Nets 15-18 from the FT line on the game. Paul Millsap was 15-16 by himself.
Much better effort from the Nets tonight, but not good enough to win this one. Hawks now have won 17 straight games.
Anderson misses a 3. Millsap makes a 3. Just like that, it's pretty much over.
Brook Lopez again having a not-terrible game. 18 points, 7 boards, 6-11 FG in 27 minutes. Almost all his shooting in the paint.
Jarrett Jack has taken a lot of long, contested midrange jumpers in this second half.
Great night for current and former Hawks.
Darius Morris is 0-6 from the field, 0-4 from 3. The Nets desperately need Deron Williams back.
Never mind – they take the points off the board. Nets trail 91-83 with 10:40 remaining.
Kyle Korver gets a four-point play for Atlanta when Bojan Bogdanovic goes through a screen and gets called for foul on a Korver make.
Pero Antic just missed a 3-pointer by more than I've ever seen someone miss one on a regular half-court set three. It was amazing.
Jarrett Jack has 11 assists and 1 turnover, so he’s basically the inverse of Derrick Rose, which is sadly true
Brook is in. Jack takes a long two. Jack misses.
"That's a wishing tree!" - Ian Eagle (context not necessary).
It's pretty remarkable how much better Jeff Teague has gotten as a player. He's more than worth the All-Star selection he should get.
Oh whoa a bag of Takis is technically four servings
Miss uuords, new basketball analyst: “Brooklyn games go really slow. There’s a lot of standing around.”
Do, like, the Hawks have dude in a Sly costume tied up in the bowels of their arena? http://t.co/lN8e34Yz4f
Kyrie Irving has done everything but serve popcorn tonight, Cavs play-by-play man. Double Nickle.
I just learned they sell Takis at Knicks games. I bought a bag of Fuego.
OK, I switched to Cavs-Blazers quickly. Kyrie is NUTS.
Jalen Rose on Brook Lopez: "He's like ice cream. ...No wonder you're sitting here (Avery Johnson)."
At halftime here in Atlanta, the Atlanta Hawk and Sly Fox are playing a game of NBA Jam against each other. Seriously.
For the ENTIRE season, only once has a Nets player scored 30-plus points. And that was second game of season.
Hawks closed the half with a 12-4 run to take a 64-53 lead into the break over the Nets. Johnson with 14, Lopez with 10 for Nets.
The Nets have done really well defending Korver in the first half and he STILL buried 3 3’s in rapid succession.
Kevin Garnett checks out after picking up his third foul. Couple of rough minutes for him here in the second.

Jeff Teague is treating Darius Morris like they’re related.
Nets were a -3 in the seven minutes Cory Jefferson played. Helped keep them in the game. Need those kind of minutes from him.
Also, the most excited Nets fan ever is sitting right behind us here in Atlanta. Losing his mind over every single made basket.
Cory Jefferson should never sit on the bench again.
Cory Jefferson just drew a second foul on Al Horford. Didn't think I'd write that sentence today.
Brook Lopez swatted that Dennis Schroder drive as nonchalantly as you can possibly block a shot.
If Kyle Korver gets open for even a split second it's stunning if he misses.
Jarrett Jack, Alan Anderson, Bojan Bogdanovic, Cory Jefferson and Brook Lopez in to start the second quarter.
The Nets played one of their best quarters in a long time and trail 30-27.
Nets trail 30-27 after one. Watching Kyle Korver shoot is a thing of beauty.
Kyle Korver has been uncapped.
This is truly the Season of Ansel Elgort on MSG celebrity row
Why does the Hawks logo look like PacMan?
Jeff Teague to the locker room.
Nets getting into passing lanes. Already forced six turnovers.
Whoa, Alan Anderson.
Nets up 9-3 on the Hawks 3 minutes into the game. Joe Johnson aggressive so far.
Some things never change: http://t.co/txJAOSvT2g
Nets lose the tip. And we’re off.
And obviously that team history is limited to Atlanta; clearly Joe doesn't match either Bob Pettit or Dominique in all-time Hawks history.
You can make a strong case for Joe Johnson being the 2nd-best Hawk in team history. Number should be retired. Ignoring him is a bad look.
This might be Nets last game on national TV this year (they have one more scheduled). Wonder if that’s on their minds.
That said, it's pretty ridiculous Joe Johnson wasn't included on pregame list of great players/coaches in team history on the jumbotron.
After the amount of indifference there has been about the Hawks here over the years, it's pretty neat to see the city embrace this team.
Watched ESPN's pregame show ahead of Nets-Hawks. They devoted zero seconds to the Nets.
Granted, tonight the Nets are playing the Hawks, who are made of fire.
One weird stat though: of Nets best 6 3-man combos with at least 200 minutes, Alan Anderson is in 4 of them. AA/Johnson/Plumlee is +6.5/100.
Tonight’s Nets starting lineup has only played 17 minutes together this season. They’re a +6, though!
Tonight's starters vs ATL: Jack, Anderson, Johnson, Garnett, Plumlee... Williams and Teletovic are inactive.
The Nets have made a starting lineup change: Alan Anderson will start at shooting guard in place of Bojan Bogdanovic.
Alan Anderson moved to starting lineup, per team. Jack, Anderson, Johnson, Garnett, Plumlee.
Nets have arrived at Philips. Got here about 10 minutes ago.
