Paul George was spectacular down the stretch, but missed two free throws that allowed the Hawks an opportunity to tie the game on the final possession.

The Hawks were given a second chance as Paul George missed two free throws with seven seconds remaining, but Atlanta couldn't capitalize on the final play and the Pacers ground out a win, 91-88.
