Atlanta Hawks vs. Indiana Pacers: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
The Indiana Pacers absolutely dominated the Atlanta Hawks en route to a 106-83 Game-5 win.
The difference maker was the interior dominance by David West, with 24 points, and Roy Hibbert, with 18 points.
Paul George also had a ridiculous night, with 21 points on 7--of-8 shooting, while grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out five assists.
The Atlanta Hawks shot just 33.3 percent from the field, and Josh Smith missed a majority of the second half after picking up his fifth foul early in the third quarter.
Game 6 on Friday night will be a huge game for the Hawks, as they are now facing elimination at the hands of a Pacers team that can at least play at home.

Larry Drew throwing in the towel. He empties his bench and his team down 22 with 5 min left— Mike Wells (@MikeWellsNBA) May 2, 2013
That's it for the Hawks. The second unit is completely in for the Hawks, they've officially given up.

Every Pacers player is in the plus of the +/- except for Tyler Hansbrough. Not a shocking turn of events there as Hansbrough has 3 points (1-of-4 from the field), 3 rebounds, 3 turnovers and 4 personal fouls.

Pacers have blown this game back open. They're up 91-72 w 5:52 left. West w 24, George with 21 and Hibbert with 16— Mike Wells (@MikeWellsNBA) May 2, 2013
This Pacers team is the team that the Miami Heat should be afraid of playing. When Roy Hibbert and David West combine for 40 points and Paul George hasn't missed a shot, the Pacers have a chance at beating the Heat.

Josh Smith is back in the game. Okay Hawks fans, this is the chance the Hawks have to get back in this one. Yes, even though they are down 15.

I'm guessing that Smith will pick up a foul in the next three minutes.
Hill didn't hit the shot, but that was a great kick out pass from DJ Augustin to get him the wide open look.— NBA Sports City (@NBASportsCity) May 2, 2013
Ivan Johnson just called for the phantom technical foul. That was a case of the refs being afraid that something was going to get out of control if they didn't step in.

I'm amazed that the Hawks are shooting 35.2 percent from the floor, and yet, have committed only 4 turnovers.
The Pacers are letting them hang in here, and that's dangerous especially knowing that J.R. Smith will come back soon.

Josh Smith is still riding the pine, thanks to having five fouls in 22 minutes.

What do the Hawks need to get back in this one? DEFENSE. DEFENSE. AND MORE DEFENSE.

There's an unrealistic possibility that it was actually Josh Smith.

Nice decision by the usual trigger happy Lance Stephenson to dish that one out to the corner for the easy three ball. Pacers continue to dominate.
