ATLANTA (WISH) - The Pacers returned to work Sunday at Phillips Arena with a renewed sense of resolve.
"We understand we didn't play a very good game last night, but we're not going to overreact," said Pacers forward David West. "We've been good about not overreacting or getting too down on ourselves throughout the year."
Coach Vogel said he was most disappointed with the sluggish effort and lack of mental focus from his team in Game 3, adding the importance of holding his players accountable for their mistakes.
"As a parent, your kids will do whatever you'll allow them to get away with, so as a coaching staff, you need to make sure you're hammering details and having them execute what they're supposed to execute," said Vogel.

The team described today's film session as "fiery" and today's practice as intense, but they feel they're ready and refocused for Game 4.
"We're on a mission, wasn't the Pacers team we've been used to seeing the first two games last night," said Pacers guard George Hill. "I'm sure everyone has a bitter taste in their mouth, but we have to focus on the task at hand and that's to win Game 4."
The Pacers still have a 2-1 advantage in the best of seven series. Game 4 at Phillips Arena tips off Monday at 7:30 p.m.
