The Atlanta Hawks snapped a ten game losing streak tonight as they beat the Golden State Warriors 104-79 at State Farm Arena. Guard Trae Young scored 24 points on 10-of-19 shooting from the field in 33 minutes. Rookie DeAndre Hunter added 18 points and four rebounds in 31 minutes. Hunter scored 13 of his 18 points in the first half. He exited the game midway through the fourth quarter with an apparent wrist injury.
The Warriors were without forward Draymond Green due to a sore heel and possible load management. Golden State dressed nine players tonight as they were without DeAngelo Russell and Stephen Curry, among others.
Guard Allen Crabbe missed the game with flu-like symptoms. Meanwhile, rookie guard/forward Cam Reddish had an MRI on Monday morning on his bothersome left wrist. The scan revealed no more than a sprain. He played off the bench, scoring eight points on 3-of-10 shooting. Also, guard Kevin Huerter missed his 11th straight game with a left rotator cuff sprain but participated in a limited practice Monday morning and may soon return to full participation.
Atlanta will face the Brooklyn Nets at State Farm Arena Wednesday night. The game will be highlighted by a halftime performance by Big KRIT.
