Nets Provide Little Resistance for Hawks

New, comments

The Nets' defense took Sunday off in Atlanta as they dropped their third straight game, a 130-107 loss to the Hawks. The Nets were actually up two with 5 1/2 minutes left in the second quarter, but the Hawks closed the half on a 19-5 run. They led by as many as 23 in the third quarter and 26 in the fourth. Brook Lopez had another double-double and the Nets had five guys in double-figures, led by Devin Harris' 23 points, but they allowed the Hawks to shoot 53 percent from the field and 11-17 from 3-point range. Terrrence Williams had his best game in three weeks, scoring 18 points and grabbing 7 rebounds. On the injury front, Chris Douglas-Roberts said he expects to play Tuesday. An MRI confirmed no serious damage. Jarvis Hayes continues to put his return around Christmas. Atlanta's 130 points was the most the Nets have allowed since the double-OT thriller against the Suns three years ago.
