The Indiana Pacers closed the first half on an 18-4 run to take a double digit lead into break in Game 7 against the Atlanta Hawks. Indiana was locked in defensively in the second quarter, holding Atlanta without a field goal in the last 6:11 of the half. The Hawks have missed 10 straight shots. The Pacers defense has been guided by, guess who, Roy Hibbert, who has nine points, five rebounds, and two blocks, helping to hold Paul Millsap 0-9 from the floor. Atlanta is shooting 30.2% while the Pacers are shooting 52.9%.
Paul George leads the Pacers with 16 points, hitting all five of his second quarter shots. He did pick up his third foul late in the half, however. Lance Stephenson has been active all over the floor with 10 points and six rebounds. David West is quiet offensively, but has eight boards.
