What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Dejounte Murray, on the intensity of the Wednesday and Thursday practices:
“We would be in the film room, and Quin would be like, ‘Well, we’re just going to walk through some things’. And then the next thing you know, we’d be going up and down (cont.)” AM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Blazers had 9 offensive rebounds for 9 second-chance points.

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
I enjoyed this little observation from Quin Snyder on Dejounte Murray’s midrange game:
“They’re not long twos, either. He’s getting deep enough where they’re potshots for him. He’s unique in that sense.” – 11:20 PM
Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
Jimmy Butler on if he expects to play tomorrow against the Hawks: “I don’t even know how I’ll wake up in the morning.” #heatculture11:17 PM

Inspired Heat second half effort ends with 6th loss in 7 games, on Randle 3 with just over a second to go, 122-120 to Knicks. Heat can fall to 8th if loses to Hawks tomorrow in Miami. Randle 43, Butler 33, Herro 29. – 10:34 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
I firmly believe that Nate McMillan was good for Trae Young and John Collins and I feel the same way, if not more strongly, about how Quin Snyder will impact Onyeka Okongwu and Jalen Johnson. – 10:31 PM
AJ Griffin @whoisAG21
GO DJ!!! Congrats brother!!! 🔥 @Dejounte Murray10:30 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
A couple of things that Quin Snyder didn’t like:
Spacing vs. trap/blitz
Breakdowns that let Reddish get going late – 10:22 PM

How is Hawks billionaire Tony Ressler’s media campaign going?
“Ressler,” explains a typical comment under a Ressler interview with @Jeff Schultz of the Athletic, “is such a tool.” PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
In two games against Portland this season, Dejounte Murray averaged 40.5 points on .638 FG%, .769 3FG% and 1.000 FT%. He’s the first Hawk and only the second player in NBA history to average 40+ points on .600/.750/1.000 against the same team in the same season (min. 2 games). – 10:16 PM
Efficient dominance for Dejounte vs. the Blazers 🔥 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
“For the most part, we were solid.”

Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Hawks could pass Heat for 8th seed by winning next 2 in Miami over next 4 days. And Toronto has a good enough team to pass Miami. But… Still very hard to see Wizards or Bulls or Pacers knocking Heat out of play-in (so lower than 10). But at this rate, who knows? – 9:16 PM

It is my firm belief that the Blazers are better in the minutes when they have Damian Lillard on the court. – 9:15 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his bucket at the 5:08 mark of the third quarter, Dejounte Murray has poured in 30+ points for the sixth time this season and 14th time of his career. – 9:04 PM

Dejounte hit a midrange jumper then stared down the Blazers bench. Then he hit another middie… He’s got 31. – 9:04 PM

Dejounte Murray has 31 points with 5:00 left in 3Q and he’s drawn the assignment of guarding Lillard as well. That’s a lot for one game. – 9:03 PM

Impressive 1st quarter by the Atlanta Hawks. They lead 31-19 over the Blazers. The stat of the game is the following one:
13 assists for 13 field goals made. The ball movement at the highest level.

Hawks currently have JJ on Jerami Grant… so there you go. But he was whistled for a foul on trying to pick off a pass intended for Grant.
Hawks lead 25-16 w/ 2:50 left in 1Q. – 7:57 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Jalen Johnson is one of nine Hawks to play thus far, which could mean an off night from AJ Griffin, based upon what Quin Snyder said two days ago. – 7:55 PM

Jalen Johnson checks into the game after ending Tuesday’s as a DNP-CD. – 7:55 PM

The Hawks have converted any of them into points but five Blazers turnovers in the first six minutes is not a great start. – 7:54 PM

Uses Thybulle’s momentum against him reversing the play and using Capela’s screen PM

Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
6:28, 1Q Hawks force a Blazers timeout after a Trae Young alley oop to Clint Capela for a dunk. Hawks lead 13-7 and have held the Blazers to 3-9 overall shooting after forcing 4 turnovers, 3 in the last 90 seconds. – 7:50 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Feels like the Hawks should be ahead by more than 13-7 since it seems like the basketball group from Portland is trying to propel the ball from one player to another for the first time in their lives. – 7:48 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
I imagine the Blazers would absolutely love for the Hawks to double Jerami Grant – 7:46 PM
