Following consecutive victories, the Atlanta Hawks extend their homestand with a showdown against the formidable Phoenix Suns tonight. Initially labeled as NBA Championship contenders, the Suns, after a sluggish start marred by injuries, have hit their stride, winning nine of their last eleven games. The quartet of Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, and Grayson Allen spearheads Phoenix's potent offense, each enjoying stellar seasons.
While the Hawks secured two consecutive wins, it's worth noting that their triumphs came against depleted squads. The Raptors, sans Immanuel Quickley, RJ Barrett, and Jakob Poetl, faced defeat on Sunday, followed by a victory against a Lakers squad missing Anthony Davis, navigating a back-to-back scenario. Tonight, Atlanta braces for a challenge against a resurgent and healthy Suns team showcasing their best basketball.
Anticipating a high-scoring affair, both teams boast formidable offenses. The Hawks rank 3rd in the NBA for points per game (PPG), 23rd in field goal percentage, 7th in three-point attempts, 18th in three-point percentage, 5th in free throw attempts, 8th in rebounding, and 18th in turnovers. Per Cleaning the Glass metrics, they stand 12th in points per 100 possessions, 20th in effective field goal percentage, 15th in turnover percentage, 3rd in offensive rebounding percentage, and 7th in free throw rate.
Despite an All-Star Game snub, Trae Young stands as one of the league's premier guards and players. Averaging 27 PPG (10th in the NBA) and 10.9 APG (2nd in the NBA), Young, alongside Dejounte Murray, possesses an opportunity to exploit the Suns' perimeter defense. Murray, enjoying a career-best scoring season with 21 PPG, adds an additional scoring threat for the Hawks. The stage is set for a compelling matchup where Young and Murray could make significant impacts against Phoenix.
