What do Jermaine O’Neal, Stephen Jackson, Jamaal Tinsley and Al Harrington have to do with today’s Indiana Pacers?

They were all part of the organization the last time the team beat the Hawks in Atlanta.

Dec. 22, 2006; 12 games ago.

The Pacers hope to put an end to their 11-game losing streak in Atlanta in Game 3 of their playoff series on Saturday. A win not only would end the losing streak but would give the Pacers a commanding 3-0 lead in their best-of-seven series.

“I’m not really going to talk about it at all,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “A lot of these guys only experienced two of (the losses). A few more of them experienced four of them. Most of them didn’t experience any of them.”

Danny Granger, who was in his in second season, is the only Pacer holdover from the 2006-07 team. Center Roy Hibbert is 0-9 there.

The Pacers blew a double-digit second-half lead to the Hawks in their first loss there this season and dropped a nine-point decision in their other game.

The Pacers are a different team than the one that made those trips to Atlanta the first two months of the season. Theyhave won the first two games of this series by an average of 16 points.

“I think we’re playing with a great deal of confidence,” Vogel said. “I don’t put a lot of credence into regular-season games, the whole series match up or what they did in their building. The playoffs are a completely different ball game.”
