The Pacers were on the wrong end of that tremendous game and comeback against the Celtics on Monday night. Indiana got down big on its home floor before rallying to take a five-point lead with 30 seconds to play.
Then Kyrie Irving hit a couple big threes and the Celtics started chipping away, which usually isn’t enough when you’re facing that kind of deficit with less than half a minute to go.
The Pacers only made one mistake but it was a perilous one. Bojan Bogdanovic lofted a pass right across the middle of the floor by the half-court logo that Terry Rozier picked off and sent home for the game-winning dunk. Then Darren Collison nearly threw in a ridiculous double-pump half-court prayer that clanked off the rim.
Myles Turner was a game-time decision and did end up playing but he wasn’t effective. He scored just two points in 27 minutes. You have to think he could have been the difference had he been healthy. Turner is having a phenomenal season as one of the most underrated stars in the league, on both ends.
Atlanta, meanwhile, got a rare win on Monday night. The Hawks beat the battered Miami Heat that was playing without four of its best six players. Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson, Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow all missed the game with injuries and Dion Waiters played sick.
But Atlanta only won the game by six. Taurean Prince scored 27 in an offensive outburst and Dennis Schroder chipped in 23.
The Hawks have yet to win back-to-back games this season. All seven wins are surrounded by red on either side and usually a lot of it. Schroder is really the guy who makes this offense go and he will have a difficult time finding space against Victor Oladipo. It ought to be an entertaining matchup, though.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction: Oladipo wills his team to a win.
Hopefully Turner will be back and more effective. If he is healthier, he likely will be effective. Atlanta’s interior is weak. Oladipo is on another level this season and won’t let his team lose this one.
