Preview: Hawks host Nets in third meeting of 2020-21 season

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Led by Trae Young and a second half surge, the Atlanta Hawks picked up a victory on Tuesday evening, improving to 9-8 on the season. Lloyd Pierce’s team must turn around in short order, however, as the Hawks welcome the Brooklyn Nets to State Farm Arena the very next night. Brooklyn arrives on regular rest for Wednesday’s tilt after knocking off the Miami Heat on Monday evening. While the Hawks and Nets split a pair of meetings earlier this season, Brooklyn looks a bit different this time around after acquiring James Harden in a four-team...

Breaking down Atlanta’s fourth quarter chess match with the Clippers

Breaking down Atlanta’s fourth quarter chess match with the Clippers

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The Atlanta Hawks secured a hard-fought victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night, and the match-up was interesting on a number of levels. For me, the most fascinating part of the game was a chess match, of sorts, that we saw between the two coaching staffs as they threw adjustments from an Xs and Os perspective at one another. Atlanta has shown an affinity for running a certain pick-and-roll action late in games when they have the lead, and they went back to it in this game in an effort to close out the victory. This time, though,...

Hawks outlast short-handed Clippers, 108-99

Hawks outlast short-handed Clippers, 108-99

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports After being without Trae Young and Clint Capela for a game, both starters returned to the lineup for a battle against the L.A. Clippers on Tuesday night in State Farm Arena. The Atlanta Hawks have not been at full strength all season, but this is a matchup where they have been rather close to it. Atlanta would handle the short-handed Clippers behind a fine offensive showing from Young, winning by a score of 108-99. The Clippers cannot say that they were close to full strength as they were missing three starters against Atlanta. For people...

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ The Atlanta Hawks saw their three-game winning streak come to an end on Sunday night, falling to the Milwaukee Bucks on a night in which Trae Young and Clint Capela were sidelined. Lloyd Pierce and company will be keeping a close eye on the injury report yet again on Tuesday when the L.A. Clippers come to State Farm Arena, but the visitors will definitely be short-handed as they arrive. The Clippers will be without their two superstars — Kawhi Leonard and Paul George — due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols, and neither made the...

NBA power rankings roundup: Week 6

NBA power rankings roundup: Week 6

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports Taking a look at this week’s power rankings from around the web. The Atlanta Hawks have had an up and down season and the injuries certainly do not help. The Hawks managed to get three wins this week, however, and the team kept its record at .500 as a result. To that end, here is round-up of how power rankings are treating Atlanta this week. NBA.com — No. 17 Because they traded for him last February, Clint Capela wasn’t necessarily thought of as an “addition” for the Hawks this offseason. But he never played for them last season...

Things threatened to get ugly but the Hawks showed fight The Atlanta Hawks faced an uphill battle from minute one of their Sunday night contest against the Milwaukee Bucks as both Trae Young (back spasm) and Clint Capela (right hand soreness) ruled out prior to tip-off at Fiserv Forum, while the likes of Danilo Gallinari, Onyeka Okongwu and Cam Reddish were on minutes restrictions, though Lloyd Pierce did not disclose the exact details of these restrictions pre-game.

Should the Atlanta Hawks try and sign Isaiah Thomas?

The Atlanta Hawks are always trying to improve their ranks. Last season they traded for Clint Capela and that has gone incredibly well for the franchise.

Short-handed Hawks fall short in Milwaukee, 129-115

Short-handed Hawks fall short in Milwaukee, 129-115

Just one hour before tip-off on Sunday evening, word broke that the Atlanta Hawks would be forced to operate without both Trae Young and Clint Capela — in addition to Bogdan Bogdanovic and Kris Dunn — against the Milwaukee Bucks. That certainly put the visiting team in an unfavorable position but, after a slow start, the Hawks did compete at a high level, even if they fell to the Bucks by a final score of 129-115. The first quarter was a challenge for the Hawks, to the point where the slow start ultimately cost Atlanta a chance to make the full game more interesting. The...
