Is any team having more fun than the Atlanta Hawks right now?
Behind the NBA's best defense -- and at least one unsung hero -- Atlanta has won 13 straight and owns a five-game lead over the rest of the Eastern Conference. Off the court, the Hawks are bonding with the city of Atlanta in some unique ways, including their Tinder "Swipe Right Night" and CEO and part-owner Steve Koonin's excuse note for employees who stay up late to watch the team on West Coast swings.
On MLK Day, they did it their own way again by letting an ensemble choir led by former Hawks guard and current pastor John Battle announce the starting lineup.
The Hawks beat the Pistons 93-82 to get their NBA-best 34th win.
