On to the next one.

The Indiana Pacers survived to beat the Chicago Bulls on Monday in game one of three in a row and four in five days. Frank Vogel didn't look ahead on Monday, instead staying in the moment to focus on beating the Bulls which required 44 minutes from Paul George, 38 minutes from George Hill and 36 minutes of beast, er...David West.

Now the focus turns to the Atlanta Hawks, a team that has been a bad matchup for the Pacers over the past few years. But the Pacers are at home again tonight, riding a 14-game winning streak at the Fieldhouse. The Pacers may need a little more help off the bench, but the Hawks will be a tad short-handed with center Zaza Pachulia expected to miss the game and guard Devin Harris questionable after missing Atlanta's loss to Chicago on Saturday with a sore foot.

Vogel got his money's worth out of the heavy minutes from his top three options with West scoring 29 points and grabbing nine rebounds to lead the team, Hill quietly adding 22 points and six assists and of course, Paul George doing a little bit of everything with 21 points, five assists, 11 rebounds and these highlights.
