Why the Hawks can cover

Atlanta is led by a dynamic playmaker in Trae Young, who is averaging more than 27 points and nine assists per game. The Hawks lead the NBA in turnovers, giving the ball away on just 13 percent of their possessions, and Atlanta is also shooting 81.9 percent from the free throw line. The Hawks are rebounding offensively on 28.8 percent of their shots, and the Nets are very poor on the defensive glass with a 68.2 percent defensive rebound rate. Brooklyn is also in the NBA’s bottom five in 3-point shooting accuracy (37.6%) and free throw attempts allowed.

Defensively, the Hawks are above average in overall efficiency, allowing just 111.3 points per 100 possessions. Opponents are shooting just 33.7 percent from 3-point range against Atlanta, and the Hawks are forcing more than 15 turnovers per game. Brooklyn is last in the NBA in offensive rebounding (22.0%) and second-chance points (10.2 per game), with the lowest mark of five in free throws.

Why networks can cover

Brooklyn has a pair of stars on offense. The Nets are led by Kevin Durant, who is enjoying an MVP-caliber season. Durant is averaging 29.8 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game while shooting nearly 56% from the field, and he’s averaging over 32 points per contest over the past seven games. Kyrie Irving has also been prolific, scoring 24.9 points per game and reaching the 20-point mark in eight of his last nine games. With Durant and Irving leading the way, the Nets are scoring 112.8 points per 100 possessions this season, including 114.4 points per 100 over the last 10 games.

Brooklyn is No. 3 in the NBA in true shooting percentage and No. 2 in the league in making 49.7 percent of its field goal attempts. That includes a top-10 mark in 3-point shooting (37.2%) and 2-point shooting (57.4%), with the Nets benefiting from a Hawks defense that is No. 28 in the NBA in penalty kick prevention and missing key parts on both ends.
