The Nets are playing a solid Hawks team in an early season measuring stick matchup. We expect the Hawks to go on a few runs in the game however a double digit lead may not come here so the alert was set at 7 points. The Nets got an early lead however the Hawks responded to go on a run of their own that maxed out with a 9 point lead. The Nets were able to respond on a few runs of their own in the second quarter to take the lead a few different times. The first half ended with a Hawks 1 point lead.

The Nets had the lead in the 3rd quarter only 2 times. The Hawks lead maxed out at 8 points and the fourth quarter started with a Hawks 2 point lead. The Nets were able to take control of the game in the fourth quarter taking the lead a few times to start the quarter. Once the Nets got the lead about halfway through the quarter they never gave it up. The lead maxed out at 5 a few times and the game ended with the Nets up by 4.
