Pacers looking to play smaller, faster next season

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indiana Pacers might be getting a new look next season.

Two days after being eliminated from the playoff race, president of basketball operations Larry Bird told reporters he wants the Pacers to follow the NBA's new trend by playing faster and smaller.

It would be a dramatic style change for a team that built its reputation around old-school basketball. But after an injury-plagued season left Indiana out of the playoffs for the first time in five years, Bird is trying to come up with a blueprint that will put Indiana back in the title conversation.
