The Pacers wrap up their three-game road trip in Atlanta where they will face the Hawks and former coach Nate McMillan.
The Hawks are rolling since moving McMillan to the top chair, currently sitting in fourth place in the East and winners of seven of their last ten games. Injuries have pressed another former Pacers, Solomon Hill into a bigger role of late, as well, but the good health of Bogdan Bogdanovic has really helped keep the Hawks rolling despite what the young firepower they are missing in John Collins, Cam Reddish and De’Andre Hunter.
The Pacers remain in the same injury situation with Doug McDermott and Myles Turner questionable. The team could really use Turner’s defensive presence to help them head home on a good note.
This is the second of three games in the season series. The Pacers won the first game in mid-February, 125-113 with the help of 26 points from McDermott.
