The Indiana Pacers visit the "Highlight Factory" this afternoon to take on the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers will need to match the effort they put forth against Utah on Friday night in order to have a chance at their sixth straight win today.
The Hawks have lost two of their last three games (both on the road) including their last game at Philadelphia. Today's game offers the Hawks a chance to get right at home against a Pacers team that is playing as well as they have all season. I must admit, I have the same feelings about this game as I did on Friday with the Jazz in town, which is that I can't see how the Pacers will win this one. Of course, the Pacers won by dominating much of the second half. They'll need at least that same type of effort to leave Atlanta with another W.
