05:08 PM ET 04.22 | George Hill was clearly limping. The Indiana Pacers guard has been battling a hip injury for a while now, but while a first-quarter collision with Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague caused him to grimace, excuse him a bit. After all, the pain didn't affect his performance in a blowout of the Hawks to open the first round of the playoffs. Hill set the tone by hitting all five of his first-quarter shots and finishing with 18 points on 7-for-10 shooting on Sunday. Don't expect Hill's pain to subside, but don't expect Hill to worry about it too much. "If it happens, it happens; if it hurts, it hurts," Hill said. "The way I deal with it is just thinking about the next play. I treat it as an out-of-sight, out-of-mind sort of thing."
