    Brian Shaw

    Just a few years back, Brian Shaw got the chance to interview to be the head coach of the Indiana Pacers. Didn’t work out, they went with Jim O’Brien instead. Now, Shaw is back in Indiana interviewing, but this time to be the lead assistant for Frank Vogel. That’s what Mike Wells of the Indianapolis…

Then he has gone into a series of workouts for teams and impressed by holding his own against other top point guards in the draft.

    Vogel

    Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has the report: The Indiana Pacers have made significant progress toward deciding to make interim Frank Vogel the permanent head coach while working to strengthen his grip on the locker room, league sources told Yahoo!

  5. Report: Minnesota dangling No. 2 pick, Pacers interested

    Granger_celebrates

    It makes a lot of sense for the Timberwolves to be shopping the No. 2 pick in the draft, which makes the numerous reports it is happening easy to believe. That pick is either going to be Derrick Williams — a likely four who maybe can play the three — or now-rising Turkish power forward…

    Apparently, despite getting the team into the playoffs and being able to spin a basketball on a toothbrush are not enough to impress Larry Bird. Frank Vogel, the interim coach who did a good job with the Indiana Pacers this season, will have competition from Mike Brown and Rick Adelman for the head-coaching job, according…

    Pacers owner Herb Simon has decided to keep Larry Bird around as team president. It took a few weeks for the Pacers to get around to making this decision, but they finally got there and announced it on Tuesday. “I’m quite pleased with the success we experienced this past season and pleased with the direction…

  8. Pacers take time with Vogel, so he interviews with Houston

    May 6, 2011, 11:05 AM EST

    Vogel

    If the Indiana Pacers don’t bring back interim Frank Vogel as coach, they are making a mistake. But before they can be bothered with Vogel, team president Larry Bird needs to sit down with owner Herb Simon and figure out who is running the team next season. And figure out the direction they want to…

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    Most times, the “interim” tag for a head coach is the kiss of death. It means you’ve taken over a team midseason already facing enough turmoil and losing that your predecessor was jettisoned. Usually management has another plan in mind but has to wait until the offseason to execute it. Often the players see the…

  10. NBA Playoffs: It took five games, but Bulls play like contenders

    Apr 26, 2011, 11:56 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    This looked like what we all expected this entire series to look like. The Chicago Bulls dominated Game 5 Tuesday game from the start, were up 11 at the end of one quarter, pulled away in the third quarter and cruised to a 116-89 win. Now they sit around until next Monday (when the NBA…

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Everyone expected the Bulls to finish up their first-round series in four or five games, and that’s exactly what they would do with a win at home against the Pacers tonight. However, each of the first four games has been far more competitive than most people thought they would be, and the Pacers have shown…

  12. Pacers coach Vogel: Win Game 5 and we win the series

    Apr 26, 2011, 3:01 PM EST

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    Because what the Pacers really want to do is give the Bulls some real motivation, we give you Pacers coach Frank Vogel, speaking at Tuesday’s shootaround (as quoted by several members of the media): “We feel like if we win this game tonight, we’ll win the series.” It sounds like he took the brown acid…

  13. Bulls’ Rose wearing “precautionary” walking boot for ankle; MRI negative

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    UPDATE 9:07 pm: According to Aggrey Sam over at CSN Chicago, Rose’s MRI came back negative. So, it is just a minor sprain. Which means like we say in the rest of this post, you can bet he plays the next game. 7:04 pm: Derrick Rose is go for Game 5. And you can expect…

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    It wasn’t easy, but the Indiana Pacers finally managed to beat the Bulls after losing three consecutive heart-breakers. While the Pacers controlled the game most of the way, they did manage to make things interesting by allowing the Bulls to end the game on a 22-11 run, and the Bulls were one Carlos Boozer three-pointer…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Can the Pacers find a way to win one?

    Apr 23, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    Three games decided by a total of 15 points. The Indiana Pacers have been close in this series. Very close. But when it came to end-of-game execution — and players who can execute under that kind of pressure — Chicago has it and Orlando struggles. The Bulls are up 3-0 and the only question that…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Bulls win yet another nail-biter

    Apr 21, 2011, 10:12 PM EST

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    It’s hard not to feel for the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers came into the series as heavy underdogs, each one of their games against the mighty Chicago Bulls has come down to the last few possessions, and they still find themselves on the verge of being swept after another heartbreaking loss. The Pacers needed to…

  17. NBA Playoffs: After two moral victories, Pacers search for actual victory

    Apr 21, 2011, 6:18 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Indiana Pacers put up a much tougher fight against the Bulls than anybody thought they would in the first two games of their playoff series, even though they lost both games. Like the old Simpsons quote goes: in a way, both teams were winners; but in a more accurate way, the Bulls were the…

  18. Pacers Darren Collison says he thinks he can play Thursday

    Apr 21, 2011, 12:05 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Indiana has played Chicago tough. They’ve been in it. Now they head home for Game 3 Thursday night. The question was would they be in it without Darren Collison, who sprained an ankle when he stepped back into the foot of a cameraman on the baseline last game. Turns out they may not have to,…

    According to the Associated Press, Indiana Pacers starting guard Darren Collison “expects to play” in game three of the Pacers-Bulls series.

  20. Have the Pacers laid out the blueprint to beat the Bulls?

    Tom Thibodeau

    Chicago vs. Indiana was supposed to be one of the blowouts of the first round. Our preview predicted a sweep. What the Pacers liked to do the Bulls could defend, and the Bulls had Derrick Rose. Two hard fought games in, the questions are not about this series — the Bulls are going to win…

    Apr 19, 2011, 1:10 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Indiana Pacers were able to put up yet another great fight against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, but they were once again left with nothing to show for their valiant effort. In game one of the series, the Pacers took the Bulls down to the wire because of their sharp jump shooting. The…

    As if things were not challenging enough in this series for the Indiana Pacers…. Late in the second quarter the Pacers starting point guard Darren Collison rolled his ankle when he stepped on the foot of a camera man out of bounds along the baseline in what was a fluke accident. Collison sat out the rest…

    Bulls' Rose passes the ball around Pacers' Hibbert during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Indiana Pacers came out of Game 1 — where they led until the final minute and almost pulled the upset — thinking that they can play with the Chicago Bulls. But can they? The Bulls can play much better than they did in game one — look for them to focus on tightening the…

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    Roy Hibbert of the Pacers says no way the Bulls will sweep them. That sure felt like the Pacers best chance in Game 1, though. Shane Battier hits the game-winning three early in the day, his wife had their baby daughter that night. Damn, that’s a day. Congrats to him. Great story on why Matt Barnes…

    Bulls' Rose passes the ball around Pacers' Hibbert during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Chicago Bulls finished the regular season with an NBA-best 62 wins. The Indiana Pacers finished the regular season with 37 wins. There was not supposed to be a lot of suspense surrounding the two teams’ first-round matchup. However, nobody told the Pacers they were supposed to go quietly against the Bulls, and the NBA…
