NBA: Hawks Easily Going UNDER Lately

The Atlanta Hawks have gone UNDER in five consecutive games thanks to some largely inflated totals. In Atlanta’s past five games the closing total has been nearly 206 on average, while the Hawks and their opponents are combining for just 193.8 points per game. The Hawks host the San Antonio Spurs Saturday, in a game that seems destined to close with a low total.
