Johan Petro Will Start Game 4 vs Pacers

Atlanta Hawks 7-foot center Johan Petro made it back in time to Atlanta for Game 4 and will start against the Indiana Paces Monday after missing practice Sunday to be with his wife for the birth of their child.

It was unknown earlier if Petro would make it back to Atlanta in time for the game. Fortunately, he did. The owners sent a private jet to pick him up after his son was born this afternoon, according to a source.

Hawks head coach Larry Drew has decided to use the same “big” lineup that worked so well in Game 3, as Petro will make his second straight start in the playoffs at center, along with Jeff Teague, Devin Harris, Josh Smith and Al Horford.
