Hawks deliver biggest comeback in franchise history

There was a great scene on Monday night as the Atlanta Hawks came back from a 30-point deficit to beat the Boston Celtics 120-118. The Hawks were once trailing the Celtics 68-38 with four minutes and 23 second quarter, before outscoring the Celtics 82-50 the rest of the game. In fact, the Hawks pulled within three points just four minutes and three seconds into the third quarter, that means in span of eight minutes and 26 seconds, the Hawks outscored the Celtics 37-10.

The Hawks’s comeback was the biggest in franchise history, and the seventh biggest in NBA history. Ironically, the previous Hawks’s record for the greatest comeback also came against the Celtics, as they were down by 27 points on January 25 2013, before winning 123-111. In this game, the Hawks once trailed 48-21 with five minutes and 47 seconds left in the first half.

The biggest comeback in NBA history is 36 points. The Utah Jazz were down by that margin to the Denver Nuggets on November 27, 1996 before winning 107-103.

In the Hawks’s magical comeback on Monday, the Hawks took the lead with one minute left as guard Dejounte Murray of Seattle, Washington made a layup. In all, six Hawks players reached double digits in scoring. Shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic of Belgrade, Serbia had 22 points, Murray had 19 points, guard Vit Krejci of Strakonice, Czech Republic had 16 points, center Clint Capela of Geneva, Switzerland had 14 points and center Bruno Fernando of Luanda, Angola had 13 points. Murray and Capela each had double-doubles, as Murray had 15 assists and Capela had 12 rebounds.

What we also saw on Monday is the fact that Murray is playing comfortable at the point guard position. The Hawks’s regular point guard Trae Young is out with a hand injury.
