(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers can take a 2-to-nothing lead and maintain home court advantage in their playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks by winning tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Pacers were dominant in beating the Hawks in the series opener Sunday, a 107-90 decision that featured Paul George netting Indiana's first postseason triple-double since 1998.
George leads the team in scoring, rebounding, and assists, and was named the league's Most Improved Player Tuesday during a news conference at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Forward Josh Smith is averaging 17 points per game for the Hawks and will take the court tonight after missing practice Monday with an ankle sprain.
Smith practiced on Tuesday, but could be limited in his production after suffering the injury in the waning moments of game one.
Tipoff tonight from the Fieldhouse is at 7:30.
