The Hawks have been alternating wins and losses lately while losing more. The Hawks have won only 3 of their previous eight games, dropping to ninth place in the Eastern Conference. There is still room for Atlanta to fall: Chicago is just one win behind. So far, the Hawks' style of play has not improved much. The change of coach was more of a jolt to the players. Under the new one, Trae Young has become more effective on offense. But Dejounte Murray has slowed down: he's hitting just 42.4% of his shots in the last month, the worst rate among starting five. At least the roster is fine. Only Jalen Johnson, who would not have been fielded, is injured.
Quin Snyder's team fell short against Memphis in their last game, 119-123. The Hawks struggled in the paint and conceded just over half of their points from there. Long-distance shots did not go in at all. Seven of their 31 attempts were unsuccessful. Trae Young had a good game, scoring 28 points and making ten assists. Onyeka Okongwu and Clint Capela also play great, but the rest of the team shot around 40%.
The LeBron James era is slowly leaving Cleveland. For the first time in nearly 20 years, the team made the playoffs when LeBron was no longer on the lineup. The Cavaliers have built a decent roster. The thing is not to screw up the role players. Isaac Okoro, who has secured a spot in the rotation, is the most excited about his supporting players of late. However, he may not play against Atlanta due to knee problems. The participation of Dean Wade and Jarrett Allen is also questionable. Danny Green will not be on the floor due to an illness.
J.B. Bickerstaff's team has won four straight. Having beaten Washington, Cleveland defeated Brooklyn twice and the day before didn't leave a chance for Houston, 108-91. No one from the reserve players made the same difference as Donovan Mitchell, Jarrett Allen, Isaac Okoro, Darius Garland, and Evan Mobley. Only Mitchell and LeVert made long-range shots, while Allen was the highest-scoring player for Cleveland with 24 points.
Expert Betting Tips
Atlanta needs a win, but we don't know how. There are enough problems on defense, and the combination play is not always up to par. At the beginning of the game against Memphis, the Hawks looked weak, and surprisingly, they managed to keep the intrigue alive until the fourth quarter. Cleveland leads the defense for a reason, although it will be more difficult for them if Isaac Okoro and Jarrett Allen don't play. Surely the Cavaliers would like to get even for their last play-in loss, so their motivation should be high.
