At 32:18, the third section went to the hosts, who were still freezing in the first half and only converted 29.2 percent from the field (2/12 3FG). But Rose (26 points, 9/21 FG) and the previously weak Julius Randle (15, 5/16 FG, 12 rebounds, 4 turnover) subsequently played strongly, as did Reggie Bullock (15, 4/7 FG), RJBarrett (13, 5/14 FG) or Taj Gibson (6 and 7) had good scenes.

The three-way quota of 36.4 percent (12/33 FG) was finally passable. Rose’s reservists contributed more than half with 55 points, while the starters Elfrid Payton (1, 0/2 FG) and Nerlens Noel (2, 5 rebounds) were not a factor. The decisive factor was the superiority in the zone, 13 offensive rebounds were also reflected on the scoreboard (42:28 points).

With the Hawks, Trae Young had another good day after 32 points in Game 1 (30, 11/20 FG, 7 assists), but he did not receive constant support, neither from Bogdan Bogdanovic (18, 2/13 3FG), De ‘ Andre Hunter (18, 3/10 FG) still from Danilo Gallinari (6, 2/9 3FG). As a team, Atlanta got 27.3 percent from a distance (12/44). Clint Capela cleaned up properly under the baskets, next to 5 blocks he grabbed 12 rebounds.
