The Hawks unleash a blistering 24-3 run late in the 4th quarter to erase a 7 pt Orlando Magic lead to beat them 95-83.
After a poor start and 2 1/2 uninspired quarters, the Hawks went back to playing their brand of basketball: Active hands & communication on defense, hot shooting from behind the arc, and taking advantage of any lapse by the Magic. The win also exhibited a toughness shown by Paul Milsap’s dominance in the 1st half and Jeff Teague taking over the game in the 4th quarter
Hawks return to take on the Miami Heat. They are partnering with rapper and potential mayoral candidate 2 Chainz to provide fans with a pregame and half time entertainment. Very interesting

In the end is was a tale of 3 N;s ‘Nique week, (Atlanta) Night Life, and New attitude
- ‘Nique week-It was the culmination of a week of honors for the man called the “Human Highlight. The charged up crowd again helped spur the Hawks to this win
- Night life- Like so many players do when they come to Atlanta it is alleged that LeBron was seen out a well known night spot in the ‘A’. He at times lacked energy, and seemed to be a bit tired….Just saying
- New attitude-The Hawks clearly have a different attitude. They believe they can beat anybody, anywhere. There is a confidence and resiliency that this team has that allows them to play from behind, and put away teams when they have leads
