    The Resurgence of the Hawks Bench

    The Hawks currently hold the second-most efficient offense in the NBA (113.1 points per 100 possessions) led by Trae's 27.9 points and 9.5 assists per game. Unsurprisingly, the offense scores more efficiently with Trae on the court (116.2 points per 100 possessions) than when he rests (101.7). Despite that gap in numbers, the Hawks have taken the right approach to making it work when Trae rests – replacing him with a number of options – and it is starting to pay dividends of late.

    Young's scoring surge sends Hawks past Timberwolves, 134-122

    After leading Atlanta to back-to-back wins for the first time in almost two months, Trae Young wasn't ready to say the Hawks have regained last season's winning formula. It's far too early to talk about a return to the Eastern Conference finals for the Hawks, who are still only 12th in the conference and on the outside of the playoff standings.
