Atlanta lost the big last-place game from the other night. The Hawks went into the Staples Center and lost by 20 to the Lakers. They couldn’t stop LA, which ended up putting up over 130 points.
That didn’t really seem to bother the Hawks, who are just rolling with the punches at this point. This is their midway point. Imagine getting ready for the second half of your season after winning ten games in the first half. It must be a bit of a deflating feeling.
Atlanta could either completely pack it in and losing 35 games in the second half, or it could improve just slightly. If the Hawks can maintain energy, they could score some cheap wins against older teams that start falling out of things in the second half and have just given up. They’ll feel like empty wins, though, especially for a team that would love the #1 overall pick.
Denver did play a lot better after its embrrassing loss against the Sacramento Kings over the weekend. It went into Golden State and played competitively until the end, despite Steph Curry raining threes from all over the court. At one point, he pulled up from 40 with a hand in his face and still drained it.
Nikola Jokic had a triple-double in the loss. He and Trey Lyles, who is the second most efficient three-point shooter in the NBA, have been playing well in the front court. So well that Mike Malone has struggled to give Kenneth Faried appropriate minutes, even with Paul Millsap out. It has prompted Nuggets fans to consider trading a guy who has been a fan favorite for a long time in Denver.
Faried is the longest tenured Nugget, drafted by the team in 2011 after a standout career at Morehead State, where he finished with more than 1600 rebounds in his career.
His hustle and energy quickly made him a fan favorite, but the reality is that the Nuggets play better without him, when they can space the floor and add another shooter on the floor. My question, is what team wouldn’t be better without him on the floor? He’s a bit of an obsolete commodity in today’s NBA.
