Atlanta Hawks

  1. Kyle Korver will fire from arc Friday to set new NBA all-time three point streak

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will…

  2. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  3. Wednesday night NBA Grades: LaMarcus Aldridge is a flat out stud

    Dec 5, 2013, 2:20 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Our nightly look around the NBA, or what you missed while figuring out how to use lasers to mark the first down line in the a football game…. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. For my money right now he is the best power forward in the game. I’d rather have him over Kevin Love or…

  4. Wednesday And-1 Links: Former NBAer Keon Clark sentenced to 8 years in prison

    Dec 4, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    Keon Clark smiles

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Former NBA player Keon Clark has been sentenced to 8 years in prison,…

  5. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  6. Tim Duncan with the cold-blooded game winner over Hawks (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2013, 11:07 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    That’s about as much emotion as Tim Duncan shows on the court. Duncan became the oldest player in NBA history to notch a 20-20 (23 points, 21 rebounds) and he capped it off with this game winner to lift the Spurs over the Hawks Monday night, 102-100. So much for the struggling Duncan we had…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Heat and a lot from out West at the top

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

  8. PBT Roundtable: Who’s third best in the East?

    Nov 28, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question:  The Heat and the Pacers have been the clear class of the Eastern Conference so far, but who is the third best team there right now? Who will be at the end of the…

  9. Kyle Korver nearing NBA record for three-pointers made in consecutive games

    Nov 25, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Kyle Korver has always been known as one of the league’s more consistent three-point shooters throughout his NBA career. Now in his 12th season, he seems to be getting better with age. Korver is shooting 52.9 percent from three-point distance so far this season, after finishing at 45.7 percent last year, which was good enough…

  10. Paul Millsap throws one down on Jared Sullinger (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap isn’t known as a huge dunker around the league. He’s a guy who does most of his work under the rim, not above it. Still, if he builds up enough momentum, Millsap is big enough and athletic enough to dish out some damage. If you see Millsap rumbling towards the…

  11. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  12. Josh Smith says what we all knew: Atlanta made no effort to re-sign him

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Atlanta Hawks were moving on. Danny Ferry, formerly of the Spurs organization, went and poached Gregg Popovich’s lead assistant Mike Budenholzer, and they are trying to create San Antonio East in the ATL. With Al Horford in the role of Tim Duncan. Josh Smith wasn’t part of those plans. Smith will face the Hawks…

  13. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  14. Atlanta Hawks get Lou Williams back in rotation

    Nov 16, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Lou Williams

    When he entered his first NBA game in 10 months since he tore his ACL, Lou Williams did pretty much exactly what he did when the injury occurred — he used his quickness to drive the lane to the right, finishing it off the glass over the defender. It was a very good sign. The…

  15. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  16. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  17. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  18. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

  19. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  20. The Extra Pass: Boxed out and Thursday’s Recaps

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    You probably already know what I’m going to say about Shane Battier before I even say it. For 12 seasons, Battier has largely defied conventional box scores by doing all the things that don’t show up there. It’s been a long-standing feud between Battier and the box score, really, but it’s a feud that Battier…

  21. Kings’ coach Malone calls out DeMarcus Cousins’ post defense

    Nov 7, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The evolution of DeMarcus Cousins and Sacramento Kings leader is still ongoing. It’s the same old situation with him — video tape cleared him of a flagrant foul call and led to a suspension for Atlanta’s Dennis Schroeder for hitting Cousins in the groin; but he was having a bad game before and lost his…

  22. Hawks rookie Dennis Schroder suspended one game for punch to the groin of DeMarcus Cousins (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Dennis Schroder, Rudy Gay, Amir Johnson

    Hawks rookie Dennis Schroder has been suspended one game for “striking DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings in the groin,” the league announced on Thursday. The suspension is warranted, of course, but the most incredible part of the play was the fact that the referees didn’t feel the need to whistle Schroder for the foul.…

  23. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  24. DeMarcus Cousins benched at end of game, is ticked about “low blow” from Dennis Schroder

    Nov 6, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    It has long been the book on DeMarcus Cousins — you can get under his skin, cause him to lose focus and rather than being a dominant force he becomes a detriment to his team. Exactly how it went down Tuesday night is up to interpretation but one basic fact is not — new coach…

  25. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…
