Hawks at Nets Game 6, NBA Playoffs 2015: Can Brooklyn force Game 7?

New, comments

Facing elimination, the Nets play host to the Hawks at the Barclays Center tonight.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

After losing the first two games in the series, Brooklyn responded well by winning two straight with solid play from Brook Lopez and a vintage Deron Williams performance. The Nets have never lost a Game 6 in the first round and faced with a must-win game, the pressure will be on to extend the series.

Meanwhile, Atlanta moves onto the next round with a win and would be set to face the Washington Wizards on Sunday at 10:00 p.m. PST on ABC. The Hawks got double-figure scoring from all starters in Game 5 and will look to maintain this balanced attack for a close-out victory tonight.
