Allen Crabbe scored 20 points, Nets beat Hawks 116-104

Allen Crabbe scored 20 points, Nets beat Hawks 116-104”

D'Angelo Russell answered a pair of Hawks scores with jumpers at the other end as Brooklyn salted the win away.

The point guard came down on Caris LeVert's foot and rolled his ankle. These two teams are expected to be near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings when it's all said and done, but they were able to put on a good show for the Brooklyn crowd this afternoon. Schroder had 25 points in the loss and now leads the team in scoring with 26.5 per contest.

Atlanta point guard Dennis Schroeder, who scored 17 points, went down with a left ankle injury with 3:37 left and had to be helped off the court. Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson is a former Hawks assistant under Mike Budenholzer, and he has done a tremendous job with the amount of youth on Brooklyn's roster.

Brooklyn found a way to win once again without Lin, holding off the Hawks after leading by 16 points late in the third.

The Nets led 98-87 with under eight minutes to go, before the Hawks kicked into gear and went on a 12-2 run, tying it up at 99-99, thanks to a Marco Belinelli three-pointer with 5:19 remaining.

According to SportsBook Review, the Nets will be laying two points at home to the visiting Hawks. The revamped Hawks will look to build around Schröder, who averaged 17.9 points and 6.3 assists in his first season as a full-time starter in 2016-17.

"I told myself I just wanted to be a little more aggressive within the offense", Crabbe. "It's not going to hurt me to get them up".

He made 7 of 12 shots in 25 minutes.

After Carroll's free throw increased the lead 107-99, Ersan Ilyasova's layup cut it down to 107-101, the closest the Hawks would get.

Hawks: The Hawks are opening with a five-game trip while Phillips Arena goes through a renovation phase.

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.

Another standout was Jarrett Allen, who recorded four steals in the first half and added four rebounds in the game.
