Here are the game highlights of the match between the Atlanta Hawks and the Dallas Mavericks which was scheduled on February 23, 2020 (PHI time).
Usually, it’s Trae Young who is on the spotlights in most of the Hawks games. Yet, this time around, he got help from his teammate John Collins who exploded with 35 points and 17 rebounds.
Collins wanted to make sure that the media took notice of his basketball skills despite the Mavericks came into the game short-handed.
“I feel like I definitely took advantage of the mismatches I had tonight,” Collins said. “As you guys know, I can crash the basket pretty well, so I think I definitely took advantage of that and made the most of it.”
Dallas played without their two of their main-men. Kristaps Porzingis was reported that he is under injury management while Luka Doncic got sidelined due to ankle soreness.
Apart from Collins, rookie Cam Reddish also had a stellar outing as he dropped 20 points and six boards while Young delivered double-double output with his 25 points and 10 rebounds.
Tim Hardaway Jr., led the Mavericks in the scoring department with 33 points while Seth Curry chipped in with 33 points, six rebounds and five assists.
It was in the final frame that the Hawks made their scoring surge as they outscored the visiting team, 34-21.
