While a Hawks-Pacers matchup may not look exciting on paper, these two teams have a lot to play for. The teams split the four games during the regular season, which makes for a competitive and even matchup. These teams have some of the most underrated players in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers’ Paul George and the Atlanta Hawks’ Jeff Teague. George had a stellar season with 17.4 points per game and 7.6 rebounds per game, while Teague set a career-high in points with more than 14.6 per game and assists with 7.2 per game. The Pacers have the size advantage with Roy Hibbert, who commands the post with 2.6 blocks and 8.3 rebounds per game. The Hawks counter with veteran Al Horford, who averaged 10.2 rebounds and 17.4 points per game, establishing himself as one of the best centers in the league.
