Kawhi Leonard wasn't playing because of left knee injury management, while Patrick Beverly was sidelined after leaving the previous night's victory at Dallas with a groin injury. Paul George was out for the seventh straight game with a left hamstring strain.
The Hawks also were without their best player. Trae Young, averaging 29.2 points, was sidelined with a right thigh contusion.
