Atlanta Hawks 's Latest Performance :
The Hawks will return home after a winless road trip they handed the Cavs their first win of the season despite the lost Trey Young had a good game as he hit 9-of-13 for 24 points, four assists. He finally broke through his small slump shooting just 29% although it was against the Cavs it was still solid to see him comfortable shooting the ball. Alex Len had a season-high 22 points in a losing effort against the Cavs. Len was a perfect 9-of-9 from the field and hit 3-of-6 free throws, the question is can he remain consistent. Jemery Lin had his best game as a Hawks by dropping 12 points and dished out eight dimes. Playing against the Kings we will be able to see Trae Young going up against Fox as it should be a great showdown between the two guards.

Against The Spread Selection: Sacramento Kings
My reason for the pick :
The Kings will be able to win their sixth game of the season and their 5th game in a row. The Kings are off to a 6-3 start to begin the year. They will get it done with their defense on the road. Fox should be ready to go as he has recovered from his back injury. For the Hawks, they will drop their 5th game in a row. Trae Young will have a good game but the Kings team defense will prove to be too much for the Hawks. It is just a matter of time that Trae Young figures out the NBA defenders are playing him.
The Kings will win their 5th game in a row to start off their season 3 games above .500.
