Hawks vs Mavericks: Atlanta Hawks dominate Dallas Mavericks, defeat them 113-87 in the opening game of NBA 2021/22 season- This matchup is less of a competition and more of a confrontation between the league’s youngest, brightest stars: Luka Doncic and Trae Young.

Cam Reddish scored 20 points, Trae Young added 19 and the Atlanta Hawks began a season of high expectations with a 113-87 rout of Luka Doncic and the Mavericks on Thursday night, ruining the debut of Dallas coach Jason Kidd.

Coming off a remarkable run to the Eastern Conference final, the Hawks took charge of the game with a powerful third quarter, widening a 51-44 halftime lead to 86-64 heading to the fourth.

After a sluggish start, Young scored 12 points and dished out nine assists in the crucial period, drawing chants of “MVP! MVP!” from the home crowd in the very first game.

Reddish led a stellar force from the deep Hawks bench, which added 44 points.

The Mavericks were completely inferior in their first game under Kidd, who had not been a head coach since he was fired in Milwaukee during the 2017-18 season.

A member of the NBA’s 75th-anniversary team, Kidd took over in Dallas after longtime coach Rick Carlisle stepped down on the heels of a first-round playoff loss last season.
