This #Pacers collapse is such a mystery. The same starting five nearly made NBA Finals. Now, not sure it could beat the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

What now for this mysterious team? | THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE INDIANA PACERS nba.com/pacers/news/pa… via @Pacers

Conrad Brunner

Know little about soccer but obvious @IndyEleven has incredible fan base. Drawing me to sport.

Rasual Butler

Tough loss tonight! Hawks played well and we need to play better and we will! Bounce back game Tuesday… instagram.com/p/m_64LbgdS_/

Conrad Brunner

After sitting through #pacers barfketball, watching Indy 11 replay and suddenly soccer not as boring.

Scott Agness

This week, where literally nothing went right, can’t end soon enough……

Mark Montieth

Just for the record, contrary to some retired scribes, West didn't say there's no communication among players. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Scott Agness

Hawks take Game 1, behind Teague (28pts), and Millsap (25). Pacers’ PFs combine for 10pts on 4-of-16 shooting on.nba.com/1jUY85f

Pacers vs. Hawks postgame live chat indy.st/1lmztG9 via @indystar

Candace Buckner

The return of the post-game powwows. After the loss, several #Pacers once again gathered together to discuss matters. Rinse and repeat.

Michael Pointer

I will be hosting a #Pacers postgame chat. Heading down to the media room now. Will post link soon.

Mark Montieth

Jeff Teague might be second-best player to come out of Pike HS. You guys didn't see me play, so how do you know if I'm wrong or not?

Mark Montieth

Gonna be the most interesting postgame press conference of the season ... to be followed by the most interesting game on Tuesday. #Pacers

Scott Agness

Hawks take Game 1, 101-93. Jeff Teague with a game-high 28pts. Paul George had 24. Pacers have two days to figure it out.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers drop their playoffs home opener. Boos rain down at the conclusion of the 101-93 loss. #BigTroubleinLittleIndy

Mark Montieth

Gonna be interesting on Tuesday to see what Vogel comes up with. New starting lineup? Different rotation? Drastic circumstance calls for...

Candace Buckner

Roy's not even trying

Conrad Brunner

Korver just blocked Hibbert again.

Candace Buckner

#Hawks will have beaten the "best" team in the East twice on its home floor within the last two weeks. #Pacers in trouble

Candace Buckner

Looks of disgust and bewilderment on faces of the #Pacers coming out of that timeout. But par for course, body language been awful

Michael Pointer

Mayor Ballard just called Mr. Simon. He wants the city's subsidy back. #pacers

Conrad Brunner

Any NBA media representative that casts a ballot for Hibbert as DPOY should have his/her credentials revoked in perpetuity.

Candace Buckner

Hibbert with back to back baskets. #Pacers down 94-78

Michael Pointer

Hibbert finally back in with 5:54 left. He's had a horrible night, but he's not alone. #pacers

Michael Pointer

#indyeleven drew 10,421 tonight. Guessing their fans are much happier, too.

Conrad Brunner

The Bank is emptying at a fairly rapid clip now. Looks like if you want to beat traffic, you should stay till the end.

Candace Buckner

You gotta be kidding me. Now there's a stream starting to the exits… with 5:54 remaining… in a playoff game.

Michael Pointer

I hesitate to use the word embarrassing on any level of sports. But think it sums up #Pacers performance to this point.

Mark Montieth

Boos mounting in Bankers Life. Never seen anything like this in a home playoff game that I recall.

Candace Buckner

Can't remember the last time a home team was booed in Game 1 of the playoffs.

Scott Agness

Down 18, Vogel brings Watson in for Mahinmi. Small ball it is.

Mark Montieth

Pacers going small. Watson for Mahinmi.

Candace Buckner

Before, Vogel said that 2 days off only would help the loser of Game 1 in regards to making adjustments. Well…#Pacers will need these 2 days

Conrad Brunner

Note to #Pacers: When you're supposed to be "All-in," it's a really, really bad idea to fold.

Candace Buckner

Some very bad possessions continuing: PG goes inside because ya know, nobody else is moving. Then D West blows wide open J (no pass poss)

Conrad Brunner

See what happens when I'm actually optimistic at halftime? #neveragain

Mark Montieth

Atlanta ranked 28th in the NBA in rebounding during the season. But it's outrebounding the Pacers 36-31.

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers shot 5-19 with 7 TOs in 3Q. But, hey, they outrebounded #Hawks 13-10, so there's that.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers will need to recover from an 80-66 deficit if it hopes to win Game 1 on its home floor.

Candace Buckner

Goes without saying, but the #Hawks are not scared of the #Pacers - it's obvious the fragile team is the one with the No. 1 seed by its name

Scott Agness

Hawks outscored the Pacers by 14 points in the third, and are on top, 80-66. Indy’s Jeff Teague with 14 of his 24 in the 3Q.

Candace Buckner

Stop me if you've heard this one before - but #Pacers can't close out defensive possession with a rebound. Hawks get three chances

Scott Agness

Now Rasual Butler, the oldest member of the team, with his arm around Stephenson trying to provide support. Great teammate Butler is.

Conrad Brunner

Hard to believe an offensive set that has 4 players standing and one player running the baseline didn't produce a shot.

Scott Agness

Andrew Bynum in the ear of Roy Hibbert on the bench, trying to get him going and pointing specific things out.

Candace Buckner

With 3:12 remaining, the #Pacers far a 75-62 deficit. Haven't been the best come-from-behind team so yes, this is trouble time

Scott Agness

Vogel on Teague (22pts): “The whole defensive game plan is keeping him out of the paint. It’s the toughest challenge we’re going to have.”

Mark Montieth

This looks like a game where Vogel might want to get a technical foul.

Conrad Brunner

Wow. It's unraveling quickly and comprehensively. #Hawks on 14-0 run, lead #Pacers by 16.

Scott Agness

Paul George (left quad contusion) at the scorer’s table to check back in.

Conrad Brunner

Nine straight points by one of the point guards Bird ignored to draft Hansbrough, and Hawks lead #Pacers 69-58.

Mark Montieth

George has left quad contusion, will return

Scott Agness

Pacers outscored 19-8 in the third; the last nine coming from the Hawks, who lead 69-58. 5:05 3Q.

Michael Pointer

The boo-birds are out. Teague hits a driving layup to give Atlanta a 69-58 lead with 5:05 left in third. #Pacers

Conrad Brunner

PG has left quad contusion, will return.

Michael Pointer

Jeff Teague just absolutely schooled Turner. Hawks lead 67-58. #Pacers

Conrad Brunner

And, right after PG leaves, West picks up fourth foul.

Scott Agness

Now Paul George is back in the locker room with asst. trainer Carl Eaton.

Conrad Brunner

Something is ailing PG. Has walked over to trainer twice, now heads to locker room as Turner checks in.

Michael Pointer

I wonder if West did that in part to fire the #Pacers up. . .Shove by Antic wasn't overly physical.

Scott Agness

Paul George laying on the baseline having his left knee rubbed down by Pacers trainer Josh Corbeil.

Conrad Brunner

Antic and West square off after the Macedonian popped him on a screen. #pacers #hawks

Michael Pointer

Antic and West had to be separated. Are there Macedonian curse words?

Mark Montieth

I predict a double technical.

Mark Montieth

This just isn't going to be a series for Hibbert. Bad matchups. But his confidence is bad enough already. You sit him, and then what?

Michael Pointer

Atlanta opens half with 8-0 run to take 58-50 lead with 9:35 left in third. Vogel calls timeout. #Pacers

Michael Pointer

Hibbert misses two free throws. Getting sense this crowd expects something bad to happen every time he touches the ball. #pacers

Conrad Brunner

#Pacers 9-0 on fast-break pts, 20-12 in paint. Clean up the D board, tighten up on Teague and things could work out for home team.

Michael Pointer

Kudos to everyone being honored by the Indiana Sports Writers and Broadcasters tonight. Wish I could be there. Duty called.

Mark Montieth

Hard to believe how many NBA players fail to go up straight on their shot -- even free throws! Drifting, falling back ... crazy.

Michael Pointer

#Pacers had a good second quarter, but turn it over and Korver puts back Teague's miss at buzzer. Atlanta 50, Indiana 50, half.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers and #Hawks tied at halftime, 50-50

Candace Buckner

Paul George was "slaving for FTs" at the end of the regular season, now he's getting rewarded with 8 and counting here in Game 1

Conrad Brunner

Having had a layup blocked by Korver, Hibbert decides to become Korver and launches a 3.

Candace Buckner

Hibbert corner 3 turns out just as you would imagine it to

Candace Buckner

Confirmed: clear path foul for the #Pacers. Paul George gets 2 FTS and Indy retains possession with 2:01 remaining

Candace Buckner

Paul George active on the defensive end with three steals already. His last one leads to a clear-path call

Mark Montieth

I wonder if the referees will want to review my story tonight.

Michael Pointer

Others have noted, but Hibbert has got to go up stronger with that ball, right?? #Pacers

Conrad Brunner

Yes, Kyle Korver just blocked Roy Hibbert. Oh the humanity. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

George Hill took a moment to get off the floor, but walks back to the timeout huddle on his own accord.

Michael Pointer

George Hill slow to get up after running into Antic while driving to the basket. Helped up and looks OK. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

G. Hill should've went up with that. He was right at the rim.

Candace Buckner

Before checking in, G. Hill tells Stephenson to not worry about the fouls. Just play. Lance is checking back in with 2 personal fouls

Michael Pointer

Scola has struggled, but everyone else off the bench -- Turner, Mahinmi, Watson -- all been effective. #Pacers

Candace Buckner

I say "quietly" about Turner's start because Lance's six straight points took all the shine.

Candace Buckner

PG getting to the rim and FINISHING. Evan Turner quietly having a solid 3 for 3 start. #Pacers lead 37-36

Michael Pointer

George layin gives #Pacers 37-36 lead with 6:04 left in second quarter.

Michael Pointer

Luis Scola having a tough night from the floor. David West checking back in.
