Hawks boosted by fourth quarter execution in win over Pacers

The Atlanta Hawks returned to action on Sunday afternoon with a victory over the visiting Indiana Pacers, 129-117.

Trae Young bounced back after a subpar game on Thursday against the Milwaukee Bucks with 34 points and 11 assists against the Pacers, while Clint Capela added a monster double-double with 25 points and 24 rebounds.

For the Pacers, Malcolm Brogdon led the way with 29 points while T.J. McConnell and Domantas Sabonis both added 18 points.

The Hawks were coming off of two-days rest for the first time since the All-Star break — boosted by the return of John Collins to the starting lineup — and it seemed to show as the Hawks were rampant from the offset, running out to a 20 point lead inside the first seven minutes, dominating at the rim en route to 35 first quarter points.
