Atlanta Hawks vs Houston Rockets game thread

The Atlanta Hawks look to get back on track Thursday night against James Harden and the Houston Rockets.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The up and down 2017 season continues for the Atlanta Hawks who arrive in Houston fresh off a blowout loss to the suddenly red-hot Miami Heat. Miami rattled off 62 first half points on Wednesday and never looked back dispatching Atlanta by a score of 116-93.

The Hawks have once again lost their defensive identity giving up at least 112 points in each of the last five games. Atlanta managed to win two of those contests but that certainly isn't a recipe for success for this group over the long haul.
