Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks will open their first round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.

The playoff series between the Atlanta Hawks and the Indiana Pacers is set to begin on Saturday, April 19 with Game 1 at Bakers Life Fieldhouse. The matchup will be televised on SportSouth and ESPN although the start time still has not been determined.

Atlanta split four regular season meetings between the two clubs including a 107-88 win earlier this month. The Hawks won both contests in which center Pero Antic played.

The complete playoff schedule will be announced on Wednesday night. Entering Wednesday the only playoff series in the East that was set was the Indiana/Atlanta matchup. Miami, Toronto, Chicago, Brooklyn and Charlotte have all clinched spots in the playoffs but their exact seed was still subject to change.
