Kris is a lifelong Atlanta sports fan who is still a huge Atlanta Hawks fan and currently writes for Peachtree Hoops. One of the darkest days of his life was the day that Dominique Wilkins was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers. He follows all of the Atlanta Sports teams and considers himself to be a big Georgia Bulldog, Braves, and Falcons fan.
The Atlanta Hawks went toe-to-toe with the defending NBA champs for two and a half quarters before turnovers and poor shot selection derailed the upset bid.
The Atlanta Hawks could get a boost on Wednesday as Kyle Korver could return to the lineup after missing the last five games while battling back spasms.
