Hawks Vs. Mavericks: Larry Drew pleased with offensive execution

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Atlanta Hawks knocked off the Dallas Mavericks 110-94 on Saturday and after, head coach Larry Drew said he was pleased with the offensive performance.

While he often harps on defense, Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew was quick to praise the Hawks' offensive performance in Atlanta's 110-94 win against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.

Drew was particularly pleased with the way the Hawks moved the ball on offense. He said Atlanta has guys who can make shots and when the Hawks play unselfish and pass the ball from one side of the court to the other, they can be effective.

"When we are making shots and executing offensively we're pretty good," Drew said, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Atlanta finished Saturday's game with 24 assists on 37 made baskets. The Hawks also shot the ball well from the floor, making 45.7 percent of their field goal attempts. Drew said the team needs to continue to move the ball and get it to open shooters. While he said he will continue to harp on playing good defense, he noted a good offense can help.

"I talk a lot about defense but in some instances a good defense is a solid offense," Drew said.

Atlanta will wrap up the preseason with its final exhibition game on Friday against the Detroit Pistons.
