Update: The Pacers announced Wednesday afternoon that Vogel will coach Wednesday night vs. Miami despite "food poisoning."
Pacers coach Frank Vogel is sick and questionable for tonight's game in Miami— David Benner (@PacersDMB) December 18, 2013
The line was set as a pick 'em early, in part because of LeBron James' ankle injury. The line has since moved to Miami -3.5 and you wonder how much of that is the possibility of Vogel's absence. Can a coach's absence really effect the game? You have to think so, just from a player confidence standpoint.
