Atlanta Hawks Preview
The Atlanta Hawks have been struggling for consistency over the past couple of seasons. They started off this season on a hot note and have got some great young players. But they are still not able to win games and have a 4-7 record at the moment.
With weak competition at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, despite the poor record, the Hawks lie at the seventh position. They do, however, have great building blocks for the future.
Key player - Trae Young
Trae Young was selected as the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks. Young has been incredible for the Hawks and has been putting up some mind boggling numbers.
This has again been an incredible season for Trae Young so far. He is averaging 27.3 points, 9.1 assists and four rebounds per game shooting above 45% from the field. Young is without a doubt one of the most exciting players to watch in the NBA.
Hawks predicted lineup
Trae Young, Cam Reddish, De'Andre Hunter, Jabari Parker, Damian Jones.
Los Angeles Clippers Preview
The Los Angeles Clippers were considered the pre-season favorites by the majority of the analysts. They added two superstars to a core group of players that reached the playoffs last season.
The Clippers started off the season very brightly. They have somehow fallen to the mid-table but still remain the team to beat this season when all the players are healthy.
Key player - Paul George
Paul George had a great debut game for the Clippers. He scored 33 points on 10-17 shooting from the field.
George was acquired by the Clippers from the Thunder to be the second superstar alongside Kawhi Leonard. He was exceptional last year for the Thunder and will be hoping to play a major part in the Clippers championship aspirations.
Clippers predicted lineup
Lou Williams, Terance Mann, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, Ivica Zubac.
Hawks vs Clippers Match Prediction
The Clippers will have Kawhi Leonard back for this match and will be at almost full strength. The Hawks are a good team but don't have the firepower right now to challenge the Clippers.
We predict the Clippers to have an easy win in this match against the Hawks.
