The Atlanta Hawks after losing to Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings had a confidence boost by beating the Golden State Warriors during their last match, 124-108. This team is still on their NBA Western Conference swing and will get tested by the Denver Nuggets next. Their record is now at 23-22 and sixth-best in the NBA Eastern Conference trailing the New York Knicks by half a game. Lou Williams is expected to join the Hawks for this game after getting traded for Rajon Rondo but expect him to squeeze into the system first before providing his usual stats wearing a Clippers uniform.
