The need for the Atlanta Hawks to have a second star was highlighted in the second period

The Atlanta Hawks were looking great early in the second period

The Heat put on a 26-4 run and the Hawks were on the back foot going into halftime.

The only potentially mitigating circumstance is that Young appeared to hurt his ankle early in the game

The Hawks were on the back foot from there and never really got back into the game

This team is too experienced to let this advantage slip without something amazing from the Hawks.

However, John Collins, who is the Hawks highest paid player for the season, has been back a couple of games and just was not himself in this game.

In all honesty, the Atlanta Hawks need to go all-in to get this second star becuase without this star power, they are not going to make it as deep into the playoffs as they would want.
