Cavs 104, Hawks 93; Jason Lloyd's 21 thoughts on defending Kyle Korver, free throws and 3-pointers

CLEVELAND: Twenty-one thoughts for 21 points from Kyrie Irving in the Cavs’ 104-93 win Monday over the Atlanta Hawks for a 1-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals… 1.      Tyronn Lue immediately groaned last week when I mentioned how the Cavs have managed to neutralize Kyle Korver for the last two years. 2.      “Don’t do that, man,” he said. I asked if he thought I just jinxed them. “I hope not,” he said. 3.      No jinx. The Cavs’ defense on Korver remains as stifling as ever. He took just one shot in Game 1 as the Cavs rendered one of the...

Marcus Smart's flop shouldn't overshadow his Game 3 performance

BOSTON -- Twitter is still giggling after Kyle Korver tapped Marcus Smart, who was sent soaring into outer space in the Celtics 111-103 win over the Hawks. Of course, Korver doesn't have Superman-like strength. Smart simply flopped as an attempt to draw what would've been a crucial foul call. But the refs didn't take the bait and the NBA fined Smart $5,000 for the flop. And that's a real shame, because Smart was spectacular in the win. Please click here to read my full article on Smart's performance. Here's a quick snippet: Marcus Smart's flop shouldn't overshadow his Game 3...

Hawks use opening barrage to fend off Celtics for 89-72 win in Game 2

Defense, more defense and a hot offensive start. It wasn't entertaining or aesthetically pleasing in any real way, but the Atlanta Hawks did what they needed to do. The home team suffocated the visiting Boston Celtics with quality defense for 48 minutes, and with a strong offensive showing at the outset of the night, the Hawks were able to fend off the visitors by a final score of 89-72. The start to the game was, well, perfection. The Hawks began the night by outscoring the Celtics by a 24-3 margin (not a misprint) and the difference between the two teams was stark. Kyle Korver connected...

Hawks vs Celtics: Atlanta wings will be tested against Boston

The first round series between the Hawks and Celtics will include a number of interesting matchups on the wing. While the point guard battle will be intriguing, a lot of the battle between the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics will be fought on the wing. Injuries slowed the start of the season for Atlanta's Kyle Korver and he appears to have lost a step along the way as well. Korver's shooting percentages rebounded in the second half of the season, but teams have been successful in taking him away and limiting his opportunities on many nights. Korver figures to see a lot of defensive...
