Phoenix
Atlanta

[ATLANTA] — The Atlanta Hawks played host to the Phoenix Suns last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 95 to 91 Hawks victory. The win bumps Atlanta's record up to 38-36 on the season, while the loss drags Phoenix's down to 22-53. Though a win's a win and Hawks fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Dwight Howard's 15 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 blocks and 1 steals in 36 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Howard, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Hawks. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Phoenix back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Hawks in the victory was Tyler Ulis and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Howard, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Ulis posted 15 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists in the win.

Atlanta's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Suns, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Hawks will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Hawks will be a date with the Philadelphia 76ers while the visiting Suns will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.
