INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks say they will bring a new attitude and grittier approach to Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series against Indiana.
After spending two days hearing coach Larry Drew critique their inability to play through calls and contact, the Hawks believe they can match the Pacers' physical style.
If they can, the Hawks may head home for Games 3 and 4 with that critical split on the road. If not, the Pacers are likely to visit Atlanta -- where they've lost 11 straight games -- with their first 2-0 series lead since the 2004 Eastern Conference semifinals.
Drew may go with a bigger lineup Wednesday night, and the Pacers insist they're ready to adapt.
