Hawks' bench potent compliment behind defense, mindset

ATLANTA -- Naturally, it's the Hawks offensive approach that draws the most comparisons to the Spurs, where coach Mike Budenholzer studied for 19 years. As LeBron James said a month ago, Atlanta's sets are "identical" to those of Greg Popovich. But as the Pacers' Frank Vogel sees it, the influence of the San Antonio system goes even deeper.

Are the Atlanta Hawks the 'Spurs East'?
