Kyle Korver Ties NBA Record

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

Kyle Korver tied Dana Barros for consecutive games with a three-point field goal in his return to the lineup Wednesday by making a triple on the Hawks’ opening possession.

Hawks Right There In Muddied East

The Hawks haven’t been playing great basketball as of late, having lost four of their past five, but that hasn’t changed their early position as the Eastern Conference’s #3 seed thanks to some poor playing by others below them.
