Pacers coach Frank Vogel said he talked to Hibbert on Sunday. "He obviously made a great mistake," Vogel told reporters. "He's very contrite, feels horribly about it. But I talked to him and just basically said we've got to move on from it. 'I know you feel terrible and you want to take words back, but you've got to — you issued your statement, and you have to move on from it and get your focus back on Game 7.' " USA Today Sports

What else did Vogel tell him? "It was simple," Vogel said. "Just I support him. I know he's not that person to do something like that or use those words, you know, and that it was a mistake. He knows he's wrong. I don't have to tell him he's wrong. He knows that. Just to understand we all love him, and we're going to help him move past it very quickly." USA Today Sports
