Hawks Pass Final Home Tune Up Test

Mike Scott slams home 2 of his 17 game high pts

Rookie forward Mike Scott muscled in 17 points to lead all scorers and help the Hawks to a 110-94 win over the Dallas Mavericks in Atlanta’s final preseason game in Philips Arena.

Newly acquired sharp shooter, Kyle Korver, lit the fuse draining a triple to open the Hawks 35 point scoring barrage in the first quarter. Nine different Hawks, including five reserves, chipped in on the offensive end to provide an early 10 point advantage.

Scott entered the game with just 6 minutes remaining in the first eased onto the stat sheet with an old fashioned three point play. By the end of the quarter, the former UVA Cavalier had 9 points.

The 43 rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft credited his teammates for the success on the offensive end. “My teammates just got me the ball and I was just able to finish,” said Scott.

“Mike is getting more and more comfortable with our system,” remarked Head Coach Larry Drew on Scott’s performance. “I think he’s finding his niche in what we do”.

With the offense staking a 15 point lead at the half, the defense continued to limit the Mavericks second shot opportunities. Through three quarters, the Mavericks were 2 of 10 on second shots and 13 of 32 on points in the paint. “We were limiting them to one shot and getting out on the break,” said Hawks forward Josh Smith.

Atlanta was seven shots better than Dallas from the field on the same number of total attempts. “We have so many weapons on the perimeter,” said Smith. “Guys that can knock down jump shots, it makes it easier on us.”

There is one more preseason game in Detroit before the Hawks get down to business on November 2 when the revamped Houston Rockets come to town.
