The Pacers have had absolutely no issues whatsoever taking care of the Hawks over the course of the first two games of this series. The two margins of victory have been decided by a total of 32 points. In both games, Indiana dominated on the glass. In both games, Indiana was the more aggressive team. In both games, there was never a doubt as to which side was superior. That being said, are the Pacers guaranteed to win Game 3 and 4 and finish this series off in a sweep? We’re really not all that sure, to tell you the truth. It’s amazing that the Hawks were able to even remotely stick around in Game 2 of this series, as they only had F Josh Smith on the court for a total of 20 minutes thanks to a ton of foul trouble. Had Smith been around for his regular allotment of 35-40 minutes as we have gotten accustomed to, this might have been a significantly different story. We know that this is a game that the Hawks are going to have to have, and the oddsmakers have adjusted accordingly. The Pacers have won four straight games in this series, but all four of these games have come at home. Now, Indiana has to go on the road, where it is just 1-6 ATS over the course of the last seven games at Phillips Arena. The Pacers could find themselves in some trouble on Saturday.
