Video: Al Horford Powers Through Amir Johnson For Poster jam

Al Horford

Jeff Teague sets the table. Paul Millsap gets the numbers. And Kyle Korver bends the defense. In our opinion, though, Al Horford is the Atlanta Hawks’ best player – it’s about time we gave him some due. Watch the should-be All-Star get Jonas Valanciunas in the air and drive baseline for an authoritative dunk on Amir Johnson in his team’s 110-89 win over the Toronto Raptors. Read More »

Video: Kent Bazemore Puts Crazy Wingspan To Full Effect For Big Block

Marcus Smart, Kent Bazemore

The Atlanta Hawks play perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing brand of offense in basketball. Believe it or not, though, it’s the play of Mike Budenholzer’s team on the other end that’s spurred them to such great heights in 2014-2015. Watch Atlanta offseason acquisition and defensive ace drive home that reality and Kent Bazemore put his nearly seven-foot wingspan to perfect use on this massive chase-down block of Marcus Smart during his team’s win over the Boston Celtics last night.

Video: Al Horford Records First Career Triple-Double In Just 29 Mins

Al Horford, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

First, we have to add the caveat that Al Horford‘s triple-double last night came against the Sixers, despite the Sixers no longer acting as the worst team in their conference anymore. Still, Horford and a Hawks team missing the majority of their starting lineup dismantled Philly like they’ve done most of the rest of the league while winning their last nine straight games and 23 of their last 25. Most impressive Horford was that Horford his first career triple-double in just 29 minutes of action. Read More »

Video: Marc Gasol Chastises Hawks Fan Who Gave Him Fake ‘High Five’

Marc Gasol

Players are under no obligation to ‘high five’ or ‘dap’ fans who hold their hand out as teams head from the court to the locker room – especially at an away game following a loss. So you can understand the frustration of Marc Gasol when a really cool, clever, and not-at-all childish opposing fan pulled his hand back as the Spanish big man reached for it following the Memphis Grizzlies’ loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.

Video: Marc Gasol Hits Over-The-Backboard Floater

Marc Gasol

The Grizzlies are still missing Zach Randolph, which is their only saving grace after a 96-86 loss in Atlanta tonight. The Hawks beat them in every quarter except the last, which they only lost by a single point, but center Marc Gasol can hardly be faulted for the loss. His numbers were impressive on both sides of the ball, and while the Grizzlies lost, he certainly had the shot of the game. Read More »
