Vogel Seeks More Consistent Intensity
Frank Vogel wants the Pacers to maintain the same intensity against non-contenders as much as they have against teams like the Bulls, Lakers and Celtics.
"I don't think we're there yet," Vogel said. "I think we're close. I heard (analyst) Jeff Van Gundy say the thing about Oklahoma City and Chicago is that they brought it hard and more often than any team in the league.
"We've had times this year where we've played as well as anybody in the league, but we haven't brought it harder and more often than any other team," Vogel said. "We have to establish that consistency to where we can bring it at that level every single night."
