You must really be getting desperate.

They were getting their brains beat in. Have you peaked at the Hawks record on the road? They're a home only team. Which means they're not a good team. Good teams win and are competitive on the road. They get whipped just like they did against Orlando.

The playoffs are not going to mean squat because they have no shot out of getting out of the 2nd round. They probably will not get past Miami because this is a soft team with 2nd rate players.

It wasn't long ago that you were saying the Hawks sucked because they hadn't beaten any good teams.

After beating NOH, Portland and Utah you are reduced to griping about a loss to a team that has lost only 1 game at home all season. That is just pathetic.

The hawks aren't a great team but saying they are a bad team is just dumb.

14-22 on the road=Bad

22 NBA teams have winning home records. So what?

They got killed just like they did against Orlando. This is still a FAR inferior team and they're playing for nothing in the playoffs cause they got NO SHOT at the finals. Which makes the playoffs meaningless.

Have you looked at Portland, Utah, and Dallas road records? They suck too.

So the playoffs are meaningless for any team that doesn't make the Finals? OK

Please give me a list of teams that don't suck. that should be good for a laugh.

If you're not a championship threat your playoff run is meaningless. Even if (and they'll be lucky to get past Miami) they get to the 2nd round, they have no shot to do anything there. So what's the point? Winning on the road is what separates the good teams from the wannabes. The Hawks are the wannabes.

Teams that can win at home and on the road are the good teams.

Nice win for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Congratulations to Ilgauskas after he scored his 10,000 career points.

LOL what a joke you are. I guess the Bulls playoff runs were meaningless when they got beat by Detroit over and over.

Teams aren't going to go from losing records to Finals appearances overnight. Teams have to learn how to win tough playoff series and that only comes with experience. That is why all playoff games matter but you are too dumb to see it.

I don't even know why you follow the NBA at all since it obviously makes you so miserable. You should probably just stick to movies.

This team only has 2 more road wins than last year. They're road winning is not really improving at all. It could have been different if the correct draft picks were made. Everytime I look at Marvin I wish ill on Billy. I hope that fat bastard has a heart attack.

Down 53-35 at half time. Yeah, this team is really improving on the road. They should be a rule that doesn't allow the players to get paid when they play like this.

The folks in Atlanta knows this is still a bad team. That's why the arena is STILL near empty every game.

I am still waiting for your list of teams that don't suck. I also can't figure out why you watch the NBA at all since all you ever do is complain.

The Hawks are having their best season in a decade and all you can do is...

Lakers
Celtics
Cavs
Magic
Spurs

Those are the championship type of teams.

Then you have:

Hornets
Rockets
Denver (Maybe)

Everybody else is mediocre or bad.

Just because it's the teams best season in a decade doesn't mean it's a season to be proud of. They're still not a legit threat for anything of importance. When they reach that (which ain't happening soon) then I'll stop dogging them.

The Hawks swept NOH this year. The Rockets and Denver are .500 teams on the road. That means only 5 teams in the NBA don't suck in your bizarro world. all the other teams have nothing to play for.

You are the most negative person i have ever seen on a message board. Congradulations.
