Teague flipped up and over Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough on a drive to the basket. Ivan Johnson was called for a foul on the play for pushing Hansbrough. Johnson was assessed a technical foul during the ensuing time out for arguing the call.
Teague has started all 26 games for the Hawks this season and is averaging 12.3 points and 5.0 assists per game. Behind Teague Atlanta has Kirk Hinrich and Jannero Pargo who just had his contract picked up for the remainder of the season. Hinrich struggled initially in his return to the court from offseason shoulder surgery but broke out against the Pacers for 17 points on 7-9 shooting in relief of Teague.
