Atlanta, struggling with consistency, starts tough swing in Phoenix

Article Summary:

Atlanta is allowing 115.6 points per game in its five losses while scoring 101.2 points. In four wins, the Hawks are scoring 113.8 points and allowing 100.3.

Some of Atlanta’s offensive inconsistency early in the 2021-22 season is owed to All-Star guard Trae Young’s shooting slump. Young is hitting just 25.5 percent of his 3-point attempts, down from 34.3 percent a season ago, and his scoring average through nine games is down nearly three points from his 25.3-point average of last season.

Devin Booker shot 4-of-8 from 3-point range en route to 27 points in the win, Deandre Ayton continued the pace of his early-season double-double average with 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Landry Shamet scored 19 points off the bench.
