When the Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers first-round schedule was released, only the first five games of the series had set start times while the final two games were to be determined later, if necessary.
Now that there will definitely be a sixth game, the start time for Thursday’s contest in Atlanta has been set for 7:00 PM ET.
The eight-seeded Hawks lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and are on the cusp of eliminating the heavily favored top-seeded Pacers.
Atlanta can clinch the series upset tonight in Game 6 in front of their home crowd.
In the event the Pacers win Game 6 to even the series at 3-3, the seventh and final game of the series will be played Saturday, May 3 at Indiana. As of right now, there is no scheduled start time for Game 7. A tip-off time is to be determined following the outcome of Game 6, if necessary.
