Yeah, I really thought that this team would scale down on the jumpers and mix it up more. They have the talent to do that. Kyle's only shot should not be the 3, pump-fake and get a higher percentage shot. Horford doesn't need to shoot J's all day.

Brooklyn was really moving the ball well. Atlanta didn't come to play.

I thought the Hawks were going to pull this one out when they went up by 4 points, but then they jus couldn't buy a basket after that. They obviously had a bad shooting day and hopefully won't have another one anytime soon.

They have had three straight bad shooting games. They just aren't playing well. Teague hasn't been much of a factor (you telling me he can't take Deron or Jarret Jack?).... These guys just seem listless.

They have, but Jack has been playing REALLY well, better than I've ever seen him in the pros. Sometimes players/teams do that when they are up against a wall and desperate to win. Look at the Pelicans with a 20 point lead on the Warriors last night - but the Warriors did at least come back and barely pull it out like I hoped the Hawks would do today.

Yeah. All credit to Brooklyn though because they made an adjustment (switching) and ATL really didn't handle it like I thought they could. Brooklyn has clearly adjusted to our bread and butter sets, so time to see how ATL handles next game.

Oh and I hope that we draft Jakob Poetl (need a true C in the playoffs).

It will have to be next year...he's going back to Utah for 2015-16.

Absolutely agree! They seemed to move the ball better yesterday than in Game 2 but really, they need to go inside more. I'm tired of seeing all these jumpers from Horford too, mix in shots in the paint! I am cautiously optimistic we make it to the Eastern Conference Finals but we're not breezing in there by any means. And if its going to be by jumpers then look for more consternation the rest of this series and in the next round. Figured we were due for a loss anyway, will probably lose once more in this series before we take care of the Nets. I don't think Brooklyn is all that good really. But we can't seem to get out of our own way and fall into bad habits at inopportune times. Yet we can come back in games!

Frustrating game yesterday and can they call a foul in the lane? I mean really, we seem to get killed every other time down the lane and nothing gets called. Wish we had more toughness down low to give it back them.

The Hawks are playing a little better tonight. Let's hope they can pull out a win in Brooklyn tonight so they can finish off the Nets in game 5 in Atlanta.

Atlanta teams are known to choke in playoffs. Them sucking now isn't that surprising. They'll probably lose in this round and their entire stellar regular season was for naught.

Atlanta fans again dissaponted and people wonder why this is the worst sports city in the country.
