Pacers Even Series With Hawks at 2-2

Never mind the criticisms, the Indiana Pacers are now tied with the Atlanta Hawks at 2-2 in their best-of-seven series in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs.
After much talk-- and debate-- how the Pacers could be the worst No.1 seed in the history of the NBA, Indiana has regained some form that brought them to the East Finals during last season's playoff run.
Paul George (24 points) and David West (18 points) hit crucial three-pointers down the stretch to give the Indiana the close 91-88 victory in Game 4 and more importantly get back the homecourt advantage from the hard-fighting Hawks.
George Hill had 15 points and 5 assists for the Pacers squad which limited Atlanta's field goal shooting to just 35.7 per cent (30/84 FG).
Paul Millsap led the losing side with 29 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.
