If all Hawks fans have to worry about is Pero Antic, the team is in very good shape.
Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins and Mike Scott are the only Atlanta Hawks draft picks since 2010 still on the roster.
The six teams I think could win the title, ranked as of Feb. 26: 1. Cavs 2. Warriors 3. Grizzlies 4. Thunder 5. Spurs 6. Hawks
Flipped to the Hawks game. They were up by 7 on Dallas. So walked away for a few minutes. Flipped back. The lead was 21. They score quick.
Dirk checks out with 9:44 left before a Korver three lifts the Hawks to an 89-68 lead. The big German might be done for the night.
Good stuff for Mavs, shooting 52.6% and outrebounding Hawks 23-16. Bad for Mavs, only 3 timeouts remaining for rest of game.
Half: Mavs 53, Hawks 47. Monta Ellis 15 points. J.J. Barea 9 points, 4 assists.
I won't praise the Hawks' D this half, but price in the fact that it's one of those unconscious Monta Ellis crazytime games.
