  1. So 76ers... You outshot us from the field (54.9% vs 51.2%) Outrebounded us (41 vs 35) Got to the line more (35 vs 21) Your best player, Embid, played damn near the whole game (38 mins) - most on their team and second to Trae's 39. Seth. Freakin. Curry scored 21 - 21 freaking points! Refs clearly favored you And Hunter, arguably our most valuable player outside of Trae - didn't play. AND YOU STILL LOST THE DAMN GAME. AT HOME!

  3. I am so glad we won that despite the refs wearing Sixers jerseys underneath their zebra shirts. That game was officiated so badly I had to walk away before throwing the remote through the tv. It was BLATANT in how biased the officiating was. I have friends that are fans of other NBA teams and even they were texting me about how bad the refs were. Now we have home court advantage. Now we need to go up 2-0 on Tuesday to break their confidence. This isn't your dad's Hawks out there. This team not only believes they can win but we have the TALENT from the top guy to the 13th guy to

  4. The OFFICIAL Meme of Winning Atlanta Sports Teams! Zaza Pachulia didn’t quite get there with us. And it’s not what he intended when the words fell from his mouth in front of a roaring crowd. But near the end of Atlanta’s first post-millennial journey into the NBA postseason, Zaza’s words proved prescient. "Nothing Easy! Nothing Easy!" Our Atlanta Hawks overcame a decades-long hex to finally reach the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015. Alas, no, we were not allowed to just chill, kick back, and watch the clock come down before celebrating a monumental moment in franchise h

  6. Halftime at the Clips/Mavs game - That the refs swallowed their whistles at the end of the Hawks' game was one of their takeaways in their recap.

  7. Planking. The Choice of an Old Generation. Down by a point midway through the third quarter in Atlanta, the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player found himself confounded by the Hawks’ defensive positioning. For Golden State’s Stephen Curry, this was in a good way. The ball made its way to him on the left corner, right near Dennis Schröder and Dwight Howard, the tent-poles for the regurgitating Atlanta Basketball Club under former Coach of the Year Mike Budenholzer’s watch. Standing around fussing about his careless turnover while trying to get the ball up the court, Howard got in

  8. That ending was ugly due to not having a time out to set up for the traps. The refs allowed Philly to mug Atl and called touch fouls on the Hawks, but at the end of the day, the Hawks pulled it out. 5-1 in the playoffs! Embiid looked to be in pain. If he's out a game our two, it's the Hawks series to win. I'm so proud of this team! Also, Kevin is showing something in these playoffs! Shot out to OO for the tough defense. Trae out played MVP Embiid. Bogi came up clutch. Collins started out slow, but was clutch in the end. Clint will have his hands full this seri

  12. “You’ve got the Brawn. I’ve got the Brains!” “LET’S MAKE LOTS OF…” Ah, yes, there he is! The Greatest** Atlanta Hawks Point Guard of All-Time. ** I hear you, advocates for He Who Can No Longer Be Named. Atlanta’s point god of the 90’s was a one-time All-Star, too. Plus, a two-time steals champ, an All-Defensive First Teamer, arguably the first Hawks starter who, for better or worse, embraced the dawning age of the three-point line. Sadly, there were just too many poor playoff exits, too many bad shooting nights. More sadly, he got reckless in causing a fatal wreck after his ca

  13. If I was a Sixers fan, I'm beyond concerned. If you had told me before the game that not only would Embiid play but hang 40, Hunter wouldn't play, and the refs had Iverson jerseys underneath their uniforms, I would've been hard pressed to believe a way for the Hawks to keep the margin within single digits. Despite getting their best shot from their best player, including the refs all but throwing a chair into the ring to help, they still lost. I have utter confidence that Nate Dogg will have them ready for those traps come Tuesday. And if Hunter returns, well...

  14. It feels great because we just beat a team that is 29-7 at home this year... and is the #1 seed in the East. And their best players played and their best player had a great game. I know it was ugly down the stretch... but we just beat the #1 seed overall in the East while they were at full strength... IN their house. Let's go Hawks!!!!

  16. All these shld figure prominently at points in this series. PHI shld be going 4-on-5 offensively if Thybulle is on the court. And, let's be honest, Simmons' shooting overall is a huge weakness we shld try to exploit. Not just free throw shooting. And another thing, let's not pretend Dan E. Green is always a great shooter. He has bouts with terrible shooting as well. And struggled to defend us at times. Eggsperts just assume he'll be a plus player when it's very much in doubt. And, in closing, folks keep saying the Nix didn't prepare ATL for PHI. Well, what in the actua

  19. The narrative NOW is this: Luka doesn't have the team Trae has. The only reason Trae gets anything is because he has a team around. Just imagine what Luka could do with Trae's team! Disgusting. These idiots know Trae continues to show he's ALSO a superstar in the playoff. Now that Luka is sent home by a much better team in the Clips the narrative now is not look at Trae. It is look at poor Luka on that bad Mavs team. GTFO. Trae is eating your damn disrespect and turning it into gold on the court. F*** Luka and the media. They would rather die than give the Hawks and Trae any actual

  22. That was high school level full court trapping. It rarely works in the pros but we were completely unprepared for it. Sixers length makes it that much more effective. But we should be able to prepare for it now. Also refs need to call some fouls there, they were hacking the hell out of us on most of those steals.

  28. This just cost us the chance to win a title this year. Yeah, I said it. A title. Hawks. Atlanta. I pray he recovers fully and never has injury issues again. He's our third best player and we simply can't beat elite teams in the playoffs without him in a best of seven series. Pray I'm wrong about that...

  30. If you were outraged at what you've seen/heard so far, turn off your computer 'cause I'm about to give a little rundown of what some of the NBARadio eggsperts had to say. You turn it off yet? Ok, for everyone else ... - Isola is a fan, gives ATL their props (I will not say flowers) but he's in a blood feud with Holman because Hol called him a 'clown' when he tweeted praise of Trae after the Nix series. Holman was wrong, I must admit. Isola was giving a sincere mea culpa about being wrong about Trae but Holman responded to the tweet as if he thought Isola was being sarcastic. Anyw

  31. A victory lap on your Trae Young take? Go on a 3 year apology tour first and then pat yourself on the back for saying he would be good in the 2021 playoffs, Mr. Simmons. Do you remember all the garbage you've spouted on Trae? Etc. Own the fact that you spent 3 years underrating this kid and are just now coming around, Bill. Victory lap....

  33. So to summarize.... Ben says he wants to come out fouling Trae more and see if the refs will allow it in Game 2. Trae needs to put him in foul trouble early on Tuesday.

  34. The catch and finish by Collins was ridiculous. Trae gets absolutely destroyed by everyone if that pass is tipped or off line. But that's why he's Trae Young. Not only is he willing to take the chance to make that kind of pass, he's such an accurate passer that it's probably the one pass that no one expected him to do.

  42. On the topic of FT's and fouls, it makes me want to puke to see Doc and Simmons complaining about all the "unfair" foul calls that Trae got. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/nba-playoffs-ben-simmons-doc-233013462.html First, you guys got to mug the team repeatedly in the second half without any whistles so thank your lucky stars that the reffing helped you get back into the game. Second, you shot 35 FTA compared to 21 for the Hawks and are ******ing. Third, you enjoyed a 26 to 22 advantage in fouls called while the only player in the game to get more than 4 fouls was a Hawks.

  43. Takes like this are the reason why the media is so subdued right now. They're salty about having to walk back all the BS narratives they came up with to discredit this kid's achievements. I'm hearing more about what the 76ers need to do to contain Trae than the #5 seed beating the #1 seed on the road. I'm enjoying watching these guys eat those narratives. I'm also noticing the online trolls are mighty quiet out there as well.
