The Indiana Pacers took the Atlanta Hawks for a losing ride by beating them 101-85 Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

At first, it seemed that Indiana could not contain Jeff Teague and Paul Milsap. Teague, with his speed, constantly got to the basket for easy layups finishing the game with 14 points while Paul Milsap torched Indiana for 19 points.

Before Paul George and George Hill got their game going, the Pacers rode on the hot shooting of Luis Scola's, who scored 20 points shooting 9 of 14 from the floor. Paul George finally got into the groove and took over the game by hitting 9 of 16 shots, making five from the three point mark giving him a total of 27 points for the night. George Hill helped the scoring by adding 15 points.
