Chris Vivlamore

Al Horford done. Getting both knees iced.

Joe Gabriele

Now ATL's Horford being helped to Hawks bench, walking gingerly, favoring R knee.

Kevin Arnovitz

Now Al Horford is being carried off the court by trainer Wally Blase and Mike Scott ... Then Horford finds his footing and walks himself off

Bob Finnan

Minutes after Kyle Korver limped to the locker room, Al Horford (left knee) is helped to the bench

Ethan J. Skolnick

Hawks helping Horford to the bench. Crowd applauding. This has gone as badly as it could for Atlanta.

Chris Vivlamore

And now Al Horford being helped off the court.

Chris Fedor

Now Al Horford is hobbled for Atlanta.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Al Horford now struggling to get up

Jeff Zillgitt

Hawks shooting 48.8% from the field, 36.4% on threes. Korver with 12 points, Horford with 7, Teague with 10 points, five assists.

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs bigs not setting world on fire, but Hawks All-Star duo (Horford & Milsap) just 10 shot attempts, combined 11pts,7reb.

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Hawks offense is a mess, when Horford isn't even looking for his shot, and the best alternative is a Schroder jumper

Rick Noland

Horford not any better than Millsap so far

Lang Whitaker

Hawks guards getting plenty of looks but Cavs have been shutting down Horford/Millsap

Joe Gabriele

Al Horford just attempted and hit his first FG, 7:50, 2Q.

Jeff Zillgitt

Al Horford hasn't attempted a shot. Paul Millsap is 1-for-5.

Sean Highkin

Ugh hope Horford is OK.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Al Horford walking gingerly on sideline

Kris Willis

Al Horford didn’t take a shot in the first quarter

Ethan J. Skolnick

Paul Millsap was 1-for-5 in first quarter. Al Horford didn't take a shot. Tristan Thompson is the one who has looked like the All-Star.

Lang Whitaker

So far Bud has subbed out Millsap and Horford but DeMarre is still in the game.

Paul Millsap

Ready to go to work with my brothers tonight!!! #TrueBelievers @Al Horford @DeMarre Carroll @KyleKorver @Teague0 http://t.co/Cfq10X7ZBB

"We understand the importance of this game. We've been in similar positions like this before, and we have a tough group." - @Al Horford

Chris Vivlamore

Just noticed, Al Horford received one First Team All NBA vote.

Ryan Wolstat

Wall, Butler, Millsap, Horford all easily could have earned a spot on one of the All-NBA teams. Pau Gasol just a weird choice

Mike McGraw

If there was 4th team All-NBA, Jimmy Butler would have been on it. Joined Kawhi Leonard, Wall, Horford, Millsap at top of others rec votes

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks' Paul Millsap, Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver all got All-NBA team votes. None made three teams.

Lang Greene

Game One ECF. Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov (24 points, 21 rebounds). Al Horford and Paul Millsap (29 points, 14 rebounds)

Adi Joseph

I'd so much rather have Carroll or Horford than Millsap on LeBron. And Millsap is a good defender.

Adi Joseph

Vote: Horford 48 minutes the rest of the playoffs.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Horford's played 24 minutes and has just two fouls. Not sure what Budenholzer is saving him for.

Jason Lloyd

Half: #Cavs 51, Hawks 51. James 16p,4a,3r; Thompson 8p,7r; Mozgov 8p,7r; Irving 6p,3a. ATL Teague 17p; Horford 10p. CLE 50%,9TO; ATL 58%,6TO

Jason Lloyd

End 1Q: Hawks 26, #Cavs 20. James 2p,4a; Irving 6p; TT 4p,6r; Mozgov 4p,5r. ATL Teague 9p; Horford 4p; Millsap 4p. CLE 35%,6TO; ATL 61%, 1TO

Amin Elhassan

So tough to guard: pinch post Horford, strong side down screen for Korver, who comes off and takes the handoff.

Chris Mannix

Al Horford from midrange is going to be a problem for Timofey Mozgov

Mark Deeks

Got time for one more Hawks/Cavs preview? Course you have. Here's @blanchardJRB on LBJ V Horford, Monarch vs Soldier. bit.ly/1cOZNdt
