Heck of a start to the season for the Cavs, who have knocked off Atlanta, Denver and now the Clippers in the first week of the regular season. Hasn’t taken long for Evan Mobley to make an impact in Cleveland. – 12:46 AM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Brandon Ingram had two chances to put the Pelicans ahead late. He missed both shots. Badly.
“I could’ve got a better shot.”
Those miscues, New Orleans’ no-center lineup and more. New 3 points. nola.com/sports/pelican…12:29 AM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Things are improving for the Pelicans and as Willie Green said they’ll win these games later. But I explain why tonight was still a wasted performance against a good team.

Chris Dempsey @chrisadempsey
Ghost screens are one of my favorite actions in basketball. The success rate is so high as the defense almost always hesitates anticipating a screen. But the Hawks tonight? They played this perfectly, not fooled at all, and forcing a miss when they had to have it vs. the Pelicans pic.twitter.com/ENWXCLhh2Y11:51 PM

#Astros snap a 5-game home losing streak in the #WorldSeries with the 7-2 win in game 2 tonight. Friday night’s game 3 is in Atlanta w/ Luis Garcia starting. (The Astros last home win in the World Series as we discussed on #TheATeam today was the 13-12 game 5 win in 2017 vs LAD) – 11:24 PM

I asked Trae Young about not receiving many foul calls when he drives to the rim so far this season.

Brandon Ingram mentioned regretting his last two shots of the game.
Here was the first over Clint Capela with 1:11 left in the 4th quarter.
BI: “I could’ve got downhill, but I settled for a jumper.” pic.twitter.com/jwJfkucbQ711:09 PM

Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Brandon Ingram on his energy defensively so far this season: “I have to set the example. … That’s the emphasis for me. It just shows how much I care about the team and care about getting better. … If I do it it will trickle down to everybody else.” – 10:59 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Brandon Ingram said there were two instances where he should have gotten a better look late:
1. The transition 3 he shot on Capela where he thought he could’ve gotten to the rim.
2. The last shot on Hunter, felt he could’ve had a better look there. – 10:58 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Brandon Ingram on having Devonte Graham as a teammate: “He’s been very, very solid for us. That’s something we need. We need him to penetrate the defense and kick it out. It’s important for him to bring that every night.” – 10:58 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Brandon Ingram on having the ball in his hands late: “That’s what you practice and dream for. You can be on the good side or the bad side. Being on the bad side builds character. … I’ll look back and see where I can have the team in a better position.” – 10:57 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
At least the Pelicans aren’t the Lakers – 10:56 PM

Trae Young has hit 20 of 34 shots between 5 and 19 feet this season (58.8 percent). – 10:56 PM

Brandon Ingram relishes game-winning situations and shows the right approach.
“That’s what you practice and dream for. You can be on the good side or the bad side. The bad side builds character.” – 10:56 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Brandon Ingram says that he needs to get a better shot, preferably at the rim, the next time he’s in a situation similar to the possession he came up empty against De’Andre Hunter.
BI also regrets settling for a jumper against Capela. – 10:54 PM

Rookie Herb Jones’ vet answer when asked about his offense: “I’m always confident on the offensive end, but there are so many guys out there that can score the ball a lot better than I can right now. I know my role. I’m not going to get outside of what I need to do for the team.” – 10:52 PM

Devonte Graham on his WTF shot-making: “I definitely don’t practice shots like that. (The team) was joking saying I need to shoot more like that, because they’re going in so far.” – 10:36 PM

With 21 offensive rebounds tonight, Atlanta recorded their most since pulling down 23 on 1/20/21 vs. Detroit. – 10:28 PM

Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Willie on Devonte Graham’s play tonight: “He is getting more comfortable. He takes and makes tough, big shots. We’re going to continue to put the ball in his hands. … I think Devonte is coming along well right now.” – 10:23 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Willie on the confidence of the Pelicans’ team right now: “We’re getting better and better. This is growth. … We want teams to leave this arena and not want to play against us (again). … No moral victories for us, though. We’re all disappointed we didn’t win this game.” – 10:22 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Willie on Herb picking up Trae Young full court: “He’s a big wing, physical. With Young, we wanted to put size on him to contest his shots. … I thought Herb the rest of the guys did a great job of making it tough on him.” – 10:20 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Willie Green says the team talked about rebounding in huddles, during halftime and in other moments, but they just couldn’t keep the Hawks off the glass.
21 offensive rebounds led to 19 2nd chance points for the Hawks – 10:19 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Willie Green on the rebounding discrepancy: “Give credit to the Hawks, that’s what they do. … They went in and just crashed. We have to be better, and the guys know it.” – 10:18 PM

Hawks had 21 offensive boards tonight. Oof. – 10:05 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
It’s sort of fitting that the Hawks won an ugly, somewhat unsatisfying game when Delon Wright turned the game around doing a lot of unglamorous effort stuff. – 10:04 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
FINAL: Hawks 102, Pelicans 99.
New Orleans drops to 1-4.
Pels once again played hard and gave themselves a chance, but two big misses by Ingram late kept them from propelling on top in crunch time.
Also, Hawks dominated the offensive glass. – 10:04 PM

Hawks win a nailbiter in New Orleans, 102-99. They trailed by 16 early and had a 7-point lead entering the 4th.
John Collins’ putback gave ATL a 100-98 lead with 55.3 seconds to play. Led by 1 after a Pelicans FT and got one more key stop.
Trae Young: 31 pts, 7 ast – 10:02 PM

Rookie coach mistake by Willie Green here leaving Herb Jones in. And great recognition by Collins to just leave him and back up Hunter, who had Ingram pretty well contained anyway pic.twitter.com/Q7HutLy0uV10:01 PM

Even without Zion this loss is going to feel like an absolute waste – 10:01 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Ingram forces the tough jumper over Hunter, resulting in an airball, and then Trey Murphy gets hands on the offensive rebound, but can’t corral it.
Welp, that should do it. 1.5 seconds left and it’s the Hawks’ ball. – 9:59 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Brandon Ingram forces up a tough shot and the Hawks get possession with 1.5 to go. Rough possession all around. Hawks sent multiple guys at Ingram to possibly seal the game. – 9:59 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
BI goes up with a really tough shot and airballs it. Ball goes out on Trey Murphy.
Hawks get it back with 1.5 seconds left. – 9:59 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
De’Andre Hunter on Brandon Ingram … Ingram misses the jumper.

Hawks up 100-99.
Pelicans ball. 8.5 to go.
Who gets the shot? – 9:57 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Trae Young misses the stepback against Brandon Ingram and New Orleans will have a chance to win after the timeout. Currently the Hawks have the 100-99 advantage with 8.5 seconds remaining. – 9:57 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
#Pelicans can’t secure defensive rebound in huge spot, Collins grabs it and Naji fouls him (looked like the correct call). A little break for Pels that shot clock is reset to 14 with 28 on game clock. Under the old rules this would be dicey with 24 on shot clock – 9:56 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Trae Young was also reaching at his left ankle while going to the bench after that last possession. Something to keep an eye on. – 9:55 PM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Pretty interesting move from Willie there. Subbed Naji in for JV in between free throws. Pelicans switched everything on that possession. – 9:54 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Herb Jones splits his first career free throws.
Hawks up 100-99 with 50.7 left. – 9:53 PM

I’m the crankiest, balding asshole you know.
And I’m telling you, these Pelicans games are fun to watch. – 9:53 PM

Pelicans forced Trae Young to miss the three, but John Collins is there to slam home the Hawks’ 20th offensive rebound.
New Orleans trails 100-98 with 55.3 seconds remaining.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker clearly frustrated as he went to the bench after that timeout. His shot just isn’t falling tonight (3/14).
Zion Williamson just walked over to him on the bench, sat down and gave him a pep talk. – 9:47 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
NAW came off the court really frustrated after that last miss and Zion came over to talk to him on the bench.
NAW is 3-14 from the field, 0-7 on 3s. – 9:46 PM

Pelicans going with the starters here for the final 4:57.
Bench has a season-high 28 points. – 9:43 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
#Pelicans coaches were yelling after a defensive rebound off Young miss to push the ball, as Young lagged back complaining about no foul. There have been a lot more chances than usual across NBA for 5-on-4s due to indignant reactions to lack of whistle – 9:43 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Said it before, I’ll say it again: Devonte’ Graham is a GREAT tough shot-maker.
Huge 3 by him puts the Pelicans ahead 92-89. – 9:40 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Devonte Graham had nowhere to go and one-handed that 3 – nothing but net.
Even he had to smile after that one. – 9:40 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Pelicans are on a 12-3 run to start the fourth quarter.
They lead the Hawks, 89-87, with 7:34 to play. – 9:37 PM

This has been by far the best game #Pelicans have played in so far this season, in both tightness of the score and quality of play – 9:32 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
The Pelicans do a lot of little stuff that will help them win games whenever Zion comes back.
It’s just tough with this roster, going against opponents’ full strength rosters. – 9:31 PM

Jaxson Hayes nails two free throws and the Pelicans have tied their season-high with 26 points from the bench – 9:26 PM

Hawks have opened up an 84-77 lead after three quarters. – 9:21 PM

The Hawks are up to 16 offensive rebounds heading into the 4th quarter. Pels have to do a better job grabbing those defensive boards. – 9:21 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
After giving up 21 and then 15 offensive rebounds to the Pelicans over the past two games, only 5 first half offensive boards for the Bucks tonight.

Ya know what’s cool
The Pelicans don’t have to worry about their starting center not being able to make free throws – 8:41 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
He’s not always in the right place at the right time, but Brandon Ingram’s effort on defense is so much better this year.
He mentioned it as an emphasis coming into the year and he’s backed it up. – 8:32 PM

Random fact: Hawks starting center Clint Capela is only 1/5 on free throws this season. #Pelicans starting center Jonas Valanciunas is 22/22 – 8:31 PM

Great find by Brandon Ingram in transition, AFTER coming up with a steal. He saw Reddish leaning and hit Murphy in the corner for a three.
BI is consistently making winning plays outside of his scoring. – 8:30 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Garrett Temple (sprained left ankle) will be out for the rest of the night, per the Pelicans – 8:24 PM

Brandon Ingram is invested on the defensive end. – 8:17 PM

Brandon Ingram missed the shot. BUT he was the first Pelican down underneath the rim on the other end and ripped the ball out of John Collins’ hands.
That didn’t happen last season. – 8:17 PM

Despite the last few empty possessions, impressive first quarter by the Pelicans. They lead the Hawks 33-19.
Brandon Ingram set the tone early with 8 points, but there were contributions up and down the roster. – 8:11 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Pels went Kira-Trey-NAW-BI-Naji for that last possession of the 1Q.
It turned into a shot-clock violation.
Still – Pelicans play one of their best quarters of the young season and take a 33-19 lead into the 2Q. – 8:11 PM

At age 23 years, 38 days, Young is the second-youngest player in Hawks history to reach 5,000 (John Drew, 23y/33d). The five youngest are Drew, Young, Josh Smith (23y/100d), Bob Pettit (24y/86d) and Marvin Williams (24y/290d). – 7:55 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his fourth point tonight, Trae Young has 5,000 points for his career in his 208th game, becoming the fastest player in Hawks franchise history to reach that total. The five fastest are Young, Pettit (212), Pete Maravich (218), Joe Johnson (227) and Dominique Wilkins (230). – 7:55 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
These Pelicans have a much better give-a-shit rating to start games than at any point last season. – 7:54 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Great defense by Nickeil right there. John Collins had the mismatch, but NAW picked up the charge.
Collins complaining, but NAW’s nose already stuffed with a tissue. (Replay confirms contact) – 7:53 PM
Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
John Collins the least respected 100 million dollar player in the league – 7:53 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
More early foul trouble for John Collins tonight. He’s got two in his first three minutes. – 7:53 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
John Collins has once again got into early foul trouble. He’s on the bench four minutes into the game. – 7:52 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Two quick fouls for Herb Jonas and John Collins. Both have to take an early seat. – 7:52 PM
Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Hawks getting everybody involved early – everyone has missed a shot – 7:52 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Herbert Jones started the game matched up with Trae Young and was pressuring him all over the floor. Unfortunately for Jones he picked up a foul on a Young drive, then a second on a fast-break charge. Jones also swished a 3 in an action-packed few minutes. Temple subs in for him – 7:51 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Like the aggressiveness from Herb Jones on offense, but not with a foul already. If part of the Pels’ gameplan was use Herb on Trae for 94 feet, picking up 2 fouls early doesn’t help things. – 7:50 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Brandon Ingram is cooking right now – 7:50 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
How is Nets-Heat not the ESPN game? (He asks knowing the idea was Trae vs Zion)
But still! – 7:50 PM
Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
Love that the Hawks are getting all these teams hyped to beat them – excellent way to get resilient – 7:50 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Pelicans gonna be in national TV a bunch solely because of Herb Jones – 7:49 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Herb Jones just splashed his first career 3-pointer!
(Nice dime BI!) – 7:49 PM
Jake Madison @NOLAJake
Oh man if Brandon Ingram is gonna make that shot with that defense on him… – 7:48 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Going to be something to watch: Brandon Ingram going up against De’Andre Hunter. So far BI has a three and now an And-1 jumper against the Hawk.
Pelicans grab early 9-2 lead, and it looks like Trae Young is in for a long night — Herb Jones is chasing him around! – 7:48 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
Herb Jones picking up Trae Young for 94 feet? – 7:47 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
Pels have Herb Jones pressuring Trae Young full court to start the game – 7:46 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Nice screen by Brandon Ingram gets Devonte’ Graham a look from deep, nothing but bottom.
And that’s how we begin. – 7:46 PM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Herb Jones starts the game on Trae Young. Picking him up full court. – 7:46 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Herb Jones just picked up Trae Young full court.
This should be fun. – 7:46 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
The small sample size of early season games means I put little stock into things that could just be anomalies.
That said, it will be interesting to see the Wizards play the Celtics and Hawks twice over the next four games as a more extended litmus test. – 7:40 PM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
Watching Hawks-Grizzlies on ESPN?
Wondering why Trae Young isn’t getting as many foul calls?

Willie Green on Herb Jones’ versatility: “Herb is a guy that can play multiple positions. I think at some point in the season, we’ll go small, and he’ll be at the 5, 4 positions. We’re working with him on those things in practice with him.” – 6:08 PM
