How did the Hawks get the threes. 8 of them were assisted by Trae Young. Young gets into the paint because the Jazz are trailing him off the pick and forcing him off the three point line. The defender is now playing him from the trail position and he is going at Gobert and Rudy is occupied. With Dewayne Dedmon and Alex Len and John Collins the Hawks have bigs that will shoot the three. Dedmon had three of those assists for three and Collins had another.

KC Johnson: Jim Boylen with passionate defense of Tom Izzo, who he said lets players come back at him and invests time with each player to build trustful relationships. “I’m disappointed you can’t coach somebody hard these days without someone making a big deal about it.” – via Twitter KCJHoop
When Snyder recently overheard Jazz assistant coach Alex Jensen telling Georges Niang to stay ready, it quickly brought back memories of the all the times he had been told that as a player. It wasn’t always the easiest advice to take. Sometimes all the hours in the gym and all the time spent studying film study, only to sit on a bench and watch, was tough.
especially when the guys playing ahead of you suck.
not sure why all of a sudden people are noticing Neto. He's been doing it since his first summer league
Cynically, one could say that this is just the kind of thing the NBA does for PR points and, really, just about every player in the league has some kind of foundation (for which there are varying levels of actual player involvement).
