Late for work? Hawks CEO has you covered

The Atlanta Hawks cruised past the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night at Staples Center, and fans of the Eastern Conference leader surely stayed up well past their bedtimes to catch their team taking it to one of the West's top contenders.

In case their bosses weren't hoops fans, Hawks CEO Steve Koonin came to the rescue with the perfect excuse ... and free tickets!
