Default 2013 First Round: Hawks at Pacers, Game 1 thread

When it comes to the NBA playoffs, matchups matter.

Atlanta likes to run. Indiana gets physical. Paul George will try to attack. Kyle Korver might be content to knock down 3-pointers.

Both teams know what's coming and have spent the last three days preparing to defend against their biggest weaknesses while exploiting their top advantages when the best-of-seven series opens Sunday in Indianapolis.

''When you look at us on paper from a matchup standpoint, we do give up size. Certain positions we give up athleticism,'' Hawks coach Larry Drew said Saturday. ''But we've been able to balance that with some of the other stuff that we do. I think with our guards, both Jeff (Teague) and Devin (Harris), they pose a problem because of their abilities in the open floor. We run a lot of pick-and-rolls, we've got bigs that can space it out and shoot it, so we balance it.''

Only watching this to see what the teams are like that Boston will play in the second round if they beat the Knicks.

Josh Smith just drained a three (and can do it occasionally), yet he shoots worse than Dwight Howard from the FT line. How?

Whoever wins in the Knicks-Celtics series will face Miami in the ECF.

Will Hibbert have over 15 points today, or will he be outplayed by a guy 5 inches shorter than him?
