The San Antonio Spurs pay a visit to the Atlanta Hawks at the State Farm Arena on Monday night. Here’s a Spurs vs Hawks Prediction.

San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have been in a slump as they've lost 11 of their last 14 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after having their two-game win streak halted by the Bulls in a 122-116 loss on Saturday. Tre Jones led the team with 30 points, nine rebounds and four assists on 10 of 13 shooting, Keldon Johnson added 26 points off the bench while Malaki Branham chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Spurs shot just 41 percent from the field and 18 of 46 from the 3-point line as they poured in 39 points in the third quarter to erase an early 18-point deficit, only to let it go to waste as they scored just five points in the final 6:19 to allow the Bulls off the hook in the end.

  • Victor Wembanyama ranks 1st amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (3.1) this season.
  • Devin Vassell ranks 19th amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.3) this season.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting thrashed by the Wizards in a 127-99 loss on Saturday. Trae Young led the team with 21 points and 10 assists, Saddiq Bey added 16 points while Dejounte Murray chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Hawks shot just 34 percent from the field and 11 of 40 from the 3-point line as they got off to another poor start and were never in the contest after getting outscored by 41-24 in the third quarter to fall behind by as many as 30 points.

  • Trae Young ranks 2nd amongst qualified players for assists per game (10.9) this season.
  • Clint Capela ranks 3rd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (10.5) this season.

  • The Hawks rank 30th in the league for opponent field goal percentage this season (50.5%).
  • The Spurs rank 30th in the league for Q3 win percentage this season (21.1%).
  • The Spurs rank 29th in the league for free throw attempts per game this season (20.2).

Spurs vs Hawks Prediction

The Spurs are still shorthanded with Zach Collins out and Doug McDermott listed as questionable, while the Hawks are coming into this one with the same squad. The Spurs were starting to build some momentum with a couple of wins on the trot, before they got stopped in their tracks by the Bulls in a narrow loss on Saturday, while the Hawks have continued their horror season and just got thrashed by the lowly Wizards in their last outing. This is certainly a game I'd rather stay away from, but the Hawks were good enough to sneak past the Spurs on Dec 1 and I think we're going to see a similar result here with the Hawks winning in a close one.
