Jamal Crawford

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    SEASON RECORDS Bulls: 62-20 (No. 1 seed in East) Hawks: 44-38(No. 5 seed) SEASON SERIES Bulls 2-1, all three games took place in a three-week span in March. The Hawks win was by three points at home, the Bulls two wins (one at home, one on the road) were by 18 and 33 points. PLAYOFF…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta wins ugly, but moves on to the second round

    Apr 29, 2011, 1:23 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    In all honesty, I would never wish repeat viewing of the Atlanta Hawks’ series-clinching victory over the Orlando Magic on my worst enemy. The on-court product was brutal. Neither team could convert any of their shots, the turnovers were many, and the execution on the whole was fairly awful. Atlanta’s 39.2 percent shooting from the…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Hawks look for close out, Magic look for threes

    Apr 28, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Five

    The dynamics of this series — the dynamics that put the Atlanta up 3-1 and give them to close out Orlando on Thursday night at home in Game 6 — have not changed. Atlanta will largely single-cover Dwight Howard and he will put up impressive numbers. Hedo Turkoglu will stink. Jamal Crawford will again have…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Magic demolish the Hawks, turn the series on its head

    Apr 26, 2011, 10:44 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Five

    On Tuesday night, the Orlando Magic returned to the comforts of reality, while the Atlanta Hawks experienced a jarring awakening. The first four games in this series weren’t an accurate representation of the performance of either team, but Game 5 shifted the matchup back toward balance, as Orlando thoroughly dominated both ends of the court…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Orlando can create shots or create vacation plans

    Apr 26, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    The reason the Atlanta Hawks are up 3-1 in this series and can close out the Orlando Magic tonight — and the difference between the 2009 Magic that went to the finals and the 2011 Magic about to be eliminated in the first round — was summed up nicely by Stan Van Gundy (via ESPN):…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta takes Game 4, Orlando is still searching

    Apr 24, 2011, 11:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    We’re well past a mere first round scare or claims of an “upset alert.” With an 88-85 win in Game 4, the Atlanta Hawks have pushed the fourth-seeded Orlando Magic to the very edge of their playoff lives, a considerable achievement considering the regular season profiles of both teams. The Magic were the league’s fourth…

  7. Video: Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford with the dagger (he called bank)

    Apr 23, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Jamal Crawford is back. Or the one from last season that was runaway Sixth Man of the Year is back. After a lackluster regular season Crawford has been lighting up the Orlando Magic to the tune of 23.7 points per game and shooting 58.8 percent from three. Which brings us to the dagger from Game…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Hawks take series lead in crazy game

    Apr 23, 2011, 12:44 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Orlando Magic are in some serious trouble against a team that gave up more points than it scored in the regular season. Game 3 could have gone either way, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Magic are a team built around Dwight Howard and versatile shooters, and the versatile shooters have failed…

  9. Jamal Crawford’s dogs lead to lawsuit with landlord

    Apr 7, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s been a rough year for Jamal Crawford. On the court, his game has taken a step back as he has tried to get used to the concept of ball movement in Larry Drew’s offense and not just going isolation all the time. (To be fair, it seems most of the Hawks have struggled with…

  10. The Atlanta Hawks are a bit of a mess

    Feb 9, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Where does Al Horford fit in the positional revolution?

    Nov 10, 2010, 7:34 PM EDT

    Al Horford

    When we debate and deliberate over the nature of conventional positions and their obvious anomalies (LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, etc.), Al Horford is rarely a name that drives the conversation. Yet, as Bret LaGree pointed out in a video at Hoopinion, Horford may somehow be the Hawks’ best interior and perimeter defender, their strongest post…

  16. Al Horford’s in for Atlanta, but who’s out?

    Nov 1, 2010, 6:07 PM EDT

    Al Horford

    Al Horford and the Hawks agreed on a contract extension that will keep Horford in Atlanta for five more seasons, but the Hawks’ long-term problems are far from solved. Losing Horford should never have been an option, but the money he’ll be owed over the next five seasons is thrown on top of the substantial…

  17. Larry Drew’s Hawks are off to an unfortunate start

    Oct 15, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    The Atlanta Hawks seem destined to repeat their successes and failures of a year ago, and that perception should persist until Larry Drew is able to show us something about the Hawks that Mike Woodson never could. Given how little we know about Drew as a head coach, I can’t give you a compelling reason…

  18. No, you don't get it, Jamal Crawford REALLY wants to stay in Atlanta

    Oct 5, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    It’s quite clear that Jamal Crawford much prefers an extension from Atlanta to the idea of becoming a free agent next summer. For a variety of reasons, the Hawks are (wisely) reluctant oblige. That hasn’t stopped Crawford from grandstanding to Hawks management at every opportunity, most recently with this enthusiastic play to the Associated Press:…

  19. Hawks working out extension with Al Horford. Jamal Crawford will be ticked.

    Oct 4, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    Between now and Nov. 1, Al Horford is going to become a rich man. Well, he’s already pretty rich by most standards — he is set to make $5.4 million this season — but he is about to get richer, get rich by NBA standards. This year is the last year of his rookie deal…

  20. Jamal Crawford is not going quietly without an extension

    Oct 3, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    If the Jamal Crawford extension saga were a pot of water over the stove, the first tiny bubbles have started rising to the surface. It’s not a full-on boil, but you might want to get the macaroni ready. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution spoke with Crawford, and he’s starting to mentally prepare himself to play elsewhere this…

  21. Hawks apparently in no rush to trade Jamal Crawford. Nor should they be.

    Sep 1, 2010, 12:27 PM EDT

    So we’ve heard that Jamal Crawford wants to be extended or traded. Or extended and traded. Whatever works. So long as he gets some money before the new CBA kicks in. Well, looks like the long-term money is going to Al Horford, but that doesn’t mean the Hawks are in any rush to trade Crawford,…

  22. Hawks, Jamal Crawford to sit down and talk. Isn't that nice?

    Aug 30, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford wants a new deal. As Ira Winderman explained, he sees what is coming and want to get his now before the clouds of uncertainty over future contracts get any darker. The Hawks and general manager Rick Sund will sit down with him and his agent Aaron Goodwin in the coming week, according to…

  23. Winderman: Jamal Crawford. 'Melo smart to try and get their money now

    Aug 30, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford is not a malcontent, just prescient. He knows what’s coming next. Or, more to the point, he knows what is not coming next. Even if Crawford wasn’t named winner of last season’s Sixth Man Award, a push for an extension would nonetheless make sense on many levels. Foremost is the expiration of the…

  24. Report: Jamal Crawford to demand extension or trade from Hawks

    Aug 28, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford has his best year in the NBA last season — scoring 18 poins a game he won the Sixth Man of the Year award, which was fueled by an improved shooting percentage as he was a little more selective with his shots (fewer long twos than with the Knicks). His game matured. Now…

  25. Jamal Crawford looking to re-up with the Hawks

    Jul 26, 2010, 3:50 PM EDT

    Now that Jamal Crawford has seen Joe Johnson swimming in an Olympic-sized swimming pool full of money courtesy of the Atlanta Hawks, he wouldn’t mind getting some for himself. According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com, Crawford is looking to secure a contract extension from the Hawks under the current CBA in order to avoid becoming…
