Sam Amico

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.

Chris Vivlamore

Final: Cavaliers 97, Hawks 89. Cavs lead series 1-0.

Jason Lloyd

NBA playoffs: Cavs lead Hawks 74-67 after three quarters: Cavs 74, Hawks 67 The game turned more physical ... bit.ly/1Lnp2zF

Carlos Areneta

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.

Tom Haberstroh

Hawks just laid out the red carpet.

Vincent Goodwill

Hawks played that Flip Saunders “open the lane for LeBron to dunk” defense, circa 2007

Eric Smith

Hawks have it down to 4. Nhl in OT. Letterman on in 30 min. Helluva night

Frank Isola

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.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks run now 13-1, trail 91-87 with 47 seconds left.

Ben Golliver

Video: Hawks' DeMarre Carroll leaves Game 1 vs. Cavaliers with left leg injury on.si.com/1LdxAbz http://t.co/DWU1nZjsSK

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks on 11-1 run to pull within 91-85 with 1:57 left.

Shaun Powell

Hawks sure could use Thabo Sefelosha now.

Chris Vivlamore

Five Hawks bench players have 17 points. J.R. Smith is only Cav bench player to score but has 28.

Jeff Zillgitt

Hawks DeMarre Carroll's injury a "left leg injury" and he will not return for the rest of Game 1.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks say DeMarre Carroll has left leg injury and will not return. Think we knew that.

Chris Mannix

Hawks say DeMarre Carroll has a left leg injury. Will not return. Nothing more specific.

Lang Greene

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

Chuck Swirsky

If ... If Carroll misses extended playing time in the series then the series is over. Hawks can't win without him .

Lang Greene

Very tough break for the Atlanta Hawks ... but they still have four All-Star players who are capable of raising their respective games.

Jason Walker

I'd love to see the Hawks come all the way back here. Super-sucks what's gone down in this game.

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Hawks could sure use Thabo Sefolosha now.

Anthony Morrow

God Bless Carroll, bruh really is one of the hawks most consistent guys

Sam Amico

Fingers crossed for DeMarre Carroll. That looked bad. Being helped to locker room. #cavs #hawks

Earl Barron

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

Chris Fedor

Carroll is the Hawks leading scorer in the postseason, the best defender and is set to be a free agent this off-season. Horrible.

Lang Whitaker

Standing O from Hawks fans as DeMarre is helped to the locker room.

Chris Haynes

DeMarre Carroll is being helped off the court. Tough break for Hawks.

Rick Noland

DeMarre Carroll left knee injury. devastating for Hawks

Simone Sandri

Ci mancava solo l'infortunio di Carroll agli Hawks...

Bob Finnan

#Cavs destroying Hawks on boards, 44-29

Amin Elhassan

Hawks right now singing along to @Sir_Foster "Is JR....on the floor....if he aint....let me know.."

Chris Vernon

remember when everyone said Hawks reminded them of Spurs? what happened to that team? have hardly had a possession with 3 passes

Lang Whitaker

Hawks aren't even making a cursory effort on the offensive glass.

Kevin Arnovitz

The Hawks' five best players take the court ... all at the same time!

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks shot 23.5 percent (4 of 17) in third quarter.

Chris Mannix

Ugly third quarter numbers for Atlanta. Hawks scored 16 points, shot 23.5% from the floor, 20% from three, turned it over five times.

Rick Noland

Cavs 11-0 to start 4th, Hawks 7-0 right back to get within 11. not over yet

Jeff Caplan

Right about now the Hawks need JR Smith to punch somebody.

Tommy Beer

JR Smith is 7-of-9 from thee-point territory tonight. The Hawks entire team is a combined 3-of-15 on three's

Mike Prada

J.R.’s absurd shots cancel out all the open threes the Hawks are allowing.

Jason Walker

Hawks have been exposed to some major swagger in these playoffs and need to grow some swagger of their own.

Jason Lloyd

Cavaliers notebook: NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas says Hawks have edge on bench — with players and coach: ATL... bit.ly/1K3tmmC

Andrew Sharp

The Hawks might make the Finals. We needed a hero. http://t.co/SUk0wcQkwc

Michael Lee

#hawks better usher JR Smith to the club after this game & make sure he doesn't leave until tip-off for Game 2

Kevin Arnovitz

Hawks now missing easy 2s. Cavs making tough 3s. Not a winning formula.
