Vogel to Shake Up Pacers’ Second Unit?
A shakeup in the Indiana Pacers’ struggling second unit could be coming based on an internal call-out from coach Frank Vogel.
“They’ve just flat-out been challenged to get the job done better,” Vogel said prior to Sunday night’s game at Oklahoma City. “More toughness, more intensity, more determination on the defensive end.”
Vogel said he’s considering giving third guard Ben Hansbrough and seldom-used forward Jeff Pendergraph playing time at the expense of those struggling.
“It’s something we weigh every day,” he said. “It’s something we challenge our (second-unit) guys they have start picking it up.”
