The Hawks may have fallen just short in their quest to go up 3-1 in the series against the Indiana Pacers Saturday, but Atlanta fans had some fun “Pounding The Pacer” outside Philips Arena before the game.

As you may have heard or seen, the team bought a 1976 AMC Pacer and let fans, for a small donation, take a swing at it.  All of the money raised benefited the Atlanta Hawks Foundation, and hundreds of fans showed up early to take their cracks.  Among them were CEO Steve Koonin, “Voice of the Hawks” Steve Holman, PA announcer Ryan Cameron, Harry The Hawk and several Hawks cheerleaders.

We’ve also put together a sweet time lapse, which you can watch above.
