Larry Bird again wants the Indiana Pacers to play at a faster pace this season.

Bird and the Pacers hired Nate McMillan, who has historically coached slower paced teams.

"We want a style where we can score," Bird said. "I'd like to score 105 points a game or maybe 106, but still defend the way we have.

"Nate's got over 900 games that he's coached in the NBA and he's got a style...I think he’s going to do an excellent job for us."
