Postgame Thoughts: Hawks Get Biggest Conference Road Win of Season

A few thoughts after tonight’s 105-93 win over the Nets: - It was clear the Hawks wanted to establish the paint tonight, playing through Al Horford from the get-go.  The big man had a game-high 22 points on 11-21 shooting.  The 21 shots is what I loved.  Coach Drew had a plan to get... »
