Postgame Thoughts: Another One Down to the Wire vs. Celtics

A few thoughts after tonight’s 107-102 OT loss to the Celtics: - There is something about these Hawks-Celtics games.

Postgame Thoughts: Hawks Happy to be Home

A few thoughts after tonight’s 107-96 win over the 76ers: - Boy did the Hawks need to get home.  After three straight tough road losses, Atlanta bounced back in the comforts of Philips Arena nicely.  They had a few advantages – the Sixers coming off a back-to-back and having injuries to Nick Young and... »

Postgame Thoughts: Turnovers, Cold Shooting Doom Hawks in Streak-Buster

A few thoughts after tonight’s 92-87 loss to the Suns: - It’s a strange game isn’t it?  With tonight’s loss, the Hawks now have as many losses to the bottom four teams in the West as they do to the top five in that conference.  If anyone isn’t scratching their heads, please let me... »
