Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel joined the show to talk about their tough loss in Game 1 to the Heat.
Dan asked Vogel what he would have done differently last night.. “I probably, in hindsight, would either have Roy Hibbert in the game or stress spacing and or stress the importance of keeping the guys in front of us,” Vogel said.
Vogel did acknowledge that they did have matchup concerns with Hibbert on the court. “Chris Bosh is every bit as capable of beating you in 2.2 seconds,” Vogel said.
Vogel did explain why he thought his strategy could have worked. “All you have to do,” Vogel said. “whoever has the ball, [make him] turn him into a second move, and you win the game.”
Dan asked what he thought of Paul George hitting that big three at the end of regulation. “Just a young star rising to the challenge,” Vogel said.
Vogel said the key to advancing was limiting turnovers and also solving the Heat’s smaller lineup.
