ATLANTA – Danilo Gallinari set an Atlanta franchise record with 10 3-pointers in a 38-point spree that carried the Hawks to a 127-112 rout of the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. His previous high was 20 points against Indiana on Feb. 13.
It was much-needed rebound for Young and the Hawks, who lost 112-111 at Cleveland the previous night on a last-second shot – just hours after Atlanta’s star guard learned he had been passed over for a spot in the March 7 All-Star Game to be held on his home court. In addition to breaking out the special court for HBCU Night, the Hawks also wore their special black uniforms with “MLK” across the front of the jersey.
Hawks: Travel to Oklahoma City on Friday night to face the Thunder.
