Thanks to a great regular season, the Hawks earned the top-seed and home-court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs; but theloss negates that advantage, making Game 2 a virtual must-win.

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:
On the last Sunday of April, the Washington Wizards finished their first-round series with the Toronto Raptors in dominating fashion, sweeping the NBA’s lone Canadian franchise with ease. Their performance, boasting an emerging superstar in John Wall and a future Hall-of-Famer in Paul Pierce, forced the critics to re-evaluate their predictions on just how far […]
The Atlanta Hawks will host the Brooklyn Nets for Game 5 of their first-round series matchup of the 2015 NBA postseason tonight, and if you haven’t noticed, this series has just gotten very interesting.

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.

So the Hawks continued to do […]
The Atlanta Hawks are owners of the best record in the NBA with 23 games to go. They hold a one game lead over the Golden State Warriors, who have been alternating owning the best record throughout the entire season. The Hawks are seven and three in their past 10 games and are riding a […]
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. […]
