The Atlanta Hawks and music superstar Monica announced today she will be performing during halftime when the team brings back the very popular Swipe Right Night on April 6. This year the event is sponsored by Bud Light and takes place at the game against the Boston Celtics. That night fans can use the Tinder app inside the arena to gain access to special perks and meet up with matches in real time. Additionally, those who connect may get a courtside seat to the in-game concert by native Atlantan Monica, one of music’s reigning voices with more than 25 million records sold.

Fizdale procured a motivational tool – an actual tool – by bringing an ax into the locker room, having the players sign it and hoping that it will hold them together in hard times. But it seems more likely right now that a player will either chop down a locker room in frustration or someone will lose a finger.
“My thing to these guys is what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to chop down a big tree,” Fizdale said. “If you’re paying attention to if the tree is falling, you’re never going to get that tree down. We signed a covenant as a group, every guy. I said, ‘Hey, let’s make a commitment that no matter what happens that we stick together and we keep chopping this tree together.’ So the ax is just a symbol of us chopping this tree. Every day putting in the work with the right attitude. The right respect for what we’re trying to accomplish. And not let things linger, but keeping our eyes on the task of getting better.”
