ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew says "it's a little bit mind-boggling" that his team didn't come out with more intensity in Game 1 of the playoff series against Indiana.
The Pacers romped to a 107-90 victory, and Drew said Monday that it's clear why: "They physically manhandled us."
Drew says the Hawks looked as though they were playing just another regular-season game, which won't do at this time of year. The coach says he couldn't believe his eyes when watching film of the Indiana rout. The Pacers outrebounded Atlanta 48-32 and went to the free-throw line 34 times, compared to 14 for the Hawks.
Drew is pondering a possible lineup change to get more physical with the Pacers. Game 2 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night in Indianapolis.
