Atlanta’s offense looks superb
Not only have the Hawks been winning regularly lately, but they also have arguably the best offense in the league at the moment. In the previous three games, for example, the Hawks scored at least 131 points per game. Phenomenal result connected, first of all, to the phenomenal form of the point guard Trae Young.
In the last game, Young scored 30 points and dished out 9 assists while his team outscored the powerful Cleveland 131-107. Atlanta ranks eighth in the East with a 40-37 balance. The 9th and 10th teams in the conference, Charlotte and Brooklyn, have the same numbers.
Brooklyn failed to handle Milwaukee again
And, as in game seven of last season's playoff series, in overtime. 119-120 (110-110) was the Nets' home loss. Kevin Durant scored 26 points and made 11 assists, only to miss the decisive shot to win in the end.
Brooklyn find themselves in a tough spot. If they stay 10th in the conference, they will have to win two straight road games to make the playoffs. Otherwise, Steve Nash's team can forget about the playoffs this season.
- Atlanta: John Collins will not play. Jalen Johnson is questionable;
- Brooklyn: Ben Simmons, Joe Harris will not play.
The score in the season series is 1-1.

It's hard to say who will win the upcoming game. Atlanta has a brilliant Trae Young, and overall Nate McMillan's team is more balanced than Brooklyn. However, the Nets have Kevin Durant and now Kyrie Irving as well, basketball players capable of solving the outcome of the game alone. Let's look at totals here – after all, the offense of both teams have been impressive lately.
