SL-The Hawks were hoping to tie up the season series against the Jazz but fell short. Post game with Coach Bud who in the mist of calm expressed his undying wish for his boys to play a full 4 qtrs. Most of the guys, outside of Dennis Schroder, struggled.
Schroder led the Hawks with 21 points. Tim Hardaway Jr who has worked his way up to a starting position had 14. While Paul Millsap chipped in 14 as well. The Jazz on other hand shot 61% from the floor.
With Gordon Hayward outscoring all players with 30. Defensively, the Hawks gave up way too many points, couple that with a slow start and not going big down low and that’s what’s happens. The Jazz also smashed the boards with 44 over Atlanta’s 30. Final Score 120-95.
The Hawks will attempt to regroup against the Nuggets Wednesday while the Jazz will visit the Pelicans.
