Atlanta Hawks’ guard Jeff Teague has struggled mightily lately, which isn’t news to anyone watching the Hawks’ series against the Washington Wizards, but last night he came up huge in a must-win game against the Wiz last night. Here are the highlights:

From Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN.com: “ATLANTA — Forward Paul Millsap will miss the Hawks’ next two games following a right shoulder injury in Saturday night’s 131-99 victory over the Brooklyn Nets at Philips Arena. Paul Millsap was knocked to the floor in a collision with Brooklyn’s Earl Clark with 1:52 left in the first half. […]
From Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “Two front-runners for ownership of the Hawks are emerging as the lengthy process to sell the franchise and Philips Arena continues into its seventh month. There is a deadline of April 10 for final bids. However, that date could be moved, as one or more bids are still […]
Paul Millsap may have had the “dunk of the night” but Atlanta Hawks’ guard Kyle Korver had the moment of the night in which the sharpshooting wing scored 11 points in just over a minute of in-game action. No, seriously. “Let’s make it four in a row. Let’s get it,” Dominique Wilkins said.
The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 101-88 last night in Philips Arena. Midway through the third quarter, however, Hawks’ forward Paul Millsap delivered an emphatic slam on Giannis “The Greek Freak” Antetokounmpo. It was just not the Bucks night at The Highlight Factory.
The Atlanta Hawks signed former Virginia Tech Hokie Jarell Eddie to a 10-day contract on Mar. 4 and this clip from the NBA D-League 3-point contest looks like it might be a strong reason as to why. A long-armed, big wing who can shoot threes? The Atlanta Hawks should be able to work with that. […]
Jared Johnson of Bleacher Report: “When you’re an elite team like the 48-12 Atlanta Hawks, it’s important to have players who understand what their skills are. For example, Kyle Korver shouldn’t call an isolation play for himself with the score tied and 20 seconds left to in the game. Likewise, Pero Antic shouldn’t demand the […]
In what many expected to be an Eastern Conference Finals preview coming into Friday night’s contest between the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers, many probably left feeling the same way after the Hawks pulled away late in the fourth quarter thanks to some nifty Mike Scott mid-range shots and Jeff Teague come-from-behind blocks as the […]
Nothing is easy when facing the 2014-15 Milwaukee Bucks, but the Atlanta Hawks will leave Milwaukee for the sixth-consecutive time as victors after being the Bucks 97-86 Sunday afternoon that featured a third quarter that set basketball back at least 35 years. How it Happened: The Bucks were without newly-acquired point guard Michael Carter-Williams so […]
Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN.com: “ATLANTA — Civil rights leader and former Atlanta mayor Andrew Young on Tuesday told a local television station that Danny Ferry should be allowed to rejoin the Hawks organization in his capacity as general manager. Asked by WSB TV’s sports director Zach Klein whether Ferry should lose his job, Young responded, […]
Patrick Laney of Peachtree Hoops: “As the Atlanta Hawks approach Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, it is difficult to identify what a team with a 6.5 game lead over the number 2 seed in the East should do to improve. Atlanta has to be careful in making any move that may disrupt the team chemistry featured […]
Howard Beck of Bleacher Report: “NEW YORK — LeBron James was taking questions Friday. If you could get to him. The Cavaliers star was sealed off behind a frantic mob of reporters and cameras, a tangle of outstretched arms, bumping elbows, iPods on selfie sticks, dangling microphones and stationary floodlights. The pack was 120 strong […]
Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution: “NEW YORK — The sale of the Hawks continues on a “deliberate, methodical process,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday night. Silver added that there are several prospective buyers. “That has moved along the course that we expected,” Silver said during a news conference at the All-Star game. […]
Ian Levy of Five Thirty Eight: “In the NBA, the apex of individual shooting is a 50-40-90 season — shooting 50 percent from the field, 40 percent on 3-pointers and 90 percent on free throws. Not many people can sustain that kind of accuracy from inside and out. Since the three-point line was adopted for […]
