The Original Vs Version 2.0

@ Golden State Warriors, Tuesday November 13th 2018, at 10:30 PM EST, on NBA TV

The 2nd game of the road trip, takes the Atlanta Hawks from playing against a star that was in the Finals, to playing the defending champions. Travis Schlenk, and his newly constructed Splash Brothers South, will get invaluable experience playing against the team that plays like they should aspire to.

The fact that these two teams are constructed in a similar fashion, makes for interesting matchups all over the court. Taurean Prince gets to measure his progress against an All Time great for the 2nd consecutive game. This tussle will certainly show Prince if he has made progress on the defensive end, as Kevin Durant is as good of a natural scorer, that this league has seen!

Trae Young versus Stephen Curry, is an equally intriguing head to head pairing. Despite the fact that Young says he modeled his game after Steve Nash, he is mostly compared to Curry by fans and media. This is due to both gentlemen having an affinity, and the ability, to shoot and make shots from a very long-range. This will be a great learning experience for the Atlanta Hawks young point guard.

Klay Thompson against his splash brother “clone” Kevin Huerter is another match-up to watch for. Both payers are known for their deep three point range as well. John Collins banging with Draymond Green inside will certainly be entertaining. As will it be fun to see rookie Omari Spellman against Green as well. Spellman plays with a similar hustle and ferocity.

The rematch is Monday December 3rd 2018 at 7:30 EST at The New Phillips Arena.
