The Indiana Pacers took the defending champion Miami Heat down to the very wire in Game 1 of what is expected to be an epic Eastern Conference Finals between the two NBA juggernauts.

However, with only 2.2 seconds remaining in overtime, Pacers coach Frank Vogel elected to sit his 7-foot-2 shot blocking monster, Roy Hibbert, on the bench. With Hibbert looking on helplessly, reigning MVP LeBron James drove to the basket for a game-winning layup with exactly zero time remaining in the game, and the second-guessing was on.

Vogel called into The Dan Patrick Show in order to explain his thought process, as well as to describe what his team will be doing moving forward.
