Hawks-Sixers

Greetings, all-

We’ve got a pretty good test for a number of reasons.

You’d have to think this is a game the Hawks should win, particularly if they’re torqued off about how they finished last night. The Hawks are a better team than Philly, plus the Sixers are missing point guard Lou Williams. Philly has lost eight of 10.

One thing to watch will be how the Hawks respond from the patterns of their second-half debacle, particularly how well they move the ball in the half court.

On to the game.

2nd!

I would really be worried if Hawks lose again tonight. Really worried.

Woody might have lost this team. If he can’t draw up effective plays for a team he has coached for five years, if he can’t reign in an out of control JJ hell bent on getting a max contract, Woody might have lost this team. And if that is the case, we all see why he has not been extended yet. The next two games are really crucial for Hawks psyche. Hawks cannot afford multiple losing streaks. They just need to share and move the damn ball!

Big Ray,

You crazy, man!

Good God….Bibby is on fire. This is one of those moments that you don’t need or want to hear the name Teague….right?

i wonder if bibby does his best shooting when he’s stepping into his shot as he has been.

Clyde ,

I saw your sly jibe on the last blog. You ask me how many points Horford had last night, I ask YOU how many times he got to shoot the ball. The man got three shot attempts. Show me a guy who can score 15-20 points off of that, and I’ll show you a guy who is getting the ball enough and getting to the line. Which would mean more than three shot attempts. Don’t try to be slick, man. And screw Alabama…. :)

Good shot contest by Teague…made Kopono pass it away.

Heh…yeah, he’s already equaled the number of shot attempts he got last night, that’s why….lol

Josh isn’t giving up on the play, which is good, but he needs to finish strong against Dalembert…can’t give that long-armed fool a chance to block a soft shot. Dunk on him!

Is everybody still in a turkey coma? It’s quiet here….

Josh making Dalembert work, but he’s still missing free throws…

Teague got some good minutes here in the 2nd quarter.

Hopefully he’ll see the floor again…

Wabe ,

We could use him. He’s quick, energetic, and has no issues with getting to the basket whenever the opportunity presents itself. And his defense isn’t any worse than anybody else’s.

You might have a better chance at find Waldo or Carmen San Diego than you do Marvin.

Thing is, the Sixers don’t even really look all that good, they’re just athletic. Which tells you just how bad we’re playing.

Just imagine Ty Lawson or Brandon Jennings slipped to 19 and we drafted them. You would never be hearing their name cause they would be getting 8 minutes a game. If Lawson can get 20 minutes a game backing up Billups you would think we could get 15-18 minutes a game for teague

Nice move by Marvin. Will it be his only one of the night?

I wish Marvin had the ability to get a shot up in traffic without getting blocked

That’s not unreasonable, I think. But, that’s just what we think, lol…

Man, if it wasn’t for Big Al, Josh, and Bibby….I’d think no Hawks wanted to win this game.

Great job by Bibby to fight Dalembert for that rebound, forcing him into a traveling violation.

Damn, Marvin doesn’t even know where he is….his azz is gonna end up on the back of a milk carton any second now….

Big Ray…its so strange. I have never seen a guy his size and athletism get blocked as much as Marvin does

nothing new here. the hawks have one of the worst, unimaginative half court offenses in the league. need to run more plays for marvin. horford has been mia the last two games.

what the hell happened to the defense. philly getting easy dunks and layups only tell me the hawks are lacking focus and desire. they need to get on it.

josh smith’s talent is to tantalizing. he teases us with small stretches of brilliance. if he could do it more consistently he’s easily one of the top ten players in the league.

teague has looked good in limited minutes.

bibby has shot the ball well early. but once he starts missing like he has been he has nothing else to go to. besides being a defensive liability.

Wow! No look pass from Bibby to Josh. Glad those two came to play or we wouldn’t have anything going on at either end of the floor.
