Vogel changes big man rotation
By Nick Borges
Indiana head coach Frank Vogel moved Jeff Pendergraph ahead of Ian Mahinmi as the main backup center behind starter Roy Hibbert about two weeks ago, but heading into Game 4 against Atlanta Mahinmi is now ahead of Pendergraph once again.
From Mike Wells of The Indianapolis Star: "Vogel decided to go back to Mahinmi because of his defense."
The Pacers' defense didn't improve enough in Game 4 with Mahinmi in the lineup and now the series with Atlanta is tied 2-2.
