The Atlanta Hawks clobbered the Los Angeles Clippers 104-93 on Saturday night, but the score doesn’t accurately portray just how bad the beat down truly was. In order to best illustrate the dominance, I’ll let the artist that is Elias Sports Bureau paint the picture for you..
The Hawks outscored the Clippers 30-17 in the second quarter and 34-19 in the third period, on their way to a 104-93 victory. It was the first time in 15 years that Atlanta scored at least 30 points and permitted fewer than 20 points in each of back-to-back quarters of one game. The Hawks had last done that in March 1997 at Boston, when they out-pointed the Celtics 35-19 and 34-17 in the first and second periods, respectively, paving the way for a 114-90 victory.
