On the heels of his team puking all over their shoes in an embarrassing 115-83 loss at the hands of the hosting Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird had this to say:

“I can’t believe my team went soft,” Bird told Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star over the phone. “S-O-F-T. I’m disappointed. I never thought it would happen.”

Bird’s comments are sure to motivate the team, but it might be too late. The Pacers are in a 3-2 hole and Danny Granger’s status for Game 6 remains uncertain after spraining his ankle.
