The Atlanta Hawks are clearly not the type of birds who enjoy long flights. In a week highlighted on the schedule for so long, the Hawks failed to give the type of performances that they have proven to be capable of.
The week began with a trip out West to face the Memphis Grizzlies in Tennessee. With both teams missing their All-Star centers, this was a game very much up for grabs. As soon as the Grizzlies game was out of the way, the Hawks then set off on their trip to London. Having lost to the Nets in their previous meeting this season, the Hawks were looking to exact revenge on the global stage.
A tough week because of travel, and the absence of any true “home” games left the Hawks drawing blank this week. They finished 0-2.
