The Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks collide at the Philips Arena tonight.
The Hawks will be going for a fifth straight win tonight after sneaking past the Heat in a 98-92 win last night. Jeff Teague led from the front with a game-high 26 points and nine assists, Al Horford added 17 points while Paul Millsap added 12 points as the Hawks fought off a late rally to come out on top. With the win, Atlanta improves to 4-1 on the season and a perfect 3-0 on the road so far.

Meanwhile, it has been four games already and the Nets are still searching for their first win of the season. Brook Lopez scored 18 points, Jarrett Jack added 15 points while Joe Johnson added 14 points but it still wasn't enough in a 103-96 loss to the Bucks on Monday night. Following three straight losses by double digits to start the season, the Nets will really be kicking themselves about this loss as they actually held a 96-94 lead with 2:40 left in the game before they went ice-cold.
In ATS trends, the Nets are 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last four against the Eastern Conference, while the Hawks are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 0-5 ATS in the last five home games.
Head to head, the Nets are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Atlanta and the road team is 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings overall.
The Hawks haven't exactly been playing their best basketball, but they've found a way to win each of their last four games and that's a lot more than I can say for the winless Nets. With that being said, I'm taking the Hawks to stay hot and win their fifth straight tonight.
