Cavs hang on for first Game 1 road win in team history (1-14). Same for LeBron (1-8 lifetime). 97-89 over Hawks. James 31 pts, JR Smith 28.
Final: Cavaliers 97, Hawks 89. Cavs lead series 1-0.
Hawks. Seriously. Did you not watch ANY game tape of Butler sagging on D vs LeBron, nor look at stats of Bron's fg % shooting jumpers? SMH.
Hawks just laid out the red carpet.
Hawks played that Flip Saunders “open the lane for LeBron to dunk” defense, circa 2007
Hawks have it down to 4. Nhl in OT. Letterman on in 30 min. Helluva night
Amazing that Hawks doctors don't know the extent of DeMarre's injury yet all the Twitter surgeons figured it out from their living rooms.
Hawks run now 13-1, trail 91-87 with 47 seconds left.
Hawks on 11-1 run to pull within 91-85 with 1:57 left.
LET'S GO HAWKS
Hawks sure could use Thabo Sefelosha now.
Five Hawks bench players have 17 points. J.R. Smith is only Cav bench player to score but has 28.
Hawks DeMarre Carroll's injury a "left leg injury" and he will not return for the rest of Game 1.
Hawks say DeMarre Carroll has left leg injury and will not return. Think we knew that.
Hawks say DeMarre Carroll has a left leg injury. Will not return. Nothing more specific.
Understand how much the loss of DeMarre Carroll will impact Hawks, but it won't be an excuse to fold like a tent moving forward
If ... If Carroll misses extended playing time in the series then the series is over. Hawks can't win without him .
Very tough break for the Atlanta Hawks ... but they still have four All-Star players who are capable of raising their respective games.
I'd love to see the Hawks come all the way back here. Super-sucks what's gone down in this game.
The Hawks could sure use Thabo Sefolosha now.
God Bless Carroll, bruh really is one of the hawks most consistent guys
Damn that didn't look good. Really hope it's not as bad as it seems. Hawks really need Carroll to get to the Finals. 🙏🏾 🙏🏻 Hope he's ok
Carroll is the Hawks leading scorer in the postseason, the best defender and is set to be a free agent this off-season. Horrible.
Standing O from Hawks fans as DeMarre is helped to the locker room.
DeMarre Carroll is being helped off the court. Tough break for Hawks.
DeMarre Carroll left knee injury. devastating for Hawks
Ci mancava solo l'infortunio di Carroll agli Hawks...
remember when everyone said Hawks reminded them of Spurs? what happened to that team? have hardly had a possession with 3 passes
Hawks aren't even making a cursory effort on the offensive glass.
The Hawks' five best players take the court ... all at the same time!
Hawks shot 23.5 percent (4 of 17) in third quarter.
Ugly third quarter numbers for Atlanta. Hawks scored 16 points, shot 23.5% from the floor, 20% from three, turned it over five times.
Cavs 11-0 to start 4th, Hawks 7-0 right back to get within 11. not over yet
Right about now the Hawks need JR Smith to punch somebody.
JR Smith is 7-of-9 from thee-point territory tonight. The Hawks entire team is a combined 3-of-15 on three's
J.R.’s absurd shots cancel out all the open threes the Hawks are allowing.
Hawks have been exposed to some major swagger in these playoffs and need to grow some swagger of their own.
The Hawks might make the Finals. We needed a hero. http://t.co/SUk0wcQkwc
Hawks now missing easy 2s. Cavs making tough 3s. Not a winning formula.
