DeMarre Carroll returns from injury and picks up where he left off

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

DeMarre Carroll returned from a hamstring injury Saturday night to help lead the Atlanta Hawks to a rout of the Milwaukee Bucks.

DeMarre Carroll returned from a hamstring injury a game early and helped spark a shorthanded Atlanta Hawks squad to a 112-87 road win over the Milwauke Bucks. Carroll picked up right where he left off in the game finishing with 12 points and six rebounds in 24 minutes.

"Once I'm on the court, I'm on the court," he said. "My mind goes to junkyard dog mode, and I just grind it out. I have to give credit to the training staff. I got treatment like three or four times today."

Our own Daniel Christian pointed out the importance of Carroll to the Hawks earlier this week. He continues to surprise with an improving perimeter shot and an efficient game. Carroll went 4-5 against the Bucks and was 3-3 from three-point range.

In Carroll's last four games he is averaging 15.3 points and 5.3 rebounds while going 23-34 from the field. He's already set career high's in minutes played along with three pointers made and attempted. He's also set career marks in rebounds and assists.

On Saturday, Carroll did what he has been doing all season long, he gave the Hawks a lift.
