Default EC PLAYOFFS RD 1 : (3)IND PACERS vs (6)ATL HAWKS

STARTERS:

IND

George Hill
Lance Stephenson
Paul George
David West
Roy Hibbert

ATL(unconfirmed starting lineup)

Jeff Teague
Devin Harris
Josh Smith
Al Horford
Johan Petro

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

IND

DJ Augustin
Orlando Johnson
Tyler Hansbrough
Ian Mahinmi

ATL

John Jenkins
DeShawn Stevenson
Ivan Johnson

Key Matchups:

This series is a matchup between size vs quickness. I think it would be a big mistake for ATL to start Smith at the 3, as although he's a good matchup defensively against George, they'd negate their quickness and spacing advantage on offence against a team that will likely lock them down with Smith playing the 3 with bad spacing. If I was ATL I would start Stevenson at the 3 as he'll be able to spread the floor while being a decent matchup against George. Overall, I think Indianas overall talent and defence will be too much for the Hawks, who will likely face the same problems as they always do with their effort, and not be able to score for minutes at a time.

PREDICTION:

IND in 5

i think this will be pretty close, Indiana in 6-7 games. A decent chance to upset. Indiana is having issues lately.

The Pacers boast one of the NBA's toughest defenses. If they aren't anemic on the offensive end, I foresee a sweep.

i love this pacers team. they'll never be a contender, but they're definitely be a team that'll be competitive for a while and be able to upset just about any team.

Why are the Hawks even in the playoffs?

Hawks are an awesome team when they`re healthy and have they`re shit together. Imagine if they had a legit defensive centre like an Omer Asik.
