Right now, the Atlanta Hawks practice in a no-frills gym inside Phillips Arena, not far from the arena’s main court. As practice facilities go, it’s outdated. No high-tech video room, hydrotherapy pools or high-end kitchen. No massage room or players’ lounge with pop-a-shot and HDTVs. Just one full-sized court. Some big-time college basketball programs have nicer practice facilities and more amenities. That’s about to change.

Brett Dawson: Billy Donovan says “crazy as this may sound,” he was excited by the way OKC played offensively. Liked the shots they got tonight. Said the third quarter was “not indicative of who we have been” defensively.
KC Johnson: Portis: “I mean, I don’t want to keep talking about me and Niko. We’re just playing our games, playing off each other and just trying to play within Fred’s offense. Our second unit has been clicking real well. It’s been fun.”
