ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats each hit 12 3-point shots Wednesday, but a missed 3-point attempt decided the game. Byron Mullens' last-second shot hit the back iron, and the Hawks hung on for a 94-91 win. "That was a really tough win for us," Hawks coach Larry Drew said. "I thought they were getting after us more than we were getting after them. They were coming up with loose balls. They were keeping balls alive. They were actually bringing the game to us, and that's totally unacceptable." Ben Gordon set a Bobcats franchise record for points in a quarter, scoring 20 in the fourth, and he tied the franchise record with seven 3-pointers in the game. He wound up with 26 points in the losing effort. Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap was determined not to let the Hawks score 50 points in the paint the way they did when they won 101-91 in Charlotte on Friday. In Wednesday's rematch, the Hawks had to settle for a mere 32 points in the pai...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
ATLANTA Hawks point guard Jeff Teague may slither elusively to the basket, but coach Larry Drew used an unusual metaphor to describe his player nonetheless.
Hes the head of the snake for us, Drew said. When hes going well, chances are, we are, too.
The Hawks Al Horford might have been the NBAs Player of the Week, but Teague arguably is playing the best basketball of his career....
I don’t know. I’ll be the first to tell you, I don’t know. Whether the Bobcats are good, bad, lucky, suckering teams, winning close ones early in the year only to lose them later, a fluke or on to something real and sustainable. I don’t know. All those adjectives or suspicions have definite truths to [...]
ATLANTA -- After an atrocious 1-for-10 night at the free throw line last week, Al Horford decided to spend extra time working on his foul shots.
"That's one of the things I always work on, and I got away from it a little bit," he said. "I think it showed when I went in that little slump."
His recent effort seems to have paid off.
Horford scored 17 points...
It's been awhile since we posted a high-flying dunk from Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith but this effort against the Charlotte Bobcats is a worthy effort.
Watch as Hawks guard Jeff Teague on the fast break finds J-Smooth for the one-handed jam in the third quarter of play:
ATLANTA -- Al Horford scored 17 points and hit two clinching free throws to help the Atlanta Hawks win their sixth straight game with a 94-91 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.
Josh Smith and Lou Williams also had 17 points apiece for the Hawks.
Ben Gordon finished with 26 points and Ramon Sessions had 18 to lead Charlotte, which has lost two straight and three...
“We kind of know that OKC is a test for us, we failed it miserably,” coach Dunlap said after the Bobcats were beaten by a number so huge that it needed to be written in scientific notation. He’s right about Charlotte failing miserably. This was their first test against a traditional powerhouse, and it went [...]
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- Gerald Henderson chuckled when asked, but only because of the absurd reality of the question.
Yes, he said, before pausing for a second. Its like that. Its a different atmosphere. But theres no doubt we have some of that spirit.
The spirit Henderson acknowledged is one he knew all too well playing three seasons at Duke. But it isnt because of regular home experiences...
Tracy McGrady scored 32 points on 9-for-20 shooting from the floor and 11-for-14 from the free throw line.
I’m the man in the middle T…
So, how does a team come back from a 45-point beat down earlier in the week? Let me remind, again, that the team dishing out that beat down was an NBA Finals team. Unlike last season’s Bobcats, they come back to lose by only 3 points in the Hawks house. The final score was 94-91. It was a great game to see, even though I was stuck on the phone for most of the second half...
Here’s NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski “hooping it up” during halftime at a Charlotte Bobcats game, and I’d make more jokes about how he’s terrible, but he’s not much worse than the Charlotte Bobcats.

ATLANTA -- Josh Smith scored 17 points -- 13 of them in the third quarter -- Al Horford scored 17 and the pair pulled down 12 and 11 rebounds, respectively, as the Atlanta Hawks held off the Charlotte Bobcats 94-91 on Wednesday night at Phillips Arena. Ben Gordon exploded with five 3-point shots in the fourth quarter, including one with 29 seconds left in the game. But Ramon Sessions...
Come on back down Bobcats fans. We got some stuff to talk about.
Hello Bobcats fans. Before everyone blows last night’s loss completely out of proportion, I feel that I need to share a few things with everyone. This is done to keep everyone, including myself, calm. We have to be realistic about this team. They are better than last year. Make no mistake about it...
There’s a silent beast stalking the Eastern Conference, moving up the rankings and earning wins quietly. They aren’t super flashy, super athletic or have a choc-full of All-Stars, and they definitely don’t look like much on paper, but mark my words, the Atlanta Hawks should not be taken lightly despite their off-season roster shake-up.
In fact, a roster shake-up might’ve...
While the Charlotte Bobcats have shown significant improvement this season, there weren't many positives to take away from their last game.
Things aren't about to get much easier with another matchup against the surging Atlanta Hawks up next.
The Bobcats conclude a three-game trek looking to bounce back from their worst loss in franchise history Wednesday night against...
