Hawks continue bombing from outside vs. Pacers

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

More postseason coverage: Playoff schedule, results | Court Vision Monday

The Atlanta Hawks aren't hiding what they're doing. Facing an Indiana team whose strength is interior defense has, in large part, abandoned any sort of interior offensive attack. After shooting 30 3-pointers in Game 1, the Hawks shot 16 in the first half vs. the Pacers in Game 2, and lead by four at the break.

Check out their shot distribution chart (this is where shots come from, not percentage of makes):

The Hawks took 42 percent of their shots from outside, 31.6 percent in the paint. That's nuts. They're just stretching the Pacers out constantly, and with the slow, lumbering lineups Pacers coach Vogel keeps deploying, it's working.

The Pacers are in serious trouble.
