The Pacers and Hawks are tied 1-1 in the series as Pacers host the Hawks at their home court in Atlanta. Pacers dominated in Game 2's third quarter, stifling the criticisms of their faltering in the last seven weeks of regular season.
The Hawks beat Pacers relatively easily with 101-93, and built an 11-point lead in the first half of Game 2 on Tuesday night. However, Pacers turned their pace and outscored the Hawks 52-27 into the third quarter.
The Pacers won at least 55 games in the season and allowed 96.8 per 100 possessions, but their last six week's defense performance have left some doubting whether they can defeat the Hawks in the first round and the Miami Heat with home-court advantage.
The Hawks, on the other hand, have a strong offensive team. Paul Millsap has averaged 17.9 points and 8.5 rebounds a game and has his career-best 3.1 assists a game. Kyle Korver broke an NBA record after hitting a 3-pointer in 127 consecutive games, beating the old record of 89 set by Dana Barros. Meanwhile, Pero Antic has played exceptional ball when filling in for Horford who had been sidelined for injuries.
