The Atlanta Hawks (26-32) secured a resounding 124-97 victory over the Utah Jazz (27-32), led by Jalen Johnson’s double-double performance.

Atlanta’s strong start, fueled by an early 12-0 lead, set the tone for the game, with Johnson contributing 22 points and 13 rebounds to lead the charge.

Despite missing key players like Trae Young and Onyeka Okongwu due to injuries, the Hawks managed to dominate their opponents.

Dejounte Murray delivered a solid performance with 17 points and 11 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic contributed 19 points, while DeAndre Hunter added 20 off the bench.

Utah struggled to find momentum throughout the game, with Collin Sexton’s 22 points not enough to overcome Atlanta’s dominant performance.

Former Hawk John Collins, now with the Jazz, faced his former team for the first time since being traded, but managed only five points and 10 rebounds in a subdued outing. Keyonte George and Walker Kessler added 14 points each.
