It’s an Eastern Conference showdown on Sunday afternoon at Barclays Center. The Atlanta Hawks come to town to take on the Brooklyn Nets.
The Nets have won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Atlanta Hawks came into this season expected to be one of the worst teams in the NBA, and although they now come into this game with a 1-1 record, they really could be 2-0.
In their last game against the Hornets they were up by ten points at points during the first half, but then the lack of talent in the second half showed up and they ended up losing 109-91.
The one thing that this team is probably going to have issues with is scoring points. When it’s crunch time they really don’t have a guy who you know will make a big bucket.
The clear leader for this team is Dennis Schroder who has been strong so far this season. He comes into this game averaging 26.5 points per game.
If the Hawks want to win this game, a couple of things is going to need to happen. They need to play well on the defensive side of the ball.
The Nets can put up a lot of points, but the Hawks won’t be able to keep up if this game is a shootout, so they need to try and slow down the pace in this game and make it a half court game.
On the other side of this match up is the Brooklyn Nets who also are expected to be one of the worst teams in the league, and that is even more likely after losing their starting guard Jeremy Lin to a knee injury for the rest of the year.
The Brooklyn Nets have made their plan very clear through the first two games. They aren’t going to play much defense and they are going to play a fast paced game.
At the end of the game they are going to hope that you weren’t able to keep up with them offensively and that will win them the game.
They come into this game averaging 128.5 points per game.
To win this game it’s pretty simple, they need to push the pace as fast as possible and hope that is enough to win the game.
It’s especially critical that they push the pace against a team like the Hawks that isn’t great on the offensive side of the court.
