This game will complete the season series against Atlanta which the Pacers currently lead, 2-1. The one loss came on the road 10 days ago when the Pacers turned the ball over 24 times and struggled to get any rhythm on the offensive end aside from Bojan Bogdanovic. Victor Oladipo needed 25 shots to score 22 points and made just one of nine three-point attempts. That's how you lose to the team with the worst record in the Eastern Conference.
After a similar rough shooting night against the Jazz on Wednesday, the Pacers will try to bounce back with a win at home before hitting the road for a touch challenge in next two games at Boston and Philadelphia. Darren Collison may return the the lineup which should give the Pacers a boost if he is ready to play.
The Hawks have lost four of their last five and played without their starting backcourt in their final game before the break. Dennis Schroder and Kent Bazemore are both expected to start against the Pacers.
