HAWKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Hawks players not fans of the Cavs' celebrations in Game 2

The Atlanta Hawks couldn’t do anything to stop what the Cleveland Cavaliers threw their way during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Wednesday. Trailing 74-38 at the half, Atlanta saw Cleveland nail a ridiculous 17 three-pointers before intermission en route to breaking the single-game NBA record with 25. At the end of the night, the Hawks found themselves in a 2...

Hawks look for answers after getting embarrassed by Cavs

ATLANTA (AP) Thoroughly embarrassed by Cleveland's record-setting performance, the Atlanta Hawks spent part of Thursday watching film from their Game 2 debacle. Not the whole game, mind you. No need to relive that nightmare. ''We watched parts of the tape,'' coach Mike Budenholzer said Thursday, still sounding a bit shell-shocked. ''To watch all of it was probably not needed...

The Hawks know all too well: For the second straight year, Game 82 mattered a lot

For the second straight playoff season, the Atlanta Hawks are finding out how miserable an experience it is to face the Cleveland Cavaliers. David Blatt’s defense last year, Tyronn Lue’s offense this year – it doesn’t matter. An elite Kyle Korver last year, a mediocre version this year – it hasn’t made a dime’s worth of difference. A 60-win team or a 48-win team ...

Hawks players say Cavs' 3-point barrage was unprofessional

The Cleveland Cavaliers drained an unthinkable 25 threes—a new NBA record—in their blowout Game 2 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. The Cavs made 18 of those threes in the first two quarters—another NBA record—and held an insurmountable 36-point halftime lead. But instead of taking its foot off the gas, Cleveland continued to jack up outside...

Hawks left to pick up the pieces following Game 2 blowout

The Atlanta Hawks' season hangs in the balance following Game 2's blowout loss. There are lopsided losses and then there is what happened to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. Cleveland left very little to analyze after they delivered a 123-98 beatdown in Game 2. Don't let that 25 point margin of victory fool you. This game was never that close. The Hawks actually started well...

Atlanta Hawks “Crying Jordan” themselves as Cavs set NBA 3-point record

The Cleveland Cavaliers were hitting three-pointers like they were on fire in NBA Jam Wednesday night in Game 2 of their second-round matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. When the carnage was done, the Cavs sunk 25 three-point shots through what Ted Cruz would call a basketball ring, setting a new NBA record for three-pointers made in a game and winning 123-98. But at least the Hawks...

Mo Williams bounces ball off Mike Muscala’s face, Iman Shumpert drains three after catching it (video)

The Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday night in a route no better defined than a wacky play in the game’s fourth quarter. Long story short, Mo Williams went to make a pass to somebody not named Iman Shumpert, Mike Muscala’s face face happened to get in the way and Shumpert caught the ricochet NBA JAM style and drained the shot from deep. Again the perfect...

Hawks troll themselves using Crying Jordan meme after Cavs' barrage

To say it was a lopsided first half would be an understatement for the Atlanta Hawks. The Cavs rained threes from virtually everywhere before halftime Wednesday, nailing an NBA-record 18 treys on their way to a 74-38 cushion.The league could have canceled the second half after that kind of performance. It looks like the Hawks' Twitter account also knew it was over.It looks like the...

Hawks get blown out after a record 3-point shooting night from the Cavaliers, 123-98

It's hard to beat a team when they're that hot. The Atlanta Hawks fell to a scorching hot Cleveland Cavaliers team, who had the greatest display of 3-point shooting in an NBA game, by a final score of 123-98. The game got off to a seemingly good start for the Hawks. There was a clear emphasis on getting Kyle Korver shots, who had two quick ones, knocking down one early. The Hawks...

Hawks-Celtics is a fun series, but Mike Budenholzer needs to win it

The loser of the Boston Celtics-Atlanta Hawks first-round series was always going to face an unpleasant offseason, but Mike Budenholzer is now in a position where failure could sting even more than previously imagined. Playoff series acquire a given appearance on paper, but as soon as Game 1 unfolds, the context can — and often does — shift. The most relevant shift in Celtics...

Celtics’ Marcus Smart had a flop for the ages in Game 3 vs Hawks

So much so that opposing college fan bases used to collectively flop to mock him when he played at Oklahoma State: Now, Smart’s taking his flopping to new levels, at the highest of basketball levels: The NBA Playoffs. In the fourth quarter of Celtics-Hawks Game 3 on Friday night at TD Garden, Smart barely made contact with Atlanta’s...

Marcus Smart flops ridiculously in win over Hawks

The Boston Celtics beat the Atlanta Hawks in game three on Friday night to pull to within 2-1 in the series. Throughout the game the Celtics played with a lot of heart and effort but this flop by Smart is ridiculous….. Either Kyle Korver has superhuman strength or Marcus Smart just enjoys trying to injure himself.

The Atlanta Hawks' Defensive Approach Has Boston On Its Heels

As the series shifts to Boston with the Celtics down 0-2, it's hard for anyone in green to be optimistic. This series has gone from bad to worse, as a tough Game 1 loss quickly became the loss of two key players and one of the worst performances of the year in Game 2. For a team that has been mostly healthy this season, it seems as if the luck of the Irish is not on their side this...
