Pacers want actions to make statement vs. Hawks
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers must protect their home court Tuesday night against Atlanta to avoid falling into a 2-0 deficit in the best-of-seven first round series.
The Hawks expect Indiana to change a few things. That could include All-Star Paul George defending Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague. But they remain confident they can win a third straight game in Indy — against the Eastern Conference’s top seed and NBA’s best home team.
Teague has scored 53 points in his last two games against Indiana. Pacers coach Frank Vogel declined to say what other changes he has planned to deal with the Hawks’ array of 3-point shooters.
