Denver Nuggets vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

Monday didn't go well but the Hawks are back on the horse this evening.

The Atlanta Hawks encounter a difficult challenge on Wednesday, if only because it is a very different one from Monday. The Utah Jazz make waves based on their elite-level defense, whereas the visiting Denver Nuggets are actually (quite) bad on the defensive end. Still, Denver's offense is quite potent and the Hawks need this win before beginning a road trip.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
