Jeff Teague may not be one of the best point guards in the NBA, but he’s a pretty darn good one.

The Atlanta Hawks floor general is fast as lightning and he’s got the handles to match. Something Evan Turner found that out first hand when he was bamboozled by a sweet step back dribble during the 101-93 loss at the Bankers Field House.

To make things worse, Teague stopped and stared at Turner after he damn near shredded his ankles, then hit a three pointer right in his face. Pushing the Hawks’ lead to nine points midway through the third quarter.

Although to be fair to the Pacers’ swingman, he wasn’t the only one who got abused by the fifth year man as George Hill had no answer for him either - particularly in the third period when he scored 14 of his Playoff career high 28 points. He blew the game wide open during the 12 minute stretch as Atlanta’s lead reached 20 at one point.

We’ll have to wait and see what adjustments Indiana makes in order to prevent a repeat of Game 1 and climb out of the 1-0 hole they find themselves in after the opening game of the first round series.

So will Jeff Teague dominate again? Have your say below...
