  • Hawks crush the Cavs in Cleveland, 127-98

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "This one tops them all. The Hawks clearly got their best win of the season by running the Cavaliers out of their own building in a 127-98 victory Wednesday night.

  • Atlanta survives in 93-86 win over Chicago

    Peachtree Hoops "The Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks got together on Monday night for a clash of Eastern Conference playoff teams (at least right now), and the home team emerged with a victory.

    Pero Antic is out for #ATLHawks vs. Bulls. Third game missed with flu.

  • Hawks play ugly versus Magic, but win ninth straight

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The Hawks turned in their worst offensive quarter of the season Friday, and yet they might have crafted as powerful a message as in any game yet this fall. It wasn’t just the barrage of 3-pointers that Paul Millsap and his teammates unleashed while he scored 14 of his 23 points in the second..." December 13

  • Korver leads Hawks over 76ers and eighth straight win

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The Hawks were digging the long ball again Wednesday night, and why not? When you’re third in the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage, and writing paychecks to the league’s top gunner and three of its top 25, why not let it fly? Kyle Korver scored 17 points to match Paul Millsap, yet even after..." December 11

  • Hawks hire chief diversity officer

  • Hawks pound Pacers 108-92, win seventh straight

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "For Atlanta Hawks center Al Horford, it was the classic case of taking what was given to him. “They were giving me little shots,” Horford said. “I was missing some, but I was taking them. That’s what it’s all about. I just wanted to stay aggressive and with this team, you just never know who’s..." December 09

  • Millsap pushes Hawks to 6th win in a row, 96-84 over Nuggets

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "As the Hawks kept humming Sunday afternoon on a low-stress work day, it was easy to note that their defense — so often the preferred talking point of coach Mike Budenholzer — was solid in Atlanta’s sixth victory in a row. Denver shot just 36.6 percent in Atlanta’s 96-84 victory, including 31.7..." December 08

  • Evan Turner reached out to Korver after disparaging remark

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Celtics guard Evan Turner reached out to Kyle Korver – via an intermediary – after he blasted the Hawks guard defensive ability in a loss last week.

  • Hawks top Heat for fourth win in a row

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The Hawks got 43 points, 9 assists and 4 steals from their point guard position on Wednesday night. True, there was some overlap as Jeff Teague played 34 minutes and Dennis Shroeder 22 in a 112-102 win over the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. But it’s still a pretty dynamic, speedy and..." December 04

  • Hawks ride Schroder, Korver to big comeback win over Celtics

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The Hawks found themselves in a mess Tuesday night, and one of their saviors came off the bench as Dennis Schroder not only scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half but played the entire four quarter – as potential All-Star point guard Jeff Teague sat on the bench. A couple of unusual..." December 03

  • Millsap, Scott lead Hawks to blowout victory over Hornets

  • Hawks stifle Pelicans early en route to win

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "This might be the defensive effort Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has been harping about all season. At least for one half, anyway.

  • Raptors Offense Explodes in 126-115 Win Over Hawks

    Raptors HQ "This is a fun team. Coming off wins against Cleveland and Phoenix with a game against Dallas on Friday, you’d think the Raptors were set up for a letdown against a streaky, under the radar Hawks team. No such luck.

  • Scott, Mack lead Hawks to win over Wizards

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Jeff Teague leading the Atlanta Hawks in scoring, that’s not a stunner.

Mike Scott and Shelvin Mack sparking the decisive fourth quarter rally for a rare road..." November 26

  • Brand glad he re-signed with Hawks

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Elton Brand has been here before. The Hawks center played sparingly to start last season after signing with the Hawks as a free agent. He ended up playing in 73 games, including 15 starts, and averaged 5.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and a team-high 1.2 blocks. At one point, he was the only healthy..." November 22

  • Cavaliers 127, Hawks 94: Three-point barrage carries Cavs to blowout win

    Akron Beacon Journal "Whatever magic the Cavaliers discovered in the fourth quarter on Friday carried over into Saturday.

  • Hawks dominate Heat for fourth straight win

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Forget the Big Three. The Heat were left with the Big One. And it was not nearly enough.

Atlanta beat the Jazz (3-6) for the seventh..." November 13

  • Hawks Millsap jersey spelling error

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Paul Millsap didn’t even notice it. His jersey hung in his locker with his last name misspelled.

  • Hawks find energy, defense to rally past Knicks

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The Hawks tweaked their defensive approach as Saturday’s game wore on against the Knicks, but the difference between the first and second halves that Paul Millsap described as, “night and day,” had more to do with the players’ energy than schematic changes. In limiting New York to 35 points and..." November 09

Stephenson grew..." November 08

  • Spurs ride Duncan, escape late against Hawks

    San Antonio Express-News "Eighteen seasons in, fresh ways to rave about Tim Duncan have long since been exhausted. Simply put, the man is great. Still. At 38.

  • Hawks hold off depleted Pacers in home opener

    Fox Sports South "It's a valid question after the Atlanta Hawks' sixth-year point guard has pieced together two consecutive strong performances to start the campaign, keeping his foot on the gas and staying aggressive.
