ATLANTA (AP) — Paul George and David West hit key 3-pointers down the stretch, and the top-seeded Indiana Pacers held off the Atlanta Hawks 91-88 Saturday to even the opening-round series at two wins apiece.

In a game they had to have, the Pacers finally showed some grit. George put the Pacers ahead 86-85 with a jumper beyond the arc, and West hit another trey with 1:33 remaining.

Atlanta had a chance after Kyle Korver was fouled in the corner and knocked down three free throws. But George pulled down an offensive rebound to set up George Hill’s driving shot with 56 seconds left.

Pero Antic missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would’ve forced overtime.

Game 5 is Monday in Indianapolis.

George scored 24 points. Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 29.
