Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel’s playoff resume consists of 20 games.

He has led the Pacers to the second round of the playoffs. He’s even picked up a victory over LeBron James and Co. down in Miami during the playoffs.

But Vogel’s biggest challenge came Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Pacers came back home with the series tied 2-2 after losing both games in Atlanta where they couldn’t counter the adjustments made by Hawks coach Larry Drew.

Lose Game 5 and the Pacers faced the serious possibility of having their season end in Game 6 on Friday back in Atlanta, where they haven’t won since 2006.

The Pacers bounced back strongly by beating the Hawks 106-83 at the fieldhouse.

They lead the Eastern Conference first-round best-of-seven series 3-2. The home team has won all nine meetings between the Pacers and Hawks this season. Game 6 will be at 7 p.m. Friday.

“There’s been a series of moves,” Vogel said. “When you play a game and if something works or it doesn’t work, you make the adjustments. Their adjustments, give Larry Drew credit, changed the series a little bit down there. Hopefully we changed it back into our momentum. Hopefully we can get Game 6.”

Vogel knew something had to change.

He didn’t take his frustrations out on his players for their inability to contain Hawks forward Josh Smith in Games 3 and 4 or limit Atlanta’s 3-point attack in Game 4.

Vogel gave his starters the option of taking Tuesday off from practice. And for those who practiced, there was a lot of laughing and shooting games going on instead of working on different schemes.

“He was a little upset, but at the same time, he was positive,” Pacers point guard George Hill said. “I think he was little bit upset we weren’t playing the game he actually knew we could play with the energy and effort not being there. That was his main point.”

Away from his players, though, Vogel was in nonstop coaching mode.

The self-proclaimed workaholic spent the two days leading up to the game trying to figure out a way to counter Drew’s decision to go with Smith at small forward and to have shooters spacing the court.
