Hawks' Carroll (11 pts), Millsap (8), Teague (7) and Horford (1) got NBA All-Defensive team votes. Carroll, Teague got 1st team votes.
Paul Millsap: “They are a good basketball team but we feel like we are a good basketball team too.”
Irving on guarding Teague: "I just have to stay attached to him and make his shots tough and not let him play so free all the time."
LeBron James on Hawks: “We are going against a very tough team, a team that has been playing great basketball all year."
Couldn't move back up north man ... everything is overpriced. Swear if some of those companies could charge you for oxygen, they would
Don't have time or energy to research but wondering if same ppl upset with Steph also take jabs at NBA players and kids out of wedlock.
NBA Draft - 1st overall pick odds? Karl-Anthony Towns 1/2 Jahlil Okafor 7/4 Any Other Player 5/1
Ok, I’ll step forward and admit I was a Talk-About guy, but I was young! I, I, thought it was cool. Everybody was doing it!
So who will be the first between Towns and Okafor to try and hide from the Timberwolves, playground pick-‘em style, to play in Los Angeles?
Good morning... What a great day to be in Atlanta!
Playoff free throw attempt leaders (and, um, not leaders). http://t.co/341Cck0rFZ
The Wizards enjoyed a change in free throw differential of +5.8 in the playoffs. Nets were +1.9. Hawks -3.
Hawks 18.8 FTA lowest of any team regular season or playoffs. Hawks attempting 3 fewer than regular season. http://t.co/idsGwVc8Sj
Officials for Game 1 of Eastern Conference finals are: Scott Foster, Pat Fraher, Jason Phillips, alternate Josh Tiven.
I am fairly certain that Riley Curry can already shoot better than I do. Five nines certain, at the very least.
Nevertheless, losing almost a full basket on wide open shots is significant given how many close games Hawks have played in post-season.
As result, I said Hawks were scoring 4 fewer points off open shots in post-season, which was an overstatement. Only losing 1.5 vs reg season
So I guess we can rule out bicycle kick-goals in hockey, too? That would have been sweet.
Dwight Howard missed seven games total in his first seven seasons in the league. Tough to see the man become so prone to injuries
So if you're part of Hawks can't win cause Cavs have two superstars crowd, please explain why Kyrie's PER is indistinguishable from Carroll.
Also in the ECF preview, the Hawks are the only conference finalist with four players ranked in the top 12 in PER among remaining players.
Hawks are dead last in free throws attempted (18.8) per game out of 16 playoff teams. Superstar calls much? The ref factor is quantifiable.
During regular season Hawks were plus-1.1 in free throw differential. In the playoffs, the Hawks are minus-1.9, worst among conf finalists.
In HawksHoop's Eastern Conference Finals Preview, we explore how the Hawks have plummeted in free throw differential in the playoffs.
Josh Smith getting lose ... Conference Finals.
If James Harden gets off this series he's going to earn it. Warriors have plenty of long wings guys to throw at him - Dre, Barnes and Klay.
Listen, I like this Clint Capela kid. At least, playoff Capela.
James Harden all in his playmaker goody bag tonight
