Atlanta is tied with Orlando, Brooklyn, Dallas and Sacramento for the third-worst record in the NBA at 20–45 at the time of writing. It got back on track with a loss at Toronto after its one-point win against Phoenix.
This is actually the second matchup with Indiana in the last nine days. The Hawks won for the first time in three matchups against the Pacers this season, 107–102 last Wednesday.
Atlanta dominated a third quarter in that matchup and held on in the fourth quarter. Bojan Bogdanovic dropped 26 for Indiana and six Hawks were in double-figures, including Mike Muscala off the bench. Muscala was frisky and put up 14 shots, missing all five of his three-point attempts.
Atlanta has some pretty good players, actually. Taurean Prince is one guy worth singling out as a guy having a bit of a breakout season without getting much attention.
His field goal percentage leaves something to be desired (41.5 percent) but he’s shooting well from the outside and has shown to be a reliable two-way player night in and night out. He was the man who nailed the game-winning three in the most recent victory over the Suns.
The Pacers are back into a tie for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference after briefly taking sole possession earlier this week.
It’s crowded 3-6 in the East. Indiana and Washington trail Cleveland by two games and the Cavs have a tough road trip coming. Some think one of those teams is set to pass Cleveland but I wouldn’t count on it.
Philadelphia is surging and even in the loss column, though it is still two wins out of that tie for fourth. Then there’s a bit of a gap between sixth and seventh, where Miami resides.
The Jazz came to town in Indiana’s last game and took it to the Pacers in a 20-point win. On paper, Indy matches up pretty well with the Jazz. It’s built similarly with Oladipo and Turner mirroring Mitchell and Gobert. Utah’s role players are on fire these days, though.
I continue to be really impressed with Turner. He’s still so far off the national radar but he’s a fantastic player, who will continue to do more and more, just slowly.
That’s the kind of player he is. He won’t do too much until he’s ready but he will steadily improve. As long as he stays healthy, it looks like he’s going to be a really nice pro for a long time. Indy better lock him up.
