Scouting Report: Portland Trail Blazers

By Jaryd Wilson

The Hawks are back at it on Wednesday, facing the Portland Trail Blazers for the first time this season. Portland, like Atlanta’s opponent on Sunday, is playing terrific basketball this season.  Remarkably, four of their five starters have started all 60 games, and LaMarcus Aldridge has missed just five after suffering a minor groin... »

Scouting Report: Boston Celtics

By Jaryd Wilson

The Celtics return home for the first game at TD Garden since before the All-Star break.  They began post-break play with a four-game west coast road trip – a trip that saw them go 0-4.  Back home for the first time, I expect they’ll play with some newfound energy. Boston looks a little different... »

Scouting Report: Detroit Pistons

By Jaryd Wilson

The Hawks limp into Detroit on the heels of seven straight losses, and things don’t get any easier as they’ll be matched up against one of the biggest teams in the NBA without the services of three of their centers. Al Horford, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon all remain out.  Horford is obviously done... »

Game Preview: Hawks vs. Wizards

By Robby Kalland

The Hawks (25-27) will host the Wizards (25-28) with both teams on the second game of a back-to-back and both teams losing their first game after the All-Star break. Both teams will be looking to get on track, as the two have lost 11 of their last 12 combined games — the lone win... »

By Robby Kalland

The short-handed Hawks (25-27) lost their sixth straight game as the Pacers (41-12) dominated the first and third quarters on their way to a 108-98 victory. The Pacers jumped out to a 31-9 lead in the first quarter thanks to a 13-of-14 shooting start, and they took advantage of seven early Hawks turnovers to... »

Scouting Report: Indiana Pacers

By Jaryd Wilson

The timing of the All-Star break couldn’t have been better for the Hawks, who lost their last five games of the first half and needed the long weekend to rest, regroup and get healthy. Unfortunately, the timing and luck aren’t always shining at the same time.  Atlanta opens the second half of the season... »

Hawks Close First Half With Loss In Toronto

By Robby Kalland

The Hawks (25-26) dropped their fifth game in a row heading into the All-Star break as the Raptors (28-24) were too much in the second half, rolling to a 104-83 victory.  DeMar DeRozan  led all scorers with 31 points and, after a 1-of-6 start, finished on a 10-for-13 shooting run. Without DeMarre Carroll (hamstring), the... »

Hawks v. Grizzlies Preview

By Robby Kalland

The Memphis Grizzlies (26-22) come to Philips Arena looking to sweep the season series with the Atlanta Hawks (25-23). The Grizzlies are on a tear of late, thanks in large part to Marc Gasol returning from injury, winning 11 of their last 14 games, including their first matchup with the Hawks, 108-101 (without Gasol)... »

Hawks Offense Stays Hot In Win Over Wolves

By Robby Kalland

The Hawks (25-21) continued their great offensive play of late to beat the Timberwolves (23-24) 120-113. Kevin Love played through an ankle sprain and had an incredible night with 43 points and 19 rebounds, but he didn’t get enough help to counter the Hawks’ balanced attack led by Kyle Korver‘s 24 points and Paul Millsap‘s 20 points and... »
