MIAMI -- Indiana Pacers coach Jim O'Brien is going to run out of options with his starting lineup with all the tinkering he's doing.
Until he reaches that point, though, O'Brien plans to continue to try to find the right mix of players.
He is considering shaking up the lineup again after his starters were thoroughly outplayed for the second straight game in their 114-80 loss to the Miami Heat.
"I don't know if we have enough speed in our starting lineup," O'Brien said. "Clearly we are not getting it done. The last couple of games, we have not scored well. We did a good job with that unit to start out the previous three games, but right now it's not working. We need to continue to re-evaluate everything."
The Pacers' starters have been outscored 160-61 in the past two games. The second unit made the game respectable in the second quarter each of the past two nights.
"We can't be playing the way we've been playing in the first unit," starting point guard Earl Watson said. "We have to come out and we have to have a style of play. We have to have a personality. We have to have characteristics. We have to set the tone.
"The second unit played great, but no matter what, we have to get both units to play at the same time at a high level in order for us to compete and win."
