Even though he didn't score until garbage time, I think AJ Griffin's presence in the 2nd quarter was pivotal to the comeback. You have to guard him 25 feet from the basket, which gives the Hawks something closer to the spacing they had when guys like Huerter and Gallo were out there. It also gives me hope that we'll start to see more consistency once Bogi returns. 

The second half defense was also incredible. This is a very Jekyll & Hyde team on that end of the floor, but when they turn it on, they can be very good. 

When Bogi is healthy, I'm really interested to see a second unit lineup of DJM-A. Holiday-Bogi-JC-OO.

We went to a Zone Defense at the 6:59 mark of the 2nd quarter when we were down 23, got to within 8 points at the half. Hawks again came out in the Zone to start the 3rd and it was over for the Nix, even with Trae out!
The Zone and Murray playing centerfield in the Zone was the difference.

DJM is honestly so much better than I expected he would be so quickly. I felt it was an overpay, but he is honestly making it worth every draft pick we traded. 

 

His game also meshes really well with Trae's. The rest of the Hawks are starting to play off of it. No longer Trae has to be the conductor of points and assists most nights for the Hawks to win.

 

This pairing will really start putting teams into a blinder as the season goes along. Can't wait to see this Hawks team come postseason time.

I'm still on Team Fire Nate but at least he's trying SOMETHING different instead of just sitting there with that perplexed look on his face while changing nothing. 

I don’t know which team I’m on but you are right. 

At least he is trying else.
