Pacers Links: Pacers, Rockets a big story in Manila; Vogel thanks Dwight Howard for 'staying out West'

USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers drew plenty of attention wherever they went in Manila yesterday which included their first practice at Mall of Asia Arena.

Big ups to the Philippines press corps for their coverage of every move made by the Indiana Pacers since arriving in Manila. Between the local coverage and all of the Tweets from the traveling Pacers party, we can get a pretty good feel for how things are going and it appears the folks in the Philippines are as bonkers for NBA basketball as we have heard.

The Pacers and Rockets should have a great atmosphere to play in at Mall of Asia Arena on Thursday morning. Plenty of stories from Manila in the links along. Also love this Tweet of Frank Vogel running into Dwight Howard and thanking the dynamic big man for remaining in the Western Conference to minimize his matchups with the Pacers over the next few years.
