Mike Budenholzer: 'We can all be proud despite defeat'

Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer says that everyone involved with the team should be proud of their postseason performance, despite going out to the Indiana Pacers.

Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has said that everyone involved with the team should be proud of their post-season performance, despite being eliminated by the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.

The Hawks fell to a 4-3 series defeat as they lost 90-82 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, courtesy of a standout showing from Paul George.

"It goes without saying it's a tough loss but the way our group competed and the way they carried themselves in this series is something the coaches, players and organization can be very proud of," Budenholzer stated after the game.

The Pacers will now contest a semi-final battle with the Washington Wizards, which begins in Indianapolis on Monday.
