Demarre Carroll has scored 20+ points in 5 straight playoff games. He has started these games with more intensity than any other player. Coach Bud needs to learn from his San Antonio mentor Coach Popovich and turn Carroll loose.
The Hawks trademark crisp passing has gotten bogged down late in these playoff games. Carroll scores most of his points in 1st half with his aggressive play. In the 2nd half he has noticeably less shots, and does not get the touches he had earlier in the game. As he posted on social media ‘I’m mad’ He,and to some degree Mike Scott bring a needed ‘edge to the team’s mannerly demeanor. Finding shots for Demarre Carroll late in games will be the key to the Hawks winning going forward
