Atlanta Hawks don’t fare well in NBA All-Star voting

Atlanta Hawks don’t fare well in NBA All-Star voting

Hawks players come up short in All-Star voting returns. There will be no Atlanta Hawks in the starting lineup for the 2017 NBA All-Star Game. Fan voting has normally elected the starters for the All-Star game but this year the league elected to make a change adding a player and media element to the process. Fans still accounted for 50 percent of the vote with the players and media accounting for 25 percent each. The Hawks didn’t fair well in the fan element with Dwight Howard the overall winner garnering just over 151,000 votes. Perhaps the biggest slight here (and more evidence that...

NBA trade rumors: Pelicans asked the Hawks about Dwight Howard, according to report

NBA trade rumors: Pelicans asked the Hawks about Dwight Howard, according to report

The New Orleans Pelicans attempted to upgrade their roster while chasing after the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. One way they did so, per ESPN.com’s Zach Lowe, was by inquiring about Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard’s availability on the trade market. In the days that followed, Atlanta and New Orleans had exploratory talks about possible Howard trades before the Hawks pulled everyone off the market, according to several league sources,” Lowe writes.

Hawks, Pelicans previously engaged in Dwight Howard trade talks, per report

Well this is an interesting tidbit. The Atlanta Hawks are playing improved basketball and that has led the club to reportedly pull everyone, including Paul Millsap, off the trade market. However, more details continue to surface on the type of discussions the front office was having prior to that decision and Dwight Howard was included in a recent report to that end. Zach Lowe of ESPN, in the midst of a deep dive on the New Orleans Pelicans, made reference to Anthony Davis and the “physical toll” of playing the talented big man at center. Shortly thereafter, he slipped in this nugget...

Mike Muscala injury: Hawks forward out against Pistons

Mike Muscala injury: Hawks forward out against Pistons

Muscala will miss his second straight game. The Atlanta Hawks will be without forward/center Mike Muscala on Wednesday when they take on the Detroit Pistons. Muscala suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s win over Milwaukee. He eventually was able to walk to the bench area but headed straight to the back and did not return. He did not travel with the team to New York for Monday’s game against the Knicks. Dwight Howard also sat out that game for what was categorized as a rest day. Without Howard and Muscala, the Hawks went with a small starting lineup featuring Paul...

Hawks Battle In New York, Beat Knicks 108-107

This game went down to the wire, but a Dennis Schröder 3-pointer was the difference. The Hawks won a nail-biter on Monday afternoon, pulling out a 108-107 victory in New York against the Knicks. This was the second game of a back-to-back for both teams, as the Hawks played Milwaukee yesterday and the Knicks played Toronto. Both teams were shorthanded today, as Atlanta was without Dwight Howard, DeAndre’ Bembry, and Mike Muscala. New York played without Kristaps Porzingis, relying on their bench more in this contest. Paul Millsap saw extended time at the center position, as the Hawks...

How the Rockets became darlings of the NBA again

How the Rockets became darlings of the NBA again

Houston is now third in the Western Conference with a record of 31-10 (.756) and James Harden is in the middle of one of the great individual seasons in NBA history, so it’s easy to forget what the perception of the Rockets as a team, and organization, was just a few months ago. After a comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the Western Conference semifinals against the Clippers in the 2015 playoffs, with Harden (who finished second in MVP voting) and Dwight Howard, the Rockets had put together a one-two punch that many expected to compete for the best record in the league. Forward to last summer...
