Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague has revealed that he wanted to be aggressive as his side beat the Indiana Pacers 101-93 in their playoff encounter on Saturday night.

Teague was one of the form players at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, as he scored a playoff career-high 28 points to help earn the visitors a victory.

"I just wanted to be aggressive. We know they're a good defensive team with a lot of length," said Teague after the match.

"We just wanted to attack, stay aggressive and hit the open guy. We've got a lot of shot-makers. We know they are a long team who likes to clog the paint. But we want to stretch the floor against them."

The Hawks are 3-0 against the Pacers when they have Pero Antic at the center position.
