Dylan briefly recaps the Hawks season opener in which they lost to the Hornets and Dylan dubs the game a “tail of two halves” as they played well in the first half, however second half was all Charlotte, despite a big fourth quarter by Atlanta. Dylan adds that he believes the Hawks went away from what was working for them well early on, which was getting to the basket, instead they appeared to “settle” for shots. And in the loss, Dylan states that he believes that Jaen Johnson was a bright spot for the Hawks and “proving he’s that dude”.
