Atlanta is 27-11 since Nate McMillan took over as coach. They’ve been a legitimately great team with him at the helm. Worth noting.

Hideously weak path though.

Even good names either rested or fell apart with injuries.

They got destroyed by 20+ by the Sixers both times (once by 40+).

Just seeing the Knicks do well kind of pleases me.

Would be good for the league if they could be somewhat successful for a bit

Especially with Brooklyn up there too...

Should be a close series. Hawks SHOULD win it on paper, but the Knicks have matched up well against them (3 - 0 in the RS) and they have the best defense in the league, with an experienced vet in Rose, who I trust more in crunch time than anyone on the Hawks tbh. Thibs is also the better coach. Nate McMillan doesn't have a great track record in the POs, hasn't made it out of the 2nd round and has been swept 3 out of the last runs. Hasn't won a Playoff series in 16 years.

The Hawks have also dealt with a lot of injuries. Deandre Hunter looks like he's going to be healthy.

That 40 point loss to the Sixers was on the road in a back-to-back without Trae.

In the same timeframe they've beaten the Heat, Bucks, Blazers, and Suns. All were healthy.

Sixers Path will probably be Celtics -> Hawks -> Nets -> Clippers. That's not a bad lineup. Lakers first two teams will likely be easy as well with the small suns and one man band nuggets. They could win those series in 5 or less.

On paper they are a better team. Unless you can count on Randle to score 40 a game as he's done during the season, this series will be closer than you think. All of those games were close, and 2 of them were a long time ago before Pierce was even fired. The other was an OT game in the second game of a back to back for the Hawks, and on the road no less.

Denadre Hunter is back. The team is playing well. Don't set yourself up to be extremely disappointed.

Don't sleep on us, especially with our high rated defense that will definitely pick up in the playoffs. Randle, Rose, Barrett, Quickley, Burks and company is too much for y'all.

Op has no clue what his talking about Hawks vs Knicks should be a very good series. Hawks were the 3rd most injured team in the league and still grabbed the 5th seed. Knicks lack top end talent and experience but play hard nosed basketball. Hawks players with playoff experience are bench players outside of Capella. I don't trust the 76rs wouldn't be surprised if they were upset.

Knicks have been one of the healthiest teams all seasons and play their starters more minutes than any other team. They are tied with a hawks team record

Please, those other 3 are skilled and can score in a million ways. Trae is unwatchable at this point. I was actually rooting for Trae when he was drafted, was hoping he would be better than Luka. But nope. I've already watched too many games where Trae has taken over the game via foul drawing flopping techniques. It's just not respectable anymore, even Harden gave up on it for the most part. Trae has crazy numbers, but didn't make the all-star game. Pretty sure it has a lot to do with his flopping techniques.

I hope my boy Frank locks his azz up.

Frank will get served just like the rest of them boyz. When is the last time he was in the Knicks regular rotation.
Trae is one of the most skilled players in the league.
2nd in the league in assist for 2 straight years, 2nd most points in the paint of any guard but he can't score in multiple ways. If he was on the Knicks scoring 25 pg, he would be called the next Walt Frazier or Mark Jackson.

Funny how the goal post always moves when you are talking about Trae Young.
First it was he is too small, then it was he was the worse defender in the league, then it's he doesn't lead his team to wins, now it's he's just flopping and drawing fouls.

If you don't like the dude cool, but stop pretending he is not elite, people were hating on Steph, Dame and Harden the same a few years ago, now you are giving them props and hating on Trae for playing a similar style.

McMillan has him playing much differently. He's getting more penetration and setting up others, less chucking and flopping.

They do with Thibs at the helm. They slid a little in DRTG at the end of the season, but I don't think there's a better overall defense in the league. They're #1 in opponent FG and 3PT%, #1 in points allowed because of their ability to slow down the pace and are top 3 in DRTG, and they did it consistently all year, even against the best offenses in the league.

The Hawks had the 3rd most injuries of any team in the league, only Orlando and Houston players out more than the Hawks. The Knicks and Hawks record is tied even though NY has been one of the healthiest teams all year. Randle is a problem, but the Hawks have more offensive weapons and one of the best distributors to get them the ball. Randle has been a one year wonder, but if you check the stats, Trae Young averages more points than Randal and has been that guys since he came in the league.

Sounds like you b**tching because Trae Young was the best player on the court and it wasn't even close. The Hawks weren't whining when Julius pushed Galo out of bounds with no call. This game was about who made more plays, the refs had nothing to do with the outcome!

I'm actually happy LeBron made the Lakers unwatchable for me... now I can enjoy other teams as I've been doing so for years now. Less Lakers less drama... more Jokic, Embiid and some exciting basketball like this game. Thanks a lot Bron. Would not have been possible w/o you.

Tough game for Randle in his playoff debut. Big *** shot by Trae, but f that guy. Refs reward flopping, this is what we have to look forward to in the future of this league.

After cooling down..

The Knicks came out fired up and the crowd is and has been insane. Rose was unbelievable and they had a good game plan by going big with Taj and pretty much rendering Collins (and the paint game in general) useless. Also trapping Trae and gambling that the shooters wouldn't hit. It worked tonight

Hawks went 3-20 from 3 in the second half and I think 10-34 overall from the field. Credit to the Knicks defense but a lot of these shots were open.

It's hard not to get on Nate a little bit for sticking to his rigid PT schedule despite the way the game was going. Trae and Capela needed to be back playing way sooner than they were. If he was letting it ride with the understanding that splitting up there was fine then whatever. If it happens again going forward then it's a massive issue.

You are exactly correct, poor coaching from Nate. He waited to long to get Trae and Capela back in the game and allowed the Knicks to take all the momentum. He coached the game like a regular season game and the Knicks kept making plays down the stretch. The Knicks are giving up too many open shots, but getting away with it because Gallo and Heurter and tonight Bogi forgot how to shoot. I was impressed with how Toppin and Taj played, they controlled the paint and took advantage of AWOL John Collins.

Trae is fun to watch when he isn't foul-baiting. Same as Harden. They often go on baiting bouts, and it gets very annoying to watch.

Hes sodomizing everybody. But that was expected. The problems on offense. Randle and Barrett are a combined 1/12. Too much iso ball.

Dammit slowly but surely, Trae taking over the game. Bullock is def the best defender on him though

Waiting on RJ to do something... might be waiting a long time

Thibs is not a good offensive coach. He relies too much on grinding on defence.

I didn't watch him often recently but he seems to be a different, much improved player than he was last year. The assists were there before, sure... but he was more selfish I think. Now... really good decision making. Attacking... but if the opportunity is not there he is involving everyone. Really fun player to watch, I'm pleased.

Mid 3Q: Hawks 74, Knicks 59.

Hawks shooting 56% FG and 59% threes.

D-Rose 20 points.

Julius Randle is 1 for 12.

I appreciate Rose carrying and he's doing great. My only problem is he doesn't make anyone else better offensively.

Not true. Hes setting the pace, being unselfish and finding teammates in good positions. But if they miss everything, there is as much as you can do.

Once he’s healthy and gains a little more confidence/assertiveness Deandre Hunter is going to be an absolute animal.

So so smooth.

He’ll score 22 next year on good efficiency. I see a more athletic Khris Middleton

The Hawks we missing key players when they played before, and Nate McMillian wasn't the head coach. This is not the regular season.

Yeah the Hawks with McMillan were one of the very best teams in the league. They're a better team than the Knicks.
