    Frank Vogel Named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month

    Official NBA Release

    December 2, 2013

    NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2013 – The Indiana Pacers’ Frank Vogel and the Portland Trail Blazers’ Terry Stotts today were named the NBA Eastern and Western Conference Coaches of the Month, respectively, for games played in October and November.

    Vogel led Indiana to a 15-1 (.938) mark as the Pacers started the season 9-0 -- the best start in franchise history and tied for the team’s longest NBA winning streak. The Pacers also went undefeated at home with a 9-0 record -- the best home mark to start the season in franchise history. Indiana ranked first in the NBA in points allowed (85.6 ppg) and opponent field goal percentage (38.7). The Pacers also led the league in blocked shots (121) and outscored their opponents by an NBA-best 11.4 ppg.

    Stotts guided the Trail Blazers to a 13-3 (.813) record that included an 11-game winning streak, tying for the fourth longest in team history. The Trail Blazers also won seven straight road games, including sweeping a four-game road trip for the first time since January of 2003. On Nov. 1, the Trail Blazers posted their first win at Denver since December 2007 defeating the Nuggets 113-98; and on Nov. 15, Portland recorded its first win at Boston since March 2004, beating the Celtics 109-96.

    Other nominees for Coach of the Month were Houston’s Kevin McHale, the Los Angeles Clippers’ Doc Rivers, Miami’s Erik Spoelstra, Oklahoma City’s Scott Brooks and San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich.

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Well deserved.

    Though, I still absolutely ****ing hate the small ball lineup. I never wanna see Watson and Hill on the floor together again, especially if Orlando Johnson is playing 3.

    Outside of that one game where we saw the ill-fated and rather illogical Copeland/Scola frontcourt....did we really go Small ball that often where Scola/West weren't paired with Mahinmi/Hibbert?

    As for CJ and GH on the floor at the same time...I think that it is unavoidable given the # of minutes that they both play. It's not different than CJ and Lance. What I don't want is any 2 man combination of OJ, Copeland and Solo on the floor at the same time. All of them should be considered 4th/5th scoring options on the floor....not a 3rd scoring option.

    So we have the 2 newest Coachs Of The Month facing off against
    each other tonight. I will be staying up late tonight to watch this
    one.

    And huge congratulations to Frank Vogel. Clearly it is well deserved,
    and just one of many many more to come I'm sure.

    Frank sometimes tries to match-up with the opposing coach, Doc had CP3 and DC in at same time w/ Crawford at SF, and as much as I like Lance, he doesn't match up well against any of those options.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    I have no problem with Watson and Hill on the floor. But not with OJ. If there is a Jamal Crawford at the 3 and two point guards playing, then I want a defensive stopper out there. Why people think that any semblance of a non-traditional lineup for any portion of the game is bad I don't understand.
