Elias: Three Hawks Swish and Dish

The Atlanta Hawks evened the season-series with Cleveland 2-2 after defeating the Cavaliers 102-94 Monday night.

The Hawks used a balanced attack to get the victory and continued to show why they are the best team in the Eastern Conference when it comes to distributing the rock.

For a deeper look into how Atlanta assisted their win, Elias Sports Bureau explains:

Three Hawks Swish And Dish

From Elias: Devin Harris scored 25 points and handed out seven assists, Jeff Teague chipped in with 19 points and nine assists while Josh Smith scored 18 points and doled out eight assists in the Hawks’ win over the Cavaliers. It’s only the fourth time in Hawks franchise history that they had three players with at least 18 points and seven assists in the same game. It also happened on Nov. 8, 1961 (Bob Pettit, Cleo Hill and Cliff Hagan), Dec. 20, 1980 (Dan Roundfield, Eddie Johnson and Charlie Criss), and March 12, 2004 (Jason Terry, Bob Sura and Stephen Jackson).
