Beaten up and blown out in the first two games of their series against the Indiana Pacers, the Hawks are pondering lineup changes heading into Game 3 Saturday night. Coach Larry Drew says he's looking for improvement at both ends of the court, but it's clear that he's mainly concerned about getting tougher defensively.
The Pacers have a huge size advantage, and they took full advantage of it while winning twice at home by an average of 16 points. Atlanta doesn't have a lot of options after rugged center Zaza Pachulia went down with a season-ending Achilles injury. But Drew might have to go with little-used 7-footer Johan Petro, which would allow Al Horford to play power forward.
