Al Horford's sore hamstring must be better. The Atlanta Hawks big man played a team-high 51 minutes in a win Friday over the Boston Celtics. The former Florida Gator scored 24 points (7-15 FG, 10-11 FT), grabbed 13 rebounds, dished three assists and snagged two steals. Play him now. Kyle Korver made eight shots -- all of them 3-pointers -- for a team-high 27 points to go with six rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks.  He's owned in 54 percent of leagues, and that will likely go up after tonight. Ivan Johnson stuck in the starting lineup but played just 18 minutes and grabbed only one rebound (11 points and an assist). Zaza Pachulia returned from a sore Achilles and played 11 minutes (two points, three rebounds and an assist). Devin Harris was also back and came off the bench for 14 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 38 minutes. Harris had been playing well before the injury and is worth a look.

Rondo’s triple-double was not enough Thursday to prevent the...

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 1/25

Well, that wasn't fun.  It's becoming clear that the bench is finally coming around but now the starters are slumping.  The second unit gave us that big lead in the second quarter and then it went away when the starters came back in.  But there's progress.  We  at least got one great half of basketball.    One thing that always strikes me is all the complaints...
