Lance Stephenson Trips Pero Antic; Stumbling Pacers Force Game 7 (Video)

The top-seeded Indiana Pacers have struggled in their first-round NBA playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers were able to hold on and force a Game 7 with a 95-88 victory Thursday night, but that didn’t come without some drama.

During the second quarter, the Pacers’ Lance Stephenson took out the Hawks’ Pero Antic with a trip. It’s hard to tell if it was intentional, but it’s not a good look for the Pacers if it was.

Things got even more heated later in the game when a fight broke out between Indiana’s George Hill and Atlanta’s Mike Scott. This should make for an interesting Game 7.
