NBA Playoffs -- Pacers cage Hawks to even series at 1-1


PhilBoxing.com




SAN FRANCISCO -- The Indiana Pacers averted what would have been a disastrous 0-2 hole and destroyed to the Atlanta Hawks, 101-85, in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinals Tuesday night at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

After a disappointing Game 1 loss, Paul George played with a purpose and collected 27 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Luis Scola had a solid 20 points while George Hill finished with 15 and four assists.

C.J Watson added 10 off the bench for the Pacers, who sank 36 of 68 field goals (52.9 percent) including 8 of 17 from 3-land (47.1 percent),

The Hawks took a 52-48 halftime lead and appeared headed toward another huge road win, but the Pacers responded with 31-13 third quarter explosion to take a 14-point advantage entering the fourth stanza. Indiana was never threatened from that point on.

Now tied at 1-1, the best-of-7 series shifts to Atlanta for Games 3 and 4 beginning on. Thursday night (Friday AM in Manila).

Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 19 and Jeff Teague was held to 14 and four assists. Lou Williams and Mike Scott had 11 apiece and Atlanta shot just 39.2 percent from the field (31-of-79). (JSM)
