The Hawks and Suns are two of the most tank-tastic teams in the NBA this season. Although the Hawks were considered by many the worst team entering the year, Phoenix has taken that title with more than half of the 2018-19 campaign in the rearview.
Trae Young hasn’t had the rookie year many expected he would, but what people aren’t realizing when they look at his stat sheets is that he’s doing quite a bit to make up for lackluster three-point shooting numbers.
In particular, the young point guard is facilitating at a very high rate. He’s a bit turnover prone as he learns the NBA pace in his first year, but he’s getting his teammates involved, which is something not a lot of scouts thought to highlight as he was preparing for the draft.
Against Phoenix, Atlanta needs to buckle down on defense and focus on the role players. Deandre Ayton is going to get his double-double and Devin Booker could go for 30-plus. But here’s the thing: those things will happen regardless of whether the Hawks play single coverage or double team.
Allowing the two stars to get their numbers won’t kill you. Letting subpar scorers like Josh Jackson get involved in a meaningful way will.
The Suns need to execute on Saturday with a similar strategy in mind. John Collins and Trae Young can go off for big games at any moment. Young, in particular, can be streaky in a way that is very, very good for the Hawks when his long ball is finding the bottom of the cup.
If the Suns get worried about that, though, they’ll risk letting the rest of a very bad basketball get open looks.
Give Young and Collins whatever it takes to keep the role players down.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
The Hawks and Suns won’t be what most national broadcasts are talking about on Saturday, but the game will have some high stakes as far as lottery positioning goes.
I know that doesn’t make for a necessarily good game, but even bad basketball can result in close final scores.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hawks ATS
These games are always tough to bet on with confidence because both teams are so bad you just never know who’s gonna stink more.
I this case, though, it should be the Suns who are going for their 10th straight loss.
Atlanta gets a straight up victory on the road.
