  1. 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…

  2. 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…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    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…

  6. How Al Horford learned to stop worrying and love Danny Ferry

    Sep 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Al Horford admits it. Like a lot of other Hawks fans this summer he wondered what GM Danny Ferry was thinking. Then it all came together. Now Al Horford looks around at the guys working out before training camp starts with the Hawks next week and he thinks he sees the plan. At least he…

  7. Atlanta Hawks Guard Lou Williams Not Yet Cleared for Training Camp

    As Derrick Rose taught us last season, recoveries from ACL surgery can vary wildly. Some guys can recover in as quickly as six or seven months, while others can take more than a year before they even feel “right” again. Every body is different, and expecting athletes to rehabilitate at the exact same level and…

  8. Lou Williams’ recovery may decide if Hawks fill final roster spot

    Sep 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette, Lou Williams, John Salmons

    The Atlanta Hawks roster is pretty much set, they have 14 guys under guaranteed contracts. They could add a 15th player, but don’t expect them to. The reason is Lou Williams and his recovery from knee surgery, speculates Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. I expect the Hawks to keep just 14 on the…

    The Hawks have been re-tooling a team that earned the No. 6 seed last season and tied the Pacers heading into Game 5 of their first-round series. Paul Millsap replaces Josh Smith. Elton Brand replaces Ivan Johnson. Dennis Schroeder replaces Devin Harris. Mike Budenholzer replaces Larry Drew. Lou Williams is getting healthy. Free agents Jeff…

    Hawks Clippers Basketball

    It is dangerous to read too much into an NBA Summer League performance — remember a year ago the co-MVPs were Damian Lillard and Josh Selby. They went on to have radically different NBA seasons. But the one guy in Las Vegas who leapt out to me as a potential steal of a pick was…

  11. Report: Kyle Korver agrees to four-year deal to stay with Hawks

    Jul 3, 2013, 9:17 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    When word came out that Kyle Korver was no longer a lock to join the Nets, it immediately became all about the money for one of the league’s most consistent shooters from three-point distance, and with good reason. Korver, 32, is likely at the point in his career where he’s in position to receive his…

    Feb 16, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    The Milwaukee Bucks have the potential to be one of the biggest players at the trade deadline. They have one of the league’s best shooters on an affordable deal in Mike Dunleavy. They have a serviceable backup big man on an expiring deal in Samuel Dalembert. They have point guard Brandon Jennings, who will be…

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WIZARDS

    No change in the top four teams, but really it feels like right now there is a top three teams with the Heat capable of being that good but not really choosing to all the time. 1. Clippers (32-9, last week ranked No. 2). Chris Paul sits out three games, Eric Bledsoe steps in and…

  16. Hawks’ Lou Williams tears ACL, done for season

    Jan 19, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    Lou Williams

    The Atlanta Hawks have lost their spark plug off the bench and key source of perimeter points for the rest of the season. Lou Williams has torn the ACL in his right knee, he will need surgery and will miss the rest of this season (and likely the start of next one), reports the Atlanta…

    Midway through the second quarter of the game between the Hawks and the Nets on Friday, Lou Williams was forced to leave the game with a non-contact injury to his right knee. As Williams planted on the fast break, the knee seemed to buckle, and he immediately limped off the floor after feeling the injury…

  18. Larry Drew frustrated with Hawks team appearing in free-fall

    Jan 15, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Larry Drew

    The Atlanta Hawks have just been plain ugly the past few weeks. They are 3-7 in their last 10. In those 10 games the Hawks defense has been the biggest issue — they are giving up six points per 100 possessions more than their season average. But of late their offense has joined the “we’re…

    Steve Nash, Jrue Holiday

    Is Jrue Holiday an All-Star player? Holiday wants to be and after he dropped 26 points and 10 assists on the Lakers Tuesday night Steve Nash told the Los Angeles Times he thinks Holiday should be. (Insert your own joke about playing like an All-Star against Steve Nash’s defense here.) “Obviously they’re a different team…

    We enter 2013 off a week where the two best teams in the East — Miami and New York — looked sloppy while the teams at the top of the Western Conference looked strong and took over the top spots in the weekly rankings. 1. Clippers (25-6, Last week ranked No. 1). The win streak…

    It’s not the end of the world in a classic way, or even in a “Michael Stipe feels fine” kind of way, but the Clippers being on top of the PBT power rankings are as close to the end of the world as we are getting this week. 1. Clippers (21-6, LW 2). Winners of…

    Gerald Henderson

    Gerald Henderson is having the worst week ever. It started about seven days ago, when the Bobcats opted not to extend his contract, despite the fact that he led them in scoring during the 2011-12 season. Then, Henderson had to watch draft classmate DeMar DeRozan get 40 million dollars over four years, despite the fact…
