“They crazy for leaving me open, that's what was going through my head,” said De'Andre Hunter about his late three-point shot to ice the game for Atlanta. It was the exclamation point on a hard-fought road victory for the Hawks, their second consecutive win on this road trip. It was a balanced effort, as they showed patience on both sides of the ball, remaining in control for most of the game despite a late run from Utah. The first quarter began strongly in the Hawks favor, with the visitors sprinting out to an early 14-3 lead.

Three thoughts on the Utah Jazz's 115-108 loss to the Atlanta Hawks from Salt Lake Tribune beat writer Andy Larsen. The Jazz played some really bad defense tonight, I thought, allowing the Hawks to get 117 points per 100 possessions while not shooting very well from deep. A couple of possessions of note: usually, you see Jarred Vanderbilt hustling his buns off everywhere. Then, Malik Beasley doesn't make contact on the glass, allowing his man to get the offensive rebound.
