Josh Smith takes parting shot at 'bandwagon' fans in loss to Hawks

Josh Smith took offense to the boos raining down on him at Philips Arena but when he tried to answer it blew up in his face. Tuesday night wasn't the first time that Josh Smith had made the trip to Philips Arena as a member of an opposing team. Over the last two seasons, Smith has been treated to cheers with a smattering of boos. He has been the subject of torment during the game from the Atlanta's sixth man section but his jump shooting ways while with the Hawks and in Detroit made him a somewhat easy target. Things took a decided shift on Tuesday when Smith apparently grew tired of the...

Without James Harden, Rockets crumble and lose to Hawks

We really could have used the Beard in this one The Rockets were up 17 points in the fourth quarter on the Atlanta Hawks, who have the NBA's best record. The Hawks won, 104-96. It's as bad as it sounded. The Rockets were without James Harden because of a questionable suspension decision and they needed him. When the Hawks turned up their defense, the Rockets' offense with Patrick Beverley, James Harden, Josh Smith/Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas completely disappeared. It's hard not to feel cheated out of a signature win. Before the Hawks went on a 32-12 run to end the game, the...

NBA standings watch: Detroit Pistons two games back of No. 8 seed

Losers of three straight, the Pistons still find themselves within striking distance of a very crowded playoff picture. If the season started Dec. 26, the Pistons wouldn't be fighting for the "right" to play the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the playoffs. They'd instead be bumping elbow with the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls and maybe the Toronto Raptors for a series with home court advantage. They're 18-13 (.580) since waiving Josh Smith but there are no mulligans on the 28 games before that. Here's an updated look at the standings as of Monday morning, March...
