The Golden State Warriors will face the Atlanta Hawks tonight, as two of the best three-point shooters in the league go head-to-head. For the Warriors, they are coming off a humiliating loss to the Raptors. The 53-point loss to the Raptors is the third-worst in franchise history. In fact, the Warriors have lost six of their last seven games and risk missing the playoffs with continued poor performances.

For the Hawks, on the other hand, they have been improving this year. Currently, the Hawks occupy the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. Trae Young has been playing really well and showing that he can develop with the team. However, they are still not a lock for the playoffs, as the team is just barely above .500 this season.

With that in mind, let us take a look at the Warriors taking on the Hawks.
