The Atlanta Hawks will try to halt a three-game skid on Wednesday when they take on the Indiana Pacers to close out a four-game home stand. Since returning home from a 4-1 road trip, the Hawks have looked bad in losses to Memphis, Philadelphia and Phoenix trailing by at least 20 points in each.
To snap out of the funk, Hawks coach Larry Drew told the AJC on Tuesday that he is contemplating a lineup changein an effort to bring more energy onto the court.
"That is always a possibility," Drew said. "It's not just losing the three games, it's the way we are playing. It's the energy. It's the urgency. It's the combination of players who are out on the floor, starters versus guys who come off the bench. I've got to try to find that combination. I've got to find whatever it's going to take in order for us to get that swagger back."
Atlanta dropped its previous meeting with the Indiana Pacers 96-84 back on January 11. Al Horford was injured early in that game and Atlanta has gone 9-5 without the former All-Star in the lineup.
