Hawks-Mavericks Preview

(AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks keep surging by playing what has been the best defense in the NBA in recent weeks.

The Hawks (19-7) are limiting opponents to 97.0 points per game and have further elevated their defensive play during a 12-1 run, holding opponents to 89.6 points and 41.8 percent shooting.
