Got a little weird at the end of the game but the Hawks hold on and win their fourth straight game and beat the Hornets 115-105. Hawks are now 8-9.
Capela: 20/15, 10/11 FG
Young: 19/9, 5/15 FG
Reddish: 17/6, 7/13 FG
Huerter: 17, 6/10 FG – 9:50 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Trapping Trae with 3 seems a little excessive. Reddish gets open corner 3 and it’s game. – 9:48 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Something about the end of this #Hornets-Hawks game makes me sense a rivalry that’s marinating. – 9:48 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Extremely clutch 3’s by Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish to get the Hawks’ lead back up to 9, and then a key block by John Collins. – 9:46 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Cam Reddish has had some good finishes and some not-as-good finishes, but his closeouts on CHA shooters have had a real impact. – 9:36 PM

Clint Capela has matched a season-high in scoring with 20 points.
He’s 10-for-10 from the field, with 14 rebounds and two blocks. – 9:31 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR

Bogi layup off a heave by Kevin Huerter, then a wide-open layup for Huerter off a Trae Young assist.
Hawks are humming along, offensively. Shooting 55.4% FG.
They lead the Hornets 82-68, 4:12 3Q. – 9:06 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
If you’re going to play exclusively small, the weakside defensive effort has to be better than this. Come on LaMelo, you know two have to guard the post. PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Borrego going small v. Capela most of the night is … something. Not sure what Nick Richards did overnight, but must’ve been bad. – 8:58 PM

Celtics up to 16 assists already. They haven’t had more than 24 assists in any game this season that ended in regulation. Their two highest assist totals, 34 against the Knicks and 33 against Charlotte, both came in OT games. – 8:27 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Game getting away from the #Hornets here in the second quarter. Defense letting them down and they aren’t hitting shots. Hawks on a 15-0 run, #Hornets trail 43-26. – 8:23 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Nice stretch from Cam Reddish (two 3’s and a jumper) to help the Hawks work up to a 40-26 lead vs. the Hornets, 7:14 2Q.
He’s got 10 points in his first 10 minutes off the bench. – 8:19 PM

Much, much better Cam Reddish as of late – 8:18 PM

@Kelly Oubre | @HornetsOnBally PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Ooooo what a block by Clint Capela – 8:16 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Hawks opened the second quarter with an all-bench lineup of Delon Wright, Lou Williams, Cam Reddish, Danilo Gallinari and Gorgui Dieng, but after the timeout bring Clint Capela out in place of Dieng. – 8:14 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his second three-pointer tonight, Danilo Gallinari has 1,332, and ties Baron Davis for 50th in NBA history. – 8:14 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
A disgustingly nasty two-handed slam by Kelly Oubre. He did a little shoulder shake and mean mugged after that one. #Hornets trail 27-26. – 8:11 PM

Charlotte Hornets @hornets
Slow start, but keeping it close!
#AllFly PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR

Hornets are missing jump shots every sort of way. Hawks are leaving a lot of their jumpers short. – 7:59 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
It’s not fair how effortless LaMelo makes this pass look + how effortless Miles makes this catch, gather and finish look. What a combo. PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Hornets have 6 OREBs early. – 7:52 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
The other day, Nate McMillan said you’re starting to see Clint Capela look like the old Clint, the Clint from last season that was so dominant.
Capela has 8 points and 5 rebounds in his first 6 minutes tonight; excelling just as he has the past few games. – 7:51 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
First player off the bench tonight: Cody Martin. – 7:49 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Clint Capela running the floor like Robert Parish will go a long way toward helping the Hawks with two elite fast-break PGs on the floor. – 7:46 PM

Nate McMillan on the Hawks’ pace the past few games:
“We’re getting better, but I want us to play faster. I think we have to play with more speed out on the floor, get out into transition, but it starts with, again, getting stops.” – 5:54 PM
