Hawks haven't given up an offensive board in nearly 8 minutes, as order has been restored: Hawks 72, Nets 56 at 2:30 mark of 3rd quarter

A career high for Brook Lopez

The Hawks are struggling to keep Brooklyn's star center off the glass. Lopez has 13 rebounds, including 6 offensive, to set a new personal postseason best. Atlanta has just 5 offensive rebounds total.


Hawks respond with help from deep

Just as quickly as the Nets got hot, they cooled off, and DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver knocked down triples from the left side to push Atlanta's lead back to double digits over midway through the third quarter. One potential problem: Jeff Teague has four fouls for the Hawks. Follow live

8-seed just a number to The Brow

The Pelicans showed they wouldn't back down from the heavily-favored Warriors in a close Game 1 loss on Saturday. On Sunday, Anthony Davis reiterated that lack of fear to reporters: "There's no doubt in my mind that we can beat [the Warriors]."

Crowded backfield in Philadelphia with so many QBs: • Sam Bradford • Mark Sanchez • Matt Barkley • Tim Tebow

A 50/50 shot for the Nets

The Nets are shooting precisely 50% from the field at the half. That's a nice break-even line for Brooklyn this season, though it could be a problem; the Nets are 11-0 when shooting better than 50% from the field this season. while they're 27-44 when shooting 50% or worse. Follow live
