Take your choice on what was more embarrassing Friday night inside the sold-out Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Indiana Pacers’ atrocious defense, especially on the perimeter.

Or maybe it was that the fieldhouse felt like Staples Center because there were so many Los Angeles Lakers fans in the building.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel was more livid over his team’s defense.

Point guard George Hill made sure the media knew he didn’t like the lack of fan support for the hometown team.

I say the Pacers should be ashamed of both of those things.

And to put the knife in even further, the Pacers couldn’t even beat the Lakers while Kobe Bryant resorted to the role of cheerleader for the final three quarters.
