ATLANTA -- Hawks coach Larry Drew said losing streaks inspire all kinds of maladies -- sleepless nights, edginess, flaring tempers.
Returning home on Wednesday for their second game in two days against a similar kind of big, muscular opponent, the Hawks were at risk of losing their third straight and falling victim to all of that.
Making matters worse, they were even more depleted than the night before up front. In addition, to missing Zaza Pachulia (Achilles' tendon) again, the Hawks chose to rest DeShawn Stevenson, whom they do not play in back-to-back games.
Showing what Drew deemed urgency, the Hawks downed Memphis 103-92 at Philips Arena in a game that was not as close as the final score reflected, as the Hawks led by as much as 23 late in the third quarter and by 18 entering the final period against a Grizzlies team that entered with a better record from the more rugged Western Conference.

Centuries ago, Sir Isaac Newton told us that objects in motion tend to stay in motion. For this reason, no man without a death wish really has any desire to position himself in the path of a speeding Ivan Johnson. Even other NBA players, who are quite large and competitive themselves, are hesitant to get in his way. Recently, as if he’s suddenly realized just how frightening...

Tweet For those of you who haven’t been following the Atlanta Hawks, reserve forward Ivan Johnson has been on a bit of a dunking bonanza recently. This past Saturday against the Chicago Bulls Johnson went coast-to-coast to beat the first quarter buzzer and finished emphatically over Taj Gibson. Wednesday Johnson was at it again, [...]
Al Horford wants the NBA to recall his flagrant foul on D.J. Augustin and is calling out the Pacers guard for an elbow to his family jewels. On a drive to the basket, Augustin seems to inadvertendly jab Horford in the groin area (Video) after being fouled which the Hawks’ center later called ‘dirty’ and intentional.
According to Chris Vivlamore, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution...
The frontline duo of Josh Smith and Al Horford continues to be one of the biggest reasons for the Atlanta Hawks' success - or at times, lack thereof - especially of late.
Both players will look to take advantage of an opponent that has struggled with interior defense recently Friday night against the visiting New Orleans Hornets.
New Orleans will try to end a four-game road...
