Frank Vogel’s 3-Point Defense On Shane Battier

Early In the first quarter on Memorial Day, the Heat finally got off to a hot start. It was primarily Chris Bosh‘s 10 first-quarter points, but Shane Battier — who has spent most of the series getting rammed by David West‘s shoulder — got in on the action. Battier got an open corner three-pointer, but had to contend with some unusual Frank Vogel defense.

Watch Indiana’s coach scream at the open Battier as he takes the three from the far corner right in front of the Pacers’ bench.

At that point it was still a wide-open game, but it must have felt awkward for Indy to see their coach trying to scream and throw off Battier. We’re guessing Shane had a chuckle later about the impromptu attempt to throw him off.

Should coaches avoid this sort of behavior?

    i mean, its not against the rules or anything, right?.. it is kinda unprofessional of a coach to do that tho.

    If I’m the Pacers players, I’m embarrassed. No, not because he screamed, but because he seems to be the ONLY one who shows passion and cares about defense for the full 48 minutes.
