Dennis Schroder Leaves Hawks Game Against Nets With Apparent Ankle Injury

The Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets feature in the first NBA Sundays primetime game of the year

The gamble, although delayed by a year, might have been worth it.

The Nets defeated the Atlanta Hawks, 116-104, on Sunday afternoon before 13,917 at Barclays Center and now have a two-game win streak. The Nets lost its first game of the season to the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis on Wednesday night, 140-131. Before the matinee meeting with Atlanta, the newcomer told his coach he was willing to come off the bench, with Caris LeVert getting the nod at shooting guard. X-rays were taken, but the results weren't available.

Allen's athleticism gives head coach Kenny Atkinson defensive hope considering the former Texas Longhorn was giving Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder some fits defensively.

The Nets led 98-87 with 7:47 go after a pair of free throws from LeVert.

"I think the last quarter we played well, everybody was aggressive, everybody was ready to help on defense", Belinelli said.

The Nets finally tied the game at 32-32 with 8:22 in the second quarter after a Timofey Mozgov layup but Atlanta continued to play alongside the Nets and they trailed 56-53 at halftime.

Triceps injury ends consecutive snaps streak for Browns' Thomas
Thomas left the game in the third quarter against the Tennessee Titans after a triceps injury on his left arm. His excuse was just as dumbfounding. "I'll say it again, four downs on the one, we're going to go for it".

Russell also finished with 10 assists and seven rebounds.

For the third straight game Brooklyn had at least five players in double-figures as DeMarre Carroll added 17 points.

"I told myself I just wanted to be a little more aggressive within the offense", Crabbe. They are coming off a loss against the Hornets in Charlotte, where Dwight Howard got to exact some revenge on the latest team that traded him in the offseason.

He made 7 of 12 shots in 25 minutes. This year's Nets went on a 17-5 run to finish the game, and held the Hawks to 34 percent shooting overall. A sluggish first quarter gave way to a 37-point second that sent the Nets into halftime with a 56-53 lead. In his absence, Malcolm Delaney would be expected to start at point guard and play a fairly heavy dose of minutes.

We all knew Russell was going to impact this team dramatically from the second he stepped on the floor, but what we have seen through two games is a mature D'Angelo Russell who is ready to be the leader of the Brooklyn Nets.
