Russell scores 32, Nets beat Hawks 144-127 for 5th straight

NEW YORK (AP) Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson watched the Nets let a 21-point lead slip to two and was reminded of the offensive flaws that sent the team spiraling on an eight-game skid a few weeks ago.

Needing a spark on the offensive end, Atkinson made sure D'Angelo Russell led the way.

Russell scored 32 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 18 and the Nets beat the Atlanta Hawks 144-127 on Sunday for their fifth straight win.
