The Hawks win 131-99. Horford scores 20 points, Carroll scores 20 points, three rebounds. Bogdanovic scores 19 points for the Nets. Coach Budenholzer on Millsap’s injuries:
We’ll evaluate it and know more (Sunday) and Monday.
On referees no foul calls:
I thought he got ran over, but it was a loose ball and both guys were going after it.
I think the most important thing was the sense of urgency. It was good to see us moving the ball, doing the little things we were doing when we won 19 in a row.
They beat us. From start to finish. It was a good whipping. There’s nothing else that I can say. They dominated the game.
The Nets win 93-81. Lopez scores 22 points, 13 rebounds, Young scores 18 points and 11 rebounds and Bogdanovic scores 19 points. Carroll scores 22 points and Millsap scores a double-double (18 points and 17 rebounds). Atlanta leads East First Round Series 2-1.
Coach Budenholzer on Game 3 loss:
I think they’re a confident group, just like we are. It’s the playoffs. I think they’ve played well really for stretches from the beginning and it’s going to be a series.
From the beginning of the game, they had more of an edge than we did. This was a big game for them and they came out and handled their business.
Korver on Game 3:
I didn’t get any good looks early and I tried to force a couple late. I need to be better on Monday.
