Hawks snap Lakers’ four game win streak with close win.
The Atlanta Hawks were able to get their first win in four after pulling off the home win against a resurgent Lakers.
Neither team dominated large periods of the game, and when it came down to a Kobe Bryant last second shot, the ball bounced off the rim and into the hands of a grateful Hawks player.
Bryant landed awkwardly on his ankle and is out indefinitely until he has it checked out fully by team doctors.
The Lakers remain in that final playoff spot, but must continue to beat playoff calibre teams like Atlanta if they want to stay there come May.
