Atlanta Hawks season highlights for Cam Reddish

Reddish has always prided himself on his ability to defend at a high level. Over his 26 regular-season games, Reddish averaged 1.3 assists per game which is impressive given that he did not settle into a role. Yes, he started 21 games but he only played 30 minutes or more 12 times.

Reddish had one game where he had four steals. Unfortunately, it was during a loss to the Charlotte Hornets. He also had another game where he had five steals, but again that was in another loss, this time to the Boston Celtics.

Reddish also had four games during the regular season where he scored 20 points or more. The common theme was that when Reddish performed well, the Hawks lost. This is certainly not Reddish’s fault, he seems to step up when the team needs him which is a fantastic quality to have.

However, Reddish’s undoubted highlight of the season was in the final game that the Hawks played. Reddish had played three games out of the last four after missing four months of action. In the final game of the season, Kevin Huerter was off. Reddish stepped up off the bench to set a Hawks record of six 3-point makes off the bench in the playoffs.
