Atlanta Hawks: Mock Draft at the Halfway Point of 2018-19 Season

It’s time for the second mock draft of the season for the Atlanta Hawks. At the beginning of the season, it looked as if the Atlanta Hawks would be, as expected, one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Hawks sputtered out of the gate without the team’s most impactful player, John Collins, and […] Atlanta Hawks: Mock Draft at the Halfway Point of 2018-19 Season - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Atlanta Hawks: John Collins making a leap in year 2

Atlanta Hawks big man John Collins has followed up an impressive rookie season with an impressive sophomore campaign in 2018-19. When the Atlanta Hawks selected Wake Forest big man John Collins with the 19th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the team probably hoped that he would eventually develop into a solid complementary piece that […] Atlanta Hawks: John Collins making a leap in year 2 - Hoops Habit - Hoops Habit - NBA News, Rumors, Analysis, Opinion and Stats

Why Kevin Huerter is the perfect backcourt mate for Trae Young

Why Kevin Huerter is the perfect backcourt mate for Trae Young

A look at how a pair of rookies fit together on the court after their first half-season. Tuesday night, when the Oklahoma City Thunder came into State Farm Arena, few could have expected what happened to take place. Atlanta exploded for 142 points in an upset win, with 67 of them coming from the “big three” of Trae Young, Kevin Huerter and John Collins. For the second time in five days, the Hawks’ young core did the heavy lifting in a take-down of one of the NBA’s elite franchises, and for a night, looked elite themselves. When the Atlanta Hawks selected sophomore shooting guard...

How Taurean Prince will fit in with the Hawks when he returns

How Taurean Prince will fit in with the Hawks when he returns

The third-year forward should be back on the floor soon. The Atlanta Hawks are now 13-29 for the season and currently No. 12 in the Eastern Conference. As compared to the rest of the league, the Hawks are still firmly in the basement, but this year isn’t about the wins and losses that can be shown in the standings. Rookies Trae Young and Kevin Huerter are starting to figure out how to be serviceable NBA players. Sophomore John Collins has taken an enormous leap from his rookie season and is averaging close to a 20-point double-double. Despite their overall record, they’ve found ways...

Preview: Hawks look to avenge recent blowout against Bucks

Back at home for a matinee against a (very) good team. The Atlanta Hawks put together a memorable performance on Friday evening, stealing a road win over the Philadelphia 76ers behind strong play from Kevin Huerter and John Collins. After a travel day on Saturday, the Hawks face a quick turnaround, as the Milwaukee Bucks arrive for a Sunday matinee at State Farm Arena. In another notable showing (for all the wrong reasons), the Hawks recently flopped against the Bucks, with a disastrous first quarter setting the stage for a blowout defeat. However, there have been plenty of encouraging...

Kevin Huerter and John Collins shine in Hawks win over 76ers

An impressive victory. The Atlanta Hawks are in the midst of a brutal January schedule. The team entered play in Philadelphia on Friday night set to face the Philadelphia 76ers, a squad that possessed the best home record in the league. Atlanta suffered a 21-point loss in October during their first visit to Wells Fargo Center. With that as the backdrop, a win for the visitors looked unlikely even after it was announced, before the tip-off, that All-NBA big man Joel Embiid would not be playing for Philadelphia due to ankle soreness. This Sixers roster is significantly different than the one...

Kevin Huerter and John Collins starred in the upset win for Atlanta. A reunion was on the schedule for the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night. Atlanta head coach Lloyd Pierce spent the last five years in the City of Brotherly Love under Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown, while on the floor two of the players traded for one another over the summer were reunited with old teammates in the Hawks’ Justin Anderson and the 76ers’ Mike Muscala. Muscala made his fourth start in his new home after Joel Embiid was scratched a few minutes before game time with an ankle injury,...
