Pacers suffering from Hawks’ headache!

Can the Pacers even up the series in Game 2?

The Pacers are struggling against the Hawks in the NBA playoffs!

They may have sealed the number one seed in the East, but Indiana’s form going into the NBA playoffs was anything other than championship-worthy. A 12-14 record since March 1st, a one-time stingy defense that has been leaking points left, right and center and rumoured discontent within the team had many experts predicting a tough time for the Pacers when the postseason got underway – and it looks as though those warners were right.

Saturday’s Game 1 home loss to the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks simply further underlined Indiana’s current struggles and has now heaped on the pressure to succeed when the teams take to the court again tonight. A career-best 28-point performance from Indiana-native Jeff Teague helped the Hawks to what could be a crucial win, especially as both teams know that the Pacers have struggled badly in Atlanta in recent years.

Many don’t believe that the Pacers have the stomach for a real playoff fight and whilst most think that Charles Barclay’s description of them as “wussies” is a bit over the top, Tuesday’s Game 2 showdown in Indiana could well be a make-or-break showdown for what promised to be a fantastic season!
