Hey @sprint what about 15-year customers ... do we get to cut our bills in half too? Or are you just concerned with acquiring new customers?

Chris Vivlamore

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.”

Chris Vivlamore

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."

Jaryd Wilson

Thanks friends. We've come a long way since losing Summer League avatar bets. #TrueToAtlanta twitter.com/trailblazers/s…

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.

The look of a man with no power to stop onslaught "@Nate Jones: Look at Lucious Harris face in this pick though! twitter.com/ron_hamp/statu…"

Lang Greene

NBA Draft - 1st overall pick odds? Karl-Anthony Towns 1/2 Jahlil Okafor 7/4 Any Other Player 5/1

Jason Walker

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!

Jason Walker

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?

Playoff free throw attempt leaders (and, um, not leaders). http://t.co/341Cck0rFZ

Buddy Grizzard

I'm glad I haven't had to write the annual postmortem yet because ow @LedellsPlace truthaboutit.net/2015/05/randy-…

Buddy Grizzard

The Wizards enjoyed a change in free throw differential of +5.8 in the playoffs. Nets were +1.9. Hawks -3.

Buddy Grizzard

Every team that's faced Cavs has seen a noticeable drop in FT differential reg season to playoffs. cc: @BobRathbunTV http://t.co/rlVXVxoeWZ

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks 18.8 FTA lowest of any team regular season or playoffs. Hawks attempting 3 fewer than regular season. http://t.co/idsGwVc8Sj

Chris Vivlamore

Officials for Game 1 of Eastern Conference finals are: Scott Foster, Pat Fraher, Jason Phillips, alternate Josh Tiven.

Buddy Grizzard

The closest team to the Hawks is averaging two more FTA per game: espn.go.com/nba/statistics… Good to know Hawks are no longer being fouled.

Buddy Grizzard

Atlanta's 18.8 FTA in playoffs ranks 16 of 16 playoff teams. Would rank 30th of 30 teams during regular season: espn.go.com/nba/statistics…

Jason Walker

I am fairly certain that Riley Curry can already shoot better than I do. Five nines certain, at the very least.

Buddy Grizzard

Nevertheless, losing almost a full basket on wide open shots is significant given how many close games Hawks have played in post-season.

Buddy Grizzard

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

Buddy Grizzard

I just went back and corrected my math in the ECF preview: hawkshoop.com/ecf-preview-wi… Miscalculated points scored on open shots in playoffs.

Jason Walker

So I guess we can rule out bicycle kick-goals in hockey, too? That would have been sweet.

Lang Greene

Good question. Off the top of my head, not many. Mailman was pretty durable before his body broke down. Admiral too. twitter.com/hoopslaureate/…

Lang Greene

I like guys bringing out their kids during NBA playoffs. Human element. Not bad for a league once considered thug twitter.com/Loganw2324/sta…

Lang Greene

Dwight Howard missed seven games total in his first seven seasons in the league. Tough to see the man become so prone to injuries

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

Also in the ECF Preview: hawkshoop.com/ecf-preview-wi… DeMarre Carroll has the best TS% among players still playing in the conference finals.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

In HawksHoop's Eastern Conference Finals Preview, we explore how the Hawks have plummeted in free throw differential in the playoffs.

Buddy Grizzard

At HawksHoop: Hawks will dominate the ECF and win in five: hawkshoop.com/ecf-preview-wi…

Steve Koonin

What a great game so far tonight. The Eastern conference final atmosphere @PhilipsArena is going to be insane. Who will be there?

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.

Lang Greene

Listen, I like this Clint Capela kid. At least, playoff Capela.

Lang Greene

James Harden all in his playmaker goody bag tonight

Last question of the night - what gif/emoji/image sums up your excitement for the Eastern Conference Finals??? #HawksChat

Lang Greene

Heard the collective groan from the Big Apple all the way down here in Atlanta. #NBADraftLottery

Jaryd Wilson

How impressed have you been with @DeMarre Carroll in this postseason? #HawksChat

Jason Walker

Single coverage on LeBron. Don't let him get everybody else going. #HawksChat twitter.com/AnaheimAmigos/…

Jason Walker

Tristan Thompson. Gotta limit the second chances for LeBron. #HawksChat twitter.com/ATLHawks/statu…

Jaryd Wilson

Outside of LeBron and Kyrie, which Cavs player is most important for Hawks D to focus on? #HawksChat

Jason Walker

That was an homage to the Old Buzz column on @sportingnews online in the 90's.

Jason Walker

(sniff) I hope so. (sniff) The end of the third quarter has never been the same. (HONK!) #HawksChat twitter.com/jlaneatl/statu…

Jason Walker

Hawks fans, scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being most sure, how confident do you feel in picking the Hawks to advance? #HawksChat

Jason Walker

Believe that it'll be tough to keep Carroll on LBJ too much because the Cavs will go small. #HawksChat

Jason Walker

I have the Hawks ability to control Tristan Thompson's Thousand Offensive Rebounds as a key matchup #HawksChat

Jaryd Wilson
