The Hawks played the 2nd game of the west coast trip and they had to rebound from the Sacramento lost. The Hawks started off rough and they let the Blazers do whatever. They weren't really good on defense when stopping the Blazers and they weren't closing out good enough. In the second half they played a lot better and they managed to fight back. The Hawks had a good 3rd quarter and he scored 14 points. The Hawks and Blazers went back ad fourth and then it looked like the Blazers were going to win at the end of the game but Paul Millsap thought differently and scored the game-tying basket. The Trail Blazers started OT with a 7-0 run but then the Hawks scored the final 12 points and won after a huge steal on the inbound pass and secured the win. The Hawks hope to get a win against the Clippers and go into the all-star break on a high note.
