For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

Chris Vivlamore

Mike Muscala starts second half for Al Horford.

Jaryd Wilson

Al led us with 14 points on 7-10 FG in the first half. Complete stats here: on.nba.com/1Q5s7Fl #TrueToAtlanta http://t.co/vbenLvwaL9

Lang Greene

Let's see Delladova's work in postseason - drew ejections on Taj Gibson and Al Horford. Knocked Kyle Korver out for remainder of playoffs

Buddy Grizzard

Dellavedova is the dirtiest player in the NBA, trying to end guys' careers. Sickening that the NBA doesn't clean that up.

Jaryd Wilson

Well, we lead at halftime, but we'll have to win this one without our All-Star center. http://t.co/EmWSZ9tqlF

Lang Greene

Would have loved to see coach Budenholzer get indignant at the ejection call. Took the news rather calm for my taste.

Lang Greene

No one sees the slap, but everyone hears the shot.

Jason Walker

I think Darvin could still jump into something, if needed. twitter.com/ryanglancy/sta…

Lang Greene

Delladova does all of that annoying shit and slides by because he looks the innocent part. Incredible.

Jason Walker

LOL -- No but I can think of 12 guys who might. twitter.com/KiddyKong/stat…

Jaryd Wilson

Welp... http://t.co/iNHqG0VApZ

Jason Walker

That will DEFINITELY be reduced to a Flagrant 1

Jason Walker

HALFTIME LEAD, SUCKAS -- LET'S GO HAWKS #TrueToAtlanta

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 49, Cavs. 48 at the half.

Jason Walker

I dare Delly to do that again. Go ahead.

Chris Vivlamore

Oh, and Delladova given a technical.

Jason Walker

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH -- HAHAHAHAHA

Chris Vivlamore

Al Horford ejected with FF-2.

Jason Walker

I'll pull a @Bill Simmons -- GO AHEAD NBA, I DARE YOU TO THROW HORFORD OUT

Jason Walker

Sure, go ahead. Throw out Al. Who cares. Good luck, NBA.

Buddy Grizzard

Another dirty play by Dellavedova trying to take out another Hawks starter.

Chris Vivlamore

Dellavedova took out Horford's legs. Horford gives Dellavedova an elbow. This will be an interesting call.

Jason Walker

Delly trying to roll over another ankle.

Jaryd Wilson

For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

Jason Walker

Hey, that's Paul Millsap!

Jaryd Wilson

For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

Jason Walker

The hot takes are flowing like maple syrup dripping over tasty pancakes and oh no I'm suddenly very hungry.

Chris Vivlamore

The Cavs are shooting 30 percent and lead 42-40 with 2:51 left in second.

Buddy Grizzard

Budenholzer getting embarrassed by Coach James in this series.

Jason Walker

Whatever. If Baze doesn't stare at Delly, I'm not sure that's called. Showed intent to do more than screen.

Buddy Grizzard

Just terrible defense by Millsap. Will Hawks gave away the whole 8-point lead by the half?

Jason Walker

WHY PLAY HIM IF HE'S NOT GOING TO SHOOT/SPACE? twitter.com/peachtreehoops…

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 38, Cavs 30 with 5:22 left in second quarter.

Chris Vivlamore

LeBron has the Cavs last six points.

Jaryd Wilson

For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥

Jason Walker

Great straight-up defense from DeMarre there.

Jason Walker

More lectures from Reggie. Can't get enough.

Jaryd Wilson

Some True Believers at Quicken Loans! #TrueToAtlanta http://t.co/xmxEMmvJTh

Chris Vivlamore

OK. LeBron made a free throw. I'm back.

Jason Walker

I hope whoever wins from the East puts a foot up the Western Conference's butt and shuts up these snobs.

Chris Vivlamore

I'm going to stop tweeting until LeBron James scores.

Buddy Grizzard

Shelvin Mack is a game-worst minus-9.

Jaryd Wilson

For Kyle: 🔥 🔥 🔥

Jaryd Wilson

Al was feeling it in Q1! http://t.co/ViDniPndMt

Jason Walker

Good gravy, ATL. Make a shot in the pain.

Steve Koonin

Good 1Q from Cleveland for our first Koonin family vacation in 10 years. Let's get it done Atlanta! #TrueToAtlanta http://t.co/VFr5cBselv

Buddy Grizzard

This is your top of the hour reminder of how bad Scott and Schröder have been in the ECF: stats.nba.com/team/#!/161061…

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks shooting 44.4 (8 of 18). Cavs shooting 22.2 (6 of 27).

Chris Vivlamore

So LeBron James finishes 0 for 9 in the first quarter.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 24, Cavs 21 after one quarter.

Buddy Grizzard

Three points awarded to the Cavs by the NBA, which knows which side its bread is buttered on.

Buddy Grizzard

Replay shows Bazemore did not so much as breathe on Jones. Refs making their presence felt early.

Jason Walker

I have no response to that foul call.

Jason Walker

If TNT were taking a Hawks/Cavs Facts SAT-type test, they'd be scoring the minimum right now.

Buddy Grizzard

Watch Scott get caught ball watching and leave Jones open for a three.

Buddy Grizzard

Mack ahead of Dennis, yes please.

Buddy Grizzard

Shumpert is Cleveland's best net rating player in the series. Leaving him open is incompetent.

Jaryd Wilson

Lots of feels like this early. http://t.co/MYM2atWxjz

Chris Vivlamore

Cavs off to 1 of 10 start from field.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 12, Cavs 4 with 7:19 left in first. Horford with 8 points.

Jaryd Wilson

12-4 good guys. Al's cookin'

Jason Walker

I don't think Mozgov was allowed to do that.

Buddy Grizzard

Mozgov just caught his own airball, no call.

Jason Walker

Horford already with more shots in the first quarter than Game 2

Buddy Grizzard

Mozgov is Cleveland's worst rotation player in net rating in the series: stats.nba.com/team/#!/161061…

Buddy Grizzard

Thus why my series prediction was wrong: hawkshoop.com/ecf-preview-wi… Hawks have gotten farther and father away from being who they are.

Buddy Grizzard

Per TNT graphic, Hawks averaged 330 passes in reg season, 314 vs Nets, 274 vs Wizards and only 252 so far vs Cavs.

Jason Walker

Don't Stop Believing. Hold onto that feeling, yeaaahh. twitter.com/rembert/status…

Baze's time to shine. #TrueToAtlanta http://t.co/vvJ078UO54
