article imageNBA Scores: Pacers even series with 91-88 victory over Atlanta

By Larry Seely     Apr 26, 2014 in Sports
Atlanta - The Indiana Pacers are finding that being the top seed in the Eastern Conference doesn't mean things won't be tough, but they regained home court advantage in the first round of the NBA Playoffs after a hard fought 91-88 victory in Atlanta on Saturday.
Paul George was once again the driving force for Indiana as their star forward scored a team high 24 points, including a late three-pointer that help sealed the win. George also added 10 rebounds and five assists in helping even the series at 2-2.
David West added 18 points and George Hill scored 15 for the Pacers. Center Roy Hibbert wasn't much of a factor, scoring just six points and hauling down only three rebounds, but some terrific team defense, especially in the final minute was key to victory.
Atlanta struggled down the stretch of the NBA regular season, but the Hawks have found something in the playoffs and are making the most of the eighth seed. Forward Paul Milsap scored a game high 29 points to keep the Hawks in the contest, but the rest of the team made just 20-66 shots from the floor and that's just not good enough when trying to pull off an upset.
With the series now tied, the two teams now head back to Indianapolis for game-5 on Monday night. With the Pacers now back in the drivers seat, it will take a near perfect game from Atlanta if they want to get back home court advantage and a shot at advancing into the next round.
