No-name Hawks getting it done vs top-seeded Pacers

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Quick, name the starting lineup for the Atlanta Hawks.

Stumped? You're not alone.

Despite a lack of recognizable players beyond All-Star forward Paul Millsap, talented young point guard Jeff Teague and perhaps 3-point specialist Kyle Korver, the Hawks have shown just how far hard work, intelligence and a steadfast belief in their system can carry a team.

Eighth-seeded Atlanta has a 3-2 lead against the top-seeded Indiana Pacers and can complete a stunning upset by winning at home Thursday night.

The Hawks finished 18 games behind Indiana during the regular season but have thoroughly controlled the postseason series, building double-digit leads in all five games. Atlanta is coming off an especially impressive performance in Game 5, building a 30-point lead on the road and holding on for a 107-97 triumph.
