A crucial Eastern Conference matchup comes to form as the Indiana Pacers and Atlanta Hawks go at it.
The Hawks and Pacers sit 6 and 7 in the East as not only are positions on the line, but both teams are trying to hold off the calvary behind them.
The Pacers will be part of a back to back this weekend that will see them start in Dallas on Saturday afternoon before heading into Atlanta for this one.
The Pacers have won 2 in a row as they not only look to steer clear of the 8th spot, but also attempt to catch Atlanta for that 6th seed.
The good news for the Pacers, they come into this back to back on plenty of rest. Indiana was last in action on Monday at home against the Spurs. The Pacers played a stellar defensive game against the Spurs, allowing just 91 points.
Indiana will look to use Paul George, as he’s been the driver of the team this season. George shot 7 of 20 from the field and hit all 7 free throws attempted in the win over San Antonio.
Atlanta continues to drop in the standings and now holding onto the 6th seed is the only thing they need to worry about. A slip up to 7 would put a lot of pressure on them as the bottom of the East is completely cluttered.
It would also be a difference in matchups as they would have to deal with Toronto in the first round. Given that, the Hawks have to win games like this, especially at home.
While Atlanta looks in their rear view mirror, they are just 0.5 game behind 5th place Charlotte, who has been surging.
Look for Atlanta to continue their home dominance here. They have gone 19-12 and while that wasn’t as good as last season, the Hawks wouldn’t be where they are right now without their own building.
Back on 2/5 the Hawks defeated the Pacers 102-96 at home.
