Article Summary:

“They played harder and better than us, which we cannot afford to have a team playing most of the game harder than us. We had a couple of good stretches, of course we have to take the positives things we did as it’s the first preseason game but of course there’s a lot of work to do.”

For the game itself, the differential came by way of the Miami’s three-point shooting. “That’s the measure I get coming from tonight’s game. Our conditioning needs to be much better, certainly our execution on both ends of the floor-74 points in the first half we gave up. That’s what I’m measuring.”

The Hawks didn’t enjoy a ton of positives from their first preseason outing and it was hard to get an overall sense of, well, anything as Clint Capela, Kevin Huerter and De’Andre Hunter all sat out due to injury management. “I’ll be good, trust me.”

Young was unlikely to play in the Hawks’ next preseason game anyways so he will have time to rest any lingering soreness from that impact.

“Cam, I plan to play in all four preseason games,” said McMillan of Reddish.
