It is officially time for the Indiana Pacers to hit the reset button and begin preparing to play their next game in playoff mode. After struggling in the final two weeks of the season, the Pacers will have to tap into their experience to recall their ability to ramp up their level of play for the post-season. Fortunately, they now have some solid playoff experience to lean on, despite the overall youth in the playing rotation.

The Pacers open up the first round against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday at 1p.m. ET. The game will be televised nationally on TNT and of the first three games scheduled for TV, only Game 2 is slated for NBA TV. Here's the full schedule:

- Game 1 in Indy: Sunday, April 21, 1p.m., TNT
- Game 2 in Indy: Wednesday, April 24, 7:30 p.m., NBATV
- Game 3 in Atlanta: Saturday, April 27, 7:30 p.m., ESPN
- Game 4 in Atlanta: Monday, April 29 TBD
- Game 5 in Indy: Wednesday, May 1 TBD
- Game 6 in Atlanta: Friday, May 3 TBD
- Game 7 in Indy: Sunday, May 5 TBD
