The Hawks may find themselves tied for fourth in the Eastern Conference if they can extend their winning streak in a matchup against the visiting Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.
Atlanta (37-29) is fifth in the conference, 11 1/2 games ahead of the ninth-place tie between Toronto and Philadelphia with 16 games remaining.

Poor girl, I hope she is ok.
Looks like she just hit a wet spot on the floor and lost her balance. She hit her head pretty hard on the floor. Hopefully, they just carted her off as a precaution.
