Game thread: Hawks at Nets

When/where: 3:30 p.m. today, Barclays Arena, Brooklyn, N.Y.

TV: Fox Sports Southeast

Stream: Fox Sports Go

Radio: 92.9 The Game

Injuries: Hawks—Miles Plumlee (quad) and DeAndre’ Bembry (wrist) are out. Nets—Jeremy Lin (knee) is out.

What to watch for: The Hawks blew a 20-point lead at Charlotte on Friday to drop to 1-1 on the season. After scoring 56 points in the paint against the Mavericks’ soft interior D, the Hawks scored only 40 against the Hornets and the majority of those came with Dwight Howard on the bench. The Nets have allowed 104 points in the paint in two games.

Lin had season-ending surgery on Friday for a ruptured patella tendon, the same day the Nets beat Magic 126-121 at home. Journeyman Spencer Dinwiddie, who is expected to absorb Lin’s minutes in the rotation, scored 17 points in 25 minutes against the Magic.
