Sorry to get on late. Busy night.
Another packed house at Philips….
December 9th, 20098:01 pm
Case in point…
We should be up by like 10 more points
December 9th, 20098:02 pm
good pt niremetal…its not that should limit their 3 pt attempts but they need to take smart 3s…not 25-30 footers
second chance points – hawks 10, bulls 2
What a treat to watch a Hawks game from Philips and NOT to have to listen to “Nique’s drivel.
You know I’m just messing with you, O’Brien
December 9th, 20098:05 pm
Marvin with that duckbutt D
Its all good nire. Although if JJ and Crawford decide to only take 1 3pt per game, I would be okay with that. Because they only make 3 out of every 10. They need to drive the ball nmore
Wow…Rose got the Kobe call on that one. Marvin was just moving his feet, Rose initiated the contact, but Rose got the call.
December 9th, 20098:06 pm
STOP BALL HOGGIN JOE DAMNNNNNNN
December 9th, 20098:08 pm
nice move by j craw! even better move by rose who is just KILLIN our D with the penetration smh…
A lineup with JJ at PF? Really?
Mo is just pathetic. All he does is foul.
Jamal is a cold-blooded assasin, man! He needs more minutes!
December 9th, 20098:09 pm
EVANS IS A CLOWN… a guaranteed foul… overly aggressive for no reason.
WOW…Teague-Bibby-Crawford-Mo-JJ. My goodness…
what kinda lineup
LOL now hes playin center lmao
December 9th, 20098:10 pm
Wheres the foul
December 9th, 20098:11 pm
Another superstar call for Rose.
Joe just had to have the last shot
December 9th, 20098:12 pm
D. Rose is the fastest player I’ve ever seen…cant think of anybody this quick since maybe Kevin Johnson
December 9th, 20098:13 pm
Good 1st half by the Hawks. When Joe and Jamal has it going, we can be a very dangerous team….
December 9th, 20098:14 pm
now lets put em away in the 2nd half
Hey O’Brien, you do realize that our selfish and inefficient duo of Crawford and JJ are shooting 12 of 23 with 28 points, half of our total…and that we’re winning by 15?
It’s not as simple as you think it is, man. There’s a reason the overwhelming majority of teams in league history have had perimeter-oriented offense.
December 9th, 20098:15 pm
December 9th, 20098:19 pm
Warning: Stat tangent.
Also, O’Brien – JJ has been more efficient shooting 3s (1.08 points per attempt last year) than he has shooting 2s (0.94) during most of his career. The most efficient shot in the game is the corner 3; the least efficient is the mid-range jumper. As I said, it’s not as cut and dry as you make it out to be. Yeah, JJ and Crawford have been struggling from deep recently. But do you really think they won’t pull out of it?
fire mark richt!
December 9th, 20098:21 pm
I dread going into another year with the master underachiever at the helms. I dont know why he did not blame UGA IV for his sorry season!
December 9th, 20098:22 pm
Rose is quick, but Lawson is much quicker. He’s easily the quickest in the NBA.
December 9th, 20098:23 pm
Good game so far. Bibby looks like he is still hurting. His defense is always terrible but he is missing open jumpers. I like that Mo plays hard but dude is terrible most of the time.
December 9th, 20098:24 pm
Yeah, Stats can be misleading.
I’m sure they’ll pull out of it. And the best way to pull out of it is to shoot their way out of it lol.
Maybe they just need to improve their 3 pt shot selection.
That being said, I look forward to the bench finishing the game.
December 9th, 20098:28 pm
Lets do what the Dawgs dont. Lets win.
December 9th, 20098:29 pm
This game is just a scrimmage for the hawks. Chicago knows it!
December 9th, 20098:30 pm
Gee, I wonder why Aaron Gray isn’t getting any time. Is he hurt?
December 9th, 20098:31 pm
no wabe…i have league pass and I saw the Nuggets vs. Bulls games and D.Rose outran Lawson every time down the court. Rose paces himself a lot though so thats why he might appear to be slower
bibby’s limping pretty good.
December 9th, 20098:35 pm
lol @ “fire mark richt”…this was a rebuilding season for my dawgs by the way. we werent expected to the national bcs champs
Yeah…we should ice Bibby for the rest of the night. Let him rest it as long as we have them at arm’s length.
I do not argue with history or coaches or the fact Jamal and JJ are having good games. I argue that we do not pass enough to the post players on our team and utilize their potential. Not this game but any game in general. My argument for this particular set of players is there is an opportunity for better balance.
In this game the big’s are passing better that the guards. With few turn overs.
One huge plus in this game – the guards are attacking the basket – the reason they are playing so much better.
December 9th, 20098:36 pm
Hawks carving up Chicago on ESPN! Makes up for that Orlando fiasco!
December 9th, 20098:37 pm
not really…cause the bulls are a below .500 team. this is to be expected
December 9th, 20098:39 pm
Haha Bibby was like I’m not gonna get crossed up I’m just gonna foul
get bibby off the court!
Bibby should not be playing.
Isn’t it amazing what the Hawks can accomplish, especially when our bench players are allowed to contribute and the team is allowed to run, attack the basket, pass the ball and not rely on 3pt shooting?
December 9th, 20098:40 pm
Yeah, I know KevinA. You think that guards should be banned from shooting and that any guard who misses a 3 should be executed. We get it.
Put Teague in
December 9th, 20098:42 pm
Bibby seems to limping slightly. And the Hawks are up by 26.
Why is he still in the game? I dont see the Bulls making a run, so why not bring Teague in?
December 9th, 20098:43 pm
Bibby hobbling around and still in the game????? Wtf?
