This matchup features the Atlanta Hawks out of the Eastern Conference and the Utah Jazz out of the Western Conference.
This is the first meeting between these two teams this season. Back in March of 2018 the Atlanta Hawks won 99-94 against the Jazz in Utah.
As most thought, the Atlanta Hawks are struggling this year and are 12th in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks are 2-2 on their current road trip with wins over the Bulls and Clippers and losses to the Trail Blazers and Kings.
The Hawks are averaging 110 points this year as an offense. Their standout star is John Collins, who averages 19.3 points per game and 9.9 rebounds per game. He has really taken a step forward in his sophomore season and looks to be promising going forward.
Rookie Trae Young is having a decent year at best. While it is true he is averaging 16.5 points per game and 7.3 assists per game, he is shooting just 40.9% from the field and 29.5% from the three point line. For Trae to become a breakout star, he needs to find his shot more consistently. There has been plenty of times where Young will have a great game one night and then be awful the next. Look for consistency going forward so Trae can prove he was worth trading for.
The biggest problem for the Hawks this season is their defense. They allow an average of 117.9 points per game. This is dead last in the league. Look for the Hawks to focus on slowing down Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert if they want to win.
The Jazz saw their three game winning streak come to an end when they were blown out by Portland. They are now 7th in the West and will be looking to move up with a win.
The Jazz offense is average at best since they only score 108.6 points per game. Look for Donovan Mitchell to be a thorn in the Hawks side and give his team a great chance to win.
The Jazz defense has been their greatest strength this season. They only allow an average of 105.7 points per game, which is 5th best in the league. Furthermore, they do a great job at limiting teams from rebounding. Only allowing 42.8 rebounds per game is 3rd in the NBA. If the Jazz control the boards, they will win this game.
