Al Horford on Wednesday’s shooting struggles: ‘It just wasn’t going for me’

The Celtics didn’t bring Al Horford to Boston so he could blow everyone away with his perimeter shooting. But he’s proven at times to be more than adept with a jump shot. Wednesday just wasn’t his night. In the Celtics’ 117-106 loss to the Knicks at TD Garden, Horford looked lost from the perimeter, missing […]

NBA Power Rankings: Hawks slip despite good week

NBA Power Rankings: Hawks slip despite good week

Despite a good week on the court, the Atlanta Hawks slipped a bit in this week’s power rankings roundup. ESPN.com’s Marc Stein gets things started dropping Atlanta three spots after their showdown loss to the Celtics. The Hawks and the Celtics were the East's two hottest teams since mid-December when they met Friday in Al Horford's grand return to the ATL. Boston wanted to win badly for Horford and ultimately did hush a crowd that gave the nine-season Hawk a chillier-than-expected reception, but Atlanta seems to be steadying itself after the recent tumult and trade speculation.

Atlanta Hawks Weekly Wrap: Back to Contending

A week with only two games still brought plenty of news for the Hawks This week was light on games for the Hawks, since a road matchup at Brooklyn and Friday’s home game against Boston were the only events. However, rumors and news continued to surround the team. Atlanta’s seven-game win streak came to an end against Al Horford and the Celtics, and more news about Paul Millsap’s trade status surfaced. If the overall effect of last week’s events was uncertainty regarding the Hawks’ future, this week things are beginning to look a little more clear. Atlanta is starting to look...

Roundtable: How much better would the Wizards be if they had Al Horford right now?

Roundtable: How much better would the Wizards be if they had Al Horford right now?

Jake Whitacre: Wednesday's game against the Celtics got me thinking again about the Al Horford saga. We all know that things did not go well and the backup plan has gone even worse than most of us would have expected. But that said: Would Horford have really made a major impact this season? Of course, he would be an upgrade over all their current frontcourt options, but he's also posting the worst true shooting percentage since his rookie season, his PER is down to its lowest mark since his sophomore season, and the Celtics' Defensive Rating has only been slightly better than the...

Horford’s happy homecoming helped by IT’s hot hand in 103-101 win

Isaiah Thomas leads the Celtics over the Hawks. Sometimes a game takes on an early storyline and then morphs into something different entirely, before taking yet another turn and tonight was one of those nights. The game started out as Al Horford’s return to Atlanta, where he played the first nine years of his career. Then it quickly turned into a shooting exhibition by Boston, as the Celtics rained down triples to open the game. Then the game took another turn, Atlanta fought back in it and all of a sudden neither team could hit anything. After the hot start and a double digit lead, the...
