“You have to stay focused and stay with the game plan. You don’t play the scoreboard, you play the game and you always play the game the right way for the full 48 minutes.”
Head coach, Indiana Pacers:
Respect the game and play the game the right way. It’s all about team for me. No one person is bigger than the team. It’s about representing that name that’s on the front of the jersey. It’s not about branding yourself.
I work for the Pacers organization. It’s all about Indiana Pacers, and representing this organization the best that you can, and you’re giving 100 percent to everything you do.
“We moved the ball and got it to the open man. We played the game the right way. We talk about that all the time, you play the game the right way and normally good things happen.”
Basketball is my favorite sport
I like the way they dribble up and down the court…
It’s here. First day of the NBA playoffs. Flush the records down the toilet.

Grizzlies at Spurs, 8 p.m. ESPN
Jazz at Clippers, 10:30 p.m. ESPN
For each game I will be charting the foul or defend. Three-point shooting and assists to turnovers.
Enjoy the games…
“When you play the game the right way, you get rewarded for that. Turnovers and one-on-one ball won’t get it done. We’ve got to bring consistency to both ends of the floor every night.”
