The Indiana Pacers are on a slippery slope, and last night against the San Antonio Spurs it got even worse.
During their 26 point to the Western Conference leaders, two members of the sides frustrations spilled out during a time out and lead to a shouting match - in true Pacers fashion i'm guessing neither won.
"The Pacers are experiencing a leadership void at the moment and the only thing they’re racking up faster than turnovers and bad shots is finger pointing.
During a timeout in the second half, George Hill got into a verbal confrontation with Lance Stephenson on the bench and they had to be separated by teammates."
Things have not been going well for the Pacers at all recently and it seemed like it would only be a matter of time before something like this happened on the court.
They may still be one of the top teams in the East but their current form predicates to a swift exit from the playoffs, perhaps even in the first round.
Ever since Danny Granger left on the trade deadline day, Indiana's chemistry and rhythm on offense looks incredibly out of sync to how it did before on their incredible run to the top of the conference.
They look nothing like the legitimate title contenders they did then however and head coach Frank Vogel has to do something to bring his players together and make them a more cohesive unit before the post-season.
I'll leave it to center Roy Hibbert to sum up the Pacers fortunes, the All-Star big man said "we don't deserve the number one seed" and that the team is full of "selfish dudes." Not good.
