The Brooklyn Nets, coming off a four-day break, take on the Atlanta Hawks tonight at the Barclays Center trying to take advantage of a recent Knicks swoon which has left the top of the Atlantic Division ripe for the taking. The Knicks lost to the LA Clippers just now, bringing the difference between them and the Nets to just half a game.
The official preview for this game will be up soon but just one note about the game before it goes up. Joe Johnson will return tonight after a foot injury made him miss the Nets' win over the Hornets last Tuesday night. Some good news for Brooklyn as they take on Joe's former squad.
