6th consecutive victory and the start of a nice message, the Falcons are back

This Wednesday, the Hawks traveled to San Antonio in the hope of enhancing their streak of 5 straight victories. A mission not least yet brilliantly fulfilled, which leads us to believe that the Hawks are indeed out of vacation. We look at the subject, and we debrief.

The pretty homemade boxscore, it’s HERE!

How do you put up with the Hawks while keeping yourself from going completely binary? After a series of six consecutive losses, the Falcons then had a few successes until, on Wednesday, they went to battle in Texas with five straight wins. This irregularity in the results is explained by the Atlanta schedule, simply ruthless during the first slump: Nets, Jazz, Suns, Warriors, Jazz and Nuggets. Difficult to take a victory, but also to recover from this period during which we eat a few spankings. If we want to push the optimistic delirium a little further, this black series has really served. This Wednesday, the Hawks managed their meeting perfectly against Spurs, taking advantage of each quarter to slip a small lead into the teeth of Gregg Popovich’s men. A demonstration of seriousness revealing an excellent Georgian dynamic. Obviously, we do not reach the Conference Finals in the wind and the group, almost unchanged, would inevitably turn on the engine at some point. In Texas, eight Atlanta players – John Collins, Clint Capela, Trae Young, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kevin Huerter, Danilo Gallinari, Cam Reddish and Lou Williams – posed a minima 10 points and thus reflect the return of this beautiful collective alchemy which made the strength of the Falcons last season. Yes, we feel that everything is starting again (poke Sirius Black).

Much like the Hawks’ form at the moment, the game against Spurs was also exponential. This 38-25 inflicted in the third quarter got the better of Texans totally confused by the multitude of offensive options available to the Georgians. When Trae Young – monumental with 31 points, 7 rebounds and 11 assists at 14/22 shooting – embarks on a drive, it becomes very complicated to cover all the space created as well as to watch the rouquemoutes which camp the corners. We think of Kevin Huerter, Bogdan Bogdanovic or Danilo Gallinari, these points of support more than reliable for the little mogul. This is what the Hawks relied on last season, the versatility of their workforce. Anyone can hurt, and the danger comes from anywhere except Solomon Hill. We set up one for Timothée Luwawu-Cabarrot who gave up 4 good minutes by distilling in particular 2 assists. It’s still light but over time it will. Finally, in order, Atlanta’s next five opponents are Memphis, the Knicks, Indiana, Philly and Charlotte. A complicated schedule, however, against teams with great ambitions, most of which want to revive. Nate McMillan’s men’s streak will surely end, but we must keep this link established between last season and this new year. We find the identity, and this is the most important.

Roses are red, violets are blue, John Collins slams caramels and that’s good. These Hawks are pleasant to zieuter and even if it will be complicated – not to say impossible – to repeat the feat of the last exercise, we feel the steam rising. Calmly.
