Evan Turner, Jeff Teague

The Hawks upset the Pacers in Indiana yesterday, becoming the third road team with a win on the first day of the 2014 NBA Playoffs. Point guard Jeff Teague and his 28 points were a large reason why the Hawks throttled Indiana so brilliantly in their Game 1 win.

Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner

Sixers teammates Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes must have been hanging out today because Turner posted a photo to Instagram with the caption that mentioned he was at Hawes’ abode. Two teammates hanging out together away from the court isn’t unusual, but the subject matter of Turner’s IG post certainly was, touching on both politics and potty humor in equal measure.
