Saturday, January 12th, 2013

A few thoughts on the Hawks’ much-needed 103-95 come-from-behind win over the Jazz Friday night at Philips Arena: – For nearly 3 quarters Friday night, the Hawks recent woes seemed certain to continue.

by Jaryd Wilson A few thoughts after Wednesday night’s 99-83 loss to the Cavaliers: – Great to see Devin Harris back on the floor tonight. The Hawks have had very few games with 14 available bodies this season, so hopefully this is a sign that the injury bug is finally moving on. – Larry... »

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

A few thoughts coming up on the Hawks’ 108-103 loss to the Timberwolves in Minnesota: – The Hawks showed a lot of grit rallying time and again against the Timberwolves in this game, but like in the loss in Detroit, they’ve got to find a way to avoid getting into big holes early. Still... »
