  • Hawks' Skylar Mays: Unproductive despite 31 minutes

    Mays ended Wednesday's 131-117 loss to Chicago with seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes.

    Mays was disappointing in the loss, failing to capitalize on his opportunity. With the Hawks continuing to battle through multiple player absences, Mays should have a small window in which to redeem himself, for anyone that has taken a flier on him. However, as soon as the team is back to full strength, he will quietly fade into the night and return to the deeper league list of names.

  • Hawks' Skylar Mays: Steps up in second start

    Mays had 14 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Thursday's 98-96 victory over Philadelphia.

    Called up from the G League earlier in the week amid several COVID-related absences, Mays started for the second straight game but was much more effective Thursday than he was Wednesday against Orlando (zero points in nine minutes). The 2020 second-rounder had arguably his best game as a pro, notching his first career double-double while helping lead the Hawks to an upset victory over a significantly more healthy Sixers team. Mays may hang onto his starting spot for another couple of games, but once the Hawks get the likes of Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, and Cam Reddish back, he could return to the G League.
