DeMarre Carroll is the Atlanta Hawks' Tenacinator

He gets the job done, whatever it takes. The following is a sponsored post where we assign an Atlanta Hawks player to one of State Farm's National Bureau of Assists characters: Today's Player: DeMarre Carroll as The Tenacinator Little was said when the Hawks seemingly secretly agreed to a contract with free agent forward DeMarre Carroll two seasons ago. Sure, there was talk of the new Junkyard Dog playing solid minutes off the bench for the Utah Jazz, but nobody knew for sure what he would be as a starter. All Carroll did was immediately become the defensive glue to what Coach Mike...

Celtics soar into break thinking playoffs

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics ran the exact same play in a crunch-time situation three weeks ago in Denver, so when Avery Bradley curled off a high screen in the final seconds of Wednesday's game against the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Hawks, he fully expected the ball to be coming his way. Evan Turner felt bad, but he called an audible. With four seconds to play and BOston trailing by one, Turner drove on Atlanta's DeMarre Carroll, went behind his back to get the ball to his right hand, and -- after nearly losing control -- got into the paint where he hit a floater over three Hawks...

Turner: 'You're going to hug me' for winner

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens knew by putting the ball in Evan Turner's hands late in Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks, it probably wasn't coming out. So even though the play he drew up was the same one that led to an Avery Bradley game-winning jumper in Denver three weeks back, Stevens was comfortable knowing that this time around would likely end with Turner attacking the basket. Sure enough, in a late-clock situation, Turner looked away from a curling Bradley and elected to drive on DeMarre Carroll before hitting a floater in the lane with 0.

DeMarre Carroll "in good shape", Shelvin Mack remains on the shelf

The Atlanta Hawks have been operating at less than full strength recently, but they received positive reports on DeMarre Carroll on Tuesday, while Shelvin Mack awaits similar news. Monday night did not bring a lot of positives for the Atlanta Hawks, but the return of DeMarre Carroll to the lineup was certainly encouraging. On Tuesday afternoon, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution brought word that Carroll should be good to go for the future after emerging from the loss to the Pelicans with no injury issues.

DeMarre Carroll returns, but Hawks fall to Pelicans

DeMarre Carroll returned from a two-game absence Monday night but the Atlanta Hawks still fell to the New Orleans Pelicans snapping their 19-game winning streak. For most of the season, the Atlanta Hawks have done a good job of keeping their eyes pointed straight ahead. They haven't allowed themselves to dwell on losses nor have they stopped to celebrate big wins. That strategy has worked well for them in their 40-9 start to the season so it wasn't surprising to see them shake off Monday's streak-ending loss to the Pelicans so easily. "We've got a lot of season left," said Paul Millsap...
