Interesting. RT @Chris Webber: Hangin with the big Homie! http://t.co/2hZ1jh8aOT

Paul Millsap

Tough loss last night but that's what preseason is about. Learn and get better. #atlhawks #atl #ATLOpeningTIP

Kent Bazemore

Most people dismiss negativity; few use it as fuel.. #SheepDog

Lang Greene

Al Jefferson was the marquee player the Hornets needed for credibility, but Steve Clifford was the coach needed for stability.

Lang Greene

Steve Clifford reminding Hornets fans that Lance Stephenson is the third option in Charlotte behind Al and Kemba basketballinsiders.com/hornets-coach-…

Jason Walker

The Bulls beat the #ATLHawks on a buzzer beater and all I got was this lousy recap. peachtreehoops.com/2014/10/16/699…

Lang Greene

Interesting. Gordon Hayward's shooting percentage has declined every season since entering league 2011: 49% 2012: 46% 2013: 44% 2014: 41%

Lang Greene

Lakers don't look good at all this preseason. The sun is hot.

Hawks vs. Bulls Final Score: Chicago rallies late against Atlanta bench sbnation.com/e/6756414

Buddy Grizzard

I don't think it was about resting guys @bochurney I think Bud is specifically interested in throwing his reserves in the fire.

Buddy Grizzard

HawksHoop's @bochurney on how the Hawks more or less beat the Bulls, final score aside: hawkshoop.com/hawks-pretty-m…

Kent Bazemore

Two games since 04-06-14.. Feeling great.

Buddy Grizzard

Payne was actually more solid defensively than I expected, and mistakes he made were predictable. Muscala and Jenkins gotta step it up.

Buddy Grizzard

So in conclusion, I'm really liking our point guard rotation. Mack is rock solid and for the first time I'm having optimism re: Schröder

Buddy Grizzard

And he had several clutch plays down the stretch. It was two badly missed shots by Muscala and dribbling exhibition by Payne that killed it.

Buddy Grizzard

Schröder I expressed the most doubt about earlier today hawkshoop.com/hawks-analysis… but he really showed me something: 11 PTS 6 AST 50% FG 3 TO

Buddy Grizzard

Payne looked like a rookie. He did some good things and some bad. He had good moments guarding Pau and Noah. No complaints. He'll get better

Buddy Grizzard

Not sure what John Jenkins did to go plus-19 through 3 qtrs but the 4th qtr exposed why his 4th-year extension remains a major ???

Buddy Grizzard

...because he can shoot. Those couple of bad bricks in the 4th were not a good look. Gotta have composure to knock those down under the gun.

Buddy Grizzard

Since @bochurney got the recap, I will share my observations here. Muscala needs to get that confidence up. They picked him over Ayon...

Al Horford

Good game vs the Bulls. Let's keep getting better each game. #Hawks #HawksRising

Kent Bazemore

I know San Francisco is on fire...

Al Horford

Buen juego esta noche contra Chicago. Seguimos mejorando como equipo. #Hawks #HawksRising

Jaryd Wilson

Blame @peachtreehoops! http://t.co/zBr9hWWZi4

Jaryd Wilson

"There were a ton of positives, especially defensively, for three quarters." - Coach Bud

Buddy Grizzard

Who cares? It's preseason... refs made it fun.

Buddy Grizzard

Also whining @geeman215 ? Are you f-ing stupid? Bulls had to run their starters for 30 minutes against Hawks 3rd string for meaningless win

Buddy Grizzard

How was it a foul @geeman215 ? Eddie had his hands at his side and his back turned to Butler to make sure he didn't foul.

Buddy Grizzard

I'd just like to reiterate, Jarell Eddie did not so much as breath on Butler when they gave him three free throws. Refs were caught up.

Jaryd Wilson

Getting the start tonight, @Mike Scott led the way with 15 points for us. Full box score here: on.nba.com/1sWmW2M

Buddy Grizzard

That was Bud telling Jenkins, "This is what it takes to play at this level."

Buddy Grizzard

In a regular season game, John Jenkins would never be asked to guard Jimmy Butler.

Jaryd Wilson

Wow. Butler wins it with a three at the buzzer. Final: 85-84 Chicago.

Buddy Grizzard

Schröder AGAIN RIGHT INTO NOAH'S CHEST SIT DOWN SON.

Jaryd Wilson

Dennis took it right at Noah in the paint and got the layup. We're up 84-82 but still need one more stop.

Jaryd Wilson

Dennis hits with 1.5 to go!

Buddy Grizzard

Butler makes all three FTs and it's tied 82-82. They just showed the replay and there was absolutely no foul on Eddie.

Jaryd Wilson

Chicago ties it on 3 free throws from Butler. We have the last shot...what's your play call?

Buddy Grizzard

Stacey King: "That was more like Eddie Haskell."

Buddy Grizzard

Jenkins started the 4th plus-19. He's now plus-6. Payne is minus-17, now on the bench after Scott replaced him.

Buddy Grizzard

Scott silences the Chicago crowd with a pair of free throws to put the Hawks up 82-79 with :19 to play.

Jaryd Wilson

Mike Scott, in for Adreian, calmly hits both free throws. Lead back to 3, 19 seconds left.

Buddy Grizzard

Wow Payne put on a dribbling exhibition there, leads to a Gasol dunk and a 1-point Hawks lead with :23 to play.

Jaryd Wilson

It's trial by fire for the youngsters! Bulls cut it to just 1 with 23.3 left.

Buddy Grizzard

Doogie Budenhowser is letting the young bucks learn on the job.

Buddy Grizzard

WOW Schröder cut through Chicago's starting front court for a layup.

Buddy Grizzard

After a Muscala brick, two Butler free throws and Chicago are within three with 2:09 to play

Jaryd Wilson

Dennis, John, Jarell, Mike Muscala and Adreian on the floor the rest of the way for us with a 78-75 lead.

Buddy Grizzard

Stacey King still making reference to Mike Budenhowzer.

Buddy Grizzard

Bulls down 78-71 with the ball with 2:56 to play.

Buddy Grizzard

Schröder hits a 15-footer to give the Hawks its first field goal since the 7-minute mark then dives to knock ball away and save layup.

Buddy Grizzard

With Jarrell Eddie no less.

Buddy Grizzard

Muscala, Payne, Schröder and Jenkins, all four of my question marks, on the floor against Bulls starters to close this out.

Jaryd Wilson

Bulls' first unit has given them a spark, and they're as close as they've been this half. Let's see what our young guys can do!

Buddy Grizzard

Jimmy Butler has abused Jenkins on consecutive plays in the post.

Buddy Grizzard

Starters in for the Bulls. Watch this. Starters not in for the Hawks.

Jaryd Wilson

For the third straight game, our reserves will battle the opponent's starters in the fourth. Noah, Gasol and Butler back in for Chicago.

Buddy Grizzard

Bulls winning the 4th quarter 12-7, have pulled within 73-59 under 8 min. Muscala getting on the job training trying to handle Taj Gibson.

Buddy Grizzard

Thabo is finding out what Millsap and Carroll found out last year: Playing for Bud = freedom.

Buddy Grizzard

While I have a lot of anxiety about decisions Carroll and Millsap will make in offseason, I think players will want to stay with Bud.

Buddy Grizzard

This time Sefolosha with the same spin move on Aaron Brooks, just abused him, got the layup and the foul. Thabo has to be loving this.

Jaryd Wilson

Thabo's spin move is... It's... #wow

Buddy Grizzard

Scott checked in for Payne and left Mirotic with too much room on the three.

Buddy Grizzard

I remember how stunned I felt early last season at how rapidly the Hawks picked up a brand new system. Feeling same way about progress now.

Jaryd Wilson

Points allowed, by quarter: 1st: 15 2nd: 17 3rd: 15 #Defense

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks outscore Bulls 25-14 in 3rd. It's only preseason. It's only preseason. It's only preseason. It's only preseason. It's only preseason.

Jaryd Wilson

Three quarters in the books, we're up 66-47.

Buddy Grizzard

Such a nice spin move in the lane by Sefo but couldn't get it to go down.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks regular starters: Horford 16 MIN; Carroll 18 MIN; Korver 15 MIN. Bulls starters all 21-25 MIN.

Buddy Grizzard

Seeing insane amounts of defensive improvement from Hawks who struggled in that arena last season.

Buddy Grizzard

Mack and Baze in as the back court with Scott, Brand and Carroll

Buddy Grizzard

Jenkins went freelance there, got away with leaving McBuckets alone on the weak side.

Jaryd Wilson

Al Horford's line: 16 minutes 4 points 6 rebounds 2 assists 1 steal We are +12 with him out there.

Buddy Grizzard

Tough step back from the elbow from Mike Scott with the shot clock running down.
