The Pacers heard all of the talking.
The noise about the Hawks, an eight seed, taking a 3-1 lead over a number one seed. Indiana wasn’t having it.
Even though the trailed late in the fourth, Indiana found a way to win against the Hawks, 91-88. Paul George finished with 24 points – 18 of those in the second half – and 10 rebounds in the win. The stat line gave George his fourth double-double in as many games this postseason.
More importantly, the win sends the series back to Indiana tied, instead of down a less favorable 3-1.
Game 5 is Monday at 7:00 PM EST.
