ATL vs SAS Dream11: Atlanta Hawks are in action for the first time in five days as they prepare to host San Antonio Spurs for the first time this season. This will be the first of three-home stretch for Hawks and will look to improve on their 1-2 record at State Farm Arena (Philips Arena).
But getting the better of Gregg Popovich's team is not just a matter of talent, but discipline. Popovich's team are known for precision and the execution on the court. The team may not be having an absolute superstar like James Harden, Kawhi Leonard or LeBron James, who can score for fun, but Spurs are not very hard to score against.
That said, Spurs come into this match on the back of a 96-103 home defeat against Los Angeles Lakers, their 2nd in the last three games. Hawks are 9th in the Eastern Conference and are without a win in the last two games.

Atlanta Hawks News:
The four-day break couldn't have come sooner for Hawks after the injury to Trae Young. But the reports say that Hawks' leading goal scorer this season may be fit to play here.
Hawks have upgraded Young as questionable, which means, he will be monitored before the game.
Still, the Hawks have a lengthy list at the moment with three first-team players still on the sideline. Allen Crabbe (knee) and Chandler Parsons (knee) remain out on the sideline due to injuries, while Evan Turner (Achilles) is the latest player to head to the treatment room.

San Antonio Spurs' defence will be the key here, but Atlanta have in-form players who can hurt the 2014 NBA champions. That said, Popovich's team is more talented on paper and will start the game as favorites.
