Andy Lyons

The Pacers pieced together a tremendous second half as Paul George scores 27 and Luis Scola scores 20 to help tie the series with Atlanta at 1-1.

The Indiana Pacers finally pieced together a huge second half burst, finally showing up for the 2014 NBA Playoffs with a 31-6 run late in the third quarter as they capped their first win of the postseason to tie the series at 1-1 against the Atlanta Hawks as the series will shift towards Atlanta.

The Hawks shot the ball exceptionally well in the first half as Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap continued their reign of terror, but the Pacers finally keyed into their defensive identity in the second half as they shut down Atlanta en route to the late win. Millsap and Teague had six second half points combined and the Hawks were 1-14 from three point range.

Paul George led the way with 27 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, and four steals. Luis Scola was huge with 20 points and seven boards. George Hill had 15 points, all in the second half, and Ian Mahinmi was a big defensive presence, with a pair of blocks helping Indiana to the series tying victory.
