Mike Scott isn’t a name a lot of people in the NBA outside of Atlanta know, but after tonight and after SportsCenter gets a hold of him, people will at least know his name for a weekend. The Atlanta Hawks are fighting for a playoff spot and fighting to keep their name form being tossed to the side by analysts everywhere.
While one good game doesn’t change things too much, Scott is throwing together a game at least he and Hawks fans can get excited about. Earlier on in the first half, Lou Williams took the ball and went on a fastbreak down the court before passing to Scott. The rebound and the fastbreak were nice enough but Scott put an exclamation point on it all with is powerful dunk.
You may not watch the Hawks and you may not know who Mike Scott is, but at least the man is putting on a show in Atlanta.
