I still think the pacers finish 8-10 games over .500
But damn Vogel runs the same three plays over and over. LOL
Vogel, yes he needs to make better half time adjustments, but its the whole coaching staff. We have an excellent staff, they need to figure out different player combinations to make this team work. West needs to have about 10 minutes off every half. He needs to be kept fresh for the end of the season. Mahinmi has much better speed than hibbert and should be playing PF from time to time. We would have crushed a team like GS on the inside with Hibbert and Mahinmi down low. Too much rebounding, no weak side help. They cant come off of either.
Stephenson needs to get minutes at point unless Augustin decides to start picking up his play. The past few games hes made cuts to the basket, they are just too few and far between.
Heres an idea, make george play PF in a small line-up. That will force him to play around the basket. It might have been a good thing to try in a game like this to match up with GS on the defensive side.
The coaching staff needs to rethink how we sub. We dont have two solid teams right now, there is a huge drop off when teh subs come in the game. We have pieces that need to be fit together.
If Paul George had ball handling like Stephenson and Stephenson had a jumpshot like George, we would be unstoppable
