Atlanta Hawks 2018-19 Midterm Grades

We have officially hit the halfway point of the 2018-19 NBA Season. The Atlanta Hawks have played 41 games so far, amassing a record of 12-29 (good for 12th in the Eastern Conference and the 5th worst in the league). Over the course of the first half of this year this team has shown massive growth. After starting the season as a doormat for the rest of the league, the young Hawks have gotten their act together and can now stand toe-to-toe with most opposing teams on a nightly basis.

As the team has grown, so to have the players. Below, you will find the latest batch of The Bball Index Player Grades. The goal of these grades is to account for a player’s fit and role within their specific team’s offensive scheme to better understand the impact any given player is having on their team. This is the third batch of grades for Atlanta, we have previously detailed the 2017-18 end of season grades, and gave our first update of the 2018-19 season 26 games into this year.

(Editor’s Note: All grades are current as of games played on 01/06/19)
