Pacers turn focus to consistency against Hawks
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Now that Indiana has evened the series with Atlanta, the Pacers can focus on fixing another big problem — playing with consistency.
The last time Indiana won two straight with its regular starters on the court was mid-March, and it seems every time the Pacers have had a chance to relax, they have.
Coach Frank Vogel is hoping things change Monday night when the Pacers have a chance to take control of this best-of-seven playoff series by protecting their home court. The Pacers did that better than any team in the league during the regular season.
But Atlanta has won two of its last three at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and a Game 5 win would send the Hawks home with a chance to end the series.
