ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The thing that has made the Atlanta Hawks so tough to defend this season is that offensively, the Hawks are completely committed to finding the best possible shot they can find. This means that you often see players give up good shots in order to find a teammate with a great shot. Which means you might get multiple players who are named All-Stars, but there may also be nights where those guys don’t score a ton and instead act as facilitators for the other players.
This was the kind of game Kyle Korver was having last night for the Atlanta Hawks, acting most as a decoy and making life easier for his teammates. Then, all of a sudden, halfway through the third quarter everything opened up for Korver and he got 4 consecutive long jumpers (three threes and one with his foot on the three-point line). Before you watch this clip below, remember that Korver had not scored at all in the game when this stretch below happened. He didn’t score after this stretch. And the Hawks won by 13.
