Teague will be a free agent this summer, and after finishing Game 4 with 15 points and 10 assists, including a critical steal and three-pointer down the stretch, he made clear that he hopes to remain with the Pacers. “I love Indiana,” Teague said. “You all know me, born and raised, tattoos on my arm. I’ve wanted to play for the Pacers my whole life. It’s a great opportunity for me and I love to be here.”
Storyline: Jeff Teague Free Agency
After the Pacers struggled a bit earlier this season, Teague cited a team meeting as the main reason for Indiana’s turnaround and his decision to take on more of a distributor role. “We had a meeting where we talked about sacrifices,” Teague said. “Everybody wants to score. I had a meeting with some of the coaches and they said, ‘You have to sacrifice, Paul [George] has to sacrifice, everybody has to sacrifice something because we have a really talented group.’ I didn’t need to go try to score more points, I needed to be a facilitator – getting guys open and getting guys easy shots. Once I figured that out, I think we started playing a little better.”
