Young exudes confidence.
The Atlanta Hawks made a big splash last offseason when they acquired Dejounte Murray (196 cm, G). However, the team didn’t quite gel, winning 41 games and making it to the playoffs, where they defeated the Miami Heat to earn the No. 7 seed, only to lose to the Celtics in Boston.
After a somewhat disappointing season, Atlanta didn’t make any major changes this offseason. They traded away John Collins (208 cm, F), but didn’t make any other major moves. Collins’ absence was not a big one. The younger players have stepped up.
Atlanta got off to a somewhat disappointing start, losing their first two games after opening night. However, they turned things around with a 17-point blowout win over heavy favorites Milwaukee. They then went on a four-game winning streak, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves, Washington Wizards, and New Orleans Falcons.
The only loss came to the Western Conference dark horse Oklahoma City Thunder. The team’s record is 4-3. They’re in fourth place in the East. Murray had 29 points and six assists, and ace Trey Young (185 cm, G) had 22 points and 11 assists, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the team from losing.
Young, however, was unfazed by the loss. “We didn’t start well,” he told Bali Sports, “but we still managed to go on a winning streak. But we haven’t shown everything yet. We have a lot to show in our offense and defense. That’s a positive aspect of our team.” 보스토토 도메인
Young, meanwhile, has had a somewhat disappointing time this season. He’s averaging 21.7 points and 10.4 assists per game. However, he’s shooting 33% from the field and 27% from three-point range, which is well below average. Atlanta will need Young to shoot more accurately if they want to reach higher.
