1)  Kyle Korver makes NBA history by hitting a three-pointer in a record 90th consecutive game on Dec. 6 against the Cavaliers.

2)  Pero Antic’s circus three-pointer off one leg ties the game in regulation against the Charlotte Bobcats on Dec. 28.  The Hawks eventually won in overtime in their first game without Al Horford.

3)  Al Horford’s catch-and-shoot buzzer beater off the inbounds pass with 1.5 seconds left lifts the Hawks to a 101-99 overtime win over the Wizards on Dec. 13.

4)  Jeff Teague’s step-back jumper hits every part of the rim before falling, giving the Hawks a 127-125 double overtime win over Cleveland on Dec. 26.

5)  Paul Millsap heaved a three-quarter court prayer that fell at the buzzer, capping Atlanta’s 37-point first quarter Dec. 6 against the Cavaliers.
