The Atlanta Hawks are taking on the Los Angeles Clippers and have a solid 11 point lead. Unfortunately it could have been 13 points if Hawks forward Mike Scott managed to sink this dunk which he whiffed on. In six minutes in the first have Scott has two points and is one of three shooting from the field.

The hawks are trying to recover from a rough loss on the load to the Washington Wizards.

“It’s a very, very (tough loss),” Hawks’ Paul Millsap said, via ESPN. “The effort was there, the effort was definitely there. Guys were out there in sync. So to get out there and lay it all out there and not come out with the victory is kind of tough.”

“I’m proud of our guys. (Monday) was a very good effort,” coach Mike Budenholzer said. “If we play that long and that hard in games, we’re going to be OK. It’s good for our guys to compete the way they competed.”

Of course they had no idea this would happen:
