Halftime score: Pacers lead Hawks 37-29

With both teams under 40 points, there's not much to the game flow in this Game 6 between the Indiana Pacers and Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers forced the Hawks into 14 misses to finish the first half, holding the Hawks to 29 points and 23.7% shooting. The Pacers have done this by taking away transition and second chance opportunities from Atlanta and forcing Josh Smith into long jumpers.

But despite a strong defensive presence bringing out the boo birds to Smith and his shot selection, the Pacers themselves haven't done much on the offensive end themselves. Roy Hibbert leads them with 10 points on 5-8 shooting, getting quality minutes off the bench from Tyler Hansbrough, who has six points on 1-1 shooting. Indiana is dominating the game on the glass, winning the battle 31-20, led by Lance Stephenson with eight.
