The Hawks shot 48 percent from the floor as well, but things did not go the way they wanted. Atlanta was unsuccessful from three point land in the loss. The Hawks shot 29 percent from three point range and had 17 turnovers. This can’t happen against the Cavaliers.

He is averaging 20.4 points per game this season. Aside from Schroder, Atlanta has five other players scoring in double figures. Rookie Taurean Prince is averaging a solid 12.6 points per game for the Hawks.
Defensively, the Hawks are allowing 108 points per game this year. Good enough for 25th in the NBA this season. Prince is a defensive presence for the Hawks, but Kent Bazemore leads the team in steals with two per game.
The Hawks will have to play almost perfect against a the best team in the east tonight if they want a win.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Cavaliers rank 20th in the NBA in points allowed this season.
