Brooklyn Nets vs. Atlanta Hawks
Final Score: Nets 127 Hawks 110
The Brooklyn Nets were able to pickup a nice win over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday afternoon in London, as 2014 continues to be very good for the Nets. The win moves the Nets to (16-22) on the season, and they continue to gain ground in the Atlantic Division, as they are now just 3.5 games behind the Toronto Raptors.
After spending about 10 thousand dollars in a London club Monday night, Joe Johnson played like a million bucks on Thursday afternoon. Johnson started the game with a 15-point first quarter, and never looked back after his hot start. Johnson finished with a game-high 29 points on 11 for 15 shooting, which included him going six for eight from three-point land. He only had three points in the second half, as the Hawks started to double-team him, but Johnson adjusted making some nice passes, which led to him having five assists.
