Tracy McGrady went to the ground and immediately reached for his right ankle after landing on a Celtics players foot on a jump shot late in the second quarter. McGrady was quickly helped the locker room, leaving the Hawks even more shorthanded than they were already. Early in the regular season the Hawks lost their starting center, Al Horford. Later, they lost their backup center in Zaza Pachulia. In the second game of this series, one of their starting forwards, Josh Smith, went down with a left knee injury. Naturally, Atlanta turned to their bench for help and was getting...

Current Atlanta Hawk Jerry Stackhouse picks the Heat to ‘win it all’

In case you may have forgotten, Jerry Stackhouse is still an active member of the NBA. He’s spent this season cloaked in obscurity on the Atlanta Hawks’ bench. Stack isn’t an integral member of the Hawks. Hell, he’s hardly gotten playing time this year. But he’s still a member of the Hawks, no less. You’d think he’d keep that in mind when he made playoff predictions...

Jerry Stackhouse picks the Heat to win NBA Title

Oh by the way…Jerry Stackhouse is still playing in the NBA for the Atlanta Hawks, who are currently tied at a game a piece with the Boston Celtics in the 1st round of the NBA playoffs.  I have to believe that his teammates must be loving that he picked the Heat to win it all. [...]

Expect a lot of Jason Collins, Ivan Johnson and Marvin Williams tonight for the Hawks. Or in other words, Atlanta’s loss of Smith is really going to hurt.

Your Morning Dump... The Hawks are swarming KG

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “We’ve got to establish him more,’’ Rivers said of Garnett. “We’ve got to get bodies off him. They’re putting bodies on him, knocking him around, and we’ve got to do a better job as a staff...

Celtics survive overtime thriller with 90-84 victory over the Atlanta Hawks

Boston squeezed out a win in overtime over the Atlanta Hawks,  90-84.  This series has been one where the team that should have won has lost or nearly lost, with Boston taking game two without Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen while barely winning at full strength and Atlanta missing Joe Johnson. This whole series has been neck and neck.  Game three was no different as both teams...

An odd Game 3 included Rajon Rondo’s strange triple-double

Jason Collins made an instant offensive impact, Erick Dampier and Tracy McGrady played key roles, Rajon Rondo slipped and fell on a fast break with nobody in his path, Willie Green took Atlanta’s most critical shot, and I sat there watching everything unfold, wary of Boston’s raggedy play yet reveling in the oddities of it all.If Penny Hardaway had grabbed a knee brace, checked...

This portly fellow’s epic trampoline dunk fail is too good to be true (animated GIF)

  I cannot say when this brilliant piece of animated GIF goodness occurred, where (although I believe that’s the Atlanta Hawks logo on the mat) or if this rather sizable chap was actually attempting to dunk the ball or it was setup played for laughs, but either way, I laughed. And then I laughed again. [...]

Celtics 90, Hawks 84: All wins counts the same, thankfully

I’m still not sure exactly how an 11-point lead dissolved into a tie game in less than three milliseconds, but only a cruel god would have subjected us to five extra minutes of that sludge. Thankfully, the Celtics prevailed in overtime against an Atlanta Hawks team that brought a lot of effort if not a lot of talented players healthy enough to compete.For all the interesting...

POTD 5/4/12: Ramon Sessions on Kenneth Faried

Never before, not in the playoffs nor the regular season, had Ramon Sessions won Poster of the Day.  One would think that Kenneth Faried, a 6’8″ man beast also known as “The Manimal,” may not be the guy you’d want to seek as your first head… but hey, it worked out alright for Ramon.  Watch as he soars in with the right hand, probably to Faried’s surprise, and drops...
