The Pacers wrap up the regular season in Atlanta where they play the Hawks to officially finish the marathon that is the NBA regular season.
With the playoffs starting this weekend, the Pacers’ focus is already on the Celtics as they expect to rest several key players with an eye toward a fresh start in the playoffs.
Darren Collison will be the only regular starter to play in Atlanta since he rested via injury recently. That puts the rest of the Pacers roster in play for some run against the Hawks who have been better than frisky over the past few weeks with young stars emerging in Trae Young and John Collins.
