Atlanta has gotten off to a hot start. They were supposed to be missing guys like Al Horford but they have gotten out of the gate strongly.
The Knicks are right where they are supposed to be languishing below .500. The question is can they ever put a run together.
The early slot on an NFL Sunday is a hard one to gain interest in this one. Maybe the line is soft.
The Hawks have turned over some face but they are once again using a total team approach to achieve success. That group is led by underrated veteran Paul Milsap.
Milsap leads the team in scoring and not far behind him is new PG Denis Schroeder.
Next down the line in scoring we have free agent acquisition Dwight Howard. He has been productive even though he is not playing the kind of minutes he used to. He leads the team in rebounding. His specialty skill.
Next down the line we have wings Kent Bazemore and Tim Hardaway Jr. Both could be shooting it better but they know how to pick their spots.
Finally, there is Mike Muscala, one of the most efficient players in the NBA right now. He scores an even 10 points in 21 minutes per game.
All six of those players are double figure scorers giving the Hawks enviable depth.
New York Knicks
At their best the Knicks can be very good. Carmelo Anthony might be the best pure scorer in the league. Kristaps Porzingis can be hard to handle and even Derrick Rose has his moments.
The challenge is channeling that game after game after game. Plus getting some contributions from the other players that happen to fill out the court. It has been a struggle.
Anthony and Porzingis are one of just a few duos both averaging more than 20ppg. Both are capable of getting hot and carrying the team too…and have.
I suppose the same goes for Rose who is coming off his best game of the season with 27 points at Washington. Perhaps he was inspired by taking on John Wall.
After those three it is hard to know where the points are going to come from and this group is definitely not a defensive one.
Joakim Noah leads in rebounding but is scoring just 4pps in 20+ minutes. He just doesn’t shoot much and you have to wonder if the fact his free throw percentage is at an all time low is messing with him a little bit.
New York has the pieces to be a .500 team but picking spots where they will win is tough.
