Dejounte Murray’s pre-season debut as an Atlanta Hawk: 25 PTS/8 REB/9 AST/2 BLK

519 Upvotes

25 PTS

8 REB

9 AST

2 BLKS

9-13 FG

Traded from San Antonio to the Atlanta Hawks this off-season, great start for him so far. Dejounte played great defense which was needed for a team which had one of the worst defense’s in the league despite their offense. Dejounte worked well with Trae who scored 22 points and had 3 assists. Could the addition of Murray help elevate this Hawks team to the next level? What are your thoughts?

The Toronto Raptors have installed a new Jumbotron in their practice facility to retrieve real-time stats.

"The analytics is crazy," said Christian Koloko, Toronto's 2022 second-round pick. "Every time you shoot they tell you how off your shot was, like if the [arc] was 45 degrees. So we got everything, we got everything to get you better."

Pretty interesting, are any other teams doing this? Its basically a feedback loop in realtime to figure out WHY the shot went in or not.

Reminds me of a golf simulator showing every factor of your golf shot and what to focus on.
