Augustin Back in as Backup PG
Ben Hansbrough is out and D.J. Augustin is back in as George Hill's backup at point guard for the Pacers.
The move isn't surprising. Vogel said Augustin's benching would be a short-term move when he announced it two weeks ago.
Hansbrough has the same nonstop motor as his older brother, Tyler, but opposing teams pressured him the full court, disrupting the Pacers' offense.
Augustin, who is playing with more confidence, played in the second half over the ineffective Hansbrough against the Hornets.
"I think when a guy works as hard as he does and handles adversity the way he did in terms of being a good teammate, increasing his work ethic, trying to get his game right, you look for the opportunity to reward him and I think the time is right," Vogel said of Augustin.
Thats too bad, i was really pulling for Ben, i like his defensive intensity.
