The Atlanta Hawks are pulling out all the stops for Game 6.
The Hawks, who could complete a historic upset if they pull off a Game 6 win against the Indiana Pacers, are unveiling a revamped version of their classic “Pac-Man” logo at Phillips Arena on Thursday night. Check out the logo below, courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The cool logo is a tribute to the original “Pac-Man” logo that was used by the Hawks during the Dominique Wilkins era in the 1980s.
The present-day Hawks have the chance to make some history of their own Thursday night if they can bounce the top-seeded Pacers from the first round of the NBA playoffs with a win. Atlanta currently holds a 3-2 series lead after a decisive 107-97 victory in Indiana in Game 5 on Monday night.
Atlanta has made the playoffs in each of the last six seasons but has failed to make it past the second round each time. The fans in attendance will be more than glad to cheer them on, as each fan will receive a t-shirt with the retro logo printed on the front.
