More encouraging for the Hawks is that they are 5-1 since losing Al Horford to injury and were leading at halftime in that lone loss to Philadelphia. The Hawks will begin a five-game, nine-day road trip on Monday beginning in Milwaukee. Atlanta will also make stops in San Antonio, Detroit, New Orleans and Toronto before returning home on February 2.
