Spurs’ season: San Antonio has a great mix of youth and experience, they are led by DeMar DeRozan who has become more than a scorer in the league. San Antonio is lucky to have a youth core of DeJoutne Murray and Keldon Johnson who are becoming reliable players for a squad that has decent depth. They are hanging onto the 8th spot in the NBA standings for Western Conference.
Hawks’ season: Atlanta has hit strides since March and remains in contention for Playoffs, but will need to mount an effective campaign to reach there.

Young has been in subliminal form this season and he is one of the most mouth-watering shooters and playmakers in the league. His sniper-like shooting and dime dropping has enabled Hawks to acquire an average record and he has made sure that they remain in the Playoffs hunt.
