Who to praise for the Atlanta Hawks being an eight seed, who’s to blame

Two weeks ago, the New York Knicks took control of the eighth seed in the Eastern conference sending many Hawks fans into panic mode. This was short lived because by the time the Hawks won its next game, they took back the eighth seed and never looked back, finishing the season strong winning six of its last eight games. Many Hawks fans were advocates of the Hawks missing the playoffs...

Why the Atlanta Hawks made the playoffs

  In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. When examining why the Atlanta Hawks made the playoffs, this is the first thing that came to mind. It needs a little tweaking though. In the conference of dumpster fires, somebody has to finish eighth. That’s better. It’s a little harsh, but in many ways so was watching a lot of (L)Eastern conference basketball. That being...

Atlanta Hawks: It’s tanking time!

To call the Atlanta Hawks first season under coach Mike Budenholzer a roller coaster would be an understatement. The Hawks came out the gate hot, stabilizing themselves as an almost virtual lock for the three seed in a very weak Eastern Conference. Then the injury bug visited Atlanta and decided to stay in Atlanta. Al Horford went down, but players stepped up and Atlanta continued...

Atlanta Hawks: Streaking in all the wrong ways

  Since February 4th the Atlanta Hawks have decided to be consistent in their efforts, be it winning or losing, for better or for worse. These streaks include losing 14 of 15 with an 8 game losing stretch, followed by a 5 game win streak and now they’re currently in the midst of a 6 game losing effort. It’s kind of impressive in its own way but it’s mainly odd and mostly disconcerting...

Al Horford won’t rejoin Atlanta Hawks in the postseason

The Atlanta Hawks are the prototypical playoff team that gets into and hangs on in the tournament by a wing and a prayer. The news that Al Horford will miss the remainder of the year including postseason play is disastrous for a team that is forever stuck in limbo.

Al Horford makes it official: He will not be back for playoffs

This was expected when Atlanta Hawks big man Al Horford tore his pectoral muscle, he had to have surgery and was done for the season. But with the Hawks playing better than expected for rookie coach Mike Budenholzer — thanks to an All-Star year from Paul Millsap — Atlanta is going to be a playoff team (barring an utter collapse while the suddenly hot Knicks keep it going, the...

Hawks' Horford talks about injury, rehab

ATLANTA -- Speaking for the first time since he suffered a torn right pectoral muscle on Dec. 26, Hawks center Al Horford was in a good mood on Thursday, laughing at his own expense at the injury that has ended his season.
