  • Pacers' Ben Sheppard: Drains three triples Wednesday

    Sheppard chipped in 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and one assist over 20 minutes during Wednesday's 130-121 loss to New York in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

    Sheppard continues to play meaningful minutes for the Pacers, connecting on three triples en route to 11 points. While the Pacers ended with six players logging double-digit scoring, it was still not enough to get over the hump in front of a vocal New York crowd. Sheppard should continue to serve as a three-point threat off the bench.

    Sheppard is not in the starting lineup to face the Bulls on Wednesday.

  • Pacers' Ben Sheppard: Late addition to injury report

    Sheppard is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Pelicans due to an illness.

    Sheppard's late addition to the injury report is a bad sign of his availability for Friday's contest. If the rookie guard is ruled out, Bennedict Mathurin could receive increased playing time, though Aaron Nesmith's return (ankle) should absorb most of Sheppard's missing minutes.

    Sheppard and fellow rookie first-round pick Jarace Walker both joined the G League club on Tuesday and started in the Mad Ants' 131-97 win over the Windy City Bulls.

  • Pacers' Ben Sheppard: Plenty of volume in loss

    Sheppard recorded 15 points (6-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes during Sunday's 127-122 preseason overtime loss to the Grizzlies.

    Although Sheppard came off the bench during Sunday's matchup, he saw plenty of volume from the floor and led the Pacers in field-goal attempts. Indiana selected Sheppard with the 26th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, and although Sunday's performance was encouraging, he could have some trouble carving out meaningful minutes for the Pacers once the regular season begins.
