Despite officially being eliminated from the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks earned a tough win over Western Conference playoff contender Utah Jazz on Thursday night. Trae Young and John Collins had good performances last night, and have been a fun duo to watch all season.

Voice of the Hawks Steve Holman is nearing the end of calling his 34th season with the organization. Despite the 25-48 record, Holman said this has been one of his most exciting seasons behind the microphone.

"I'm having a ball right now. This is as much fun as I've had in many, many years," Holman said. "And that includes the 60-win season and all the Dominique (Wilkins) years. This team reminds me a lot of those early 80s teams where the Hawks were getting it together with young guys like Dominique and Cliff Levingston...This reminds me a lot of that same group as they developed and grew."
