The Indiana Pacers realize their recent numbers look ugly.
Five losses in six games. Deficits of 20 or more points in all six. A blown shot at the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
But they also believe they can turn things around with a best-of-seven playoff series against Atlanta set to open Sunday.
Indiana's top players -- Paul George, George Hill, Roy Hibbert and David West -- haven't played since last Sunday's loss at New York, giving them time to rest and recover. And the Pacers believe that will be enough to get things back on track.
