Atlanta @ Sacramento
Current records: Atlanta 16-20; Sacramento 16-23
What there is to know
The Atlanta Hawks’ road trip will continue as they head to the Golden 1 Center at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday to take on the Sacramento Kings. Both teams suffered a loss in their last game, so they will have a lot of motivation to get the “W”.
Atlanta was on hand but couldn’t close the gap Monday as they lost 136-131 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Point guard Trae Young did his best for the Hawks, finishing with 56 points (a whopping 43% of their total) and 14 assists. This is the third game in a row in which Young has had at least 11 assists. Young’s points were the most he had all season.
Meanwhile, Sacramento fell to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, losing 122-114. The Kings’ loss shouldn’t mask the performances of shooter Buddy Hield, who shot 7-on-13 from downtown and finished with 26 points and five rebounds, and point guard De’Aaron Fox, who had 30 points and six assists.
The Hawks should win easily, but they also should have easily beaten the Houston Rockets on December 13 and slipped with a 132-126 instead. In other words, don’t count Sacramento yet.
