Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets game thread

The Hawks look to complete a weekend back-to-back with a win in Brooklyn.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks fell in heartbreaking fashion on Saturday in Chicago but the team has no time to lick its wounds. On Sunday evening, the Hawks travel to New York to take on the Brooklyn Nets on the second night of a back-to-back set and, given the late hour the season, every game is wildly important for Mike Budenholzer's team. In addition, Paul Millsap will reportedly make his return (in a bench role) for Sunday's contest and that brings an additional layer of intrigue.

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