GREENWOOD, IN—The Pacers returned to the practice court Monday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse following a loss to Oklahoma City. Frank Vogel has decided to make a change in the lineup, hoping to spark the second unit. Ben Hansbrough is going to take struggling D.J. Augustin's place at point guard. According to Pacers.com Vogel called the move "for the short-term" and acknowledged the need to improve play from the entire bench.
The fans will get their first extensive look at Hansbrough Wednesday when the Pacers host Cleveland. However, some shoppers at Greenwood Park Mall got a glimpse of Ben and Tyler Hansbrough in action Monday night. The brothers were among a contingent of Pacers who participated in the Annual Shop with a Pacer holiday event. Pacers players were paired up with families from United Christmas Service, a program of United Way of Central Indiana.Simon Malls provided children with $150 American Express® Simon Giftcards, and Finish Line is providing a special in-store discount.
In addition, each family in attendance will receive tickets to the Pacers game against the Cavaliers on Dec. 12, a $50 Kroger gift card and a Pacers goodie bag.
