The Indiana Pacers are back in action on Tuesday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks for a little preseason action at the Fieldhouse. The Hawks are playing with a smaller lineup this year which includes sharp-shooters Kyle Korver and Anthony Morrow. Hard to believe they'll be running a small starting lineup with Korver at small forward, but as long as Korver isn't playing with the Bulls, I don't are what the Hawks do with him. One thing is for sure, that lineup will test the Pacers perimeter defense.

The Pacers overall defense hasn't been fabulous through the first two preseason games. Still too much fouling and too many guards getting int the lane with the ball. Obviously, starters are a game-time decision in preseason, although Danny Granger will continue to sit out with Gerald Green taking his spot in the lineup.
