You know it's a good night for the Hawks when point guard Jeff Teague (27 points, 11 assists) encounters little resistance in his dribble-drive moves to the paint.
On the flip side, it's hard for the Sixers (23-37) to sell hope to a ravenous fan base when Damien Wilkins an NBA survivor at 33, but no longer in his prime must shoulder the scoring load on the tail end of back-to-back games.
As such, the Hawks (54 percent shooting, 11 of 24 three-pointers made) were undaunted by the 8-0 deficit after five minutes. Over the next 14 minutes, they would steamroll the 76ers by a 48-24 count.
"(Philadelphia) is a team that we've had problems with in the past. We had lost to them six straight times," said Hawks head coach Larry Drew in the postgame. "I wanted o...

So I've probably written this article at least three or four different times throughout the course of the last six days. Other than the fact that my schedule has been ridiculously full and included stints in NYC and Brooklyn, I really tried to do my best to make this article stand out in a way Etan Thomas would be proud of and at the same time, slightly embarrassed about.
The Atlanta Hawks are glad to be home. They might be short-handed, however, in their return to Philips Arena.
Atlanta will try to prevent a season high-tying fourth straight defeat - and seventh in a row in this series - on Wednesday night when the slumping Philadelphia 76ers look to avoid their longest road skid in 25 seasons.
After averaging 106.3 points in wins over Milwaukee...
There is no love lost between the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics. Ever since the teams clashed through seven hard-fought games in the first round of the 2008 Playoffs, it seems, both teams have had each others' number.
