Reacts: Who is the favorite for MVP?

Reacts: Who is the favorite for MVP?

Photo by Adam Hagy/NBAE via Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young has already locked down an All-Star starting spot. Can he enter the NBA MVP race? So far, fans don’t seem to think so. Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic leads the way to this point with 27% of the vote despite Stephen Curry being the Vegas favorite. It could be argued that Jokic won’t have the wins and Curry won’t have the stats compared to other guys on that graphic like Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo. For Young to truly enter the conversation, the Hawks would essentially have to stop...

The Atlanta Hawks may be able to turn the Celtics offense into hero ball

If the Atlanta Hawks (22-25) want to win their sixth game in a row on Friday, they will need to make their opponent, the Boston Celtics, play a certain type of game. Riding the wave of their own momentum, as well as that of Trae Young’s second All-Star starting nod, the Hawks should want Jayson Tatum […] The Atlanta Hawks may be able to turn the Celtics offense into hero ball - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Atlanta Hawks rookie Jalen Johnson is showing consistency with the Skyhawks

The Atlanta Hawks appear to have done it again with their drafting late in the first round. When Jalen Johnson fell to Hawks at the 20th pick, they simply had to take him. While he is struggling to get minutes with the varsity squad, he is settling into a consistent time with the College Park […] Atlanta Hawks rookie Jalen Johnson is showing consistency with the Skyhawks - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Preview: Hawks host Celtics, look to continue winning streak

Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via The Atlanta Hawks (22-25) will host the Boston Celtics (25-24) on Friday night. The Hawks come in riding at five-game win streak after their win over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. Atlanta continues to try to climb up the Eastern Conference standings after slipping out of the gates this season. The Celtics are probably another team who thought they’d be off to a better start. Boston sits as the No. 8 seed in the East, just two games ahead of the Hawks back at No. 12. The Celtics have the fourth-best point differential in...

The Lou Williams/Onyeka Okongwu connection is growing for the Atlanta Hawks

When the Atlanta Hawks took Onyeka Okongwu with the sixth pick in the NBA draft they knew they had a good one. He was seen as a defender who excelled in the pick and roll, both areas where the Hawks needed help last season. Ex-head coach Lloyd Pierce missed opportunities to develop Okongwu but this […] The Lou Williams/Onyeka Okongwu connection is growing for the Atlanta Hawks - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Grading Bogdan Bogdanovic’s return for the Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks welcomed back Bogdan Bogdanovic to their lineup against the Sacramento Kings which meant that they had no player on the injury list. This has not happened since Janury of 2020, two years ago. When he first hit the court Bogdanovic looked a little rusty. He missed his first free throw attempt before […] Grading Bogdan Bogdanovic’s return for the Atlanta Hawks - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog
