Hawks look to maintain strong defense vs. Cavs

The Atlanta Hawks hope the defensive effort they produced in their opening game will carry over when they make their first road appearance of the season against the winless Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.

With a balanced scoring attack and stellar defensive work, Atlanta defeated the Dallas Mavericks 113-87 on Thursday. The Cavaliers dropped a 123-112 decision to the Charlotte Hornets on Friday in their home opener, dropping Cleveland to 0-2.

Atlanta's defense was led by De'Andre Hunter, who is healthy after being limited to 23 games last season because of a knee injury. Hunter was the main defender assigned to Dallas star Luka Doncic and limited him to 18 points on 6-of-17 shooting.
