Indiana Pacers to bench every single starter

The Indiana Pacers have gone from consensus number one team in the East to putting together a run that the tanking Milwaukee Bucks are jealous of.

And head coach Frank Vogel is desperately searching for a way to turn around his sides fortunes.

But it seems like Vogel has settled on the old adage that less is more. A whole lot less to be exact.

According to Candace Buckner of The Indianapolis Star, none of the Pacers’ five regular starters will will take to the hardwood on Wednesday in their game against the Bucks.

The Pacers’ head coach told reporters on Tuesday that he was going to be giving his team more rest and would be sitting a few starters on Wednesday night when they traveled to Milwaukee.

“Not everybody will play,” Vogel said. “We’ll pick our spots over the final four games to get the guys that need rest some rest.”

Apparently, when Vogel said “not everybody” would play, he meant exactly none of the starters.

So that means a nice day off is in store for Paul George, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, David West and Roy Hibbert. 

Maybe it will rejuvenate their mis-firing touch. Frank Vogel is certainly hoping so.
