Very few games were on the bill Saturday in the NBA, but both lotto contenders on the board limboed under unscathed.
Atlanta rolled over like dogs in textbook fashion against the Mavericks in their quest to catch the Bobcats. The Hawks mean no business as they know their matchup against the Magic looms large tonight.
"You'd love to lose 60 games," said Hawks coach Mike Woodson. "But right now we have to take this day by day and avoid focus on the next game."
In Sacramento, the Jazz narrowly avoided the victory, but Andrei Kirilenko could face a team suspension after blocking 10 shots. "His head's in the game," said one Utah teammate who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "Sure we lost, but that's potentially 20 King points right there. Simply unacceptable."
