1. The Hawks' playoff road misery continues.
After dropping Wednesdays Game 5 by a score of 106-83, the Hawks have now lost all three games in Indiana in this series by a combined total of 55 points. They also have lost eight straight on the road in the postseason.
They trail three games to two and face elimination on Friday at Philips Arena in Game 6.
This game was close for about a quarter and a half before some of the same problems of the past continued, along with a few new wrinkles thrown in.
For the second time in this series in Indiana, the Hawks received three technical fouls in a game. Thats the kind of loss of composure that the Hawks did not have in their two home victories.
Once again, they were badly outrebounded. This time it was 51-28. Showing that rebounding is not all about size, the games leading rebounder with 12 was Pacers guard Lance Stephenson, who stands 6-foot-5. Hawks coach Larry Drew has emphasized throughout the series the need to block out but, for wh...

It may be the playoffs but that doesn’t mean the rookie hazing stops. Prior to the Hawks elimination game (Game 6) in Atlanta Friday, the team loaded Mike Scott and John Jenkins’ cars with popcorn – which has been done repeatedly this season to rookies around the NBA.
Tweet Kyle Korver is about as close to a one-trick pony as you can get in the NBA. Korver is simply known as a sharpshooter that really doesn’t have a diversified skill-set. Among the things he is not known for is his defense. In fact, he’s known as one of the poorer defenders in the [...]
The Josh Smith show tied the
series between the Atlanta Hawks and the Indiana Pacers. J Smooth finished the night with 29 points,
11 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and one blocs to lead the Hawks to a 102 – 91 victory
on Monday night.
"You da one,
Smoove," teammate Dahntay Jones said as he walked by Smith's
locker. "You da one."
The Atlanta Hawks were feeling a lot better about themselves Tuesday. There were plenty of smiles and good-natured ribbing, especially during a 3-point contest between Jeff Teague and Josh Smith to close out practice.
Once Teague had finished off his teammate, it was time to head to the airport.
Back to reality.
While the Hawks have plenty of momentum - their playoff series with...

The first round series between the Indiana Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks has so far been dominated by the home team, which is why game 5 is so pivotal. Fortunately, after two stinkers in Atlanta, the Pacers turned it up a notch and got back to the type of play in March that made people consider them a serious threat to Miami.
The final score was 106-83, and the game was blown...
After a dismal playoff performance, the Atlanta Hawks decided it was best to spend some time away from each other.
The team arrived at Philips Arena for what was expected to be a regular practice and film session Thursday, a chance to prepare for a must-win game against the Indiana Pacers. Instead, coach Larry Drew spoke briefly with the players and sent them home.
ATLANTA Here are three things we learned from the Hawks' 81-73 loss to the Pacers in Game 6, clinching Atlanta's first-round exit from the Eastern Conference quarterfinals:
1. The Hawks picked the wrong night to post their lowest home tally of the season
Chalk it up to poor shooting or amped-up playoff intensity. No matter how you slice it, the Hawks simply didn't...
