

Recap: Celtics drop barnburner to Suns with another late game collapse

Different Opponent. Same Result.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one in the last four weeks. The Celtics played a wildly entertaining, back-and-forth game against a very good basketball team. They looked poised to come away with a big, early season victory… but they didn’t.
The Cs twice rallied from double digit deficits and held a 114-112 lead with under a minute to go after the dunk of the year from Jeff Green and ensuing free throw, but the Suns scored the last six points of the contest to come away with the road win, sending the Celts to a third straight loss.
The Green:
Another aggressive, complete, offensive performance from Jeff Green (28 points, 10-17 from the field, 8-9 from the line and a couple of MONSTER slams)
Tyler Zeller (19 points, 7 boards) had his best game of the season, dueling with back-up center counterpart Alex Len off the bench for the Suns. Len finished with 19 and 7 including two crucial free throws late to stretch the Suns lead to four with 20 seconds to pl…
