Hawks vs Cavs
The Cleveland Cavaliers travel to the Atl looking to extend their 9-game win streak. James and company are also avenge their loss during their disappointing 5-7 start, ending the Hawks’ eight-game losing streak.
Kevin Love led Cleveland with 25 points and tied a season high with 16 rebounds. King James added 24 points and 12 assists, and D. Wade contributed 19 points and four steals off the bench.The Cavs’ defeated the Hawks 121-114 extending their winning streak to 10.
Schroder scored 17 of his 27 points in the first half, largely by getting past Jose Calderon in the pick and roll with no real rim protector for Cleveland in there to help. “He was kicking our butts in the first half,” James said. “Just tried to use my intelligence against him with help of my teammates. Just tried to do a good job on him. “I felt like if I can turn his water down some it would have an effect on the rest of those guys and also an effect on us offensively. That’s exactly what happened.”
The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and Philips Arena remain committed to making Atlantans proud on the court and off. The 2014-15 Southeast Division Champions actually, the Hawks have made the postseason in 10 consecutive seasons and reached the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history in 2015. Off the court, the organization has built a culture of inclusion, diversity and innovation. It continues into the community where the organization builds bridges through basketball. The Hawks are definitely hands on in the city. They have been constructing and refurbishing courts in Atlanta neighborhoods and providing scholarships to our basketball camps.
