See also

The Hawks traveled across the Atlantic Ocean to London for an unfortunate result - a 17-point loss at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday.

The 127-110 loss dropped Atlanta to 20-19, while it represented the Nets' third win in as many tries in London. Former Hawk Joe Johnson led the Nets with 29 points, notching 26 of them in the first half. Andray Blatche added 20 points and 14 rebounds, while Paul Pierce kicked in 18 points.

The Hawks only managed to keep it close for a quarter, before Brooklyn pulled away with the game. Atlanta trailed by 25 points at the end of the third quarter, as the game became quite uninteresting in the second half.

Mike Scott and Shelvin Mack led the Hawks with 17 points, both off the bench. Jeff Teague had 16 points, while Paul Millsap had 13 points and three steals.

The Hawks have a few days off to adjust to coming back to the States before taking the court again. Their next game is on Monday night against the Miami Heat at Philips Arena. With the loss, the Hawks are now fourth in the Eastern Conference, a half game behind the Toronto Raptors. Brooklyn, despite a 16-22 record, would make the playoffs today as a 7-seed.
