Pacers Final Score: Hawks rock Pacers 90-69

Kevin C. Cox

Indiana fell to 2-1 after a woeful showcase.

The Indiana Pacers didn't bother to show up in Game 3 of their series against the Atlanta Hawks, being given 69 points by the league to make it seem as if they did. Things did happen in this game regardless of the pitiful final score. The Pacers actually had an 8-1 lead to start this one, but things went south immediately, finishing with 27.2% shooting, 4-25 from three point range, gave up 13 offensive boards, had 22 turnovers, allowed 24 points off turnovers, and let Atlanta score 50 in the paint.

In a word, it was bad. The Pacers lost their 12th straight game at Philips Arena, somehow getting 18 points from David West and 16 from Paul George, though neither was particularly inspiring. Atlanta got contributions from Al Horford with 26 & 16 with Josh Smith scoring 14 with six rebounds and six assists.
