2018 Season Player Recap: Taurean Prince

Prince took the next step his second season.

In his second season with the Hawks, Prince accomplished an impressive feat not many Hawks players can say they did. Prince started all 82 games this season while averaging 14.1 points with 4.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists. There were very high points for Prince this season along with his woes. He really came into his own towards the end of the season when he really got comfortable with his 3 point shot, especially in 1 game where he attempted 18 threes.

High Points:


In the second half of the season he became the aggressive scorer the Hawks needed including two games where he dropped 38.

And to top it off he had 22 points against the suns where he had a game winner.


Low Points:

In early January Prince dislocated his finger and it seemed to throw off his shot and he went through a cold stretch, he finally broke it against Charlotte but up until that point it was brutal to watch. During the stretch he hardly could get to double digit points and wasn’t shooting the ball efficiently which led to being benched in one game against the Raptors.

Prince showed that he’s the new Hawks go to scorer and will be entertaining to watch. So here’s to Prince lighting it up next season. I believe he will average above 20 points per game, and we wont finish last in the East again.
