Video: Kent Bazemore Flies In For Massive Block Of Derrick Rose’s Layup

Kent Bazemore, Elton Brand, Derrick Rose, Jeff Teague

Derrick Rose is normally explosive enough to get his shot off among the interior trees. One of the reasons why is because freaky guards like Kent Bazemore rarely venture to the paint. Watch the Atlanta Hawks long-armed reserve fly in from the weakside for an emphatic block of Rose’s layup attempt in his team’s 93-86 win over the Chicago Bulls. Read More »

Tobias Harris

Lost amid all the Kobe Bryant passing Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list and the Mike Malone firing, was Orlando’s Tobias Harris sinking the game-winning buzzer-beater to end Atlanta’s nine-game winning streak. It wasn’t an easy shot, either. Read More »

Video: Philly Gives Up Wide-Open Millsap Dunk With Kyle Korver Looming Beyond Arc

Kyle Korver, Alexey Shved

We’re still only a quarter of the way through the 2014-15 NBA season and haven’t even reached Christmas, but Kyle Korver is having perhaps the greatest season shooting the ball from beyond the arc in NBA history. Through 20 games, Korver is tied for the most made 3-pointers in the NBA, AND he’s leading the league in 3-point shooting percentage, connecting on over 55 percent of his 5.4 attempts from distance this season. In tonight’s 95-79 Hawks win over the 76ers, one play showed just how dangerous Korver’s long-range accuracy has become. Read More »

Evan Turner Says Kyle Korver “Can’t Guard To Save His Life”

Kyle Korver, Evan Turner

The bucket was as big as a bath tub for Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver last night during Atlanta’s 109-105 win over the Celtics at Philips Arena. But the C’s were prepared for the onslaught, assigning Evan Turner to mark Korver. Except, as Turner said after the game, he felt the Atlanta three-point ace got an unfair advantage from the refs. Turner even denigrated Korver’s defense by saying, “he has no business being in the game on the defensive end.” Read More »

We love us some DeMarre Carroll. One of the best bargains in the NBA has been playing really well while flying under the radar for the Hawks, and he showed off his improved handle by faking Jrue Holiday out of his uniform during Atlanta’s 100-91 win over the Pelicans Friday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Father & All-Star, Elton Brand, Has Seen It All During His 15-Year Career

Elton Brand

It’s impossible not to picture the regal bearing of Elton Brand every time he drops another gem of knowledge on us. Whether it’s about the game, or about life in general, there aren’t many people — let alone professional athletes — who can offer up such poignant moments from their lives. During our conversation with the power forward last month, before he embarked on his 16th season in the NBA, we got a first-hand account of a career that’s spanned decades. He’s seen and done most everything, and entering possibly his final season, the man teammates simply call “OG” is finally taking some time to appreciate how unique an opportunity this whole NBA thing has been. Just don’t embarrass him by asking about his time slinging rhymes. Read More »
