Hours before the Indiana Pacers found themselves caught in the middle of a tornadic offensive performance from Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley, there was a calm at FedExForum.

Players and coach David Fizdale have had some, well, interesting things to say in the wake of that dreadful 122-109 loss to the NBA-worst Brooklyn Nets. But this isn’t about one game, one lineup change or even one quote from Fizdale that at times has been taken out of context.
