Video: Mavs’ Luka Doncic blocks Hawks’ Trae Young

Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Luka Doncic and Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young will be compared to one another for the entirety of their careers. That’s what happens when two teams trade one player for another on draft night. Back in June, the Hawks selected Doncic with the third overall pick before sending him to […] The post Video: Mavs’ Luka Doncic blocks Hawks’ Trae Young appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Luka Doncic, Mavs top Trae Young, Hawks in rematch of NBA draft night trade partners

Lubbock-born, Oklahoma-raised and educated Trae Young had about 20 family members and friends in attendance Wednesday night, from both sides of the Red River.Of course, though, he knew better than to consider American Airlines Center anything other than Luka Doncic territory.Young claimed to not have extra motivation, so perhaps it simply was coincidence that he and Doncic traded baskets and acrobatic highlight plays before the Mavericks - after coach Rick Carlisle's ejection - spurted ahead, then held on to beat Atlanta, 114-107, to increase their home winning streak to 11 games.Doncic...

Mavericks get their revenge, down Hawks 114-107 in high-profile rematch

Atlanta stuck around on the road but Dallas was able to finish the game off to split the season series. In the second and final meeting of the season between top picks Luka Doncic and Trae Young (whom you may have heard were traded for one another on draft night), it was Dallas’s turn to host the festivities after the Atlanta Hawks were the home team to open their renovated arena in October. The Hawks kept it close for much of the game, but ultimately fell at the hands of Doncic and the hometown Mavericks by a final score of 114-107. Atlanta was paced by John Collins, who posted 20 points...

Atlanta’s “Chest” series aims to get Kevin Huerter going

Atlanta’s “Chest” series aims to get Kevin Huerter going

Huerter’s struggled to get involved in the offense consistently, so Lloyd Pierce is running a specific play for him. One of the many areas in which the Atlanta Hawks have struggled offensively this season (and there are a lot of them) is finding a balance between Trae Young and the rest of the team. Young’s usage is through the roof, even for a point guard. As the team develops him as their starting point guard of the future, this sort of strategy makes sense – throw him into the fire from the jump and give him as many opportunities to sink or swim as possible, knowing that the...

Atlanta Hawks rookie point guard Trae Young has seen the effects of the rookie wall very early in his NBA career, as he’s struggling to carry the same electric pace he showed during his lone year at the University of Oklahoma with his new NBA team. Young is shooting 37.7 percent on the season and […] The post Austin Rivers compares Trae Young’s struggles to Devin Booker’s workload appeared first on ClutchPoints.

The Golden Breakdown: The next Curry gets a lesson from the one and only Steph Curry

Along with facing the Hawks came the inevitable comparisons between Steph Curry and Trae Young. But there will only be one Steph Curry, and his performance on Monday night showed why that is a fact. The Warriors finally had the kind of night everyone envisioned when Stephen Curry returned from his eleven-game hiatus. Facing a young and inexperienced Atlanta Hawks team that is ranked 19th in defensive rating (110.3 points allowed per 100 possessions), the Warriors were presented with the opportunity of playing their brand of basketball and putting a stop to a six-game losing streak on the...

Collins enjoys career night, Prince goes down in loss to Warriors

Not the best night at State Farm Arena... The Atlanta Hawks fell short on Monday night in their contest against the Golden State Warriors at State Farm Arena, falling 128-111 against the defending champions. John Collins led the way with a career-high of 24 points and also grabbed 11 rebounds on the night. Trae Young scored 20 points but took 20 shots to get there in what was a tough night for the Eastern Conference Player of the Month. For Golden State, as you’d imagine, their trio of Stephen Curry (30 points), Kevin Durant (28 points) and Klay Thompson (27 points) did the most damage...
