INDIANA PACERS (28-6) AT ATLANTA HAWKS (18-17), 7:30 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - Before the Indiana Pacers return to the comfy confines of home, they will visit to the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday at Philips Arena.
The Eastern Conference-leading Pacers will begin a four-game homestand Friday versus Washington, Sacramento, New York and the Los Angeles Clippers, but hope to take care of business in Atlanta.
Indiana has won three in a row and eight of its last nine games, and improved to 28-6 with Tuesday's 86-79 triumph versus Toronto. Roy Hibbert led the way with 22 points, eight rebounds and three blocks, Lance Stephenson ended with 13 points and 10 boards and Danny Granger netted 13 points as well.
Paul George was limited to 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting for the Pacers, who shot 42.7 percent for the game and made only 1-of-11 3-pointers. They held the Raptors to 37 percent shooting and 5-of-19 from beyond the arc.
