Teague and George got off to a rocky start, and they’re still learning how to split ball-handling duties. (Teague is a free agent this summer, and has not made any decision regarding his future, according to sources). Turner is ready to do more, and Ellis needs the ball when he takes Miles’ spot alongside the four core starters. “We have a bunch of guys who play with the ball in their hands, and now they have to share,” McMillan said. “That takes time.”

They were embarrassed in New York. The Indiana Pacers’ attitude and play during the disheartening and embarrassing loss Tuesday to the mediocre Knicks had to be dealt with before they could get on their flight home. As a team, the Pacers decided to have a long conversation about the future of their season inside the visitors’ locker room in Madison Square Garden. “We had a good sit down,” point guard Jeff Teague said. “I think it did us some good. People got things off their chest that needed to be off their chest and I think it worked out. It was good talk for everybody, something we needed.”
However, Teague indicated the triangle offense isn’t well-suited for a penetrating point guard like himself and Knicks incumbent Derrick Rose. Teague, traded from the Hawks last summer to his hometown Pacers, said he’s not too familiar with the triangle except for the few times he’s been asked to defend it. Jackson has ordered a renewed emphasis on the triangle since the week before the All-Star break. “I never played in the triangle,’’ Teague told The Post before facing the Knicks on Tuesday at the Garden. “I don’t know too much about it – just from guarding it years in the past. So I recognize it.’’
