Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Atlanta Hawks vs Brooklyn Nets
The Nets will welcome the Hawks to Barclays Center as they were able to pick up their 4th straight win against the Wizards while the Hawks loss against the Celtics in their last game. Game tips off at 3:00 PM ET.
Atlanta Hawks's Latest Performance :
The Hawks will look to bounce back after being blown out by the Celtics in their last game. It was a tough game for them since the Celtics were coming in with winning seven games in a row. Kevin Huerter matched his career-high 19 points with two rebounds, three assists, one block, three steals, and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Celtics on Friday. He was one of the best shooters in the draft. He has assured himself a rotation spot when Taurean Prince comes back, and he may be playing well enough for coach Lloyd Pierce to push Kent Bazemore back to the bench. Trae Young will look to bounce back from a bad shooting as he finished with nine points shooting 2-for-11 from the floor. He needs to develop more and perhaps he should improve his passing skills first before he misses so many shots. He will have to cover Dinwiddie. The Nets are also coming into this game having won four straight. For the Hawks to be successful Trae Young has to play well.
Brooklyn Nets 's Latest Performance :
The Nets are winners of four games in a row they were able to take down the Wizards in their last game. Spencer Dinwiddie scored 27 points off the bench. He is coming off a new three-year, $34 million deal and it looks like the Nets made the right choice of paying him. He looks like he’s going to be a bargain. He has now scored in double figures in 23 straight games he’s appeared in off the bench, which is the second-longest streak in Nets history. Joe Harris scored 19 points and Rodions Kurucs and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 15 each for the Nets. They were plus 21 on the boards against the Wizards it was one of the main reasons that the Nets were able to dominate the game early and never looked back. They are hoping to make it five wins in a row as they will be going up against the Hawks. The Nets will have to rely on Dinwiddie to have another great scoring output as he is currently playing inspired basketball.
