Hawks vs 76ers: Player Grades & Analysis

Game GradesEach player is given a grade on an A+ through F scale based upon their performance.

Box Score

Atlanta Hawks

Jeff Teague: B+

Jeff shot just under 50% to get 13 points but silently dished out 11 assists, while not committing a single turnover.

Devin Harris: B+
Good to see Devin back in the lineup and playing facilitator with eight points and eight assists in 18 minutes.

Kyle Korver: C-

Korver was off in the first half but when the second started we saw him hitting those mid-range jumpers we’re accustomed to seeing. His 3-point streak continued which is all that anyone really cares about. 71 straight!

Josh Smith: A+

This is the Josh Smith we all wanted to see from the beginning of the season. We got it all tonight. Spins to the basket, hooks, assists, crashing the boards, and of course his tough defense. He had a double-double recorded by the third quarter and just looked unstoppable.

Al Horford: B

We got consistent Al Horford as he put up 16 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. His 2012-13 numbers are 17/10/3/1. And that mid-range game is still a thing of beauty.

John Jenkins: A+

The rookie gets better every time he gets on the floor. We knew he could shoot, we’re learning he can defend, and now we’re watching him penetrate in the paint and draw fouls. Very impressive.

DeShawn Stevenson: C-

DeShawn had a rough night. He couldn’t hit a shot (0-4) and committed a turnover. But oddly enough had the best +/- of all the Hawks’ reserves with +17.

Mike Scott: A

I don’t think I have been this excited about a second round draft pick since……… ever. Scott has a good future ahead of him and seems to have amazing chemistry with fellow rookie John Jenkins.

Ivan Johnson: C+

Ivan definitely made a difference in the first half, coming in with energy everytime he hits the floor. Nice production too with eight points, five rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes.

Philadelphia 76ers

Jrue Holliday: D-

The first time all-star was had a very rough night. Correction, a horrible night. He seemed to miss everything he threw up and couldn’t seem to handle the ball with five turnovers. He only had one assist.

Damien Wilkins: D

The former Hawk missed every shot he took from the field (0-7), only scoring on free-throws (6-6).

Evan Turner: D

Turner struggled the entire game, scoring nine points on 12 shot attempts while committing five turnovers.

Thaddeus Young: A+

It’s confirmed. This man is a Hawks killer. Scored the most first half points (22) than any other Sixer this season. That’s all you need to know.

Spencer Hawes: D

He played like how I thought Spencer Hawes would play: five points and six rebounds in 25 minutes.

Nick Young: B+
No matter what team he plays for, Nick Young will always hit ridiculous shots against the Hawks. He led the bench with 19 points on six-of-nine shooting, including three long-range bombs.

Dorell Wright: B
I forgot this guy plays for them, until he drilled a couple of 3’s. Overall solid game with 15 points, two steals, one rebound and one assist.

Lavoy Allen: C-
In 12 minutes he grabbed two rebounds…….yeah, that’s it.

Arnett Moultrie: C

Moltrie logged a good amount of minutes (22) but seemed forgettable when he was on the court. Finished with seven points and seven rebounds.
