After running into a buzzsaw on Friday night in their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Indiana Pacers face another tough challenge on the road against the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers beat the Hawks in the playoffs last season but , as will be the case throughout the season, Indiana's injury list has a completely different team facing the Hawks with generally the same lineup as we saw in the playoffs.

Atlanta is actually in better shape with quality big man, Al Horford back in the starting lineup at center after missing the bulk of the season last year with a pectoral injury.

The Pacers may have a new look in the starting lineup after the starters struggled together in the first two games. Some combination of Solomon Hill and Luis Scola may give way with Lavoy Allen making a case for more minutes. With David West (ankle), George Hill (knee) and C.J. Watson (foot) still unavailable, the options for Frank Vogel are limited.
