Hawks take advantage of Bucks' aggressiveness on perfectly executed lob play

Here is a closer look at how the Atlanta Hawks can make teams pay for their aggressive defense against Kyle Korver. Sunday's win over the Bucks wasn't a beautiful display of basketball for the Atlanta Hawks but they did have moments of good execution. One such moment occurred in the fourth quarter with the Hawks leading 79-68. Milwaukee had defended the Hawks aggressively on the perimeter but Kyle Korver had gotten free and knocked down three three-pointers in the fourth. Coming out of the timeout, the Hawks took advantage of the extra attention given to Korver to find Al Horford for a...

How the Celtics shut down the best shooter in the NBA

A great defensive gameplan and effort helped the Celtics contain newly appointed all-star Kyle Korver this week. Kyle Korver is having a monster year. He just made his first all-star team, and is on pace for possibly the greatest shooting season ever. In his previous three games against Boston, he averaged over 19 points per game and 70% shooting from three. On one of the first possessions of the game, Korver broke straight for the left corner on a fast break. He then knocked down an open three before any Celtic could contest the shot. It looked like this game had the makings of another...

James Harden's Three-Point Contest Results: Last Place

The beard was a bit of a bricklayer. James Harden only scored 15 in his round at the Three-Point contest, and he was the first guy eliminated as a result. He never got into a rhythm and he tired late, missing 8 of his last 9 shots. Coming immediately after Pat Beverley's surprise Skills Competition, it was a particular disappointment. When you're going up against a legendary field like the one tonight, with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kyle Korver (who also disappointed with 18) and two defending champions, it's going to take a lot to make an impression. Still, a last-place finish is as...

Last second Turner floater boosts Cs over Hawks, 89-88

Turner does it again. The Celtics wrapped up the first half of the 2014-15 season Wednesday night with a huge 89-88 win over the East leading Atlanta Hawks. Seemingly doomed from the outset, Boston shot less than 20 percent from the field and 10 percent from beyond the arc through the entire first quarter—and the second period wasn't much better. The Cs continued to jack up threes at a rapid pace while Atlanta inched further and further ahead with open looks from midrange and strong drives to the rim. The Celtics were able to keep Kyle Korver in check for most of the first half, though,...

All-Star Kyle Korver talks about team offense, defense and having fun

And when he speaks, we listen....and record it....then come back here and type it up. Kyle Korver is no stranger to winning. At Creighton, under Dana Altman, Korver experienced seasons of 23, 24, 23 and 29 wins and went to the NCAA Tournament every season he was a Bluejay. In the pros, Korver was on two very successful Bulls teams, winning 61 and 50 games his two years in Chicago. So since winning is nothing new to him, maybe we should listen when Korver talks about the success his current team, the amazing Atlanta Hawks, is having. We asked some questions and he gave us an excellent...
