KEY GAME INFORMATION
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Pacers-Hawks Preview* ======================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Indiana (16-12) at Atlanta (17-9), 7:00 p.m. EDT

To keep their longest win streak of the season going, the Indiana Pacers will have to snap a lengthy skid.

The Pacers have lost in 10 consecutive visits to the Atlanta Hawks and will try to end that drought while seeking a fifth victory in a row Saturday night.

Indiana (17-12) hasn't won in Atlanta since Dec. 22, 2006, but just missed a chance for a victory at Philips Arena in the most recent matchup between the teams Nov. 7. The Pacers led by 14 points early in the fourth quarter but allowed the Hawks to go on an 18-0 run in an 89-86 defeat.

Kyle Korver scored eight of his 13 points during that spurt and Jeff Teague hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:04 remaining to give his team a third consecutive win in the series.

Indiana would appear to have a prime chance to end both of its losing streaks to Atlanta as it heads into this game having allowed an average of 84.8 points during its win streak and 85.0 during a stretch of seven victories in eight contests.

The Pacers, though, also blew a 16-point lead over Phoenix on Friday before coming away with a 97-91 home win. They allowed the Suns to shoot 46.3 percent after limiting their previous seven opponents to a combined 39.4 percent.

"It wasn't pretty in the second half, but we got the job done," coach Frank Vogel said. "We'd like blowouts, but we got the 'W' and found a way to win."

David West helped rescue his team by scoring eight of his 14 points in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead jumper with 3:17 to play, and George Hill had a team-best 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting. Hill and West each had 20 points in the loss in Atlanta in November.

Teague, who finished with 15 points in that game, scored a career-high 27 in the Hawks' third straight win Friday, 102-94 in Cleveland. He also hit a go-ahead shot for the second time in as many contests.

His 3-pointer with 2:46 left in the second overtime helped Atlanta (18-9) down Detroit 126-119 in its most recent home game Wednesday and he made an 18-foot jumper with 2:33 left Friday to spark a game-ending 9-0 run.

"I was just being aggressive," Teague said. "Coach (Larry Drew) pulled me aside after (a loss in Philadelphia on Dec. 21) and told me to bring more energy."

Atlanta is seeking a third straight victory at Philips Arena and its 10th in 13 games while Indiana will try to match its season-high three-game road win streak from Nov. 19-30.

Indiana, winners in seven of 10 away from home, is on its longest run since taking seven in a row April 9-19.

West will try to help extend that run while scoring at least 20 points in a third consecutive game against Atlanta. He's made 19 of 31 shots (61.3 percent) in the previous two matchups.
