  1. Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via Getty ImagesA much needed win, and quite a way to get it After a horrific loss in Cleveland on Tuesday night, the Atlanta Hawks bounced back to pick up a sorely needed victory against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night at State Farm Arena, 127-112. Danilo Gallinari exploded for 38 points and a franchise-record 10 three-pointers, while Trae Young added 33 points as the Hawks clinched the season-series 2-1. For the Celtics — without Kemba Walker on the second night of a back-to-back — All-Star Jaylen Brown led the way with 17 points. Former Hawk Jeff Tea

  3. Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesFollowing a highly disappointing one-point loss in Cleveland on Tuesday, the Atlanta Hawks returned to State Farm Arena for the third matchup against the Boston Celtics in the span of eight days. After splitting the first two meetings, the Hawks exploded in a 127-112 home victory, with Danilo Gallinari putting together a night for the ages. Though there was some doubt about whether he would play after missing the second half on Tuesday with a concussion evaluation, John Collins wasted no time making an impact. He scored seven quick points and, in tandem with

  5. Dale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsNearly three months after the NBA announced the “first half” schedule for all 30 teams, the “second half” schedule was still a mystery. In fact, the league waited almost as long as possible to reveal its plans for after the All-Star break, in part due to extensive postponements for several teams. Finally, however, the NBA released the breakdown of the final 36 games for the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. Atlanta will wrap up the first half on Wednesday, March 3 in Orlando. From there, the All-Star break arrives, including the All-Star Game itself on Sunday, March 7. T
  6. Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesThe Atlanta Hawks suffered a brutal loss on Tuesday evening, yielding to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the final seconds. While that result looms, the Hawks have little time to press the reset button, as the team returns home to Atlanta to host the Boston Celtics on Wednesday evening. This is the third meeting in eight days between the Hawks and the Celtics, with the two teams splitting a pair of matchups in Boston. Atlanta won the first tilt and, after digging a massive hole in the follow-up, the Hawks played well in the second half to threaten the Celtics.
  7. Ken Blaze-USA TODAY SportsA horrid end to the game and a horrid result The Atlanta Hawks were unable to chain a second consecutive victory on Tuesday night, falling short on the road to the Cleveland Cavaliers 112-111. Trae Young scored 28 points and dished out 12 assists while Kevin Huerter scored 22 points, hitting four three-pointers. For the Cavaliers, Collin Sexton scored 29 points despite his foul trouble in the second half. Darius Garland added 17 points. Whoo boy, where to begin because this was a wild game. The Hawks were decent favorites heading into last night’s game and sh
  8. Ken Blaze-USA TODAY SportsAn unfortunate sequence of events. The Atlanta Hawks visited the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday evening, in what was about as close to a “must-win” game as possible at this point in the season for the Hawks, as their schedule gets significantly more difficult following this game. It’s no exaggeration to say that coming into this game, the Cavaliers were playing bad basketball, sitting on a 10-game losing streak. The Hawks were looking to secure a win as they head into the toughest part of their schedule. The Hawks lost the first matchup with the Cavaliers (Jan. 2)
  9. Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Getty ImagesIn the midst of a breakout campaign, Trae Young was selected as a starter for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, and he was quite busy during All-Star Weekend, participating in the Rising Stars Challenge and Three-Point Contest before putting up a double-double in Sunday’s main event. On Tuesday, however, word broke from Shams Charania of The Athletic that Young was not included when the NBA revealed its selections for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game, leaving the Hawks without a representative in the league’s showcase event. Shortly after 7:00 pm ET, the N

  11. Jason Getz-USA TODAY SportsTaking a look at this week’s power rankings from around the web. Another week has ended in this up and down season for the Atlanta Hawks. The team continues to fight for a playoff spot and find its baseline, even while navigating a ton of injuries. The Hawks managed to break a losing streak last week and, despite a disappointing loss on Friday, Atlanta bounced back with a home on Sunday over Denver. Here is a look at how power rankings feel about the Hawks through Monday. NBA.com — No. 20 In time for All-Star reserve voting, Trae Young is on one of those up-tic
  12. Ken Blaze-USA TODAY SportsThe Atlanta Hawks (13-17) take on the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday evening, looking to make it two straight wins, and three-of-four overall, after a good win Sunday night vs. the Denver Nuggets. Cleveland comes into the contest losers of ten straight, so they will be about as desperate for a win as an NBA franchise can get one third of the way through the regular season. Cleveland has a ridiculously bad 125.6 defensive rating over that stretch, and a -21.3 net rating. To say they are struggling is putting it very mildly. The Hawks did however lose to the Cavaliers at
  13. Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesA very satisfying game, one the Hawks prevailed over their opponents. The Atlanta Hawks returned to winning ways on Sunday night as they toppled the Denver Nuggets 123-115 at State Farm Arena. Trae Young assembled one of his better games of the season as he scored 35 points and dished out 15 assists (to go along with just three turnovers). Clint Capela added a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds. For the Nuggets, Jamal Murray scored 30 points to follow up from his 50 point performance over the weekend but couldn’t drag the Nuggets to victory with
  14. Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via Getty ImagesThe Atlanta Hawks (12-17) came into this matchup with the Denver Nuggets looking to change course and head towards the halfway point in the season on an upswing, having lost five of their last six games and eight of their last ten games. The Nuggets similarly sought consistent results to vault them among the elite in the Western Conference, sitting at 16-13 and winners of four of their last six. The Hawks continued to be without the services of De’Andre Hunter, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Rajon Rondo and Kris Dunn due to long term injuries. The visiting N
