When the Utah Jazz visited the Atlanta Hawks on December 20th, Atlanta thumped them 118-85. If you're a fan of sharing the basketball and ball movement, you definitely would have enjoyed the show the Hawks put on. They compiled 32 assists overall and 12 players scored for Atlanta. The Hawks never trailed and pushed their lead to double digits for good in the 1st quarter. They kept up the pressure, outscoring Utah in every period and made 52 percent of their shots. Sharing the ball is a staple of new head coach Mike Budenholzer, who coached for the Spurs under Gregg Popovich for many years before being hired as the head coach in Atlanta.

Utah was led by Enes Canter, who had 13 points and 13 rebounds. Alec Burks also tossed in 13 points for the Jazz, but this game really never was in doubt.
