The slumping Hawks continue to fight through a tough stretch of playoff-contending teams, losing two of their three games this week and falling two spots in ESPN’s Power Rankings.
Atlanta couldn’t quite fight through the Indiana Pacers, Tuesday, as Paul George went off for 29 points, scoring 11 points in the third quarter and dropping the Hawks for their second-straight loss.
Behind Jeff Teague and Josh Smith, the Hawks bounced back against the Memphis Grizzlies. Teague scored a game-high 22 and Atlanta bounced back in a big way, winning 103-92.
Atlanta concluded their week with a disappointing loss to the lowly New Orleans Hornets, giving up a triple-double to Grevis Vasquez and losing by double digits.
The Hawks will look to climb back up the rankings with games Monday in Dallas against the Mavericks and Wednesday at the Orlando Magic.
