Date: 3rd November 2021

Brooklyn Nets is having a mixed season. They won their matches with authority against weak teams and got equally dominated by strong teams. Nets Superstar Kevin Durant is performing at his usual best keeping the team in the playoff picture from the very beginning.
James Harden and LeMarcus Aldridge are beginning to score more easily now, which might ease some pressure off Durant and Steve Nash. The team will also be looking for the early return of Kyrie Irving so that they will have all their attacking options and combinations against the opposition.
Trae Young – dynamic Hawks Guard has continued his playoff form. Young leads Hawks in points per game while dishing out team-high 9.4 assists. Cam Reddish – into his 3rd year in NBA has provided very productive stats for the Hawks off the bench.
Hawks Centers are defensively strong with an average of 10 boards per game making it difficult for opponents to drive to the basket. Ex-Clippers Lou Williams and Danilo Gallinari are not 100% yet playing just 4 matches out of 7.
