Atlanta Hawks' tunnel decorated with student-designed posters

Tuesday April 21st, 2015

When the Atlanta Hawks take the Philips Arena court for practices and games this NBA playoffs, they'll do so walking by an impressive motivational display: a slew of signs designed by Atlanta metropolitan area students.

The Hawks began their postseason with a 99–92 home win over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, and Game 2 is slated for a 7 p.m. ET Wednesday tipoff. Center Al Horford said on Tuesday that he would play, despite sustaining a dislocated finger in Game 1. Horford recorded 10 points and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes of Game 1.
