Mike McGraw

Hawks with Dennis Schroder at PG and Shelvin Mack the leading scorer, win by 29 at Cleveland tonight. Mike Budenholzer is for real.

Peter Vecsey

18-7 Hawks, sans Teague (top scorer/assists) beat Cavs (4 Ls last 5) by 29 on road. Danny Ferry executive of year. Lue inching over on bench

Kris Willis

Anybody still want to talk about the Hawks' strength of schedule?

Jeff Zillgitt

Nearly 45 minutes after Cavs lost to Hawks, Kyrie Irving on the court working w/assistants. LeBron watched for a bit then talked to Irving.

Chris Haynes

Kyrie Irving is out on court, well after the loss to the Hawks, getting shots up and going through drills with assistant coach Phil Handy.

Al Horford

Gran victoria contra Cleveland. Seguimos mejorando como equipo! #Hawks #HawksRising

Sam Amico

Cavs' LeBron James, when asked if he was embarrassed by 127-98 loss to Hawks: "No. I'm only embarrassed to lose in the Finals."

Al Horford

Great Win on the road vs the Cavs. Big games from @DennisMike93 and @Shelvin Mack Go Hawks! #HawksRising

Josh Newman

The Hawks, huh? OK then

Kevin Arnovitz

Goodness gracious, @Jaryd Wilson http://t.co/Gjqc6jcD2G

Chris Haynes

#Cavs head coach David Blatt called the way in which they lost to Hawks "embarrassing."

Jason Walker

Ever want to read about a Hawks blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers? Tonight's the night! sbnation.com/e/7177724

Sam Amico

Kyrie Irving still on floor in warmup shirt, putting up jumpers. Finished 4-9 shooting for 9 pts, 6 assists in loss to Hawks.

Defense crumbles again in 127-98 loss to Hawks: ohio.com/blogs/clevelan…

Sam Amico

Nearly one month ago, Cavs beat Hawks 127-94. Hawks get 127 tonight. Without leading scorer Jeff Teague. On road. Coach Bud so underrated.

Chris Haynes

Quick Gamer: #Cavs hit with a Mack Truck as reserve Shelvin Mack overwhelms, guiding Hawks to a 127-98 rout cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Steve Koonin

These @Jaryd Wilson are the real deal. Any more questions? Couldn't be more proud of OUR team tonight #forshizzle

Hawks Cheerleaders

How about our HAWKS!!! Amazing road win over the Cavs!

Sam Amico

Remember when Cavs pummeled ATL at home? Not so much tonight. Rising Hawks soar 127-98. Shelvin Mack, (yes, Shelvin Mack) game-high 24 pts.

Bob Finnan

Hawks 127, #Cavs 98, final. Total embarrassment for Cavs. Hawks G Shelvin Mack had career-high 21 points. ATL made 16 of 28 3s.

Dave McMenamin

Easily worst Cavs loss of the season, 127-98, to the Hawks to fall to 14-10. Cleveland allows Atlanta to shoot 64.5 pct from the field.

Chris Vivlamore

Final: Hawks 127, Cavaliers 98. Hawks are legit. #ATLHawks

Jeff Zillgitt

Granted, Kevin Love is ill, but a nice win for Hawks. Should've seen this coming. Hawks were 3 in East last season when Horford got hurt.

Jeff Zillgitt

Since consecutive losses to Cavs & Lakers in mid-November, Hawks are 12-2, No. 3 in East & about to beat Cavs on the road w/out Jeff Teague.

Brendan Bowers

What is record for Team FG% in one game? Hawks at 65% can't be too far off

Chris Fedor

That's not 50 points in the paint for the Hawks. Outside, inside. They are getting whatever they want

Ric Bucher

I only know a few of the @Jaryd Wilson well enough to vouch for their character. But they collectively play like a high-character team.

Lang Whitaker

Hawks outchea making believers out of haters... http://t.co/xTZ11AXYRj

Chris Vivlamore

Said several times I wanted to see how the Hawks responded to that loss to Cavs last month. Guess I have my answer. #ATLHawks

Jeff Zillgitt

Hawks up 95-75 on Cavs, outscoring Cleveland 30-15 in the third quarter. Since 6:08 of second quarter, Hawks on 57-25 run and shooting 71%.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs were held to 15 third-quarter points. Hawks playing defense and scoring at will. They're showing you can do both.

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: Hawks 95, #Cavs 75. James 21p; Love 13p,9r,6a; Irving 9p,6a; Thompson 7p,5r. ATL Mack 20p; Millsap 14p,8r. CLE 48%, 8TO; ATL 66%,8TO

Rick Bonnell

Hawks thumping Cavs by 20 after three quarters.

Bob Finnan

Hawks 95, #Cavs 75, end third Q. This one is getting embarrassing. Hawks shooting 66% from field, made 14 of 25 from the behind arc

Chris Haynes

At the end of three, Hawks 95 Cavs 75. Shelvin Mack is 6-for-6 from three for 20 points. James has 21 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 95, Cavs 75 after three quarters. #ATLHawks

Dave McMenamin

After three quarters the Hawks are shooting 66.1 pct overall and 14-for-25 from 3 (56 pct). ATL up 95-75. http://t.co/ybL5mfdmoQ

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs defense has clearly regressed last few games. This game looks a lot like that loss to Pelicans. Hawks getting whatever they want.

Chris Vivlamore

The Hawks had never made nine 3-pointers in a quarter - until tonight. #ATLHawks

Royce Young

Shelvin Mack is now 6-for-6 on 3-pointers, and has 20 points. Hawks lead Cavs 91-73. This is getting very much out of hand.

Brendan Bowers

Reading something saying Hawks are shooting 70% from field overall (35/50) but that's seems pretty high #Cavs #Hawks

Vince Cellini

The @hawks are toying with @Cleveland Cavaliers near the basket and beyond the arc. 7 different Hawks have hit threes. Atl by 15 late 3rd

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks, once down 12, now lead Cavs by 13, 83-70. #ATLHawks
