CAVALIERS 97 HAWKS 106 F...Just like the "HUMAN HIGHLIGHT" DOMINIQUE the HAWKS spin their way around "BELIEVELAND" late to hit the Winner's Circle!..."LOGO WATCH" with A.T.L. in VINTAGE Duds!..#CLEvsATL #CAVSnation #ATLHawksNation

A balances attack for both teams turned into who wanted this one in the 4th. With Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins being honored and the Hawks in vintage duds Atlanta had no choice but to deliver and give Hawks Nation what they wanted!

After Atlanta came out firing on all cylinders like the Cavs thought they would leading 36-17 after one. The game settled down after that as the Cavs dba "Believeland" cut into that 19-point lead by the break by seven with a 53-43 Hawks lead. Hawks All-Star Al Horford led Atlanta at the break with 13 points as Cleveland was led by Kyrie Irving 8 points.

The 3rd frame stared with the Cavs 1st unit getting fully involved like a Firehouse Sub with extra Deli Mustard. Atlanta led at the end of three 81-79 but not after Kevin Love (14 pts through 3 periods) and King James (11 pts through 3 periods) got involved heavily.

The 4th though belonged to Hawks reserve Mike Scott who added 10 of his 14 points in the 4th as Atlanta started the 4th on a 17-4 run by the under seven-minute mark. That run was all they needed as they win 106-97 going away in  the 4th shooting 51% from the field and over 82% from the stripe.  

Atlanta gets six players in double-figures led by Horford's 19 points and nine boards. Hawks All-Star PG Jeff Teague's "Caddy" Dennis Schroder added 15 pts and 8 assists as he has figured more than a few things. Cleveland put five in double figures led by Kyrie's 20 points as he as 0-5 from the arc.

The Hawks move to 49-12 while the Cavs missed another opportunity to overtake the Bulls in the NBA Central falling to 39-25...
