Article Summary:

Two of the NBA’s top young point guards will face off Saturday as the Atlanta Hawks look to extend their winning streak to four games when they host the Charlotte Hornets. The Hawks are 6-1 at home and have won 13 straight home games against Eastern Conference opponents.

“These are games we know we have to win,” Atlanta guard Kevin Huerter said. “We still want to maintain an aggressive mentality; that is what got us the lead. I’ve seen this countless times in the NBA. It is a long 48-minute game. You don’t want to take your foot off the gas.”

That’s rarely a problem for Ball, who had 21 points in the first half but committed the turnover that gave Indiana a chance to tie the game in the final seconds.
