Atlanta Hawks

  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where teams can’t hit the three but keep shooting them anyway

    Jan 19, 2011, 2:09 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    What you missed while wondering if banning a Dire Straits song makes any sense… Hawks 93, Heat 89 (OT): These two teams combined to take 61 shots from three on the night even though combined they made just 14 (23 percent). That kind of sums up this game — a lot of bad decisions and…

  2. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  3. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  4. Hawks, Bucks game snowed out

    Jan 11, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    U.S. South Hit By Crippling Winter Storm

    As we said might happen, due to unusually heavy snows that have essentially shut Atlanta down, the league has decided to postpone the Haws/Bucks game scheduled for Tuesday at Phillips Arena. The game has been rescheduled for March 15 Philips Arena in Atlanta. This is probably the smart move — last night the Bobcats hosted…

  5. Hawks may postpone game due to Atlanta weather conditions

    Jan 11, 2011, 12:18 PM EDT

    U.S. South Hit By Crippling Winter Storm

    Can you snow out a basketball game? Apparently it might happen in Atlanta, a city that usually gets a dusting of snow each winter but has been hit with a legitimate blizzard the last 24 hours. That has led the Hawks to consider postponing their scheduled game Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to…

  6. Is a triple-double worth running it up? The Ibaka-Hawks conundrum

    Jan 2, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    New Year’s Eve, the Thunder managed a solid win against the Hawks, and were up 101-92 with less than 24 seconds remaining. Game over, baby. Except that Russell Westbrook was one assist shy of a triple-double. Serge Ibaka leaked out in transition, caught an outlet, and dunked it home, making it 103-92. Okay, Ibaka was…

  7. Marvin Williams may miss west road trip for Hawks

    Dec 30, 2010, 2:40 PM EDT

    marvin_williams

    The Atlanta Hawks are heading west for four games but Marvin Williams will be visiting the MRI machine back in Atlanta instead. Williams will be out for the start of the trip according to a tweet from Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He has what is officially being called a bruised lower back…

  8. Atlanta’s point guard conundrum

    Dec 28, 2010, 10:27 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    At Summer League, the Atlanta Hawks coaching staff was trying to pump Jeff Teague full of confidence — he could be the starting point guard for the Hawks if he would just take the job away from Mike Bibby. He needed to find his dog. The job is available because the Hawks have a problem…

  9. Larry Drew latest in long line of coaches to talk shot selection with Josh Smith

    Dec 28, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith’s unwavering confidence in his midrange jump shot is to be admired — he sticks with it in the face of all available evidence that he shouldn’t take it. There is something impressive about that stubbornness. In the Atlanta Hawks six games before Monday night Smith has taken 33 shots from beyond 15 feet…

  10. Lakers’ Devin Ebanks among three sent to D-League around NBA today

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    The trend of NBA teams using the D-League like a real minor league — which it is but wasn’t really used like it — continues with three more NBA players under rookie contracts being sent down for seasoning Monday. The biggest name is Devin Ebanks, the Lakers second-round pick who has played in 12 games…

  11. Hawks ownership ends long-running dispute with buyout

    Dec 23, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Image (1) hawks_logo-thumb-250x134-11979-thumb-250x134-11981.gif for post 4050

    No general manager in the league had quite the challenges in getting a deal approved that Rick Sund had in Atlanta. That’s because the Hawks (and the NHL’s Thrashers and Phillips Arena where they all play) are owned by Atlanta Spirit, a group of owners who made decisions as a group. Want to get approval…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Magic need a little more practice together.

    Dec 21, 2010, 3:07 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas, Jeff Teague

    What you missed while wondering what happens when architects play too much Tetris… Dallas beating the Heat again — hey, have another team meeting! — is our game of the night. Hawks 91, Magic 81: It’s going to take some time for the Magic to figure this all out. They started Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson,…

  13. Hawks Joe Johnson returns from elbow surgery

    Dec 17, 2010, 8:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) jjohnson_locker-thumb-250x140-14871.jpg for post 2847

    We were not expecting to see Joe Johnson return to the Hawks lineup after elbow surgery until we had all sung Auld Lang Syne and then the next morning tried to remember through the blur what we had done the night before for New Year’s Eve. But there he was Friday night, starting for the…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Some nights Atlanta can just shoot the rock

    Dec 8, 2010, 3:01 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    What you missed while remembering the lives lost at Pearl Harbor… The Wizards making a game of it against the Lakers is our game of the night. Hawks 116, Nets 101: Atlanta just shot lights out — 60.3 percent on the night and a solid 37.5 percent from three. Josh Smith had 34 on 14…

  15. Cleveland fans chant “traitor” at LeBron in Miami Restaurant

    Dec 7, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    After the Miami Heat beat the Atlanta Hawks for a fourth straight win Saturday, LeBron James and his best friend and manager Maverick Carter went out for dinner at Myles Chefetz’s Prime Italian in Miami. A regular Saturday night. Well, it would have been except that also in the restaurant were about 30 Cleveland Brown…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Get Mike Bibby into the three-point shooting contest

    Dec 7, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic

    The highlights from Monday night. Chicago beating Oklahoma City was our game of the night. Hawks 80, Magic 74: Who is the best three point shooter in the NBA so far this season? Mike Bibby at 53 percent. Yes, that Mike Bibby. So with the Hawks up three and 30 seconds to go, who do…

  17. Dwight Howard likely for Monday night as Magic gets over flu

    Dec 6, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    howardface

    It looks like the Magic will be nearly back on their feet Monday night after a stomach virus left the team on its back — or more accurately, kneeling over a toilet — for the past week. Stan Van Gundy said that Dwight Howard was taking IV fluids Monday and the coach was “optomistic” he…

  18. Heat grants 8-year-old boy belated birthday wish

    Dec 4, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    Christian Lambert is one happy boy tonight. Lambert for his eighth birthday gift didn’t want the Lego Star Wars for Wii (which is crazy, I want that) — he wanted to go see the Miami Heat play. So his parents splurged and bought him tickets to go see the Heat take on the Orlando Magic…

  19. Hawks sign Damien Wilkins, nephew of Dominique Wilkins

    Dec 3, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    Damien Wilkins

    The name Wilkins will once again be across the back of a Hawks jersey. The Hawks have signed Damien Wilkins — nephew of Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins — to a contract, the team announced. The details were not announced but this is certainly a non-guaranteed, minimum money deal. Wilkins has spent six years in the…

  20. Atlanta Hawks not going to miss Joe Johnson all that much

    Dec 2, 2010, 2:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    When a team’s leading scorer and acknowledged biggest star is going to be out for a month, the usual question is: Can they hold on? In Atlanta, it’s more like “Will it really matter?” Joe Johnson — the guy who got a bigger contract than LeBron James this summer — is going to be out…

  21. Hawks Joe Johnson out 4-6 weeks after elbow surgery

    Dec 1, 2010, 7:37 PM EDT

    Image (1) jjohnson_locker-thumb-250x140-14871.jpg for post 2847

    Joe Johnson, the Atlanta Hawks leading scorer and go-to guy in the clutch, will miss 4-6 weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, according to a tweet by Hawks public relations guy Arthur Triche. Johnson was out Wednesday night against the Grizzlies, with Mo Evans getting the start. Also, expect to see more…

  22. Games of the night: Where the Clippers pair beats the Kings pair

    Nov 26, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    gordon_griffin_clippers

    We hope you missed these games because you were with family and giving thanks, or at least because you were rooting against the Cowboys… Hawks 116, Wizards 96: The Hawks played their best game in a couple weeks, which started with them getting the ball inside. With JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche the Wizards have…

  23. Larry Drew thinks Hawks may be more into partying than playing

    Nov 23, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    The Boston Celtics came into Atlanta on the second night of a back-to-back and played with a Hoover Dam’s worth of more electricity and energy than their hosts. The Celtics were pissed about losses, the Hawks were… We don’t know. Hawks coach Larry Drew doesn’t know. But in some of the most direct post-game comments…

  24. Jamal Crawford is in a contract year and that’s a bad thing.

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Often, guys have record years when they are playing for a new contract (or at least they are more aggressive and take more shots, so their point total goes up). It is having the opposite impact on Jamal Crawford. Cawford this season has not been the same guy who won the Sixth Man of the…

  25. Josh Smith says Hawks not planning to trade him

    Nov 22, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Josh Smith has come up in a lot of rumors lately, from the ridiculous (Rip Hamilton, really?) to big move stuff like Steve Nash rumors. With Al Horford inked to a big deal, can they really keep Smith long term, too? But the Hawks told Josh Smith he’s not going anywhere, which is what Smith…
