NBA 2018-19, Hits and Flops: Atlanta Hawks vs Los Angeles Lakers
- The Lakers were handed a very disappointing loss by the Hawks as they head into the All-Star break.
Flop - Lance Stephenson:
Lance Stephenson has been good on this road trip for the Lakers but he failed to have any impact in this match.
Lance finished the match with 0 points and was a liability on the defensive end of the floor. He missed open shots and failed to provide any sort of veteran leadership to the Lakers second unit.
Lance has been shooting very well from the 3PT line this season, and he needs to step up his game after the All-Star break.
Hit - Trae Young:
Trae Young was the best player on the night from both sides. He was ruthless on the offensive end for the Hawks and kept troubling the Lakers with his shot-making and play-making skills.
Young finished the game with 22 points and 14 assists and also went to the free throw line on 9 occasions. He kept making the right plays and scored some crunch baskets.
Young is having a great rookie season, and is averaging 17 points and 7.5 assists in 57 games this season.Published 13 Feb 2019, 12:38 IST
