Nets outlast Hawks in high scoring affair, 145-141


The #Atlanta #Hawks battled the #Brooklyn #Nets on #Wednesday evening in the first of two matchups between the teams over the next three days. #Danilo #Gallinari returned to the lineup, making he, #Clint #Capela and #Rajon #Rondo all available for #Atlanta for the first time in the regular season.

The #Nets ultimately outlasted the #Hawks 145-141 in what was, predictably, a high scoring game. #Atlanta started the game on 15-6 run, racing out to a lead. The offense was again clicking on all cylinders early, with the #Hawks scoring 41 points in the opening period.

The #Nets were however able to keep pace, clawing back into the contest. #Atlanta led 41-38 heading to the second quarter.

The #Hawks shot just 9-for-26 in the second period after a scorching first quarter, but still held the lead at the break. #Atlanta and #Brooklyn both shot 9-for-21 from three in what turned out to be a fast-paced first half. #Bogdan #Bogdanovic was rolling for #Atlanta from deep throughout the night.

#On the injury front, #Gallinari did leave the game with an ankle injury in the second quarter and did not return.

#John #Collins led the way for #Atlanta with 16 points and six rebounds through two quarters, as the #Hawks led 68-67 at halftime,

The third quarter was also fast-paced and closely contested, with the #Hawks outscoring #Brooklyn 36-35 in the period. #Collins led all scorers with 22 points through three quarters, with #Young not far behind with 20 points to go along with nine assists.

#After letting the lead slip for a moment, a 9-1 run by the #Hawks late in the third put them up 103-95 but the #Nets were able to respond with a run of their own to close the quarter, and trailed just 104-102 heading to the final period.

The fourth quarter was much of the same out of the gate, plenty of points and not so much defense. #With just under seven minutes to play, the two teams were tied at 120 points a piece. #Kyrie #Irving, who was just 3-for-16 to start play, caught fire in the fourth and hit a three to put the #Nets up 130-126 with under five minutes to play.

The #Nets were able to maintain the slim lead for the remainder, squeaking out the 145-141 win in the final minutes. The #Hawks made it close late with a three from #De’#Andre #Hunter, cutting it to 141-139 with 6.3 seconds remaining, but were unable to get any closer after a pair of free throws by #Durant.
