“Exhale, calm down, have fun,” (Pacers coach Frank) Vogel said. “We weren’t having fun in the first half. We were playing with pressure, the clouds were out. We just had to calm down.”
And with that simple message, the Pacers went from gloomy to dominant in the third quarter. They are headed home exuding confidence after pulling off the 78-75 victory.
“Coach Frank, he believes,” Pacers guard Paul George said. “He’s like the (Tim) Tebow of coaches. He puts us in great situations. He does a good job of preparing us.”
“When they went on their run, his thing was don’t panic, but none of us looked like we were having fun out there,” Pacers guard George Hill said. “He challenged us to have fun.”
