NEW YORK (AP) — Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel has clinched the Eastern Conference coaching spot for next month's NBA All-Star game.

The Pacers improved to 30-7 with their 116-92 victory over Sacramento on Tuesday night, guaranteeing they will have the best winning percentage in the East among eligible teams. Miami's Erik Spoelstra is ineligible after coaching in last year's game.

It will be the first All-Star coaching assignment for Vogel, in his fourth season leading the Pacers.

The West coach for the Feb. 16 game in New Orleans is still to be determined. Gregg Popovich, whose San Antonio Spurs lead the West, is ineligible.
