  1. Video: Get out of Al Thornton’s way

    Feb 6, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Al Thornton

    Al Thornton can get up. As proof, we bring you this. We should add that apparently Zaza Pachulia is not intimidating anyone from going to the rim. But this is one of the better dunks of the season. It might even crack Blake Griffin‘s top 10.

  2. Blake Griffin shows Al Horford he could start for Steelers Sunday, loses game

    Feb 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    In a development that’s certain not to spark useless debates between people regarding the words “excessive,” “soft,” and “good hard fouls,” Blake Griffin fouled the ever loving mercy out of Al Horford on a last second game-winning drive attempt. Griffin went straight up, kind of, rose both arms to block the shot, made a play…

  3. Marvin Williams and Shawne Williams receive suspensions for rough housing

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    So like we said, that fracas last night in the Knicks-Hawks game was was severe enough to land a few suspensions. The NBA has suspended Marvin Williams of the Hawks two games and Shawne Williams of the Knicks one game for ‘scuffling and tuffling’ as I like to imagine Clyde Frazier would say. The two…

  4. Hawks and Knicks have a throwdown

    Jan 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    Well, no one hit anyone in their junk, but turns out Celtics-Suns wasn’t the only dust-up Friday night. In the fourth quarter of the Hawks’ comfortable win over the Knicks, two players got tangled up, and punches were thrown. Now, having known that, what two players would you guess were involved? Wilson Chandler? Zaza Pachulia?…

  5. Report: Damien Wilkins signed by Hawks for rest of season

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Damien Wilkins

    The Hawks didn’t bring in Damien Wilkins as a legacy, they brought him in because they thought he could play. And they liked what they have seen. The Hawks have signed Wilkins through the end of the season, according to a tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo. Wilkins is the nephew of Hawks legend Dominique…

  6. Curiously, Jeff Teague remains glued to the bench

    Jan 24, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    Image (1) jeffteague.jpg for post 4251

    Jeff Teague is no star. He’s a second-year guard who isn’t great at initiating the offense, and isn’t much of a perimeter shooter. He isn’t the type of talent who demands playing time, but merely suggests it politely with each correctly executed possession. He makes mistakes, doesn’t often induce awe, and clearly has a lot…

  7. The Hornets beat the Hawks… no, we mean the Hornets really beat the Hawks

    Jan 22, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Hawks v Timberwolves

    This game changes nothing. That should be clear. The Atlanta Hawks were never contenders in anyone’s eye, not seriously, and this loss doesn’t preclude them from some insane, fueled by desire, special combination of events championship that happens once in a lifetime against all odds. It makes it less likely, because, well, who lets that…

  8. Latest scorekeeper snafu: Mike Bibby’s missing assist

    Jan 20, 2011, 4:56 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution noted a bit of a scorekeeping oddity in his practice report, which can be chalked up to simple oversight or collusion against the visiting team depending on how quickly you take to conspiracy theories. Those who made it through to the end of Miami and Atlanta’s slugfest on…

  9. Dunk of the night: Let’s not forget Josh Smith can throw it down

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    The Atlanta Hawks can be so much fun in transition, you wonder why they play at the 23rd fastest pace in the league? In transition you get you get to see Atlanta create chances with their athleticism. Two parts of this dunk are impressive. Of course, there is Josh Smith of the Hawks running the…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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,…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
