May 23, 2015 Updates

Korver left Game 2 with a sprained right ankle in the third quarter and did not return. Al Horford, who already has a bad finger, limped off the court during Game 2 but returned. "We'll know more tomorrow about Kyle. Again, same with DeMarre," Budenholzer said. "We'll be hopeful that it's something relatively minor, and he'll be able to bounce back and play. Until tomorrow we won't know more. Al Horford, he had two or three different times where he got hit in the same spot. The feedback from him after the game, I think that he's going to be OK. It's just one of those things. Couple hits, couple bangs, we're hopeful that he'll be fine going into Game 3." USA Today Sports

The Hawks disposed of the Wizards 94-91 on Friday night in Game 6 at the Verizon Center to win the conference semifinals 4-2. The Hawks had not won two playoff rounds since 1958 — when in St. Louis they won the NBA title. The conference finals begin at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in Atlanta between the No. 1-seed Hawks and the No. 2-seed Cavaliers. “It’s a good feeling,” Al Horford said in a joyous Hawks locker room. “I don’t know if it’s set in quite yet, honestly. It’s a good feeling. I’m excited, and I’m looking forward to the next round.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Hawks center swooped in to snatch an offensive rebound and dropped in a shot from right under the basket with 1.9 seconds remaining, giving top-seeded Atlanta an 82-81 victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night and a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. "I wasn't supposed to be involved in the play at all," Horford said. "When I saw the ball go up, I just ran in there." USA Today Sports

When Paul Pierce hit a go-ahead three-pointer in the closing seconds of Game 5 (Vine), he reportedly looked at the Atlanta Hawks' bench and said "Series." The Hawks won the game on the next play when Al Horford had a put back at the buzzer (Vine). "I was just put in that position and I just made a play. I’m just excited that were a 3-2 now," said Horford. RealGM

Taken to the limit again, the Hawks finally pulled away for a 106-90 victory over the Wizards on Tuesday night that was much closer than the score indicated and evened the series at one game apiece. DeMarre Carroll scored 22 points, Kyle Korver bounced back from a miserable first half, and Al Horford made some huge plays when the Hawks needed them most. "We knew this was a game we had to win," Carroll said. "It was kind of a funky game." USA Today Sports

Hawks center Al Horford says he's definitely playing Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Brooklyn Nets. Horford dislocated his right pinky finger in the series opener, won by the Hawks 99-92. After a workout Monday, he said there was still some doubt about his playing status. But, after a full practice Tuesday, Horford said the finger feels much better and he's certain to be in the starting lineup. USA Today Sports
