Today on the show:

The Hawks currently have the home court advantage and the Pacers need to win a game in ATL to put the pressure back on the Hawks. 

- Sekou also talked about the Hawks ability to go into Indianapolis and win one game out of the first two. The guys asked him if he was surprised the Hawks have played so well in the first two games against the Pacers.
