One of those small changes will likely be assigning the team’s best wing defender, Paul George, on Hawks point guard Jeff Teague. On Saturday, Teague exploited the one-on-one matchup with George Hill and the other Pacers did little to stop him as Teague scored a game-high 28 points.

“Yeah, that’s an option,” (coach Frank) Vogel said about George moving to Teague. “I’m sure we’ll see some of that this series — at some point.”

According to George, he and Vogel already spoke about the move and hinted that the change could come as early as Game 2.

“Yes, I would love to,” George said about defending Teague. “Just change it up, give him a different look and really battle him out there.”
