Photo: Mark Richt And Mark Fox Show Support For Hawks, Pose With Dominique Wilkins Statue

The Atlanta Hawks are the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, but find themselves in a dogfight with the eighth-seeded Brooklyn Nets. The Hawks dropped Game 4 last night, 120-115 in overtime, as the Nets tied the series.

Perhaps Georgia head football coach Mark Richt and head basketball coach Mark Fox feel the hometown favorites could use some more moral support. The duo was photographed outside Phillips Arena, the Hawks' home court, posing with the statue of NBA legend Dominique Wilkins, a UGA alum. Richt is holding a flag with the awesome Pac-Man-style Hawk logo, while Fox is stuck with a foam finger, which isn't as cool.

 Atlanta and Brooklyn square off again tomorrow night, so we'll see if Richt and Fox's support will have been worth it.
