  1. Wow, what a game... Trae's most impressive stat for me tonight was a 4 assist:turnover ratio. When he is locked in and not making lazy TOs, we're so dangerous. BOGI BOGI BOGI!!! To add to the first point, when Bogi is playing like this, it opens up Trae's game so much. The past 10 games of Bogi is why I was pumped when we signed him despite the aggressive contract Capela is such an anchor for this team... the guy is worth more than what he's getting paid right now and I think even when he gets praise we underestimate his value. Half a season of Capela and my PTSD from wat

  2. I want everyone to give their props to Brandon Goodwin today. 17 points, 8 assists, and 5 rebounds. Just a month a go we were all wanting him to get waived, and now he stepped up big time for us. I love it.

  9. First of all, his Pacer and Blazer teams never lost a series they were favored to win. Taking low-talent rosters to the playoffs then losing to the more talented team shouldn't be seen as big as a negative as it apparently is. Were folks expecting a lOladipo-led Pacers team to oust the Lebron-led Cavaliers? That they took them to 7 games should be seen as a positive, not a negative. Was a team "led" by injured-lOladipo and injured-Sabonis supposed to advance in the playoffs last year? What is this sliding scale his accomplishments are being judged on? The mental gymnastics Pacer

  11. I have no poster on ignore. I do not plan to put any one on ignore. Do I agree with all posters all the time? No. Surely you jest. If we all agree all the time, what is there left to say? Sometimes, when two Squawk members go at each other, I agree with both of them! How can this be? They both are trying to make a point about something and not all their thoughts center on the exact same thing, thus, both can be right about what they are saying. What I don't like and I believe shouldn't happen: Personal name calling. Not called for any where and especially not here among

  12. Bogi was recovering from covid apparently at the start of the season. It is why he looked so bad. Once he recovered from his knee injury it gave him more time to recover from covid. He has been lights out since then. THIS is the guy we signed away from the Kings. Big win today with all those injured Hawks.

  13. What a great come from behind win. Mrs. Sothron and I only are rooting on different sides when the Bulls and Hawks play. It was tough for her to see Lavine look like Jordan 2.0 in the game especially in the first half and still lose by 12 points. I'm sure the media will spin it that the two Bulls All Stars torched the Hawks and not mention a certain player's 42/9/8 game and ya know who actually won the game.

  14. Trae was a superstar tonight. He got his, but also depended on his teammates tonight. His defense was great. Gallo was great. Capella was great. Bogi and Kevin did just enough. Nate is a great coach. This was one of the better wins. We really need to get this next game against Charolette.

  16. It's time to put some distance between ourselves and the other teams for the fourth seed. That run the Hawks went on with the shooting and defense was reminiscent of 2014-2015. Just a fun game to watch. I enjoy blowouts! McMillan for Coach of the Year! This is the shooting we envisioned in the preseason when the team was put together. Also, perfect game from Trae. 30/12 on excellent efficiency. Edit: Capela should be defensive player of the year! Kevin stepping up. Lou is a godsend for the second unti. Bogi is looking way better than his Sacremento days.

  25. Just finished watching it! What a show Trae put on, man! Whenever he meets LaVine it’s go time. Hawks sturdy D and kept the offense flowing in the 4th. Hats off to Capela for his 25th (?) double double by my count, not sure but 22/10/2 and Gallo’s clutch shooting. He missed a ton early in the season but hot now when it’s starting to matter most. Also, Huerter looks sharper with his passing and defense overall. People understanding their roles and swinging and sharing the ball is just beautiful basketball to watch. Oh, and I’d be remiss to neglect one thing, RESPECT OUR

  27. KB was off with all kinds of things. He claimed that the team would be doomed to failure because tanking inherently poisoned a team's culture and the development of the roster. This is just a question of timeline. He made the same claims about the Sixers. Said they wouldn't have a winning record because they tanked when they turned the corner and had a winning record (winning 52 games so not close). After it became clear they would have a winning record, he said that because of tanking they still would not make the playoffs and then they made the playoffs. After they made the playoffs, h

  29. What Phillips said in his tweet is right. Trae succeeding has made a lotta eggsperts look bad. Their remedy is to move the goalposts on him whenever he does well. The idea of putting guys like D. Fox ahead of him is laughable. I mean, good on Fox's teams for not completely sucking for like a month out of his 4 or w/e years in the league, but his parking spot at the lotto building is reserved annually for a reason.

  31. I was thinking during the game about Solo. You so rarely get to see guys with his abilities play in the NBA much less for years and years. The guy is an average shooter, not very good handles, ok finisher at best, probably above average defender but just does all the little things well and hustles like crazy. It's no wonder he keeps getting jobs. Coaches know exactly what they will get from him every time and that's really valuable.

  32. Bogdanovic. Capela. Lou Williams. These are the type of guys we usually watch other teams get before making playoff runs while our front office sit on their hands and make excuses. For the first time in many years, we have a slew of depth featuring guys who can actually PLAY. Just how many do they lose this kind of game by last year without Trae, Collins, Cam, and Hunter? 18? 26? If it wasn't for injuries and some questionable coaching, you could forget about the 4th seed; we would be talking about homecourt advantage in the East and placing bets on how soon would they clinch the div

  33. Paint Points: ATL 66, CHI 46 The stat I had my particular eye on, Points Off TOs: ATL 18 (off 13 CHI TOs), CHI 4 (off ATL's 9 TOs). That was really the game! The out-of-town scores, tonight, emphasize what we've known: don't rely on other teams to dictate if and how quickly you clinch a desired playoff spot. We gotta make our own destiny by taking care of business and winning games like this, and just accept any extra gifts that come along the way. Go Hawks! ~lw3

  37. Here's where we are: Hunter: PRP April 5th....after 3 days of 'unloading' should resume activity maybe today April 9th. Hopefully it's good news and no additional setbacks. Collins: re-evaluated in 7-10 days....so around April 15th-18th, will miss at least another 5 or so games. We'll have about 15 games left in the season. Reddish: initial report had him out 4-6 weeks, re-evaluated next Tuesday April 13th, which will be the 4 week mark. Another 2 weeks should have him returning on or about April 26th. Dunn: practiced 5v5 for the 1st time on April 5th, needs a few more practices before

  39. As I stated in a FB page, this team is going to be a major problem for whoever is unfortunate enough to draw them in the playoffs. I shudder to think of what they're capable of when at full strength, which hasn't even been realized yet. While the defense is still a work in progress, the offense has a NOS button attached to the throttle as the Pelicans painfully found out last night. When going right, very few teams have the firepower to stay around that long with them, especially if their defense continues to improve. That's not hyperbole or me being a homer, them's are the facts. A
