3 takeaways from Houston’s comeback win against Hawks

Houston Rockets beat the Atlanta Hawks in a thrilling comeback game, winning by 3 points. The victory has been attributed to James Harden’s clutch shooting and offensive rebounds that allowed Houston to tie the score with less than 5 seconds left on the clock.

The “hawks nba” is an NBA team that plays in Atlanta, Georgia. The Houston Rockets came back from a 16 point deficit and won the game by 3 points. The three takeaways from this game are why the Hawks lost, how they can fix their problems, and what happened after the game.

 

The Houston Rockets seemed to embrace a quality that they haven’t yet shed during their seven-game winning run, as shown by an astonishing comeback victory against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night. Since Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green went down, they’ve been able to stay competitive in all of their games.

Surprisingly, their outstanding offensive has been responsible for the majority of their success (third in the NBA in the last 10 games). They’re connecting on a level they couldn’t achieve before the victory run because shooting has been added to the primary rotation.

Let’s look at some of the Rockets’ key lessons from their 132-126 win against the Hawks, which included a 44-point fourth-quarter performance.

Takeaways from the Houston Rockets

1. D.J. Augustin has some juice left in him.

D.J. Augustin, a veteran guard, is due an apology. Augustin is still proven to be a good rotation player for Houston, contrary to popular thought.

Augustin has always been an NBA shooter who goes unnoticed. The veteran has a 38.1 career 3-point percentage. In fact, he’s hitting an absurd 46.4 percent from distance on 2.4 tries a game this season. He’ll probably cool off, but Houston has savored the advantages of his extra floor space in the meanwhile. He’s also a wise veteran who doesn’t make many errors, which is beneficial to this squad in terms of turnover.

Augustine scored 22 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field, 6-of-7 from 3-point range, and 2-of-2 from the free throw line on Monday. For Houston, he achieved it in just 22 minutes off the bench. Augustin might be a name to keep an eye on in trade talks over the coming several months. Over the next two seasons, Augustin will earn $14.3 million. When you combine that with his performance, you’re looking at a second-round choice.

Houston may utilize the roster slot to make further deals or convert Garrison Mathews to a regular contract later in the season.

2. David Nwaba is resurrected from the abyss.

Silas says he’s been wanting to get David Nwaba more playing time for a long and thought today was a good chance.

Nwaba is a tough wing defender who can make a 3-pointer on occasion. After signing a three-year contract in the summer, he hasn’t done much, but if the franchise is patient, he may be terrific deadline fodder next season.

Nwaba appeared in 11 minutes and scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting from the field, as well as assisting Trae Young on occasion. For the Rockets, his imprint was all over the game. When Green returns, he may not play at all, but it’s again another reminder that Houston’s rotation may need some pruning around the margins.

“That’s the entire point of being a professional,” Nwaba remarked of his inconsistent playing time. “All you have to do now is remain ready.” My colleagues are whispering in my ear to keep alert. And I went ahead and did it.”

3. Eric Gordon maintains his momentum with 32 points.

Keep an eye on EG while he works. 🔥

What more is there to say about Eric Gordon? He’s one of the league’s greatest role players, with a year and a half left on his deal at the time of the trade deadline. Christian Wood is a colossal screen-and-dive center who can shoot 3s all the way down to downtown. He’ll make any playoff club in either conference ecstatic.

On 10-of-16 shooting from the field, 5-of-8 shooting from 3-point range, and 7-of-9 shooting from the free-throw line, Gordon scored 32 points, three rebounds, three assists, and a steal on Monday. He scored 10 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, when he did not miss a field goal, 3-pointer, or free throw.

Gordon remarked of his performance, “I want to win the game.” “That’s what it’s all about.” If I scored this many points and didn’t win, I wouldn’t feel as good. As I already said, the most essential thing is to win.”
