Hawks Vs. Nets Score: Atlanta Still In Control Leading 80-71 After Three

Atlanta continues to play well but New Jersey's three-point shooting is keeping them in the game with the Hawks leading the Nets 80-71 at the close of the third quarter.

The Hawks continue to shoot over 55 percent on the floor but may need to dig in with their perimeter defense to close the Nets out. Josh Smith has a game high 21 points to go along with five rebounds and a couple of assists. Jeff Teague has hit all three of his three-point attempts and has 16 points and four assists for the Hawks.

MarShon Brooks had a big third quarter for the Nets and now has 15 points and eight rebounds. Deron Williams has 10 points and 11 assists for the Nets to go along with four turnovers. The Nets have hit 8-15 three-point attempts in the game and 13-16 from the free throw line to help keep themselves in the game.
