Atlanta has been playing with a little fire of late, ever since the hot Knicks (winners of eight in a row heading into Sunday night) put pressure on them for the final playoff spot in the East. This was the kind of loss the Hawks can’t afford if they want to make the postseason. Atlanta…

The Atlanta Hawks are in a tight race with the Toronto Raptors for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. Just a half game separates the teams, so every little difference counts. But it probably doesn’t matter which team gets that third spot, as long as the loser doesn’t fall to No. 5. As…

Since Al Horford went down for the season the Hawks have leaned pretty heavily on rookie Pero Antic — and he’s been solid. In the last three games he’s averaged better than 12 points and 7 rebounds playing at least 23 minutes a night, and on the season he is shooting 36.7 percent from three.…

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,…

Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

DeShawn Stevenson started 31 games for the Hawks last season, but as the team continues its summer overhaul of the roster, Stevenson and his contract of $2.2 million are now a thing of the past. Atlanta has waived Stevenson and will replace him by signing DeMarre Carroll, according to a report from Chris Vivlamore of…

I was a little ticked when the basketball court at my gym was down for 10 days or so because somebody broke the rim out of the backboard with a dunk. That said, I also wanted to shake that guy’s hand. At one gym in Utah, members can be ticked at/shake the hand of DeMarre…

The Celtics were already pretty old to start the season. When Rajon Rondo tore his ACL, they got older. When rookie forward Jared Sullinger went out for the season, they were about as young as a men’s rec league team. Older doesn’t necessarily mean worse, of course. Doc Rivers called it when the injuries happened…

The Utah Jazz are not the most talented team in the Western Conference, but they work hard. Every possession, every game. That is far more than the Lakers, who showed no passion or consistent effort on the defensive end. Starting with their stars and filtering down to everyone. The result of that sad effort was…

This is about Chris Paul being Chris Paul and making the play that put the Clippers up for good and got them the win. But it’s also about the Jazz defense and how they miss Derrick Favors. Paul called DeAndre Jordan out and uses the screen well to pick-off DeMarre Carroll, but notice how Al…

The Utah Jazz have a lot of youth on the wing, but they still want to add one veteran to the mix to balance it out. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Jazz have interest in bringing back Josh Howard for another season (even though he is looking around and worked out for the…

The Charlotte Observer reports that Josh Howard, who is from Carolina and attended Wake Forest, is in Charlotte working out for the Bobcats as he continues to look for an NBA team. Former Wake Forest forward Josh Howard is doing some workouts with the Charlotte Bobcats this week, president of basketball operations Rod Higgins confirmed.…
