NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Big game for the Hawks

The Hawks lost the first battle against the Heat by 24 points. Trae Young shot 0 out of 7 from three and committed 6 turnovers. On the other hand, Bogdan Bogdanovic shot 0 out of 8 as well and these two are the main shooters, which meant that the Hawks shot below 30% from the three-point line. The Hawks also committed 18 turnovers in total. 

The Heat shot 47% from three and overcame poor shooting nights by Herro and Adebayo. However, the most inconsistent shooter of the team, Duncan Robinson, was a huge factor, as he shot eight out of nine threes. The Heat also razzled and dazzled with 35 assists. Jimmy Butler did a great job with 21 points while Lowry dished 9 assists as the starting Point Guard.

Danilo Gallinari and De’Andre Hunter did well while John Collins saw limited minutes after returning from injury. However, this Hawks team will surely need Trae to at least 20 points and shoot better than 39% from the floor. Kevin Huerter also scored just 8 points and the Hawks will need to score at a higher rate. They scored just 60 points in three quarters.

Fantasy-related tips

The Hawks are highly reliant on Trae Young and he will need to stack up more points and assists. Among the floater-level fantasy players, De’Andre Hunter, Kevin Huerter, John Collins, and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Among these, Bogdanovic is perhaps the most consistent scorer and he can be a viable option even after shooting a 0/8 night.

The Heat has three major players Tyler Herro, Bam Adebayo, and Jimmy Butler.  Butler is the major all-around threat but Herro can also fill it up at an incredible rate. Duncan Robinson can be an interesting choice after a strong shooting night. Tucker and Strus can be used as the filler-type players in the lineup too, but Tucker isn’t as consistent offensively.

Player Performance Predictions
Highest scorer: Tyler Herro: 27
Top assists deliverer: Trae Young: 9
Top Rebounder: Bam Adebayo: 12
Scoreline Prediction: Heat: 120   Hawks 106

Points: 06
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 05
Steals: 01
Blocks: 01
Center Bam will be key again as the man in the middle but he is “QUESTIONABLE” for the game and he will be a huge factor especially on the defensive end if he plays. If he does play, I expect a 16-22 points, 7-12 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range. He can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 34-48

Trae Young(ATL)
Points: 08
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 04
Steals: 02

Jimmy Butler(MIA)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 04

Tyler Herro(MIA)
Points: 06

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-45

Bogdan Bogdanovic(ATL)
Points: 06
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 02

Off-guard Bogdan has been doing his job on the offensive end but has the tendency to drift away efficiency-wise at times. However, I expect much better than a 0/8 shooting night and a 15-22 points range from the Guard.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33

Points: 17
