Nance finished with 15 points, 16 boards, 6 assists and 3 steals.

Lin scored 12 of his 16 points in the fourth to help ATL pull away with the win.

John Collins had 20 points and 13 boards to lead the Hawks.

Playing calm and under control, D’Angelo Russell sank a dagger three-pointer with 22 seconds remaining as Brooklyn won its sixth straight game.

Things are definitely looking up in Brooklyn.
