it's not even explainable how they became like this. Losing Granger and getting Bynum and Turner?
Paul George's stupidity during the season off the court?
What's going on???

This! To me that is far too much change in season for a team that was going so good at the time. There seems to be something wrong with chemistry now too which is odd considering that seemed to be their main strength not long ago.

what a dumbass. This guy will be wrong for sure.

Not really surprised Hawks won game 1, and with the way the Pacers played, I wouldn't be surprised if the Hawks win the series.

Well, it looks like the Pacers from the 2nd half of the season are still here, and not the dominating defensive team from the first 2 months. IND may very well lose this series if they continue to play the way they have the past 4 months, and there's no signs of that not continuing to happen judging by how they played in last nights game.

If ATL had Horford this would be a sweep.

Roy Hibbert is the most overrated player in the NBA.

Other than bringing on the new guys, one other chemistry changing factor has been about 3 shots per game taken away from George Hill and now being taken from Lance Stephenson.

Last season both Stephenson and Hill both played crucial roles for the Pacers. Hill was a big game player and hit timely and clutch shots while being the quarterback, he was looking a bit like Billups; Stephenson was just a wildman who made things happen without really having any plays run for him.

This year Stephenson has the ball in his hands more often and kind of plays the role that Hill played last year, meanwhile Hill appears to be the odd man out in the starting lineup on the offensive end.

I think the Pacers miss an aggresive George Hill and in some ways miss the more chaotic Stephenson of last year.

Pacers have sucked for the past two+ months. I don't think they can turn it on now. And the match-ups give advantage to Hawks. So Pacers will be out soon.

If ATL can actually win this series (Huge if) and the Raps get by Brooklyn we wouldn't have to face the Heat in the 2nd round anymore

Oh I thought the lowest seed would always face the highest seed, even in the 2nd round. But the PLayoff Bracket on NBA.COM suggests otherwise. Dang.
