Hawks hoping for better road outcome in New Orleans

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The Atlanta Hawks’ first road game of the season didn’t go well.

“Playing the full game, that’s something Coach McMillan has been saying,” guard Kevin Huerter said, “And we put together a full game.”

Atlanta led by 10 points at the end of the first quarter, by eight at halftime and by 16 at the end of the third quarter. “He’s a veteran and I think he settles us down. He did it last year when he played. I like him being out there. … I like the pace that we play at when he’s out there playing.”

The Hawks had 10 assists on 14 field goals in the third quarter and finished with 24 assists. “He just came in at the end and closed the game for us. We need him to play like that. But more importantly, he’s finding his teammates. He’s rebounding the ball. He’s calling plays. He’s taking such a leadership role. We need him to continue on that path, and I know he will.”
