Perhaps Mike Scott was angry that only the Atlanta Hawks’ starters were named Eastern Conference Players of the Month? That’s the only explanation for a nasty slam like this. Watch Atlanta’s sharp-shooting reserve show off his hops by rising over Bradley Beal for an epic poster dunk in his team’s 105-96 win over the Washington Wizards.
Kevin Harlan voice: “With no regard for human life!”
Scott and the rest of the Hawks’ bench combined for 27 points on just 19 shots in the victory over their Southeastern Division rivals. It was a lineup consisting of Scott, Dennis Schröder, and Kent Bazemore that stretched Atlanta’s three-point lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter to seven midway through it, too.
Might they be gunning for February’s Player(s) of the Month honor? Perhaps. And considering the Hawks’ storybook season thus far, it’d be remiss to put it past them.
