  1. Coach calls Durant doubtful for Thunders’ Friday game

    Mar 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Kevin Durant dunks

    Kevin Durant says he can go Friday for the Thunder against the Hawks. Coach Scott Brooks called him doubtful after Durant sat out practice Thursday. Take the coach in this one. Nothing has been decided, according to the Oklahoman, and Durant was walking around practice without a protective boot. But as he is the franchise…

  2. It’s official, Mike Bibby is a member of the Heat

    Mar 3, 2011, 12:50 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    No surprise here, but it became official, Mike Bibby has signed with the Miami Heat the team announced. “We want to welcome Mike Bibby as we continue to move into the direction of our championship dreams,” said Heat President Pat Riley. “We feel Mike, with his vast postseason experience, long range game and point guard…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago gives one up to Atlanta

    Mar 3, 2011, 9:36 AM EST

    Bulls Hawks Basketball

    What you missed because you have tiger blood…. Atlanta 83, Chicago 80: Chicago was going to win ugly — this was not a pretty game as both teams struggled to score. However, the Bulls raced out to a 14-0 lead to start the game and held that lead for the first 47:31 of this game,…

  4. Winderman: It’s time for built-in buyouts in NBA contracts

    Mar 2, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    One of the prime sticking points in the negotiations for a new NBA collective-bargaining agreement is maximum contract length. Currently, players can be signed for up to six seasons. Management wants far shorter terms. Based on the machinations at the buyout deadline, the players certainly are fueling management’s argument. Even with time left on the…

  5. Report: Wizards buy Mike Bibby out; he’ll sign with Heat

    Feb 28, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    UPDATE 3:30 pm: According to Sam Amick, Bibby intends to sign with the Miami Heat once he clears waivers. Amick also notes that Bibby will take about $6 million less to get out of his current deal. Miami seems a good fit for what Bibby brings to the table — floor-spacing three-point shooting. That’s about…

  6. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Feb 27, 2011, 10:15 PM EST

    rasual butler

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  7. Mike Fratello to coach Ukrainian national team

    Feb 25, 2011, 8:59 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    The Czar (of the telestrator) is headed to the old Soviet bloc. Mike Fratello, the former NBA coach and current TNT color commentator, will coach the Ukrainian national team at the European Championships this summer, according to the Associated Press. Hopefully they like slow it down, grind it out, defensive basketball that Fratello was known…

  8. Mike Bibby wants a buyout in Washington, likely to be disappointed

    Feb 25, 2011, 10:55 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    Atlanta did the right thing — they needed Mike Bibby gone and any other point guard in. Kirk Hinrich is an upgrade. But it’s easy to see why Bibby is unhappy — he went from the starting point guard on a playoff team to being John Wall’s understudy on a lottery team. Bibby wants a…

  9. Hawks trade for Kirk Hinrich

    Feb 23, 2011, 7:48 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, rookie Jordan Crawford, and a #1 pick to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. This deal fills an obvious need for the Hawks. Mike Bibby is still a sharpshooter, but he has contributed in…

  10. Lakers remind fans why maybe they shouldn’t worry so much

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Those looked like the Lakers everyone expects to see. The Lakers who showed up at Staples Center Tuesday night were up double-digits in the first quarter on a pretty good Hawks team. Those Lakers cruised to a 104-80 win. Those Lakers looked nothing like the ones that dropped three straight games at the end of…

  11. Ramon Sessions draws interest from Knicks, Hawks, Blazers

    Feb 17, 2011, 4:26 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    We’re members of the Ramon Sessions fan club. He’s not going to make you forget about Chris Paul, but he’s a quality point guard who plays within himself. He’s quick (clearly a lot quicker than Derek Fisher and Steve Blake after dropping 32 on the Lakers Wednesday), he’s good in transition and impressive on the…

  12. The Atlanta Hawks are a bit of a mess

    Feb 9, 2011, 7:31 PM EST

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Even with their best player out of action, the Atlanta Hawks had no business being completely eviscerated by the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. Philly is a solid team, but Atlanta is supposedly superior. They’re supposedly worthy of their decent seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, even if their efficiency differential puts them just…

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

    Feb 6, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    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.

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

    Feb 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    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…

  16. Hawks and Knicks have a throwdown

    Jan 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    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?…

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

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    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…

  18. Curiously, Jeff Teague remains glued to the bench

    Jan 24, 2011, 7:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 22, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 20, 2011, 4:56 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:44 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 19, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EST

    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…

  25. Hawks, Bucks game snowed out

    Jan 11, 2011, 2:23 PM EST

    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…
