The Atlanta Hawks will take on the Portland Trail Blazers tonight on the road. This will be the second game of a back-to-back set for the Hawks. With a win tonight, the Hawks would improve to 3-3 on the season, take a 1-0 lead in the regular season series with the Trail Blazers, and improve to 1-1 on their four-game road trip. I think the key to a win tonight for the Hawks is to play with energy and intensity all the way until the final buzzer. They have to keep playing hard for all four quarters (and overtime, if necessary). Yesterday against the Los Angeles Clippers, they let the Clippers take over in the second half. They can't allow that to happen tonight. If the Hawks can keep up their energy and intensity until the final buzzer, I think they can get a W tonight in the second game of a four-game road trip.
