San Antonio Spurs will look to get back to winning ways when they face Atlanta Hawks on the road at State Farm Arena. Spurs opened the season with four straight wins but now find themselves with just two wins in the last three matches. Their streak was snapped up by Kawhi Leonard’s Los Angeles Clippers as Spurs lost 103-97 at StapelsCenter.
Atlanta Hawks also had a very good start to the new season as they recorded tow successive win over Deto=roit Pistons and Orlando Magic, but the injuries and increase in the profile of the teams mean Hawks now find themselves on a three-game losing streak.
Captain options | Fantasy picks:
Trae Young: His surname reveals about him everything. He is young, still learning his trade in the best Basketball league in the world. But the way he is playing, it looks he is destined for greatness. So far, he has racked up points at 26.8 in four games.
Dejounte Murray: The 23-year-old has been a bit consistent for the fans liking, but he is a great talent who can make a difference ion his own.
LaMarcus Aldridge: Spurs’ old man had one of the most productive seasons in recent memory as he averaged 21.3 points per game. The 34-yeat-old is averaging a team-high 16.5 points per game this season.
DeMar DeRozan: The former Toronto Raptors star has been not at his usual best in the last few games, but against a team like Atlanta Hawks who are not known for defending, DeRozan will fancy his chances.
Worth mentioning, John Collins, DeAndre Bembry.
The four-day break couldn’t have come sooner for Hawks after the injury to Trae Young. But the reports say that Hawks’ leading goal scorer this season may be fit to play here.
Hawks have upgraded Young as questionable, which means, he will be monitored before the game.
Still, the Hawks have a lengthy list at the moment with three first-team players still on the sideline. Allen Crabbe (knee) and Chandler Parsons (knee) remain out on the sideline due to injuries, while Evan Turner (Achilles) is the latest player to head to the treatment room.
San Antonio Spurs:
No reported injury concerns for the visitors.
