And look what happened. They made the ECF.
Please, people were saying we would lose to the Wizards also because we struggled with the Hawks. Then people were saying we would lose to Miami because we struggled with the Wiz, and we did.
The Pacers struggled with the Hawks and they showed they weren't as good as the first half of the season. Its nothing to get offended over, it is what is. The Pacers played like sh*t the 2nd half of the season and it showed in the playoffs.
The Hawks haven't played as bad as the Pacers did in the 2nd half of the season, but they haven't been that great down the stretch either. Its no surprise they struggled tonight, I agree the first game wasn't as close as the score was but this one was. And Williams had a gimme jumper. I could see the Nets winning the next game and MAYBE the 4th game and then ATL winning in 6 because they are the better team.
