Nets Complete Home-and-Home Sweep of Hawks

The Hawks had only lost one game going into Friday, and that was a one-point defeat in Boston. About 26 hours later, the Nets had given them losses two and three. Saturday's game in Atlanta wasn't nearly as close as the night before. An 18-2 run that spanned the first and second quarters gave the Nets a 15-point lead, but the Hawks fought back and eventually tied the game midway through the third. The Nets then took control for good with a 16-4 run late in the period. They cruised from there. Devin Harris led the way once again, scoring 33 points and dishing out 10 assists. Vince Carter added 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting, and Ryan Anderson and Jarvis Hayes combined for 31 points off the bench. The Nets shot 12-of-18 from three point range. Hayes left the game in the fourth quarter with back spasms.
