Atlanta scored its fewest points Wednesday night in its three meetings thus far this season against the 76ers. Atlanta took advantage of Philadelphia’s careless nature with the basketball in forcing 24 76ers turnovers.
The Hawks also did shoot the basketball particularly well from the floor as a team, making 52.2% of their field goal attempts and 50.0% of their threes. Atlanta did leave some points at the line, only making 72.0% of its free throws.
Atlanta will have Thursday night off and will carry their two-game winning streak into Friday’s nationally televised game against an Indiana Pacers team that has unfortunately owned Atlanta this season. Tipoff in this Eastern Conference rivalry game is at 7:00 PM ET and the game will air on ESPN.
Even though Philadelphia is a struggling basketball team, Atlanta has to feel good about its offense the last two games by being able to score over 110 points in both contests. Hopefully Atlanta’s good shooting luck carries into their home game against the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Let’s Go Hawks!
