The Indiana Pacers are now feeling the brunt of a 12-game losing streak in Atlanta as they try to get past the Hawks in their first-round playoff series. This is no time to deal with past demons, so the Pacers have to focus on the here and now, possession by possession to get back on track after fading quickly in Game 3.
No doubt, Frank Vogel and staff will have a game plan ready to beat the Hawks, but the players will have to exhibit the mental fortitude and physical toughness to execute that plan and give themselves an opportunity to win one in Philips Arena.
You have to assume that Larry Drew will stick with the big lineup and start Johan Petro at center instead of Kyle Korver at small forward. Petro spent his off day witnessing the birth of his child, so unless their is some complication with his return, I'd expect him to be in the lineup to force Roy Hibbert to show up.
