DeMarre's bucket makes him the TWELFTH Hawk to score tonight. Our lead is 56-37.

Buddy Grizzard

My bad Jenkins not Korver... makes his presence known with a three.

Buddy Grizzard

Chicago rims got no love for Horford.

Buddy Grizzard

Carroll took advantage of McBuckets to get open for that baseline J

Buddy Grizzard

Big lineup in to start 3rd, Horford Antic (who just hit a three) Carroll, Korver and Schröder

Buddy Grizzard

Once again these minutes for Hawks reserves are coming against heavy minutes from opposing starters, all of whom have played 14-16 minutes.

Buddy Grizzard

Muscala has 2 PTS 3 REB 2 AST in 6 MIN; Payne 4 PTS 1 REB 6 MIN; Baze 2 PTS 2 REB 7 MIN; Schröder 2 PTS 3 REB 3 AST 14 MIN 0 TO 1-for-6 FG

Buddy Grizzard

In that piece said 11 Hawks are proven rotation players and 4 are question marks: Muscala, Schröder, Jenkins and Payne. So far this game...

Buddy Grizzard

Earlier today I wrote about shallow coverage of Hawks by national sports media hawkshoop.com/hawks-analysis… w/ heavy quotation of @Eisenberg43

Jaryd Wilson

Those @Pero Antic supporters we saw at opposing arenas? NOT a one-year wonder! We found some in Chicago http://t.co/ufJl0pimI8

Buddy Grizzard

Your plus-minus leader for the half? None other than @John Jenkins (plus-12) missed his only shot from the field but was 5-for-5 on FTs.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks shot 1-for-6 over the last 3:11 of the Half. Thirteen players have played between six and 15 minutes.

Jaryd Wilson

Kyle leads our scoring with 9 (yes, that's divisible by 3). First half stats: on.nba.com/1sWmW2M

Jaryd Wilson

Defense rules the half as we take a 42-32 lead into the break!

Jaryd Wilson

Derrick Rose in transition...nearly unstoppable. Chicago closing the half strong. Our lead is down to 10.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks with only one field goal in the last three minutes, letting the Bulls close the gap on a 7-2 run.

Buddy Grizzard

The Chicago Bulls have 24 points with 2:43 to play in the HALF.

Jaryd Wilson

Three first half triples for Kyle. Bulls fans who remember him doing that in this building be like... http://t.co/tp0ofoqgnh

Lang Greene

Daniel Orton waived by the Washington Wizards. Don't think he ever truly recovered from those knee issues basketballinsiders.com/wizards-waive-…

Buddy Grizzard

Muscala with a nice seal of the baseline on Mirotic.

Buddy Grizzard

Thabo in for the first time. Watch this guy.

Jaryd Wilson

Bucket by Al is his first to go with 5 boards in nine minutes.

Buddy Grizzard

Budenholzer is toying with my emotions playing Bazemore for four minutes.

Jaryd Wilson

Well it appears Tom Thibodeau is in midseason form. #Technical

Buddy Grizzard

But hey it's too bad our bench is shallow.

Buddy Grizzard

Can we pause for a moment and reflect upon Mike Budenholzer's defense?

Jaryd Wilson

Pero hits a three, and the Bulls want to talk just 33 seconds into the quarter.

Jaryd Wilson

Offensive rebounds: Us: 5 Them: 0

Jaryd Wilson

We're up 20-15 after a quarter. Seven birds on the board for us, led by Mike Scott's 5.

Buddy Grizzard

Also wish we would have seen more of that guy.

Jaryd Wilson

Elton Brand is EVERYWHERE!

Jaryd Wilson

Reminder: Tonight's preseason game against the Bulls is on @929TheGame. Unfortunately no TV for any of our preseason games.

Buddy Grizzard

Don't think I've seen Brand make a jumper since 2009.

Buddy Grizzard

Love Schröder and Scott starting. Bud continues to force feed minutes to his reserves in preseason.

Jaryd Wilson

A few instances of college teammates Al Horford & Joakim Noah guarding each other early. 9-7 Chicago at the first timeout.

Buddy Grizzard

Everything's short for Al.

Buddy Grizzard

Stacey King was giving the Hawks some props, saying it's a top-5 team in the east... then he mentioned coach Budenhowzer.

Jaryd Wilson

A couple of Creighton alums (Korver & McDermott) matched up on each other to start the game.

Jaryd Wilson

As usual, a huge ovation for Kyle upon being introduced here in Chicago.

Chris Vivlamore

NBA announces rule changes tweaking instant replay - including determining criteria for flagrant foul.

Steve Koonin

Today's response is amazing. Nov. 1 will be a true celebration of #ATL w/ @tip. Can't wait for the energy of opening night #ATLOpeningTIP

I'm invoking the mercy rule. The sixers hereby forfeit all 82 games to spare our eyes.

Kris Willis

I always thought if NBA shortened the game it would center on 40 minutes. Don't understand all the outrage

Kris Willis

I see a lot of quotes from Van Gundy in that article talking about Josh not shooting 3's. I don't see any from Josh

Kris Willis

Yeah good luck with that

Getting paid to think.. Go you!

Lang Greene

I don't care what level of ball you played ... everyone has that one "inferior" guy who could get off on them at will.

Lang Greene

You get hurt carrying travel bags? Done son. Nothing left but to cash those last checks and get ready for retirement

Lang Greene

Tough seeing Hall of Famers limp down the stretch to end their careers. Steve Nash just the latest victim added to the list.

As time goes on Isiah Thomas' legacy gets less and less respect. Dude was certified. One of my favorites ever.

Lang Greene

Open Court on NBA TV is easily my favorite hoops program right now. Guys who played the game talking shop. The stories. Memories. Etc.

Buddy Grizzard

I wouldn't be mad at C-Webb. He knows a hell of a lot more about basketball than Dominique.

Buddy Grizzard

The Lou Williams trade may have had to do with clearing cap room for a max offer to Greg Monroe.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks are possibly the deepest team in the NBA besides the Spurs.

Buddy Grizzard

LeBron takes credit for recruiting Larry Hughes, aka why he never won a title with Cleveland.

Jaryd Wilson

Lots of talking about the NBA's experimentation with 11-minute quarters. What do you think? Good idea? http://t.co/R51NiPNurK

Buddy Grizzard

Replay center not keeping it moving

Kent Bazemore

Now everyone is a Royals fan. They haven't been to playoffs in 29 years... #WhereYouComeFrom LoL

Buddy Grizzard

Pardon @Eisenberg43 what made you say Mack's defense is "above average for backup points?" Observation or stats? sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/15/wed…

Buddy Grizzard

Landon Donovan for USSF President 2018.

Buddy Grizzard

I'll say it again. European soccer, as typified by Klinsmann, is scared sh**less of MLS. When cap goes up guess where European players going

Buddy Grizzard

Comparison between NBA eras is a useless exercise anyway. Shortening the season by 7.45 games, which 11-minute quarters would do, helps NBA.

Buddy Grizzard

Agree with Randy Wittman that shortening games by 4 mins would hurt comparison between eras. But what's more important?

Shelvin Mack

Me and my vevey1800 playing a little football in Miami... #mackisland #shutdowncorner instagram.com/p/uMG6D5Ml-T/

Buddy Grizzard

It's time to face facts. Bradley is who he is at Roma or Toronto FC. He will never have the composure of a Landon Donovan.

Buddy Grizzard

It's possible too much was asked of Bradley in WC precisely because he played for Roma. Bradley has been unreliable in consecutive WC's.

Buddy Grizzard

If Klinsmann wants to keep #TeamUSA players in Europe maybe he should have spoken up about Arsenal passing on Bradley for Kim Kallstrom.

Buddy Grizzard

#TeamUSA held Belgium scoreless for 90 minutes and had chances. Germany scored one goal on a lucky bounce to Thomas Müller. Dominated how?

Buddy Grizzard

..."but getting dominated by eventual world champion Germany and Belgium in Brazil doesn't bode well for that hope." Wait, what?

Buddy Grizzard

Via @eric_adelson sports.yahoo.com/news/michael-b… "Klinsmann wants team to make World Cup semis in 2018...

Buddy Grizzard

Keep in mind that you can't get rid of Klinsmann without getting rid of Sunil Gulati. The two are joined at the hip.

Buddy Grizzard

Does anyone need any further convincing that Klinsmann is the wrong man to lead #TeamUSA?

Buddy Grizzard

Unless you're Klinsmann and your real interest lies in diverting talent to Europe.
