Indiana Pacers Game Five – Soap opera season continues tonight against Hawks
April 28, 2014

by Kent Sterling Expectations are a huge factor in building a narrative for a seven-game playoff series.  Last year, the Indiana Pacers won 49 games, were the third seed, and faced a Game Five against the Atlanta Hawks with the series tied 2-2.  This year, while in the same situation against a different Hawks team, […]
