The Indiana Pacers head to their personal house of horrors to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night at Philips Arena. The Pacers have not only struggled to beat the Hawks in Atlanta the past few years (lost last eight at Atlanta) they have rarely come close.
The Hawks have lost three straight games and continue playing without Al Horford after he suffered a shoulder injury when the Hawks played at the Fieldhouse. After he left that game, the Pacers were able to keep Joe Johnson and Josh Smith in check and cruise to an impressive win. Just winning tonight will be impressive will also depend on the Pacers ability to keep Johnson and Smith in check.
