Marc Stein: NBA commissioner Adam Silver has to pick the injury replacement for Dwyane Wade and I'm hearing that it will be Kyle Korver who gets the nod. Korver, I'm told, poised to join Jeff Teague, Al Horford and Paul Millsap on East All-Star squad a la 2006 when Pistons had four on the team Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

“It feels good,” Korver said of the win. “That is a really good team. That’s a really dangerous team. They can get hot. They can get cold. They can get really hot all in the same game. They are really hard to prepare for. We knew we had to play a good 48-minute game to beat them.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Korver will be at the All-Star game next month in February. He has agreed to take part in the 3-point shooting contest. However, there is a chance he could be in New York for more of the festivities. Several Eastern Conference coaches have said over the past two weeks that Korver will be among the Hawks they include on their All-Star reserve ballot. The notion is a surprise to Korver. “I stopped trying to prove everybody wrong a long time ago. It wasn’t good motivation for me. It takes you on an emotional roller coaster if you play that game. But I love basketball. I love team basketball. I love playing hard. I love all the aspects of the game, not just shooting but passing and defense. I feel like that’s what we do here. We do all of it and we do it as a team. I don’t feel like I’m a superstar by any means, but I feel like I’m a great piece. I feel like I’m in a really good situation.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Once again, Korver captured the attention of the fans and media with another dunk – the first time in his career he has done so in back-to-back games. He was looking to downplay the dunk after the game, saying he would “go glass” with a simple layup next time. Korver joked he hoped not to see the dunk on SportsCenter again, claiming it would be the two worst dunk highlights in history. The comment caused Millsap to burst into laughter two lockers down. Elton Brand, again, claimed he had no $100 bet with Korver on whether the guard would dunk before the center hit a 3-pointer. No payout. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Adding gravity to that chase: Korver is arguably on pace for the greatest shooting season in league history. "His preparation is off the charts. His professionalism, he's a perfectionist," said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, who also coached Kerr when he was an assistant in San Antonio. "In some ways, being around a shooter like Steve Kerr for several years and (watching) how hard he worked at his craft and how much attention there was to detail and all the little things that go into making shots -- I think those guys have some similarities. And then in some ways they're very different in how they get shots and make shots and everything. But I can guarantee their coaches were happy they were on their team." FoxSports.com
