Hawks looking for more stops against bigger Pacers

ATLANTA (AP) - The undersized Atlanta Hawks are making Indiana look like a high-scoring power.

The Pacers ranked 23rd in the NBA with fewer than 95 points per game in the regular season. Led by forward Paul George, Indiana has picked up the pace in the playoffs. The Pacers have averaged 110 points in winning the first two games of the first-round series.

Hawks coach Larry Drew said Thursday his team has struggled to match up with the bigger Pacers.

Drew says he's looking at possible lineup changes as the series shifts to Atlanta for Game 3 on Saturday night. Drew could start backup center Johan Petro in a bigger lineup with Al Horford moving to forward. Petro drew five fouls in about 14 minutes in Wednesday night's 113-98 loss.
