After one the Hawks led the Cavs by 12 points 31-19. The Hawks continued to pour it on in the second quarter and by the half this was almost over for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Hawks went into the locker room leading Cleveland 59-45.
The Hawks came out for the second half and saw a Cavs team that outscored them in the third period by 6 points it was almost as if the Hawks took a little break. That wouldn’t last ling as the Hawks would once again kick it into gear and out play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the fourth to secure the win over Cleveland 103-87.
Joe Johnson lead the Hawks with 28 points and Jeff Teague, put in 18. Atlanta got 27 points out of their bench players in this one. The Cavaliers leading scorer was Alonzo Gee with 20 and Kyrie Irving added 19, it just wasn’t enough to stop the Atlanta Ha...

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Joe Johnson scored 28 points and the short-handed Atlanta Hawks rolled to a 103-87 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday.
Atlanta had only 10 players available, but took an early lead that it never relinquished.
The Hawks built a 19-point lead midway through the third quarter and answered Cleveland's only run late in the period to win going away.
It was the night of the rookies for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tristan Thompson scored a career high 27 points and Kyrie Irving had 26 points (14 of them in the 4th quarter) as the Cavaliers came away with a nice win in New Jersey.
The Cavaliers got off to a hot start as Tristan Thompson was active in the post and was punishing the Brook Lopez-less Nets with dunk after dunk. The Cavs...
On Sunday I used my credentialed access to the Cavs / Hawks game in order to ask a couple players a few of the questions that I received from the Cleveland Cavaliers Twittersphere leading up to the game, and I appreciate everybody who tweeted questions at me for that. I ended up asking Tristan Thompson two of the questions that I received before the game, and Luke Walton a third...
Tristan Thompson, the starting center for your Cleveland Cavaliers.
Certainly, the original decision was essentially a product of circumstance colliding full speed with default. Once Anderson Varejao is cleared to play, however, should the Cavaliers continue to deploy the somewhat undersized 21-year old athlete?
Admittedly frustrated by the complete lack of opportunism in his...

Veteran head coach Mike Woodson has the New York Knicks back on track.If you’re an old-school kind of hoops guy, then you’ve got to love the way respected head coach Mike Woodson teaches the game. First and foremost, Woodson is a defense-first coach that learned much of what he knows from the legendary Larry Brown. Woodson also knows that in order to win in the NBA, that he...
I actually had no idea that Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague could get up like this.
The Cleveland Cavaliers waived forward Jason Kopono Saturday.Kopono was acquired two days ago from the Los Angeles Lakers as part of the deal that sent Ramon Sessions and Christian Eyenga to the Lakers for Luke Walton and a first-round draft pick.The two-time NBA Three-Point Shootout champion averaged two points per game in limited minutes for the Lakers this season.
ATLANTA (AP) -- Ray Allen hit two 3-pointers in Boston's 13-0 run in the fourth quarter and protected the lead with two free throws in the final seconds as the Boston Celtics held on to beat the Atlanta Hawks 79-76 on Monday night.
The Celtics led 73-58 at the end of the run. Joe Johnson, who had 25 points, had three late 3-pointers as the Hawks rallied. Johnson's 3 with...
Rex Chapman was white guys hope at winning the Slam Dunk contest. The way that he tried to win was by doing some fancy passing BEFORE the dunk. The dunk itself was usually as exciting as hearing a Bill Belichick interview. Below is a clip from a Slam Dunk Contest that Chapman did when he was in High School. It includes his trade mark flip over the back pass. Watch this video and...
Ray Allen isn't focused on the Celtics' modest seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings or the two-game losing streak they brought to Atlanta.
The 16-year veteran guard insists he likes this Boston team - especially when it plays as it did in the fourth quarter against the Hawks.
Allen hit two 3-pointers in Boston's 13-0 run in the fourth quarter and protected...
Tristan Thompson received a Cavs Zine Two last Tuesday, he most likely finished reading it this week, and then went for 27 points and 12 rebounds last night in New Jersey. There are no coincidences there, obviously. Nor is there any coincidence to the way that Tristan played just after being called out by Coach Byron Scott following the loss to the Hawks on Sunday either. Zaza Pachulia...
The NBA lockout occasionally leaves its imprint on an otherwise nondescript meeting between two middling Eastern Conference playoff teams, and tonight the lockout gods (or demons, rather) pushed dozens of shots wide right, or left, or short, or long.Even the game’s most exciting highlight, Jeff Teague’s tomahawk dunk on Ray Allen’s dome, resulted in a mistake. He screamed...

A former New Jersey high school standout, Irving will try to help his Cleveland Cavaliers end a three-game slide Monday night against Williams and the New Jersey Nets.
