Daily Hawks News (2.15.15)

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. “There are several very interested parties who are looking at the team. It is on schedule.” Silver gave no timetable to the completion of the sale. It is believed the process could take until April.”

Brad Rowland of Peachtree Hoops: “The Atlanta Hawks do not often take center stage during the NBA All-Star Game. That is set to change on Sunday, as the Hawks lead the way with five representatives in the 2015 edition of the league’s midseason spectacle. The Hawks, unfortunately, do not have a representative in the starting lineup for the Eastern Conference, but head coach Mike Budenholzer has the reins for the entire evening as the man-in-charge. LeBron James, John Wall, Carmelo Anthony, Pau Gasol and Kyle Lowry will have the first action for the East, but in this space, we will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of Atlanta’s own quartet of stars.”

Buddy Grizzard of Hawks Hoop: “Evan Turner took an inbounds pass, crossed over DeMarre Carroll and hit a beautiful runner in the lane with two tenths of a second remaining to give the Boston Celtics an 89-88 win over the visiting Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks picked the wrong opponent to take a game off against. You may recall after the Hawks beat the Celtics 109-105 Dec. 2, Turner had some choice words about Kyle Korver’s defense. This game had an eerie resemblance to the Dec. 13 loss in Orlando in which the Hawks let off the gas. There was plenty of blame to go around as the Hawks let a 14-point fourth quarter lead slip away. The Hawks limp into the All-Star break losers of three of their last six after a record-breaking 19-game win streak.”
