ATLANTA - One of the worst teams in the NBA caught the ailing Denver Nuggets at the perfect time.
The Hawks took advantage of tired legs and a razor-thin bench and handed the Nuggets (17-9) their second consecutive loss Saturday night. Denver concluded its five-game road trip with a dispiriting 106-98 loss to the Hawks, who improved to 6-20.

Collins, who on his current pace will have a chance at being an All-Star reserve, recorded 16 points in the first half.
