Posted Jan 15, 2014 12:10 AM

NEW YORK -- Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel will coach the Eastern Conference All-Stars for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game, to be played on Sunday, Feb. 16, at New Orleans Arena.

The Pacers (30-7, .811) clinched the best record in the conference through games played Feb. 2, by virtue of their 116-92 win over the Sacramento Kings on Jan. 14.

Vogel, the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for games played in October/November, is in his fourth season at the helm for the Pacers. He was named interim coach with 38 games remaining in the 2010-11 season, and had the interim tag lifted on July 6, 2011. Overall, Vogel owns a 141-81 (.635) career record as Pacers coach.

The West All-Star coach will be determined by the best record in the conference through games played on Sunday, Feb. 2. Miami's Erik Spoelstra and San Antonio's Gregg Popovich coached last year's All-Star Game, making them ineligible for the honor this year.

The 63rd NBA All-Star Game will be played at the New Orleans Arena on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014 (8 p.m. ET), televised exclusively on TNT and broadcast exclusively on ESPN Radio in the U.S.
