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 »

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.
