The Atlanta Hawks are coming off two big wins against top teams in the league. The most recent coming on Tuesday against the third best team in the Eastern Conference OKC Thunder, 142-126.

For a team in rebuild mode, some opponents may come in unprepared for the relentless effort this young team Hawks team continues to play with game in and game out.

"We're a team that plays hard," Hawks rookie shooting guard Kevin Huerter said. "Obviously being a young team, we try to do that, and it comes from our coaching staff too. We're going to come out--we're going to play as hard as we can, we're going to play defense."

"If we keep trying to put everything together, especially with the youth of our team and hopefully staying healthy, we're still going to be a tough team for teams to beat."
