Crawford Cuts up the Blazers

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Yes, yes, yes!  If Jamal Crawford comes to play like that every night, watch out NBA!  Crawford and Joe Johnson were smoking hot in the fourth quarter and Crawford’s offense coupled with Joe’s, helped to close out the Blazers on their home court.

I don’t know what was more important, his 27 points or his 7 assists- on a night where the Hawks scored 15 points in the opening session.

That was a big win.  Winning on the road, against the team with the fourth best home record last year, on a night with a bad start. It was great effort on defense and an attacking mentality by Crawford that got the win.

Crawford’s energy seemed to spark the offense and the defense as everything was turned up a notch.  His aggressive style was the difference in the game.  I can’t wait to see what he does tonight in Sacramento.

    Gotta give credit where it’s due as well…”itsslomotionbaby” has a point about the maturation of Smoove and Horford. Blame that on coaching (Woody)….

    Is it me or does it seem like Flip is a distant memory?

    On another note, how lucky are the Browns fans that they actually had a SITDOWN with their team’s ownership?? I’m admittedly jealous. Clearly that would NEVER happen here with the Hawks.

    Eddie Johnson was my favorite hawk back in the day – now Jamaal Crawford is my favorite hawk. He’s a special player. I waited along time for the hawks to get a fearless competitor who will impose his will on you.

    You have to respect a player like Jamaal because he can hurt you in so many different ways. He can attact the basket better than anyone because he’s so versatile and skillful.

    If everyone on team plays their role, I believe they can win a championship this season. This is what they would have to do to win it all:

    Move Jamaal to point guard and let him and Joe Johnson be the offense while Horford, Josh Smith and ZaZa grab rebounds on both ends of the court and control the paint. Move Horford to power forward and ZaZa to center.

    PG-Jamaal Crawford…….Mike Bibby/J.Teague
    SG-Joe Johnson………..Mo Evans
    SF-Josh Smith…………Marvin Williams
    PF-Al Horford…………Joe Smith
    C-ZaZa……………….Jason Collins or R.Morris

    With this line up we can compete with Orlando, Boston, Cleveland, Lakers and San Antonio.

    Yea Tony I like the line up you posted. I am wondering when the coach will Bench Williams and slide in Crawford. Its crazy to have this guy not as a starter.

    Man, i’m loving ALL of your post, you’re picking my brain :-)!!!! We need to sit down w/ Woody and express our thoughts and hopefully he will listen! The lineup that tony posted was perfect for the Hawks.

    PG-Jamaal Crawford…….Mike Bibby/J.Teague
    SG-Joe Johnson………..Mo Evans
    SF-Josh Smith…………Marvin Williams
    PF-Al Horford…………Joe Smith
    C-ZaZa……………….Jason Collins or R.Morris

    That’s PERFECT, and don’t forget we still have Othello Hunter that can come in at the 3 or 4 spot as well!! GO HAWKS!!! and PLAY DEFENSE FOR 4 QUARTERS!!!!!!!!

    I hope Joe Johnson don’t loose his team to Dewayne Wade. The Stars will come to Atlanta with that deep team and they are locked for years. The Hawks offered him a fair cintract.
