The Atlanta Hawks won their first overtime game since the March 18th 2014 as they outlasted the New York Knicks in overtime, 102-98.

An ugly game but Hawks get it done… eventually

While this was a closely contested and chippy game (no team led by more than eight points while four technical fouls and two flagrant fouls were issued) it was certainly not a pretty game. Both teams shot below 40% (37% for the Knicks, 36% for Atlanta) and both shot 7-of-27 from behind the arc. But those numbers don’t do this game justice, it was ugly to watch.

Let’s look at the upcoming schedule over the next two weeks and we’ll chat more then.

The Atlanta Hawks dropped their second game in a row, succumbing to a 104-94 loss at the hands of the New York Knicks at MSG. Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 19 points while Dwight Howard scored 18 points and pulled down 18 boards.

‘Mix and match’ uni’s return

Oh hey, the Hawks are doing this again: mixing and matching their road and alternate jerseys on road games on Sunday’s. How do you feel about these? Personally, I don’t mind this variation. It’s the black jersey with the red shorts that is a little too much for me…
