IC Cold Links: Pacers Keep Moving In Right Direction With Frank Vogel In Charge

Whatever Frank Vogel is doing as coach of the Indiana Pacers it is working because he has his team working well together and playing better than the sum of their parts on most nights.

They've even started to execute a little better down the stretch. Vogel has the player motivation part of his coaching duties down to a science, so as he moves into year two at the helm of the Pacers, those technical aspects of game management (late game fouls, playing rotations, play calling) for all 48 minutes need to continue to improve.

Vogel may need to get creative to motivate his players to not sleep on the New Jersey Nets tonight. The Nets are still missing Brook Lopez and will be without rookie MarShon Brooks and DeShawn Stevenson. But with Deron Wililams in action the Nets will always have a chance.

After the jump, check out the links with more on Vogel's first year with the Pacers. Mike Wells has some nice quotes from Danny Granger and Dahntay Jones on the change and Vogel's impact.
