The Hawks were beaten thoroughly in their own building by the Raptors on Wednesday night. Toronto used its typical balanced attack to route Atlanta. Fred Van Vleet led the way with 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
They’re starting to call him Kyle Lowry lite in Toronto.
John Collins had 13 points and 16 rebounds in just 26 minutes in the loss. People are calling him a snub, along with some of Toronto’s young foreigners for the Rising Stars Challenge but that’s just what people do the day after the participants are announced.
Collins would represent Team USA in that Rising Stars Competition, though he spent a lot of time overseas as a youth. His father served in the Navy and his mother in the Air Force.
Collins spent time living in Guam, the Virgin Islands and Turkey as a result.
Charlotte lost another game on its home court on Wednesday. This time, the Hornets fell to the Pelicans, 101–96. Dwight Howard led all scorers with 22 points and all rebounders with 16.
The Pelicans didn’t get an AD or Boogie explosion but both turned in good enough nights in the team win.
This was a five-point loss but there was a stat making its way around Twitter last night: the Hornets are 2–19 in games decided by four points or less this season.
Steve Clifford had Kemba Walker and most of the other starters on the bench in crunch time last night, which obviously didn’t work. Some Charlotte fans are blaming that dismal record in close games on coaching.
Charlotte’s starting five of Walker, Williams, Batum, Kidd-Gilchrist and Howard have the second-best +/- of all lineups in the month of January.
Now, a lot of that has to do with the minutes they’ve logged (186, which is the most among all lineups this month) but that could also mean they could be just as equally negative so at least the lineup Clifford is using the most is getting results.
They are also way behind the top lineup, which is Minnesota’s five of Tyus Jones and Taj Gibson alongside its big three.
