Miami Heat needs to move Tyler Herro back to the bench


The Miami Heat finally got their third win of the season after the heroics of Max Strus and Jimmy Butler in the fourth quarter of their win over the defending champion Golden State Warriors 116-109 . Of the teams that have had a rough start this season, the Heat are one of the most notable. During their game against the Warriors, Tyler Herro only played nine minutes after getting hit in the eye by Moses Moody. Still, the team was able to survive the tough matchup without the shooting guard. Miami started the 2022-23 NBA season with a slight difference in their starting five and Herro and Caleb Martin received a promotion to the starting lineup for this year’s campaign. With this strategy, they’ve gone smaller compared to the previous seasons after PJ Tucker’s departure over the summer became a massive hit to their frontcourt depth. Source

Pacers selling vision instead of wins as start of season approaches


he Pacers front office leaders, Kevin Pritchard (Pres) and Chad Buchanan (GM), made the media rounds last week ahead to the team starting training camp on Monday. Both seemed energized by the big task in front of them, rebuilding the Pacers with quality young talent. They also hit a theme we will likely continue to hear during this process, selling the long-term vision of the team as opposed to short-term success...better known as wins. "I don’t think focusing on wins and losses is appropriate with a young team," Buchanan explained during an appearance on Kevin & Query from the Pacers Foundation golf outing last week. The team will have a different scorecard to measure success this season and Buchanan wants to see that improvement month-by-month as the young talent gets the opportunity to show what they can do. B Both Pritchard and Buchanan mentioned Memphis as a blueprint for what they have in mind. Cleveland was also referenced by Buchanan as two teams that leaned on good young talent and had a sudden jump two years in. Cleveland my be even a better example since they also made a bold move to acquire Donovan Mitchell to fortify their young core for what looks like a group ready for several years of success

April Fool’s Joke At Boston Celtics Shootaround Draws Classic Response From Ime Udoka


First-year coach Ime Udoka and Boston Celtics reserve forward Grant Williams had a bit of an argument during a game this week. That prompted the two to stage a fight at a shootaround Friday as an April Fool’s joke. At a press conference before Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Udoka gave a little rundown of how it all went down. He said the fight fooled just about everyone, and then he had a classic response when asked why nobody jumped in to break up the so-called fight.

The Odds That The Indiana Pacers Move Up In The 2022 NBA Draft Lottery


The Indiana Pacers have not selected a player with a single-digit pick in the NBA Draft since taking forward George McCloud seventh overall in 1989. In the three-plus decades since, the Pacers have found a ton of regular season success, reaching the postseason 25 times and never drafting higher than tenth.

The Ringer has found "The Pacers’ Path to NBA Relevance"

What is Monta's fate?


"INDIANA PACERS – Full Record (20-18) / Since Last Time (10-7) Resolution: Bring Monta Ellis off the bench or trade him. The wheels may already be in motion on this one, with Ellis playing off the bench since returning from injury. However, keeping things that way and making sure everyone is happy is a completely different beast (just ask Knight & the Suns). Ellis’ minutes have taken a dip since the move to the bench and the ego hit to have someone like Glenn Robinson III starting over you would not be easy for anyone. If the Pacers can make this work, then it will be great for their 16/17 playoff aspirations. If they can’t, they need to trade Ellis before he kills his own value."
