At halftime of the Spurs-Mavericks Game 1, TNT commentator and former NBA star Charles Barkley went off on the Indiana Pacers after they dropped Game 1 at home to the 8th seeded Hawks. Barkley called the Pacers "wussies" for lack of a better term, and said they were letting down both Frank Vogel and Larry Bird.
"You guys talk all that noise all year, 'We want homecourt,' and then you come out (Saturday) and play like dogs."
Barkley said he was disappointed and dropped his signature, "C'mon, man."
