Don't look now, but the Nets are one of the hottest teams in the league. They've won three in a row, and 12 of their last 15 games after dispatching the Bulls on Sunday, and are now up to seventh place in the East.

The big man has been playing some excellent basketball lately, and he kept it up with a 28-point, 18-rebound outing in this win. Towns has now had at least 28 points and 12 rebounds in six straight games.

Part of that, of course, is showing Davis that the Pelicans can compete with the best teams in the Western Conference. And while they did a pretty good job of that last spring, reaching the conference semifinals for the first time in 10 years, things have been tougher this season.

This might just be the wildest game you’ll see all year.

The Hawks entered tonight’s game winning three of their last four games and narrowly losing their last game to the Pacers in Atlanta. The team was traveling light in the frontcourt as Alex Len continues to recover and with Omar Spellman continuing to be sidelined for a little while longer.
