The No.1 seed Indiana Pacers are down 2-1 in the first round of the NBA Playoffs to the eight seed Atlanta. The Pacers’ president, the great Boston Celtic, Larry Bird, could only shake his head after the team disappointing performance on Thursday night. We feel your pain, Great White Hope. [@_MarcusD_]
The post Larry Bird Was Less Than Pleased With The Pacers Performance In Game 3 appeared first on Diehardsport.
BEST OF MAXIM
Remember that time the coach of a team that finished with the best regular season record in the Eastern Conference was coaching for his job just two games into the postseason? No? That’s probably because Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel is the only person it has ever happened to. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, […]
One picture spoke a thousand words. Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert had just fumbled a perfect interior pass from Evan Turner right at the rim, and the TV cameras caught team President Larry Bird holding his head in his hands.
What could he have been thinking at that moment in the second quarter of the Pacers' 98-85 Game 3 loss to the Atlanta Hawks?

I talk about the Fight that happened between Lance Stephenson and Evan Turner. I also talk about what is happening with the Pacers as a whole. Later in the show I discuss Rubin Carter, the movie The Hurricane, and those delicious Tortillas Nacho Cheese Pringles.
ESPN.com is reporting that Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel is coaching for his job in the playoffs:
Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that Vogel, despite a 56-win season that secured the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, is “coaching for his job” in the wake of a prolonged slide that has stretched into its third month.

Bird can't be pleased with his team's output in recent monthsAs you may have heard by now, the Indiana Pacers have turned into an absolute trainwreck the past few months. For most of the season, the Pacers were dominant. They were clicking on all cylinders with star power in Paul George, a budding force in Lance Stephenson, and a 7'2 rim protector in Roy Hibbert. However...
Frank Vogel got that dreaded vote of confidence that usually means that most coaches are on their way out. Thursday morning Pacers GM, Kevin Pritchard, sent out a tweet via Larry Birds sources to confirm that Frank Vogel’s job was safe as the teams basketball coach.
Larry Bird just told me his sources say Frank Vogel's job is safe. @Pacers

Poor, Larry Bird. This series against the Hawks is just so frustrating. Head in the hands reaction says it all.
Right or wrong, a lot of blame falls on the Head Coach when things go south for a team. The Indiana Pacers have been entertaining but the unsteady play, off the court issues, and team fights could have Frank Vogel coaching for his job in the playoffs:
Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that Vogel, despite a 56-win season that secured the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference...
Kevin Prtichard has tweeted that sources close to Larry Bird say Frank Vogel's job with the Indiana Pacers is safe.
Frankly, the Pacers have a lot of reasons to be looking at themselves and pointing fingers at each other. A season’s worth of work to get the top seed in the Eastern Conference has almost been completely thrown away. All the good will of the first half of the season has been spent. It is truly panic time in Indianapolis.
And it is not quite celebration time in Atlanta. But, boy...
Earlier this week, a report surfaced indicating that Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel could be coaching for his job even if his team defeats the Atlanta Hawks in the opening round of the playoffs. The dysfunction going on within the Pacers locker room has been well documented over the past month or so, which […]

Toronto 100, Brooklyn 95 - Those silly Canadians continue to get a little over excited about their basketball team (see above). Eking out a 5-point win to salvage a split at home before going on the road for the next two is probably not considered an "asskick" in most circles.Paul Pierce came oh so close to ripping the Raptor's hearts out yet again.

Officially the attendance at the Atlanta Hawks/Indiana Pacers game was 18,124. A couple minutes prior to tip-off this is what it looked like inside the arena. So either the Hawks are lying or everyone was taking their sweet time getting to the game. After all, the home team was not very good this season and the Pacers are playing even worse right now. Who wants to watch that?@MySportsLegion...
