A single practice on a Tuesday doesn’t really seem that significant in the long terms of a NBA season, but it’s the little things in one given day that build up to a playoff run.

ESPN the Magazine sent me to meet up with fellow photographer, Steve Boyle, to tackle one practice at the Indiana Pacers team facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, for their recent photo issue. ┬áThe idea was to just go crazy covering what a playoff team does in a single day at practice after a loss to the Miami Heat. ┬áThe day wasn’t but a few hours, but we were treated with amazing access once again to witness everything from massages to FIFA soccer xBox battles to new sponsor sneaker talk to gym and training sessions.

What the general public sees is the final product on TV when teams play, and one the best thing about working for The Mag is they allow me to see the stuff no one else sees leading up to tip-off, which is always rad to be a part of.
