BEST OF MAXIM
The Hawks are riding a five-game win streak over the Blazers, who last won in Atlanta on Jan. 21, 2008.
Raymond Felton admits that he has struggled so far this season, mostly with his shot and decision-making, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want his money from the Blazers. Because he very much does. From Hoopsworld: “At the end of this season the Blazers will once again have to make a major decision regarding their backcourt, as Felton is in the last year of his current deal...
From Hoopsworld’s Lang Greene: At the end of this season the Blazers will once again have to make a major decision regarding their backcourt, as Felton is in the last year of his current deal and is set to become a free agent. Felton readily lets it be known if the decision were up to…
Raymond Felton and Jamal Crawford have been struggling with their shooting accuracy and turnovers, making the Portland backcourt a liability.

Four out of five writers claim the Blazers are contenders on ESPN.com’s 5-on-5 roundtable, while the Hawks cannot claim a single contender title. Unfortunately for the City of Roses, the writers’ opinions did not affect the outcome of last night’s game.
In a horrendous shooting night, the Blazers came up one three pointer away from going into overtime in Atlanta against the...
The notion seems as simple as hitting the open man, running with the ball as far away from the other team as you can, or touching the guy on the other team with the ball as he tries to run toward the your base.
