Hey! It's May! The weather outside is nice and warm! The Pacers have a playoff game downtown!

Does it get any better?

Well, yeah, if the Pacers can win said playoff game, of course. Game 5 against the Hawks has the Pacers looking to regain the lead in the series after Atlanta evened things up at two games apiece on their home floor. The Pacers need to win just so we can have more nights like tonight throughout the month of May.

Defense wins championships and it will certainly win this series. The Pacers lost the defense edge on the road, so it is past time to reclaim it at the Fieldhouse. Let's go!
