The Atlanta Hawks are now winners of five straight games and fighting their way out of a hole that was created by the team being ravaged by Covid, injuries and poor play. Dukes & Bell talked about why they think the team is suddenly surging.

Carl asked if the Hawks are suddenly having fun again and if that’s led to the recent resurgence.

“I do think you look down the bench now you go, oh he’s available? He’s available? That’s a good thing for us, now I just need us to continue to try and create this vibe we have going on,” Dukes said. “Is this also a team now that’s starting to have fun? It’s easy to say we’re winning and having fun, but didn’t it seem like we weren’t having any fun the first three months?”
