If this play looks familiar, it either because the Hawks are having an easy time running the fast break against the Houston Rockets, or Mike Scott is just having an aggressively amazing game so far. It’s likely both as the Hawks managed to get a fast break transition against the Rockets twice in one half with both plays starting with Lou Williams taking the ball down the court and feeding it to Mike Scott.
The first instance saw Williams feed him a pass before a dunk but this second time saw the duo get fancy and throw down the alley-oop.
Scott hasn’t been a big name int he NBA but after his game tonight, people will at least remember him over the weekend. Scott is growing in Atlanta and that’s what the Hawks need. They also need to be entertaining, something Scott is proving he can also be for his team and their fans.
