Really liked that fresh new look offensively, handing off to a RB up the middle for a short gain on first-and-10. Creativity, imagination.

Vogel joked regarding Granger: "As soon as we lose a game we're going to rush him back."
Danny Granger running on sideline during Pacers practice. Participate in some drills. Frank Vogel says, "Still a long ways away."
Let's not fall into that trap about Pacers not gettng respect from national media. They're getting plenty, and what difference does it make?
David West also said: "I want to try to go out and win every single game. I think we're good enough to do that."
David West did say road trip will "make or break us," but I don't think he meant it too literally. Probably won't give up if doesn't go well
This AM, Vogel showed film of John Wall’s 37 pts in a 19-pt win last meeting, issued a challenge to stop him. Wall had a season-low 8pts.
Paul George and David West are friends with Floyd Mayweather. West boxes in the summer. I asked him if he could spar with Floyd. "No way."
(Now) looking ahead to Pacers' 5-game Western trip, the consensus in the locker room is that the 1st game is the toughest. It sets the tone.
Vogel pulled Stephenson to prevent him from getting a triple-double the wrong way (10 TOs). Also didn’t want to compromise the next game.

Pacers beat the Wizards 93-73, win No. 15 and six in a row. Stephenson had 7/11/10. PG w/ a game-high 23. Now, they venture out West.
Area 55 and G2 Zone need to give it a rest.
For the record, I agree with Vogel pulling Lance. Sure, he was close to a triple-double, but his 8 turnovers are concerning. Very forced.
I actually like the move. Vogel sending the right message.
Crowd boos as Orlando Johnson checks in for Lance with 3:04 left.
Fans boo Vogel’s substation of OJ for Stephenson, three points shy of his third triple-double.
Stephenson now at 7-10-10. Looking for his shot, to say the least. Now leaving game to boos from crowd. Seems disappointed.
Wizards players on bench seemed amazed by Boomer being lifted to the rafters. I can hardly stand to watch.
Lance is forcing it big time. If he doesn't get back in the flow, it won't happen unless he winds up with 10 turnovers.
