NBA Handicapping: Pacers claim to have practiced defense after historically bad effort

01.19.2016     07:34 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's hard to allow 247 points in regulation in back-to-back games, especially when neither opponent had Golden State printed on its jersey. That's the situation for Indiana as they limp into tonight's road game at Phoenix having allowed 118 to Washington and 129 last time out to Denver. This isn't the first time the Pacers stank up the joint defensively and called for a bounceback effort. Back in mid-December, they coughed up 131 in a loss to Warriors and then took down Miami 96-83 next time out. Of course the game following that, Indiana was blown out by Detroit, 118-96.


A day after describing his team’s defensive performance as “embarrassing,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel ran a “spirited” practice dedicated to that end of the floor.

“I thought we had better focus,” George said. “We were definitely tied into the details of playing defense today, which we haven’t done in a lot of practices.”
