Horford dunks on alley-oop from Teague and Hawks lead 89-77.
Horford very efficient in first half with 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting and 6 assists.
Player of the week winners: 3 times: Klay, LeBron. 2 times: Aldridge, Curry, Harden, Horford, Irving, Lillard, Westbrook, MO WILLIAMS.
Lots of love for Monroe but he’s not the answer. Need a 2-way PF …. Millsap or Horford (he can play either spot) would be the dream.
The problem going without Whiteside and Chris Birdman is the lack of deterrence at the rim. Al Horford walked in for his first two scores.
1. The Nets get the top pick. 2. The Hawks draft Towns with it. 3. Horford slides to PF as Millsap gets overpaid elsewhere. 4. The NBA ends.
Millsap and Brand check in for Horford and Pero
Pretty horrible no call there on that Horford attempt but no doubt Coach Bud was tired of watching this
Spurs go back up 20 after Horford commits the Hawks' 14th turnover of the game.
Korver and Horford return for the Hawks
The Hawks' starting five of Teague, Korver, Carroll, Millsap & Horford in 51 games this season: Offense: 110.8 PP/100 Defense: 101.7 PP/100
I'm ok with Hawks half. Missing 2 of best 7 players, Horford can't shoot, Hawks can't score, Warriors can't miss. Hawks down 12.
If you told me Horford would be scoreless until 9:00 left in first half and Hawks would only be down 1, I'd be ok with that.
Elton Brand starts at center for Al Horford (gettign) getting the "You've been given life when we forgot you played" award.
Atlanta Hawks going without Al Horford and Kyle Korver. Kent Bazemore and Elton Brand starting in their place.
Wesley Johnson committed a reach-in foul with 45.2 seconds to play, putting Horford on the foul line. He hit 1 of 2. ATL up 5, 44.9 left.
Al Horford's 5th steal resulted in points on the other end, the Hawks increasing their lead to 67-58. Al has 20 points as well.
Carlos Boozer attempted to steal the ball there, but it resulted in an Al Horford dunk. He could have just yelled to force another turnover.
LAL lost a Clarkson hoop due to a shot clock violation (upon further review), and Horford's J put ATL up 57-49 out of a time out.
LAL had missed 12 straight shots before Jordan Hill's bucket at the 5:40 mark, as the Hawks lead 11-8 behind 6 points from Horford.
Both teams are ice cold to start, LAL hitting 2 of 10 FG's and Atlanta 3 of 10 after B2B Al Horford hoops.
I think Al Horford just went up over Tucker's back to try to catch a nonexistent lob at the Suns' basket.
Horford, Noah, Conley, Durant and Batum just made a lot of money.
