In a game marked by unprecedented back-and-forth action, Mikal Bridges delivered a clutch performance, scoring 32 points, including a game-winning step-back jumper with 4.5 seconds left, to propel the Brooklyn Nets (11-9) to a thrilling 114-113 win over the Atlanta Hawks (9-11) on Wednesday night.

Despite Atlanta’s efforts, including Trae Young’s 30 points and Saddiq Bey’s crucial free throws that briefly gave the Hawks a 110-109 lead, Spencer Dinwiddie’s precise plays and Bridges’ clutch shot in the closing seconds sealed the Nets’ narrow victory.

The Hawks had one final opportunity, but Young’s off-balance shot at the buzzer, contested by Bridges and Dennis Smith Jr., bounced off the rim, securing the Nets’ hard-fought win.

Nets’ Cam Johnson contributed 17 points, mainly in the first half, and Dorian Finney-Smith added 15 points. Dinwiddie, with 13 points, played a crucial role in the final moments.

For the Hawks, Bey led with 21 points, while Bogdan Bogdanovic contributed 20. Despite Atlanta’s strong defensive effort, they couldn’t secure the win on the final possession.
