Kevin Huerter 25 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (2/7/2020)

I tuned in to this game right when it started, hoping to catch some primo Trae Young action. But apparently something happened to him, because he wasn’t on the court when the opening tip happened, and he sure as heck doesn’t come off the bench (like his idol, Allen Iverson). I stuck it out for…

Kevin Huerter 23 Points Full Highlights (2/3/2020)

Kevin “Kevin Huerant” Huerter convincingly beat his previous career-high in shots attempted, which was eighteen, by attempting 21 shots in this game. For a guy who’s not really known as a gunner, that’s a surprisingly large amount of shots. Maybe he had a bet with a teammate that he could shoot it twenty times. Or…

Kevin Huerter 20 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (2/1/2020)

Kevin “Butthuerter” Huerter was sizzling at the beginning of this game. Sizzling to the point that I expected one of either Dominique Wilkins or Bob Rathbun to allege that Huerter was “red hot”. But it never happened. Is that too obvious a quip to say out loud during the broadcast? Or did they never think…

Kevin Huerter 18 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2020)

The slump that Kevin Huerter was in for the first two months of the season is behind us now. It’s in the past. It’s forgotten. After that worrying reversal in development, which defied the “young players will usually get better and not worse” paradigm, the reversal has been unreversed, and Huerter is now back on…

Kevin Huerter 18 Points/1 Game-Winner Full Highlights (1/17/2020)

There are many adjectives which apply to Kevin Huerter: red-haired, tall, alive, ambulant, the list could go on and on, not literally forever but pretty close. But there was one adjective that was not on that list, that can now be placed there: Clutch. It’s possible that that adjective was already applicable to him, actually….

Kevin Huerter 23 Points/15 Rebounds/8 Assists Full Highlights (1/14/2020)

Kevin “Prime Nikola Jokic” Huerter is, if you couldn’t tell by his nickname (which he has had since he was in high school, I definitely did not come up with it just now or anything), is playing like a prime Nikola Jokic in the last few games. And if by “last few games”, you mean…

Kevin Huerter 22 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (1/6/2020)

I’m just going to go ahead and declare this the fourth consecutive win for the Hawks. Sure, in their last four games, they’ve only “won” (according to the arcane and outmoded regulations of the NBA) two of those games, but the other two should be wins. Not just moral victories. Straight-up wins. And I will…

Kevin Huerter 26 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/4/2020)

The Hawks won a game! Against a good team! All it took was Trae Young to do his usual Herculean things, and for Kevin Huerter to actually provide him with some help for once. The Hawks had had a lot of losses recently, and I felt like things were starting to become unraveled. Evidence of…

Kevin Huerter 17 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/3/2020)

When the Hawks were up 29-11 in the first quarter against the Celtics, I was ready to drink the soothing nectar of Celtics fan tears. To get blown out so thoroughly by a team that is usually the one getting blown out would not only shatter the faith that Celtics fans had in their team,…

Kevin Huerter 19 Points Full Highlights (12/30/2019)

I’m sure I’m not the only one who was expecting a little more out of Kevin Huerter this year. He hasn’t regressed too badly, just a small dip in percentages and slightly fewer minutes, I would hardly qualify it as a regression at all, but just standing pat is not what young players are supposed…
