The Pacers return to action a Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday night looking to gain the upper hand against the Atlanta Hawks in Game 5 of their first round playoff series.
The Pacers have been chasing the Hawks so far in the series, but have twice been able to even things up after wins in Games 2 and 4. Backing up their win in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon with a strong effort at home in Game 5 would put the Pacers in control of the series for the first time and should be enough to get them over the hump to advance. Frank Vogel spoke about the opportunity in Game 5 after practice on Sunday.
"Usually the first team to win two games in a row in a series usually wins the series," Vogel said. "We have an opportunity to do that, so that's our focus (Monday) night."
