We don’t really know if the Falcons and their 24 missing balls reassured them, but they assured the primary before the Wolves (deprived of Karl Anthony Townes and Ricky Rubio) to return to victory. Besides Trae Young in arcade mode, Atlanta could also be content with seeing players like De’Andre Hunter and Clint Capela, both of whom were also important in checking out valuable success.
Minnesota got off to a good start, but the Hawks responded quickly, giving it shape. After five points from Kevin Huerter to equalize 11-11, John Collins and De’Andre Hunter went to Martyrdom Circle, with an alley and then a major dunk allowing locals to complete 12-0 (18-11).
D’Angelo Russell line up two baskets before finding Jaden McDaniels at 3 points (24-24), but Atlanta retains control, this time Trae Young found Tony Snell from 5 seconds from the end of the first quarter to make a return to the Falcons in the lead (29-25) ).
Clint Capella was not left out in terms of efficiency and scenery, offering himself an impressive faucet. Ryan Saunders have to stop the match when Trae Young scores his first 3-point basket in the evening (41-35), which does not prevent the point keeper from continuing to use a slogan missile and a Loop pass for Kevin Boost in the counter-attack (46-35).
The immersion of Jarrett Culver and Jared Vanderbilt is not enough to change the tide. After Kevin Huerter and De’Andre Hunter near the circuit, it was Clint Capela who introduced himself 2 + 1 and then an alley sent by Trae Young. Wolves are not far off to a crash, but stuck back to 58-51 at break after 3 points from owner Beasley and 3 + 1 from D’Angelo Russell.
Trio Huerter-Hunter-Capela finished off the bullet
Minnesota resumes with 7-0 but immediately falls back, falling under balls of John Collins and De’Andre Hunter (70-60). De’Andre Hunter’s move to 2 + 1 followed by the elevated lane between Kevin Huerter and John Collins raised the gap to +14 (75-61). But Atlanta failed to finish the match, which is the fault of many missed balls, and sees Minnesota appearing again at -7 at the end of the third quarter (78-71).
Clint Capella served well near the circuit, then twice this time Kevin Hoyter steered the Falcons to victory while De’Andre Hunter appears to have determined the fate of a 3-point encounter (93-78). And when Malik Beasley brought his team back to 95-89 after aligning two baskets from a distance in a row, Huerter-Hunter’s husband was there to answer it before allowing Clint Cappella to finish off his good performances with two last baskets (108-97).
