Pacers vs. Hawks Links: Indiana searching for winning stride in Atlanta

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Indiana Pacers face another tough opponent on the road when they visit the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

The Indiana Pacers continue their road trip on Tuesday night in Atlanta when they take on the Hawks at Philips Arena.

After an uninspiring 2-2 start to the season, in many ways, the Pacers' toughest opponent will be themselves. The sloppy play, the wavering energy and the apparent lack of any sense of urgency to correct the problems from the players is, well...a problem.

Somehow, the Pacers are not leading the NBA in turnovers, instead checking in at second with 18.8 turnovers per game (Houston is first at 19.7 tpg). The turnovers are an obvious, tangible sign of slippage by the Pacers, but getting a grip on the internal fight to combat the mistakes and compete is harder to gauge. But after getting rolled in San Antonio there should be some pride on display in Atlanta. Believe me, you'll know it when you see it.
