Game Preview:

The Pacers come into tonight's match up having won six of their last ten games to climb one game above .500 on the season. The Hawks defeated the Pacers back on Nov 16th in a game that Pacers point guard Darren Collison missed due to injury.

Keys to the Game:

Points shouldn't be hard to come by as if the Hawks will move the basketball then they should not have any trouble scoring. The challenge will lie in defending the Pacers in both the half court and in transition. The Hawks need to bounce back with a win tonight at home as the Eastern Conference standings have begun to tighten up considerably.
