A basket by Paul Millsap and the two by Carroll nearly clinched the game. Paul Pierce appeared to make a game-tying 3-point at the buzzer. However, after a review, video showed that he did not get the shot off in time. “When they ran the play, I saw John Wall get the ball,” Carroll said. “I was like, ‘Man, should I foul him or should I just contest the 3?’ I know these whole NBA playoffs have been buzzer-beaters. I didn’t want the game to end on a buzzer beater, and I didn’t want Coach mad at me. “John Wall handed it off, and I chased him. By the time I turned around I saw Paul Pierce shooting the ball, and I was about to cry. I said, ‘Not again.’ It went through, but the basketball gods were on our side. They let us get through this one.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Hawks offered Millsap a four-year deal two years ago, and he wanted a two-year deal. He believed two strong seasons in Atlanta could earn him one last big four-year deal, and it looks like the gamble paid off. Only question is, will the Hawks keep him and that solid nucleus intact or is Millsap gone? Millsap likes his situation in Atlanta, and the Hawks have the inside track to retain him.

Paul Millsap will miss at least two games with a right shoulder injury. The Atlanta Hawks can live with that diagnosis, as long as their All-Star forward is healthy for the playoffs. X-rays were negative, the Hawks announced Monday, with an MRI showing that Millsap sprained and bruised his shoulder against Brooklyn this past weekend. Aiken Standard

Millsap suffered a right shoulder contusion and mild sprain during Saturday’s game against the Nets. He will miss the next two games – versus the Suns Tuesday and at the Nets Wednesday – and will be re-evaluated. X-rays were negative and an MRI exam revealed the sprain. “When someone has an MRI or gets banged like that you are worried something more might be revealed,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “We are pleased.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Hawks' Paul Millsap was asked specifically if temperatures have any impact on a player's choice. "It shouldn't," he said with a smile. "I don't know. I've seen it all. I've been in Atlanta, I've been in Utah. Utah is one of the coldest places. To me, it's all about the team, it's all about the development. Those are what I base my decisions on." Newsday

Millsap: “I would welcome him back. We still don’t know the truth as far as everything that’s going on or everything that happened. I try to stay out of it. But we had a great relationship before all of this happened. I’m not going to let one day throw that relationship down the drain. People make mistakes.” NBA.com

Potential candidates had better want to play in the Triangle Offense, because Fisher will continue to run it. And they will have to fully buy in on Anthony - believing that he’ll not just recover from his current knee troubles and probable upcoming surgery but that they'll also be able to win big with him as a teammate. "I’ll base my decision off what I see - where the team is, will I be able to grow with the team, how is the coach, and the community," Millsap, the Atlanta Hawks forward, told me during the Friday player media sessions. "There are a lot of things that factor into it, including who’s building the team and the owner. Yes, those are factors I will look at." NBC New York
