(37-29) Atlanta Hawks vs. San Antonio Spurs (51-14)
The San Antonio Spurs crushed the Golden State Warriors in their last outing, winning the game 107-85, while out in Atlanta the Hawks also came away victors, beating the Memphis Grizzlies 107-90.
Besides a couple of good quarters of play, Memphis had no answer to keeping up with the Atlanta Hawks offensive attack.
That’s why the team only scored 90 points on the night. But it was the way in which they did it that put them behind.
Memphis just couldn’t get the lid of the basket for most of the game, going 5 for 29 from deep (17.2%). Those putrid shooting percentages held them back all night, but now Atlanta needs to do that again if they hope to earn another “W”.
The Spurs are a fantastic floor spacing team; and from there, they love to move the ball and find the open perimeter shot.
That means Atlanta needs to prevent them from doing that. San Antonio will start piling on points in a hurry if they allow them to do so.
So Atlanta needs to defend the three-point line if they hope to win.
San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs thoroughly outplayed Golden State in their last outing, and the defense they played had a huge part to do with that.
A phenomenal three-point shooting team like Golden State shot just 29.4% from deep. The Spurs refused to allow any easy buckets, so Golden State was held to just 5 three-pointers on the night.
It also helped some that San Antonio held them to 85 points. If they can do that to Atlanta this will be their game for the losing.
Atlanta likes to spread the ball around and keep it moving just like the Spurs. However, the only difference is that they attempt even more three-pointers.
So if San Antonio can contain that part of their game they’ll increase their chances of winning, because Atlanta doesn’t play well when shots aren’t falling for them.
