Default Hawks lose Game 7 to Pacers, are eliminated in first round

Indiana completely flipped the script on Atlanta. Instead of chasing the Hawks, the Pacers pulled away. Instead of yielding to the Hawks' 3-point shooters, the Pacers took advantage of their size by dominating the glass and creating openings for perimeter shooters. And instead of trying to hide Hibbert, the All-Star center who had failed to score in Games 5 or 6, the All-Star center was his old imposing self.

The Pacers finished with a 55-38 rebounding edge and with Hibbert clogging the way, the Hawks were forced to rely primarily on 3-pointers. Atlanta wound up just 11 of 44 from beyond the arc, most coming as it tried to dig out of a double-digit deficit.

It didn't take Indiana long to demonstrate why this game would be different from the first six.

After the Hawks went on a 7-0 run to take a 23-17 lead late in the first quarter, Indiana answered with its own 7-0 run to make it 24-23 entering the second.

Default Re: Hawks lose Game 7 to Pacers, are eliminated in first round

The Hawks had their second straight poor shooting game. They finished with a 30.4 percentage (28 of 92), including 25 percent (11 of 44) from 3-point range.

In the end the Hawks missed (64) nearly as many shots at the Pacers took (70).

“I don’t know if it was wear and tear or what,” DeMarre Carroll said. “We just couldn’t knock down shots. We had open looks. A lot of guys had open looks. We just couldn’t knock down shots.”

Millsap finished with 15 points on 6 of 21 shooting. He had only two points at halftime. He did pull down 17 rebounds. Carroll was 1 of 7 for two points. Pero Antic was 0 of 5 for zero points. Mike Scott finished with 15 points off the bench but he was 5 of 14 from the field, including 3 of 10 from 3-point range.
