2-2 Road Trip with an Asterisk

By Jon Newberry

We’ve said it before this season: “A good win always trumps a bad loss.” It was even the title for one of Hometeam’s posts back in early December after the Hawks responded to a loss to the Knicks by beating the Mavericks on the road. Going into the road trip a 2-2 record would... »

Hawks Avoid Dealing with the Camby-Man

By Jon Newberry

Thanks to Tuesday’s trade between the Clippers and Blazers the Hawks will not have to worry about Marcus Camby dominating the boards like he did earlier this month in Atlanta (20 rebounds on Feb. 3). While the Hawks ulimately prevailed 103-97 that night, they trailed by nine with just over eight minutes remaining in... »

Maintaining Focus

By Jon Newberry

After a finishing a tough week 2-2 with quality wins on the road in Houston and at home against the Celtics the Hawks must refocus for this final stretch before the All-Star break. At one point this season you could have looked at this stretch of games as a easy patch in the schedule,... »

Houston Had a Problem

Don't Look Past Bobcats

By Jon Newberry

With a schedule next week that includes the Rockets, Spurs, Celtics and Magic it would be easy to overlook a Friday night game regardless of the opponent. Add in the fact that it is the Charlotte Bobcats, a franchise that has not finished better than fourth (out of five) in the Southeast Division and... »

Fanning Out The Flames of Losing

By feo_admin

TOUGH TIMES DON’T LAST, TOUGH PEOPLE DO

After a tough time in Miami and losing a season high four games in a row, this is the time for the team and fans to be tough.  Mired in the longest losing streak of the year, finger pointing and the blame game could easily begin for players and fans but won’t solve the... »

No Need to Panic

By Jon Newberry

It is just one game. No. It was just one quarter. Many will go on and on about the unimaginable offensive breakdown in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s loss to the Cavs. It was crazy, I will give you that, but trying to draw conclusions about the Hawks (or Cavs) as a whole based... »
