Paul George has said that the Indiana Pacers' game against the Atlanta Hawks was "winnable".

The Pacers have the best record in the NBA this season, but got off to a slow start in last night's meeting at the Philips Arena, giving Atlanta the win.

The small forward told reporters: "This is definitely a winnable game for us, but it's a tough stretch, four out of five, travel situations that we had. It's not an excuse, but it's nothing to be down about at this point.

"Down 12 points to start the game off, you give a team like this all the confidence in the world, them playing at home. They just played with confidence at that point. I felt like that's where we lost the game."

The Pacers host the Washington Wizards tomorrow.
