Pacers’ Coach: Nobody’s Feeling Sorry For Us

The Indiana team that made an appearance at TD Garden Friday hardly resembled the group that was expected to compete among the NBA elite for years. George has a broken leg. Lance Stephenson was brought to Charlotte by Michael Jordan. George Hill is out until December with a bruised left knee. C.J. Watson has a bruised right foot. And David West is beginning to make some basketball moves on his sprained right ankle but is out for another two weeks.

The Pacers’ franchise goals have shifted dramatically in the past three months. They might have had a chance to compete without Stephenson, but the loss of George was monumental, and then the Pacers were besieged with nagging injuries that make competing for a playoff spot a chore.

“Nobody is feeling sorry for us and we’re not feeling sorry for ourselves,” coach Frank Vogel said. “We’re coming close to some victories but we’ve got to squeeze some out. I’m a patient guy in any situation, whether it be the team that’s competing for the best record in the East or the team that’s really banged up like this, you have to have patience. You have to have a teaching mentality, an improving mentality, and get the best out of whatever group you have.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
