Atlanta Hawks season highlights for Tony Snell

Once Snell broke into the rotation he had some really nice games. In a loss against the Utah Jazz, Snell hit a perfect 4-of-4 from deep. Unfortunately for Snell and the Hawks, this was in an effort to try and get the team back into the game, but the Hawks were not good enough at the time.

Then, thanks to a solid game against the Denver Nuggets when Snell went 4-of-5 from deep, he was asked to step into the starting lineup due to the Hawks’ injury crisis. He would start the next 18 games for the franchise and played really well for the most part.

Snell would have six games during this stretch where he would collect double figures and was a really solid contributor on the defensive end. This spell of games helped get the Hawks’ season back on track. Snell was also really active on the glass during this time as well.

However, no highlights page for Snell this season would be complete without including his game-winner against the Toronto Raptors. The Hawks had less than ten seconds left and Trae Young drove the ball into the paint. Cut off, he passed the ball out to Snell who put up the 3-ball that never looked like missing, His teammates celebrated that shot hard with Snell, as they should have.
