Kyle Korver On Atlanta’s Offensive Explosion
By Rob Hamilton / 92-9 The Game / CBS Atlanta
The Atlanta Hawks continued their offensive run on Wednesday night, Dec 18th at Phillips Arena. Two nights after an impressive win over Kobe and the Lakers, Kyle Korver hit eight three pointers, at one point seven in a row, and had a season high 28 points in the win over the Sacramento Kings.
Korver talked to the press about the potent offense after the game:
“That’s the product of a lot of things,” Korver said. “It’s unselfishness, it’s good spacing, it’s a lot of guys in rhythm, it’s everyone being dangerous and no one’s really sure where the help is going to come from (on defense). When Jeff is attacking like that and really going to the basket, it really creates a lot of openings for us.”
It’s important to note that the Hawks have gotten over the 100 point mark in eight out of their last nine games and that includes four straight.
Thanks to Korver the Hawks are shooting 50 percent from behind the arc over the last two games and his NBA record streak of games with at least one three pointer is rapidly approaching the century mark.
But don’t be fooled, it is not just a one man show. What makes this offense so impressive is that it’s an evenly spread collection of effort. Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap have all contributed as much to these wins.
