Atlanta Hawks Form
The Hawks are having a poor season. Moreover, they will not be part of the playoffs as they are on the 12th spot in the Eastern Conference. However, this does not mean that this team is not capable of playing some good basketball. On the contrary, they showed a strong character as the beat a strong Bucks in the last game in overtime. All in all, the Hawks are a young team and certainly, they will improve next season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hawks score an average of 113 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 11th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.1 boards per game and 28.5 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the game, the Hawks concede an average of 118.8 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 30th spot in the league in scoring defence.
San Antonio Spurs Form
The Spurs are involved in a tight contest for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. However, they are facing a swift competition from the Thunder as they are on the same number of wins heading into today’s games. Yet, this team is not playing well as they lost in their last game which was against the Kings. Aso, they have now suffered 4 defeats in their last 6 games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Spurs score an average of 111.8 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 17th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 44.7 boards per game combined with 24.6 assists per night. On the defensive side, this Spurs team is conceding an average of 110.4 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 13th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Hawks managed to pull a surprise win against the Bucks in their last game. It was a great effort from a team that suffered all season long. However, without taking anything form Atlanta, the Bucks went into this game with a firm led in the Eastern Division. Therefore, their motivation to win this game might not have been at the top level. On the other side, the Spurs need to win this game if they want to keep up with the Thunder for the final playoff spot. They are the better team and I expect them to win this one. Take San Antionio in this game.
