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.
