The common trend in this series has been that the home team always wins, and the Atlanta Hawks will be hoping to continue along that path as they look to avoid elimination against the Indiana Pacers.
Neither team has been able to clinch a victory on the road thus far, with both looking commanding on home court and showing no signs of slipping up. The Pacers have a dismal record in Atlanta, not winning there since 2006 but will be hopeful of building on a strong Game 5 performance to wrap the series up.
Hawks coach Larry Drew sent his players home early on Thursday, stating that they are both physically and mentally fatigued, and therefore wanted them to go away and regroup and rest ahead of a vital game.
Indiana have the advantage of not requiring a win on the road, as Game 7, if necessary, will take place back in Indianapolis. However, coach Frank Vogel will want to see signs of maturity in his team, and evidence that they are capable of winning in hostile environments as they will undoubtedly have to if they progress.
Atlanta will need to regain their composure for this game, with the likes of Josh Smith and Jeff Teague picking up technicals in the last outing. Vogel switched up his rotation to deny the Hawks good looks on their offense, now it is up to Atlanta to come up with the answers.
