    Helps us that Horford is out.

    Have to stop Teague and contain Milsap and we'll be good.

    I'd love for us to be the team that ends Korver's 3 point streak.

    Today is the day where PG should bounce back from his slump.

    I have to admit, I was thinking about this today as well.

    I really hope that PG and whomever else guards Korver are aware of that record and specifically make an effort to try to contain him.

    Would be really great to break that streak.

    Be hard to stop a guy cold that looks like a good chunk of the offense that they have left.
    If Hawk's have any chance Korver's gotta be shooting.

    Can't see him miss all of them.
    Might be easier to hold them under seventy, or beat them by thirty.

    Hopefully PG bounces back. 30+ points from PG is my prediction

    Indiana Pacers ‏@Pacers 3m
    BREAKING: Lance Stephenson has a right knee contusion and is questionable for tonight's game at Atlanta.
    Granger to get his first start?
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    This game is a bit scary from a schedule standpoint...4th in 5 nites and second of a back-to-back...and we know we have been less than stellar in those situations...u then factor in our inability to win in Atlanta in the last few years and well....just a bit scary...lets hope the talent difference is enough to persevere and get the win...

    Atlanta is the only East team that we have not beat.

    Oh well, we got Danny to fill in! Butler played well in his short stint of actually getting minutes as well

    They aren't the same Atlanta of the past....

    No JSmith, Horford, or Johnson.

    Different team or not...we havent won a regular season game there since 2006...4th game in 5 nites certainly and how we have performed on the second night of back to backs doesnt exactly cause one to be overly optimistic....or did you miss the cleveland game sunday night?

    Didn't Lance play in the closing minutes of last night's game? Looked fine to me.

    I think Lance will play, but with our depth it would be easy to just let him heal and rest if he wants to.

    Lance got a pretty solid knock on his knee during last night's game.

    I am not at all surprised to hear that he ended up having it swell/bruise after the game.

    Hope he is ok.
