Starter Grades

TRAE YOUNG

PG, Atlanta Hawks

B

Honorable effort from Trae after playing 48 minutes a night ago. He was doubled nearly possession by the Magic, even tripled down the stretch. He made just 3 of his 11 attempts from three, making up for that at the line on 12/13 free throw shooting. He added nine assists and a rebound compared to just four turnovers.

KEVIN HUERTER

SG, Atlanta Hawks

C+

Not Red Velvet’s best game, and he struggled from behind the arch as well. He ended up leading the team in minutes played with 35 after 47 on Sunday. Huerter did make some nice plays with the ball in his hands tonight, looking like a second play-making out there. He finished with 7 assists to go along with 12 points.

DE'ANDRE HUNTER

SF, Atlanta Hawks

B-

Hunter recorded all ten of his points in the first half, making four of eight shots in total. He recorded just three rebounds but played good defense, definitely the best of any of the Hawks’ five starters. The rookie came away with a steal and a block and had active, punchy hands throughout.

JOHN COLLINS

PF, Atlanta Hawks

C -

JC ended up having a good game offensively after a slow start, continuing to raise his field goal percentage with a 10-14 night from the field. He wasn’t very good at all defensively tonight however, picking up three fouls and a +/- of -32. His eight rebounds were the first time since January 26th he’s grabbed less than ten, and was a factor in the Hawks getting out-rebounded by 14.

DAMIAN JONES

C, Atlanta Hawks

C

Jones played just 15 minutes despite starting and contributed 4 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steals. He’ll likely continue to be the “starting center” until Capela gets back from injury with Dedmon looking like a nice sixth man. Once Capela and Bruno are fully healthy, there’s a chance that Jones gets pushed out of the rotation entirely.
