  1. As of the 1:30 boo-boo report, Johnny Bap's still Questionable (concussion), Cam, like the Hawks, is doubtful (sore Achilles). As if it matters, Kemba probably will be shelved (injury management). Smart (calf) and Langford (wrist) remain out. ~lw3
  2. “HOW YOU LOSIN’ TO THE CAVS AGAIN? DAYYUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNN!” “There’s No Chemistry!”, we’re told, when something named Lamar Stevens looks like a dadgum DuPont Factory on wheels strolling down the lane untouched in the clutch. Whatever. In usual Atlanta Sports years, by the time our Hawks had blown their 10th fourth-quarter lead of the season (as per 92.9’s Mike Conti), we’d be occupied with United fooling around in the playoffs, fretting over the Dawgs getting stonewalled by Saban, and watching Matty Ice waltz for his life behind a slushy O-Line. More often than not, we’r
  3. “WHO WANTS TO SEXTON?” Michael Carter-Williams had arrived. 22 points, 12 assists, 9 steals, to help his lottery team defeat the juggernaut defending NBA champs in his professional debut. The sky was the limit. Brandon Jennings made his grand entrance. 55 points on national TV, while a fellow rookie named Stephen Curry watched from the bench. A star was born. Jamaal Tinsley’s big moment was here. A triple double, featuring 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 23 assists, as a rookie, in a win against MJ’s Wizards. Pass the torch! The ceiling is the roof!
  4. Nuggs' Game Thread (https://www.nba.com/gamenotes/nuggets.pdf) has Uncle Paul still sitting this one out (sprained knee). Also out is backup JaMychal Green, who injured his shoulder not even two minutes into Wednesday's loss in Washington (Denver also lost on Tuesday in Boston, 105-99), and missed out on Jamal's 50-burger in Cleveland. Murray and near-30-year-old "rookie" Facundo Campazzo are stepping up also because the Nuggs are missing guards P.J. Dozier and Gary Harris, leaving Denver without four of their top nine minute-loggers. ~lw3
  5. “Psst… Trae! C'mere. You ever heard of Henny Youngman?” Here’s all I’ve got, ahead of today’s game between our host Atlanta Hawks and the Denver Nuggets (7:30 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast and 92.9 FM in ATL, Altitude TV in DEN). Keep That Woman and That Family far, far away from All-Star Sunday in Atlanta. And, from Oklahoma. On any off-day before or after the break. Yes, Kougar Kim, this means y’all. Hawks fans, when was the last time you thought of Kris Humphries? It’s probably been more than 72 days, right? Exactly. Chandler Parsons thought he was in the clear
  6. "This is like Bawb praising Gallo at the FT line!" ~n1qu3
  7. Boston will have to wait a little longer to see Rondo (out, back pain) play at the Gahden again. Another day, another opportunity to know that Bogi, "Done," and Hunter are still out. Hawks Game Notes indicate Trae Young is 10th among Hawks all-time for made threes (420-for-1210), and a current Celtic and fellow former one-time All-Star is at #9. The circumstances behind their tenures, their shot locations and their on-ball defenders differ greatly, but Jeff Teague made ten more threes as a Hawk on only four more attempts (430-for-1214). Up next on Trae's sights once he passes Teague: Warr
  8. “No, seriously, Bama, how did we let this guy get away from our recruiters?” Our Atlanta Hawks got next-to-no help in the Leastern Conference standings, not in the intervening days between their first win since April 2018 against the Boston Celtics, and the rematch at TD Garden tonight (7:30 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast and 92.9 FM in ATL, NBC Sports Boston). Not unless we’re trying to catch the Bucks. The Lakers that could play were a hot mess against the Nets that could play yesterday. The T’wolves tried their best by dragging Indiana into OT on Wednesday but ran out of
  9. Turkey Chili and, in honor of Mr. Maxwell, Cornbread! 5:30 injury report confirms Snell is available, while the Usual Suspects remain Usual for the Hawks. Kemba sits out this game, while Daniel Theis remains out with a sprained finger. Boston has lost their last two contests when they've played the night before. Last week, they beat the Raps on a Thursday only to fall victim to a team that doesn't seem to care who's playing for them, Detroit, on a Friday. ~lw3
  10. “I liked Beard Club for Men so much… I bought the company!” I didn’t have many wild NBA preseason predictions, except for this one: Danny Ainge, quietly, is preparing for his exit from Boston. Ainge doesn’t wait for rumors to swell before he decides he wants to spend more time with family. You’ll recall the Phoenix Suns were just six weeks into the 1999-2000 season, doing just fine at 13-7 when Ainge, then their 40-year-old coach and the newest inductee of the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, said he wasn’t “jumping ship.” He was “diving overboard,” he insisted, “to save his f
  11. Omari's now a reserve for the Erie Bayhawks, for you gluttonous Glubble Fantasy League fans out there. https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/basketball/news/omari-spellman-scores-15-against-austin/ ~lw3
