HoopsHype Atlanta Hawks twitter
LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard (combined 18-of-55 from the floor) won't be this bad all series, but can't see them overcoming Memphis
Portland misses Wesley Matthews so much, on both sides of the floor. Underrated scorer and defender.
Great crowd & great playoff win. This is just the first. 7pm tip Wednesday so get there early & be loud. The nation heard our 6th man today!
Dwight Howard flame broiled Robin Lopez in the first round of the playoffs last season ... have to think Marc Gasol might flo-show too
"Good aggressiveness, good execution by Jeff (Teague)." - Coach Bud on Jeff scoring at the end
The Atlanta Hawks are now 4-0 all-time in playoff games in which DeMarre Carroll scores in double figures.
1-0 series lead, and we're like: http://t.co/EULDsMaeTz
Final: Hawks take Game 1 99-92
Both 1 vs. 8 matchups had same feel. Hawks and Warriors steamrolled early.Then had to survive late runs by Nets / Pelicans
Teague fouled and headed to the line with 11.8 remaining
Extreme defensive intensity there, capped by a typically awesome DeMarre hustle play.
Hustle rebound for DeMarre and he gets the timeout. Hawks going to survive this one
Wondering if this is Brooklyn's best shot or if they can turn this into a series
Hawks leading 97-92 with 26.5 remaining.
Joe Johnson with 17 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds but is 0-6 from three-point range and 6-17 from the field
Jeff Teague with the clutch runner
Lead is down to 4
Bud has Dennis Schröder at point to close out the game. Love the way he develops young talent. Front office, please stop blowing picks.
21 points for Kyle Korver today, 6-11 shooting
I understand the boos for Josh Smith whenever Smoove strolls into Philips Arena, but Joe Johnson kept the Hawks relevant for years.
Hawks up 91-83 with 2:54 remaining. Nets refusing to go away
Tim Tebow back.
Korver Kounter: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
I wonder how truly close Paul Millsap is to 100 percent. Just hasn't looked right.
How’s all that booing working out for you, ATL?
Hawks a half step too fast right now
Al has a dislocated right pinky and IS available to return, according to Hawks PR http://t.co/DH5GoJpDsI
Al Horford back in the huddle got us all like http://t.co/ocAXVOjLyj
VOLUME SHOOTER MIKE SCOTT
Looks like Al Horford might have dislocated a finger. Heading straight to the locker room
Nothing more automatic than Kyle Korver from the corner
Korver Kounter: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
Dennis Schroder with 11 points so far off the bench
Hawks carry a 74-62 lead into the fourth quarter. 15-2 run restored order after Brooklyn cut the lead to just 3
Ball movement for days!
Five straight points from Dennis. Hawks back up 70-56
UMLAUTY LAWTY LAWD
LUV U KAHL
Horford with the extra pass finds Korver in the corner for a three. Lead back up to 65-54. Timeout Brooklyn
Korver Kounter: 🔥 🔥 🔥
Teague steal leads to a DeMarre three. Lead back up to eight
Paul gets the switch with Joe Johnson and takes him to the rack and scores. Needed that
Hawks down to 43 percent shooting for the game. Are 5-17 from three-point range
Make it 3 and Coach Bud takes a timeout. Not the start to the second half that Atlanta was looking for
Just like that, the lead is down to five
Timeout coming for the Hawks
That last tweet sponsored by Larry “energy” Drew
Hawks starting sluggish - need that swarming energy
Teague knows that wasn’t a good possession even though he dropped a 22 footer
Bogdanovic getting the start for the Nets in the second half
Nets shot 65 percent in the second quarter (11-17)
