While watching his teammates practice today, Pacers' forward Danny Granger agreed with the Soft label that team President Larry Bird dropped after the Pacers' suffered a devastating defeat via the Miami Heat last evening.  Granger left the game in the 3rd quarter with a sprained ankle and his playing status for tomorrow night is unknown, Granger is currently listed as day to day.

"I agree with his assessment. We did play soft. We got smacked around. We got beat up. We got bullied,'' Granger said. "And we didn't really respond well. You give up 61.4% to anybody is really uncalled for. I think they set all kinds of records for points scored and I think it was our worst playoff loss ever, so that's really unacceptable.....I've known Larry since I've been in Indiana for seven years. He's not one to hold his tongue and 99 percent of the time what he's saying is right. I think he just called out what everyone else saw. We played a soft game. We didn't come with the playoff intensity that we needed to win and he called us out.''
