The Atlanta Hawks continue to be slowed by inconsistent play. After opening the season with a 9-2 start, the team has fell to 5-13 as they continue to search for an identity.

The Hawks recently loss to the youthful Minnesota Timberwolves who only won eight games out of 27 before facing the Hawks on Dec. 21. Without Dwight Howard and an injury to Tim Hardaway Jr., the Hawks were missing two key components. Howard’s absence was more glaring after the Hawks were out-rebounded by the Timberwolves by a double-digit margin.

But while the Hawks have remained inconsistent as a team, they have found hope with Dennis Schroder and Paul Milsap. Shroder is currently averaging 17.2 points per game while Milsap is averaging 17.5 and 8.2 rebounds.

The Hawks, who currently stand at 14-15, will look to bounce back during a trip to Colorado as they take on the Denver Nuggets.
