10 Memorable Moments From the Hawks vs. Pacers Series

The series didn’t end the way the Atlanta Hawks wanted it to, but there were many memorable moments along the way against the Pacers.  We put together 10 of our favorites:

10)  Korver’s Deep Three

The Pacers made a furious second half rally in Game 5 to cut what was a 30-point deficit down to just nine with four minutes remaining in the game.  Kyle Korver caught the ball on the right wing several feet behind the three-point line and launched it.  The make silenced the Indiana crowd and subdued the rally.  The Hawks eventually won by 10.  WATCH HERE

9)  Teague’s Crossover

One of many Hawks highlights in the series opener was Jeff Teague putting Evan Turner on skates during the third quarter of Game 1.  Teague drove right, then crossed over as he stepped back behind the three-point line to drill the shot during a 30-16 quarter for the Hawks.  WATCH HERE

8)  Korver Blocks Hibbert…Three Times

Korver had a terrific shooting series, but one of the big storylines of the first two games in Indiana was his blocks on Roy Hibbert.  The 6’7″ shooting guard blocked the 7’2″ center twice in Game 1 and again in Game 2, much to the displeasure of the Pacers fans. WATCH: #1 | #2 | #3

7)  Pero Antic vs. David West

An early scuffle between Pero Antic and David West in Game 1 turned out to be nothing more than just words, but it set the tone for the series that Atlanta wasn’t going to back down.  WATCH HERE

6)  Hawks Take Game 1

Though much of the talk afterwards focused on what was wrong with the Pacers, the Hawks certainly made a statement by throwing the first punch in a decisive Game 1 victory in which they led by as many as 20 in the fourth quarter.  Teague scored 28 points and forced Frank Vogel to use Paul George on him for the rest of the series.  HIGHLIGHTS

5)  Second Quarter of Game 5

The Game 5 win in Indiana may have been even sweeter than the Game 1 victory, but one thing we know for sure is that the second quarter of that fifth game was something special.  Mike Scott hit five three-pointers, including four on four consecutive possessions en route to a 17-point quarter.  Shelvin Mack came off the bench to contribute a team-high 20 points, 13 of which came during a second quarter that the Hawks won 41-19.

4)  Scott’s Thunderous Dunk

Down seven in the third quarter of Game 6 and in need of a jolt, Scott came off the bench and delivered in the third quarter, cutting down the lane for a thunderous dunk on Ian Mahinmi that whipped the crowd into a frenzy.  Most fans stood the rest of the game as the Hawks used that dunk to rally.  WATCH HERE

3)  Teague’s Amazing Three

Perhaps the shot of the NBA Playoffs so far, Teague effectively put Game 3 on ice with a wild shot clock buzzer beater late in the fourth quarter.  He threw it up with his momentum going the wrong way, then gave a little shrug afterwards.  WATCH HERE

2)  Pac Is Back

The Hawks gave fans a sneak peek of their new secondary logo prior to Game 6, an evolution of the old logo used for 23 years.  Every fan at the game got a shirt, and fans also have a chance to sign up to get merchandise when the logo is officially launched this summer. LEARN MORE HERE


1)  Fans

Unbelievable.  That’s just one of many words that can be used to sum up the fan support the Hawks got during their three home games.  Game 3 was great, Game 4 was crazy and Game 6 was downright insane, with fans standing for the final 18 minutes of the action. TEAGUE ON FANS | KORVER ON FANS
