The Indiana Pacers are 2-1 down in this opening round playoff series, and coach Frank Vogel may be forced into tinkering with his line-up against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
Vogel has hinted at the possibility of center Roy Hibbert dropping to the bench having had some success with a smaller unit, but the top seeds are now 2-1 down in the best-of-seven series and can ill-afford another slip-up.
Hibbert has only scored 18 points in three games thus far on 7-of-25 shooting, and his confidence appears to be dropping as he also struggled to have any meaningful influence on the defensive end during the loss in Game 3.
Pero Antic and Paul Millsap have been effective with their outside shooting to compliment point guard Jeff Teague who has attacked the lanes and navigated his way to the basket to do real damage.
As a result, the eighth seeds heading into the post-season have laid the foundations to spring a real surprise in the opening round, but they will be fully aware that they must protect their home court one more time in order to pile further pressure on their rivals.
The Pacers appeared to have found some sort of confidence in Game 2 as Paul George led their charge to get on the board and suggest that they would be capable of finding their rhythm and grinding out a win.
However, they took another step backwards last time out and with the likes of George Hill also struggling, it leaves Vogel with a few things to think about.
The Pacers coach has called upon his players to show more “passion, energy, heart and guts”, but it will need that and more effective scoring in order to deny the Hawks a 3-1 lead in this series.
