Ersan Ilyasova had a nice night on Wednesday, pouring in 20 points with nine rebounds, one steal, two turnovers and three 3-pointers in the Hawks’ win over the Wizards.
Ilyasova is catching fire these last few games. In three consecutive games now, Ilyasova has put together performances of 22 points, 21 points and now 20. He’s hit nine 3s in that time and his rebounding is climbing. When the season started, the expectation was that somebody would have to score for the Hawks and Ilyasova was the number one candidate. It’s finally kicking in as Ersan is really starting to take off.
