by Jason Sanford

The Atlanta Hawks faced the Dallas Mavericks in their first home game at their newly renovated State Farm Arena. Atlanta is coming into this game with a record of 1-2, and Dallas coming in at 2-1.

 

Both teams have rookies in their starting lineups Trae Young and Luka Dončić. Through summer league and the three regular-season games, the first year players are already showing that they are ready for the NBA.

The other starters for Atlanta include Kent Baze more at guard, Tauren Prince at forward, Vince Carter at the other forward, and Alex Len at center;  with new head coach Lloyd Pierce.

 

In the first quarter, the Hawks struggled from the field as Dallas went on a 21-12 run stopped by a timeout by coach Pierce.  Young struggled not hitting any shots and missing both free throws. The Mavs, on the other hand, seemed like they could not miss. Players such as Wesley Matthews, DeAndre Jordan, and Luka Dončić went on a scoring frenzy.  At the end of the quarter, the score was 42-22 Dallas.

In the second quarter is where Atlanta started to pave the road for a comeback. Kent Bazemore absolutely dominated the quarter as he seemed unstoppable with his scoring, making jump shots layups, dunks, and everything in between. Dwyane Dedmon was grabbing all of the boards in his first game back of the season from ankle surgery.  Rookie Omari Spellman came off the bench and made some highlight dunks. The Hawks were posed for a run led by Tauren Prince and Kent Bazemore and by halftime had cut the lead 58-48.

 

By the third quarter, the Hawks finally tied the game up form a three-pointer from Kent Bazemore.  This time DeAndre Bembry getting rejuvenated on offense and defense by hitting a number of threes and getting steals.  The Hawks were playing tough defense but not capitalizing as they kept turning the ball over. Trae Young picked up his fourth personal foul by attempting to guard Luka Dončić in the post. J.J. Barea kept throwing up alley-oop passes and players like Dwight Powell and  Maxi Kleber were finishing them. Still fighting at the end of the third, the score of 87-80.’

 

Optimistic and still and hungry for the first W, the Hawks finally led the game off of the three made free throws from Trae Young.  Luka took the lead back with a floater to make it 97-96 Dallas. Rookie Kevin Huerter had the opportunity to regain the led with the free throws, but Dallas took advantage with the made three by Wesley Matthews. The rookie Trae Young was breaking ankles and making tough shots trying to get the W for his team. Tauren Prince fouled out of the game with 24 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists.  With 1:06 left on the clock Kent Bazemore slams it down to make it 105-101 Hawks. The rest was history, Comeback complete.

The Hawks won the game 104-11, thanks to the Kent Baze More ’s career high of 32 points, strong contributions from Tauren Prince getting 324 points, and players hitting some clutch free throws down the course of the game to secure the W.
