The Indiana Pacers have advanced to the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals after beating the Atlanta Hawks 81-73 Friday night.

David West and George Hill led the team with 21 points each.  Roy Hibbert contributed with a double-double, scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds.

"I'm so proud of this team," Hibbert said after the game.  "It shows a lot of resolve to win this game.  We have a lot more work to do, but we're going to enjoy this."

The Pacers took the first round best-of-seven series four games to two.  The win snapped a 13-game losing streak for the Pacers, who hadn't won a game in Atlanta since 2006.  

The team will now face the New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden.
