Though Trae Young’s sneakers proclaimed him the “King of Broadway,” Julius Randle was the one who ruled things inside Madison Square Garden as the Knicks routed the Hawks, who lost another starter when Dejounte Murray went down.

Here’s something fun. Hawks guard Dejounte Murray has been shooting 48.9% from 3 over the last 6 games on 7.8 attempts per game.
A big factor in that has, of course, been his performance in Houston last month where he was 8-13 from 3.
He’s shooting 36.6% from 3 over 24 games. – 11:09 AM

More on this storyline

They shook up their roster last summer, acquiring DeJounte Murray from the Spurs and sending Kevin Huerter to the Kings, but they’re still struggling to stay above .500, and league sources say John Collins, whose relationship with Young has shown signs of strain, wouldn’t mind going elsewhere now that the Murray-Young backcourt has made him a distant third option. “They’ve got to do something,” said one Eastern Conference scout. “I don’t know that their owner is willing to pay the luxury tax for a team just scraping into the playoffs.” -via FoxSports.com / December 6, 2022
Atlanta Hawks PR: Dejounte Murray has swiped at least two steals in 14 of Atlanta’s 24 games this season. Heading into tonight’s contest, Murray was ranked fourth in steals per game (1.83) and tied second in deflections per game (3.7). -via Twitter @HawksPR / December 5, 2022
