Sheed and Pierce are 2 of the players I dislike the most in the NBA...............though Ray Allen is an all time favorite.
I think KG is still out tonight. Hopefully that will help a little, although it'll be a "tainted win" in the eyes of some Hawk fans because they're not at full strength. But a win is a win.
I'ts pretty much obvious that C's will try to employ suffocating D and force half-court game, and play their own version of "Grunt-ball" that Frattello's Cavs played during the 80'...
Favored to win: Atlanta by 3 points
Garnett is not playing. Not sure about Pierce. I fully expect to win this game!
Josh should have a field day. I anticipate Al to be put on complete lockdown by Perk.
Wks should take this one. They match up great with the C's.
Ondo/Allen/sheed gta step up bt I'm takin hawks to play all out and get the win at home they need it
I'm excited about this game. We have to come out really stong, the Celtics even without Garnett is a tough team. Anyway, I hope they finish 1st in the EC. When you look at the Magic and Cavs, the Hawks matchup much better with the Celtics Imo.
The Tony Allen matchup is more important against Jamal not Joe as House has zero chance of stopping him off the bench. KG may be out but Big Baby is back this time and he punked us last year in KG's absence. Kind of weird waiting to see what we do in this game considering our matchup tomorrow and then the rematch on Monday.
On that over the back call, Perkins reminding me why he was voted one of the whiniest players in the NBA by his fellow players.
Sorry Kendrick, ESPN is wrong, Chuck Hayes is the best low post defender in the NBA
Maybe its the Hawks fan in me but it sure seems that ATlanta doesn't get any calls. Especially late in games. Am I wrong?
Shelden Williams is GARBAGE! So glad we let go of that dead weight. Excuse me, I meant "Mr. Candace Parker"
Rondo with 2 3s in this game. Now Eddie House feels useless
Good no call!
Horrible no call.
I was being sarcastic. I know it was a foul but my team benefitted so hey...
Can't exactly complain on that one.
Jamal Crawford is toying with Ray right now....
The Truth is taking this **** over.
All of the isolations that lead to stagnation in our offense are a result of coaching, Mike Woodson needs to go!
Pierce can't make a foul shot.
For every shot Pierce made, Hawks come right back.
Lets start the hack-a-rondo!
If Hawks start that, the Celtics should start hack-a-smith
Can somebody please call a travel on Rondo for that move? He has done it about 6 times that I have seen and I'm not even really paying attention, I saw them call it once. Dude does a little shimmy after his "Stop" and switches pivots multiple times despite not going anywhere.
Pierce ain't clutch anymore right Boston bandwaggoners?
Pierce. 3 missed fts, a missed lay up, and a turn over! That's 7 points.
As long as Orlando keeps playing like **** and we stay close enough to Cleveland, we're fine.
Nice win for the Hawks, they needed a big win like this one to bounce back from what the Cavs did to them.
But all the haters are going to say it wasn't legit 'cause no KG.
And should be no VC tomorrow night,
So hopefully we can pick up another big W.
I don't what was worse tonight: the refs trying everything possible to give Boston the win or how insanely biased Jon Barry was against Atlanta. I just wanted to grab a mic and ask him was it true he was both waived and traded by Atlanta. He is so bitter about the Hawks someone on ESPN should call him out on it.
If Kg can't stay healthy that is not our problem... It is theirs. We beat them twice this year, and I seriously don't see how Boston can beat us if we come to play. We are on a different level athletically.
