I asked Nate McMillan about some of the early foul trouble John Collins has gotten into:
“We want our guys to be aggressive. I think he’s getting caught sometimes reaching and some fouls like that, so play defense with your feet, not so much with your hands.” – 6:06 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
It has been well documented that Deni Avdija is an extremely diligent worker.
The latest example with Avdija working through concepts with direction of player development Alex McLean an hour before watching film and usual pre-game workout routine with assistant coach Pat Delany. – 5:50 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
With Daniel Gafford out, obviously Trez will likely start. But I’m guessing we’ll see Kuzma and/or Avdija at the 5. They are the biggest players left on the roster. Kuzma is rebounding well and Avdija has shown improvement protecting the rim. – 2:18 PM

Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Per Synergy, when De’Andre Hunter is guarding the pick-and-roll ball handler, they are shooting 3-of-18 against him.
In all possessions Hunter is listed as the primary defender, opponents are shooting 28.6 percent. – 2:17 PM

Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Daniel Gafford ruled OUT (right quad contusion) tonight vs. Hawks. Raul Neto expected to be back in the lineup. #WizHawks2:07 PM

Trae Young’s bow. John Collins’ T. Clint Capela’s ‘vacation’ guarantee. The Atlanta Hawks hung out with me to explain why it is they do and say these things and why they have no plans to stop. ⁦@The Athletictheathletic.com/2917287/2021/1…1:49 PM
