The Hottest Team is the Atlanta Hawks past few weeks, now way to stop them, you can only hope to contain them.
The Hawks won their 12th game in a line and 26th from the past 28 games Saturday night with a resounding 107-99 win over the Chicago Bulls at the United Center.
The Hawks led all of the game against the team the majority are picking to win the NBA East. Nevertheless the Bulls could never get too close to Atlanta who continued doing what they seem to accomplish best, move the basketball.
Sniper Kyle Korver led the Hawks with 24 points hitting seven three-point hoops on the night. Korver remains hitting over 50 percent of his three point shots on the season. Center Al Horford chipped in with 22. Nevertheless the statistic you need to focus on: The Hawks as a team had 31 assists on 40 baskets, something they do most every evening and something rarely done in the NBA.
The win moves Atlanta to 33-8 at the precise halfway point of the season. They’re 5 games in front of every other team in the NBA East and merely a game and a half behind Golden State for the best record in the NBA.
