Next team?

With Jeremy’s ultimate goal to start again, I’ll give you some interesting teams to think about after doing a little bit of research. I’ll have that for you tonight after the Raptors game.

Hawks vs Clippers 1st Half Game Thread


This is great for Jeremy, coming in off the bench with Collins, Dedmon, and Justin Anderson.  Collins and Dedmon will be starting soon so he really has to take advantage here.

Hawks @ Pacers Post Game Thread

After watching Luka Doncic lead the Mavs over the Warriors, I think it adds even more pressure on Trae. Everyone will be talking about how big a mistake the Hawks made trading Doncic for Trae. As I stated before the season, Trae is not a great shooter and that passing is his main strength. He is pressing and his teammates aren't helping him much. Luka is special and will no doubt be a superstar in this league. Trae will eventually be very good but it's gonna take him time and he'll have to get stronger and make much better decisions especially with his shot selection. Right now, Jeremy is showing that as he gets healthy, he is the much better player. I think that at some point soon, Jeremy will start as it will benefit Trae in the long run.

Jeremy starting to round into shape:

In 18 mpg per 36 min.:

20.6 points
5.9 assists

Here are some mind boggling comparison numbers:

Lin:

46.4% fg
38.1% 3pt
86.5% ft

Trae:

39.4% fg
24.2% 3pt
80.9% ft


Couple other things. As we stated before the game, John Collins is a different maker. Looks like he was on a minutes restriction but you can see how much of a difference he makes having him play in the first half and not having him in the 2nd...Hawks writers very silent on Jeremy's play vs Trae's. No surprise...So, Zach Lowe, doesn't Jeremy look like an NBA player now? How about Gordon Hayward not looking like a starting NBA player so far? Wouldn't this be better on your list of 10? Jeremy is averaging more points than Hayward who is starting! LOL!





Hawks @ Pacers 2nd Half Game Thread

Nice first half for Jeremy. And as we said, John Collins is a difference maker.

Hawks @ Pacers 1st Half Game Thread

With John Collins coming off the bench tonight in his 2018-2019 season debut, I'm very excited to see a pick and roll pairing with JLin. Collins is a difference maker and you'll see a different Hawks team with him on the floor.
