Pacers losing ground on Heat

With a little over two weeks remaining in the NBA's regular season, the Indiana Pacers just a few short days ago had a 3 game lead on the Miami Heat in the race for the Eastern Conference's top spot.  The Pacers only goal this season was to secure the number 1 position so that they could host a game 7 if necessary in Indiana versus the Heat or any other potential playoff opponent.  With two lackluster performances in a row, the Pacers lead over the Heat has dropped to one game and tonight's match-up against the Spurs will be critical for the Pacers.  After last evening's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Pacers coach Frank Vogel spoke of the franchise not sharing the ball as they should and being frustrated. 

“I don’t know. Obviously we would’ve fixed it by now if it was something simpler. I thought we took a step, in terms of sharing the ball.....We’re playing against ourselves right now. It’s a level of play that we’re trying to reach that we’re not close to where we need to be....We’re all frustrated. … We just got to win the next game. That’s our only mindset.” – Frank Vogel
