“It feels good,” Korver said of the win. “That is a really good team. That’s a really dangerous team. They can get hot. They can get cold. They can get really hot all in the same game. They are really hard to prepare for. We knew we had to play a good 48-minute game to beat them.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Korver will be at the All-Star game next month in February. He has agreed to take part in the 3-point shooting contest. However, there is a chance he could be in New York for more of the festivities. Several Eastern Conference coaches have said over the past two weeks that Korver will be among the Hawks they include on their All-Star reserve ballot. The notion is a surprise to Korver. “I stopped trying to prove everybody wrong a long time ago. It wasn’t good motivation for me. It takes you on an emotional roller coaster if you play that game. But I love basketball. I love team basketball. I love playing hard. I love all the aspects of the game, not just shooting but passing and defense. I feel like that’s what we do here. We do all of it and we do it as a team. I don’t feel like I’m a superstar by any means, but I feel like I’m a great piece. I feel like I’m in a really good situation.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Once again, Korver captured the attention of the fans and media with another dunk – the first time in his career he has done so in back-to-back games. He was looking to downplay the dunk after the game, saying he would “go glass” with a simple layup next time. Korver joked he hoped not to see the dunk on SportsCenter again, claiming it would be the two worst dunk highlights in history. The comment caused Millsap to burst into laughter two lockers down. Elton Brand, again, claimed he had no $100 bet with Korver on whether the guard would dunk before the center hit a 3-pointer. No payout. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
