Article Summary:

The Atlanta Hawks suffered their fifth straight defeat as they fell to the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City on Tuesday night, 110-98.

Kevin Huerter led the Hawks as he started in place of Bogdan Bogdanovic with 28 points, while Trae Young added 27 points.

In the third quarter, the Hawks closed the margin to three points but the tide seemed to turn when John Collins picked up his fourth foul – the Jazz pushed their lead back up to 18 before the end of the third.

The Hawks, at that point, honestly looked against it: second night of a back-to-back on the road, down 15 points, shorter on bodies and with seemingly no answer for the Jazz defensively, who had scored 30 or more points in all three quarters prior to that point. The Hawks would only score five points the rest of the way and went scoreless for the next three-plus minutes as the Jazz pulled away.
