Amid the controversy surrounding Nate Bjorkgren and the Indiana Pacers, Caris LeVert and Doug McDermott are choosing to stand by their coach and continue to play their best basketball.
Guard TJ McConnel, referring to their 104-93 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, said that they’re still standing by Nate Bjorkgen. Reports surfaced earlier this week that the coach’s future with the Pacers might be in peril.
“We played easily the worst game of the season yesterday. All the things circulating, I don’t think this looks like a locker room that quit on their coach. … We love playing for him. We’re going to continue to fight,” McConnel said, per Pacers reporter J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star.
