Brooklyn Nets vs. Atlanta Hawks News and Notes
So far, the only kryptonite for the Super Team in Brooklyn has been the Cavaliers. The Nets have gone 4-2 since acquiring James Harden with their only losses on both ends of a back-to-back in Cleveland. Their debut as the Big Three came in Game 1 vs. the Cavs, which Cleveland gutted out in double overtime over the mighty Nets. That was the first time Brooklyn has Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Harden in the lineup together. KD sat out the rematch, which Harden, Irving, and the Nets dropped 125-113. The Grande Trio was back at it for their two-game set against a shorthanded Heat team, taking both games on Saturday and Monday.
So far, it seems Harden has been the guy to defer on the offensive end. The former Rocket has averaged just 18 points in his past four, including a season-low 12-point performance against Miami on Saturday. Harden’s first two games with the Nets, where he scored 32 and 34 points, were a far cry from what’s been happening of late. The common thread was there was no Kyrie in those first two games needing his touches. Harden has upped his setup role though averaging 11.3 assists per game since joining the Nets.
Irving is putting up nearly 30 points per game since his return, including a season-low 16 in a defensive battle where neither team scored 100 against Miami on Monday. Durant’s scoring hasn’t been hurt either as KD is averaging 32.2 per game since Harden joined the team, including his season-low of 20-points coming in that low-scoring affair with the Heat. The slow-paced game aside, it’s not surprising to see the Nets rank second in the NBA in both points scored and team field goal percentage.
Atlanta started the month terribly, winning just once in their first five and two of their first eight in January. Funny enough, the Hawks started the year on a good note beating these Nets by 18 on New Year’s Day. Atlanta held Nets’ starters outside of Durant and Irving to just 22 points and kept the team under the century mark.
Since their rough start to the month, the Hawks have banged off wins in four of their past five games, including an impressive victory over the Clippers on Tuesday. Trae Young led the way for Atlanta torching LA for a game-high 38 points or 35 percent of the Hawks offense. Atlanta’s bench scored just 11 points, so Young’s offensive outburst was a necessity.
Young’s been bursting out a lot lately. The second-year guard is coming off games of 38 in a win against the Pistons and a season-high 43 in a Timberwolves beatdown. For those keeping scores, that’s a ridiculous scoring average of almost 40 a game in his past three. Young will have a great chance to keep up the torrid pace facing a Nets defense allowing the sixth-most points in the league.
Cam Reddish will be a game-time decision for the Hawks after sitting out last night against the Clippers with an Achilles issue. While Atlanta should have the rest of their regulars, make sure you check back closer to tip-off since this is the second leg of a back-to-back for the Hawks.
The over has come through in the Nets past four road games, while Atlanta has gone under in 11 of their past 13 overall. Brooklyn has covered just once in their past four games, while the Hawks have covered in four of five and four-straight home games. Head-to-head, Atlanta has had the edge of late, covering three straight over Brooklyn, including both of their meeting this season.
