Notebook leftover, post-G3, ATL-CLE. Hawks' DeMarre Carroll, asked what he'd say to Cavs' Matthew Dellavedova re: reckless play if could...
Also, DeMarre continued to give it all last night. Not any less impressive than Game Three.
DeMarre Carroll on the Horford/Dellavedova incident: http://t.co/DT1aU6DC9N
My goodness... DeMarre tried screening LeBron. LBJ basically was like, "Move, bruh."
Meanwhile, DeMarre. This guy. Hurts me to watch him run. Out there w/ the rudest defensive assignment in the world. Working. Making shots.
Great straight-up defense from DeMarre there.
DeMarre’s moving a lot better than he was in Game 2.
DeMarre Carroll says Hawks remain confident vs. Cavs: "We’re only down 0-2. The media is going to make it bigger than it is."
Hawks F DeMarre Carroll will play with sprained knee in Game 3 vs Cavs. Kent Bazemore to start for injured G/F Kyle Korver (ankle).
On the plus side, DeMarre Carroll no worse after Game 2 and is expected to start again in Game 3.
CMB: DeMarre Carroll came out of Game 2 well, expected to play Game 3.
Hawks are less optimistic about Kyle Korver's condition than they were DeMarre Carroll's the morning after Game 1. Diagnosis soon.
DeMarre Carroll entered ECF averaging 17.1 points, has scored 11 total points in 69 minutes during the series having to guard LeBron James
Q: DeMarre, how was the leg? A: A leg. It was a leg. Um, I got out there, so. We all know I wasn't 100 percent. We all know that.
DeMarre Carroll says he consulted with his agent, the doctor & the coaches before playing. "I wouldn't turn this chance down."
How was DeMarre Carroll's leg? "It was a leg."
DeMarre Carroll: "We played a lot of isolation ball. We didn't play our team ball.... We came out flat."
DeMarre on LeBron: He's a great player, he knew I was hurt and he came at me with full force. I would've done the same thing.
I can't believe DeMarre Carroll played as many minutes as he did tonight. Impressive. Kudos to him.
DeMarre Carroll at the podium, grimaces as he sits down. Tough dude
Coach Bud says he thinks Al will be okay. He'll know more on Kyle and DeMarre tomorrow but says DeMarre is "in a pretty good place."
DeMarre Carroll, who led the Hawks with 34 minutes, limps into their locker room
DeMarre Carroll, who wasn't supposed to play, is 2nd on the Hawks in minutes w/ 30 & w/ Korver out, will soon be first.
Does it make sense to play DeMarre Carroll when LeBron James is on the bench? Such a big drop off from Carroll defending LeBron to Bazemore.
By the end of this game, DeMarre Carroll will be the Hawks' healthiest starter
19 first half minutes for DeMarre Carroll. Didn’t see that coming
DeMarre Carroll's mouthguard on floor. Joey Crawford picks it up. Carroll sticks in his sock.
DeMarre Carroll doesn't have much, but is really competing.
DeMarre Carroll in for Bazemore. Carroll was icing knee. Short rest, so it doesn't stiffen
DeMarre Carroll wasn't especially effective in first stint, so I wonder if he gets a second in half -- or if Budenholzer looks at Mike Scott
DeMarre Carroll has ice wrap on knee on the bench after he came out.
Kent Bazemore getting ready to check in for DeMarre Carroll.
So far Bud has subbed out Millsap and Horford but DeMarre is still in the game.
This also saves LeBron James' energy on one end when he's guarding DeMarre Carroll right now.
DeMarre Carroll looks like he won't last very long tonight. Ouch.
Huge ovation from Hawks home crowd for DeMarre Carroll when PA announcer introduced him -- "He's back" -- as a starter.
Huge ovation for DeMarre Carroll.
Lil B healed DeMarre. Remarkable talent.
As I said earlier today during a radio interview, anything DeMarre Carroll can give Atlanta will give it a lift emotionally.
shocked DeMarre Carroll is playing. how well, TBA
