Atlanta, Ga -- The Atlanta Hawks will try to take an improbable 2-1 series lead tonight when the team hosts the top seeded Indiana Pacers at Philips Arena. The Hawks were able to win game 1 in Indianapolis and while the final score didn't look like it, game 2 was competitive most of the way. The key according to the players we spoke with today is a fast start in the 3rd quarter. We'll have pre game coverage live from Philips Arena on 11 alive news at 6 and post game coverage tonight at 11.
