The Pacers will go with their familiar starting lineup and Pacers.com writer Scott Agness reports that Paul George will get the initial assignment against Atlanta's Kyle Korver.
Paul George said he will start on Kyle Korver: "It’s a challenge. He stays active, even cutting to the basket not just coming off of 3s."— Scott Agness (@ScottAgness) April 19, 2014
Atlanta worked out at the University of Indianapolis this morning and things were business as usual for the Hawks who will go with their familiar starting lineup of Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Pero Antic. Mike Budenholzer talked with the media following shootaround and said the team wouldn't deviate from their game plan. Essentially the Hawks want to spread the floor against all of their opponents offensively and that is the goal again tonight against the Pacers.
