Carlisle has preached defense to Pacers
Under Rick Carlisle, the Pacers are one of the most improved defensive teams in the league.
I'm not saying the piano playing graduate of the University of Virginia, Class of 1984, contributed anything to a gene pool that produced 11 children of which Wallace was the 10th. But he did turn an offseason sign-and-trade throw in into a two-time defensive player of the year.
But as we looked over this year's boxscores in search of the best and worst teams in terms of defensive improvements as determined by scoring, we noticed that what Carlisle giveth he can also taketh away and give to someone else.
