I don't know... there were times where it looked like we might be back towards the end of the regular season and then we would look like crap again. They need to have a few good games in a row to be "back" in my opinion. I agree about Hibbert, he is the only one that still seems to be in a slump.

Am I the only one who wants to see the hawks take the pacers? One because I think it will be funny that they chased first seed all year only to loose first round to a team with a sub .500 record, and two because it will force them to get their **** straight next season.

It's sad that Vogel is forced into playing two PF's because he's been so poor on BOTH sides of the ball. This lineup wouldn't work against any other team in the playoffs. Kinda surprised it's working right now haha

Frank Vogel is over matched right now.

The Hawks are the worst 8th seed they could have probably met. Aside from the match up problems of Antic and the Pacers poor play, he has no advantage at all in terms of coaching. I wouldn't be surprised if Budenholzer out-coaches Vogel the entire series.

Budenholzer is a first year head coach, but he's a head coach with 4 championship rings and 15 years working as an assistant for Gregg Popovich and the Spurs.

I'm calling it now... Budenholzer is going to be a REAL problem for the Eastern Conference in the coming years.

Even with this loss being what it is, the Pacers should respond in the next game. They dont have a lot of time to think about this loss as they play game 4 in just over 24 hours. (2 pm ET start)

All they need is one game in ATL to get homecourt back. If adjustments arent made and they lose saturday then this series may be over.

I agree with Torocan that Vogel is being outcoached, but players play the games. The second half of the season is proof that other than Vogel not being able to keep his players in check, Its more mental and chemistry problems that are imploding the team rather than Vogels coaching.

Here are a few things they are doing badly; They lack intensity on defense. They are not rotating properly on defense, leaving the Hawks shooters wide open often. They are not running out to contest shots. They are playing too quickly on offense. They are taking shots too early in the shot clock and not letting the bigs get into position to rebound (playing at the hawks tempo) They are not forcing the ball into the paint enough. There is a lack of aggression on offense. They arent even trying to defend the pick and roll anymore. They are under utilizing West on offense, forcing him to make his own shot/force a shot at the last second as the shot clock sounds.

Thats not all coaching. Really its a wonder they are 1-2 in the series. Not many teams could play this badly and still be in games.

I wouldnt be mad if they started CJ and Mahinmi or Scola. The matchups favor it and George Hill has been awful.
