Nate McMillan threatens ‘major changes’ if Pacers are swept
Things are bad for the Indiana Pacers right now, and coach Nate McMillan warned that it could get worse if the team is swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
McMillan, seemingly wanting his team to play with pride after blowing a 25-point halftime lead in Game 3, warned of big changes if his team failed to respond after the devastating loss.
Nate McMillan: "If you go out there and give them the game, you lose a lot more. You lose respect. There could be a lot of major changes."

McMillan is in his first year as Pacers head coach, so he would stand a decent chance of surviving any clear-out. The real issue may be with their superstar forward Paul George, who may have eyes elsewhere and could ultimately have to make a decision on his future this summer. The Pacers fading like they have won’t make him feel any better about the team’s future.
