SAS vs ATL Dream11: In this game, two cross-conference teams in San Antonio Spurs and Atlanta Hawks fight it out against each other. The Spurs are struggling right now and are way below a winning record. Meanwhile, the Hawks come into this game after winning five games in a row at their home floor after having a slow start earlier.
The Spurs are rebuilding right now and shipped off veterans like Aldridge and DeRozan. The losing record comes as no surprise since the team is inexperienced and doesn’t have a bonafide All-Star in the team. Hawks looked unmotivated to start the season as said by their own Point Guard Trae Young but the team woke up during the homestand and the play of Clint Capela and John Collins has been a huge factor too. Now, the Hawks will look to get something going on the road.
Host: San Antonio Spurs
Visitors: Atlanta Hawks
Match Timing: 25 November, @ 08:00 AM
Venue: AT & T Center
Spurs: Scoring is alright, defense struggles
Spurs have been in good touch in terms of offense. White, Poeltl, Johnson, Vassell, and Walker are all capable of scoring 15-20 points on a regular basis and despite the youth, the Spurs generate a ton of offense. It is the defensive end where the team struggles and gives opponents way too much open shots. These shortcomings at the defense are the prime reason why the team is struggling right now.
Hawks: They were the Conference Finalists after all
Hawks looked out-of-sorts to start the season but have performed better recently. Trae has got his perimeter shooting going recently, he is a superb playmaker who can set up his frontline of John Collins and Capela for some easy shots. There is no doubt that the play of Kevin Huerter has been impressive too and his 10-15 points, 5-10 assists per game on average has made a huge difference. Atlanta looks locked and loaded right now.
