This Tuesday night matchup will see the Atlanta Hawks take on the Denver Nuggets.
Last season, these two teams split the season series, with the home team winning each game.
The Hawks battled back the other night in Portland and sent the game to overtime where they ultimately lost. The score to this game was 124-113. They have now lost three-games in a row.
The Hawks are clearly missing John Collins, who was suspended the other week for violating the NBA PED policy. He is currently serving a 25-game suspension. Collins was averaging 17 points per game through 5 games, so losing him really hurts this Atlanta team.
Trae Young is leading the scoring for Atlanta, averaging 26.2 points per game. Jabari Parker has also stepped up nicely replacing Collins main role and he is averaging 17.6 points per game.
As a team, the Hawks are one of the lowest scoring teams in the NBA. They are averaging 104.4 points per game. This ranks 26th. They shoot 45.5% from the field (16th) and 29% from three-point range (29th).
Their defense however, has been surprisingly good, ranking 12th in the league in points allowed per game. They allow just 108.9 points per game. They allow opponents to shoot 44.2% from the field (12th) and 33.5% from the three-point line (8th).
Somehow the Hawks are going to have to get a body on Nikola Jokic. If they slow him down, there is a chance they could come away with a win.
The Nuggets have started the season hot and have now won four-games in a row. They most recently beat Minnesota 100-98 in overtime.
The Denver offense is scoring even less than the Hawks this season which is surprising. They score 103.3 points per game, ranking 27th in the league. They do not even shoot the ball very well, averaging 42.9% from the field, which ranks 26th. Their three-point shooting is better as they average 35.8% and rank 14th.
Jamal Murray is the leading scorer, but is scoring just 18.8 points per game. Jokic is second with 16.7 points per game, but he also averages 9.3 rebounds per game, while also leading the team with 6.0 assists per game.
The Nuggets defense is their strength and what has led them to a 7-2 start. They allow an average of 100.3 points per game, which ranks 4th in the NBA. Denver allows their opponents to shoot 42.1% from the field (6th) and 30.5% from the three-point line (4th).
During their four-game win streak, they have allowed 92.8 points per game. In their two losses, they have allowed 115.5 points per game. The Hawks do not have enough scoring ability with Collins to score more than 115.5, so keep them under this number should be rather easy.
