The Line: Atlanta Hawks -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Atlanta Hawks look to continue their dominance over the Charlotte Bobcats when they duke it out tonight.
The Hawks have won four of their last five and are coming off a dramatic 127-125 double overtime win over the Cavaliers thanks to a buzzer beater from Jeff Teague who led the way with a career-high 34 points. Just about every Hawks player made clutch baskets down the stretch with Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap adding 20 points apiece, but the win came with a real bitter aftertaste as Al Horford turn his right pectoral during the game and is out indefinitely.
