Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill has been playing through
a nagging hip injury since March, but he told reporters – including Zak Keefer
of The Indianapolis Star – that he’s trying to block out the pain as his team
prepares for Game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks.
“If you think about it, your mind starts playing tricks on you,” Hill said after Sunday’s 107-90 Game 1 win over Atlanta. “So when I go out there, I just try and think I’m at 100 percent. I try and block it all out.”
