Injury bug is hitting us...ugh.

But I can't lie, I like the harris/teague backcourt ALOT better than the lou/teague one.

I meant to mention this the last game but Ivan Johnson vs Reggie Evans is a joy to watch.

Not that I WANT it to happen, but is there a reason that the nets don't just go through Lopez or Blatche? Over and over and over again. We can't guard either of them.

I honestly think we have an advantage with Williams on the court. Dude is just lazy getting back.

The refs decided to be the stars of this game...which plays right into Brooklyns hands.

How did brooklyn shoot 38 free throws while the hawks shot 14? Can we blame the refs on that?

I'm proud of our players, it's hard to win games where it's a 2 on 1 handicap. Tonight we had to play against the Nets and the Refs. Any Nets fan who thinks otherwise an idiot. With Al and Lou we win. I hope to god that we play the Nets in the first round.

2 examples of the refs bsing late: When Josh posterized Lopez late it should've been an and one, and when Deron was dribbling on the nets' final possession with 11 seconds left the refs got Teague for just looking at him and put Deron on the line for the finishing FTs

Josh Smith shot you guys out of the game in the final few minutes. You were so much better the other night without him.

Agreed, it's time to part ways with Mr. Smith

You mean we were a better team with Horford and Lou then without out them and the refs hating Zaza? Wow! josh took 2 bad shots in the forth. He didn't shoot us out the game. The refs called like 6 fouls on the Hawks in the first 3 minutes of the quarter which took away our tradition game. That said Josh didn't really do much of anything last night. But he wasn't the cause of the loss or if we had won, the win.

Joshua put up like 3 str8 three pointers at one point and had way too many jumpers outside the paint. He shot 25% in the last 8 minutes as the deficit grew and grew. The first 3 quarters h had only seven shot attempts and we were tied. He tried to take over in the 4th qtr and it hurt our momentum as he went 2/8 from the field with 3 turnovers. Josh = rally killer. Even impartial fans of the other team can see it.

Okay dude. I was watching a game in an alternative reality where Josh left the game with the score tied, came back in when we were down 3, we cut it to 1 and he never took another shot after that. He took 4 shots in the paint and 4 junpers(one shot clock running down after zazas shot was blocked to half court) hit one jumper, missed another and took two bad threes that Teague for some reason kept teeing him up for. Like I said, 2 bad shots is not why we lost that game. But whatever...

any way to this game...so Larry Drew after talking about needing to shake things up and finds something that "works" finally finds the Teague/Harris chemistry being great and dominating so of course you break it up.

The hawks need to be out of this zone.

And they have to stop running this post up josh play where the other players on the court run to the other side and watch. That's way too Woodsonesque.

Just saw this on the WT. Sorry Hawks fans, it is really hard to cope with a leader on a good basketball team. Hopefully Lou will come back stronger than ever. Regards and good luck

That's not a ankle tweak....thats a bad sprain. Now Harris is out. Back to Morrow in the rotation?
