For the Indiana Pacers, veteran guard A.J. Price is finder’s keepers — at least for the time being.

But Monday night’s winning coach (Frank Vogel) knows he wants Price around as long as possible, especially after his 22-point night helped Indiana end a six-game losing streak with a 97-86 victory over the Utah Jazz.

“I’m playing for my life, man,” he said after making 8-of-12 shots in his highest-scoring game since the last game of the 2013 season (playing for Washington). “I’m staying till they tell me to go or tell me to stay longer, either or.”

Said Vogel: “He can play. I don’t know why he’s bouncing around (from team to team), to be honest with you. He belongs in this league.”
