Driven by the strong choices of Nate McMillan, who notably did without his star leader Trae Young during the money-time, the Atlanta Hawks snatched victory on Sunday on the floor of the Charlotte Hornets (105-101). A success that they owe as much to Bogdan Bogdanovic (32 points, 8 winning baskets) or Clint Capela (20 points, 15 rebounds) as to Terry Rozier (18 points).
The leader of the Hornets inexplicably took a three-point snack at the very end of the fourth quarter, while his team was behind by two points (101-103), largely missing his attempt. Bogdanovic then closed the scoring with two free throws.
This success, the 29th of the season (for 25 losses), allows Atlanta to consolidate its fourth place in the Eastern Conference, widening the gap on … Charlotte (27v-25d, 5th).
