The Hawks starting 5 might not get you all riled up, but their performances as a team is really what has stood out. The 5 of Teague, Korver, Caroll, Millsap and Horford have all averaged double digits. Jeff Teague is the one who is having a stand out year scoring 18 points per game and 7 assists along with Millsap averaging 17 points and 8 boards; make the team ultra competitive against even some of the best sides. At home Atlanta are absolutely ferocious going 8-2 against all opposition, and will look to continue that record come this game against a Nuggets side who hate playing on the road.
The Nuggets have found a lot of success against poor defensive teams such as Phoenix, New York, Utah etc; but struggled against teams like Portland, Washington etc. Ty Lawson has been the major stand out for this team. After having a poor start to the season, he has stood up to be counted while now averaging 17 points and 10 assists. Other than Afflalo and to a certain extent Chandler, the rest of the team has been extremely disappointing especially Faried and Gallinari; who were big scorers, but have failed to turn up this campaign.
Nuggets tend to concede over 105 points per game due to poor defense, and I expect similar points to be scored by the Hawks while covering the spread tonight. This spread would have landed in all of Atlanta's wins this season.
