A coach can draw up a brilliant play, but it won't mean anything if the players don't execute it.
I've seen a few great plays by Vogel to know he's capable of it. Our team, unfortunately, has "takebadshotsitus" And they are young..

To anyone who thinks Vogel is not a good coach then you're clearly not paying attention to the playoffs.
Also if Vogel is kept. They need to hire a good offensive assistant coach.

I'm just tired of seeing our Back up point guard pound the ball for 10 seconds and not running the offense. I'd rather have TJ out there.

I say let Jeff run the point.

I am re-watching the game and I have not seen an iso play the whole 4th quarter and there is less than 2 minutes to go in the game.
almost every play has been a pick and roll or Granger coming off screens
To people bemoaning the iso calls at the end of games: Look around the NBA. That is 90% of what is called at the end of games. Isos for your best player. It's a call every coach makes because they all subscribe to the "get the ball in the hands of your best player" philosophy.
Where the heck is the triple thank button?? Anyway, I don't agree with Vogel not being a good coach. I think he's at least done enough to earn a shot at a full season with these guys. We's be discussing how likely we are to win the lottery with 1 ball under JOB right now.
But you're absolutely right about price. I've never gotten so down so fast on a guy as I have with him. Simply awful. DC, DJ and TJ should see all guard PT, with AJ only playing in garbage time.

There were no iso plays run in the fourth quarter
Wow, this thread is terrible.
It is simlar to the baseline end bound play. Where we give it to Hibbert by the 3pt line and Danny just runs around him and gets a open look from the Hibbert pick.
Re: the last play, Granger indicates that the coaching staff drew up three or four different options and implies both that the Chicago D stepped up and that the guys failed to execute. It was not supposed to be iso ball or the highly contested shot he ended up taking.
"We had three or four different options. They took them away from us," said Granger. "This is part of lack of ball movement and inexperience. We’re a young team. This is a little disappointing because we need to win at least one of these."

Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."
