The Atlanta Hawks dressed in peach and black hosted the Brooklyn Nets tonight (Dec 4th) on their third “Peachtree Night” of the 2019-20 NBA season.
It was a productive first quarter for the Hawks. Cam Reddish came out the gate on fire scoring 5 points early. Reddish’s hot start helped the Hawks jumpout to a (9-2) start. Hawks big man Damian Jones was impressive early as well. Jones was a force in the paint dropping 9 points and grabbing 2 rebounds in the first quarter.
The Hawks also added a familiar face back into the rotation on Wednesday night. With under 4 mins left in the first quarter, Kevin Huerter checked in the game. Huerter was scoreless in the first quarter.

In the second quarter, we saw the Brooklyn Nets settle in and we saw former Atlanta Hawk forward Taurean Prince turn it up in the second quarter. Taurean showed us just how comfortable he is back at State Farm Arena. Prince was (6-11) for 15 points and 4 rebounds. Thanks to Taurean Prince’s big first half, the Nets went into halftime with a (56-47).
The Hawks seemed to have a bit more “Energy” to begin the second half after Hip-Hop artist Big K.R.I.T performed his hit records “KRIT Here” and “Energy” during halftime. Despite trailing to start the third quarter, Trae Young came out and scoring 5 straight points to help spark a small run for Atlanta.

After heading to the fourth quarter trailing, Atlanta Hawks fans saw a scoring explosion from Hawks rookie Cam Reddish. Reddish went on a mini-run scoring 5 straight baskets and getting the fans off their feet with a few sweet moves. The Hawks made a push to make it a close game but in the end, the Nets scoring was too much.
