Atlanta Hawks News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
About Atlanta Hawks
Price for a Beer
3/25/15: The Brooklyn Nets' playoff hopes have taken a bit hit in recent weeks as the team has struggled with a poor 4-6 record in their last 10 games. Actually, that is about their season average, so they are really just playing as they have all season. Still, they can rally and try to catch Boston, who is only a game and a half ahead of them. They could also use some help from the Celtics and the Charlotte Hornets slumping. If nothing else, they are still playing important games this time of year, and that is better than many expected.
3/18/15: One of the unsung heroes of the Atlanta Hawks' tremendous season has been reserve big man Mike Scott (not on loan from Dunder Mifflin). He is a nice luxury to come off the bench and relieve starters Al Horford and Paul Millsap for about 15 minutes per game and contributes about seven points and four rebounds. Unfortunately, he will miss the next several weeks while he recovers from a broken toe. It will hurt depth for a few weeks, but it is not likely that anyone in the East can catch Atlanta for the number one overall seed before the playoffs, and hopefully Scott will return by then.
3/11/15: The Atlanta Hawks, as far as ownership is concerned, picked a proper time to turn into one of the best teams in the NBA. Considering that the L.A. Clippers were sold less than a year ago for over $2 billion and that the Hawks are finally getting some national recognition thanks to their 19 game winning streak, the value of the team has never been higher. The team is up for sale and recent reports say that Mark Rachesky is now in on the bidding. The current price is "north of $900 million". There is no way the Hawks will sell for what the Clippers sold for, but that is due to location. Still, nearly $1 billion is a pretty good return on investment for the current owners.
3/4/15: Regardless of what traditionalists in any sport may say, every sport evolves. Offenses get successful with new schemes and defenses catch up. Or vice versa. In Atlanta, they view their offense as an evolution to beat current defensive philosophies. Many current defenses are based upon the scheme devised and perfected by current Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau when he was an assistant in Boston. It overloads the strong side and removes options for penetrations, forcing bad shots from the offense. The Hawks, using the Spurs' blueprint, use a lot of motion to break down this type of defense. The result - mostly wins for the Hawks, which makes them very compelling in the upcoming playoffs.
2/25/15: One can pretty much etch in stone that the Atlanta Hawks are going to the playoffs this season, likely as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. They have not been as dynamic as on their 19 game winning streak - they are only 6-4 in their last 10 games, but they still have a commanding lead over second place Toronto. They earned a nice victory over Milwaukee on Sunday, with Paul Milsap leading the charge in the 97-86 win. Milwaukee is an underrated team that gets lost in the shuffle, but their 31 wins this season is proof that they are doing something right.
2/18/15: An interesting statistic that bodes well for the Hawks: the NBA Finals champ has had a winning percentage of .700 or more at the All Star break for each of the last seven years. In the 2014-15 season, only the Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors have a winning percentage that high. The Hawks have a lot of talent on their team, but no Grade-A superstar to lead them. They are playing team basketball, a concept that seems foreign to many organizations. There is still a long way to go until the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks certainly look like an Eastern contender right now.
2/11/15: Hats off to the Atlanta Hawks, whose 19 game winning streak was snapped last week. That incredible run put the Hawks in the driver's seat of the Southeast Division, and is really just a continuation of the grit they showed last season in the playoffs. In an unusual move, the NBA named the Hawks starting five as the NBA Player(s) of the Month for January. Atlanta has done a great job of emulating the San Antonio Spurs, which makes sense since their head coach came from that organization. And copying another franchise does not always work. Just ask the Orlando Magic, who are also trying to copy the Spurs, but have a 15 game losing streak and just fired their head coach, former Spurs assistant Jacques Vaughn.
2/5/15: Much like Parker Lewis two decades ago, the Atlanta Hawks can't lose. They recorded their 17th straight victory last week and found they have a new Twitter problem. The team has been adding "W" to their Twitter handle after each win. For example, after four straight wins, the handle would have been HaWWWWks. Now at 17, they have run out of character spaces that Twitter allows. But these are problems that good teams have. And as far as problems, go, it is a good problem to have. Fortunately for Minnesota, the Timberwolves will not have to worry about this type of issue.
1/28/15: The Atlanta Hawks winning streak kept on track last week and is now up to a remarkable 15 games. That is a franchise record for the Hawks and the team is enjoying the spoils that go along with it. They are in first place, not just in the Southeast Division, but in all of the Eastern Conference. There are still a lot games left to play, but the Hawks do not seem to have a weakness right now. They should make the playoffs with ease and are probably one of a few Eastern teams that can match up against whoever would come out of the West.
1/21/15: The Atlanta Hawks were expected to be a good team this season, but not many expected them to dominate the Eastern Conference as they have done. Through 40 games, or about half the season, they have the best record in the East at 32-8 and have won 11 straight and 25 of 27. While all the media attention in the conference has been about how the Cleveland Cavaliers cannot get right or how the New York Knicks keep losing, the Hawks keep on winning and look like a legitimate contender. That may not make the national media happy, but it is very real possibility.
5/11/12 The Atlanta Hawks fought hard to try and force a Game 7 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, but Kevin Garnett proved to be too much for the Hawks and they fell 83-80 in Game 6 to end their season. Trailing 81-79 late in the 4th quarter, Hawks center Al Horford missed a key free throw that would have made it possible for Atlanta to tie the game and force overtime. Instead, the Celtics survived the late rally and held on to win the series on their home floor at the TD Garden.

Atlanta Hawks Tickets - Season Info
The Atlanta Hawks started to regain confidence in 2007 after acquiring gifted center and power forward 6-foot-10 Al Horford of Florida Gators fame. The following year, Mike Bibby joined the roster while other guards Joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford, remained constant scoring threats. In 2010, a hard-working Hawks squad clinched their third consecutive playoff berth and are proving to be a perennial threat out of the East.

2011 Off Season
The Atlanta Hawks made a great run this past year and nearly made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. They were taken down by MVP Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. Led by Joe Johnson, Josh Smith, Jeff Teague, Al Horford and Kirk Hinrich look for the Hawks to come back strong next season. The Hawks only had one pick in the draft, late second round, and picked up Keith Benson. A center from Oakland University. Don't expect him to get much playing time due to their front court of Smith and Horford but definitely look for him in the future to get some good time during the season.
