The Indiana Pacers played host to the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of the team's opening-round series.
In the series opener, the Hawks got off to a quick start as they took an 11-6 lead. The Pacers immediately responded and never looked back as they earned the Game 1 victory, 107-90.
The NBA's Most Improved Player, Paul George, led the Pacers with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists for his first postseason triple-double. The biggest difference in the game was the discrepancy in free-throw attempts and percentage. The Pacers were 30-of-34 from the line while the Hawks were 7-of-14.
In Game 2, the Hawks needed to respond with improved ball on both ends of the floor and more aggressiveness in order to get the split of the first two games in Indiana. Were they able to do so?
