Pacers Final Score: Hawks close out Pacers 89-86

Kevin C. Cox

The Pacers lose their second straight game, going ice cold in the fourth quarter to give up 18 straight to the Hawks.

Maybe it's only fitting the Indiana Pacers would match an 18-0 third quarter run by getting rolled by those same 18 points late in the fourth by the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers played some of their best basketball of the year, piecing together a great third quarter that put them comfortably in the lead, but matched it with a putrid fourth quarter that changed the complexion of the game. Kyle Korver drove the Hawks in their comeback, hitting a pair of huge three pointers to quickly close the gap and give the Hawks the win.

The Pacers were outscored in the fourth by 15, a score of 24-9, setting up the heartbreaker, but it was all the Pacers deserved by only being able to muster up three points in the final six and a half minutes of the quarter. George Hill and David West led the Pacers with 20 each with Paul George pitching in 13. Roy Hibbert had nine with Lance Stephenson off the bench adding in nine of his own. Al Horford led the Hawks with 16.
