Raps toying with the Hawks right now. Hawks are bad. Raps are good. I haven't been this excited about a Raps team in a long time.
I'm surprised of how horrible Speedy Claxton has been in ATL. He was such a force of the bench for New Orleans last year, taking over games in the 4th quarter at times. I don't know if it's the Hawks system, or something else.
Hawk Fans please dont give any excuse, you have to admit we are playing decent defense. I am likin the Pg position this year !! Just for the fact that Calderon and Tj Ford playin different style, a team really cant adjust easily. Both of us give us a different good look.
JJ > Rip Hamilton easily and he should've been an all-star.
Basketball is a team game and no one player has full control over wins and losses. Johnson to me is clearly the better individual player.
Hawks go on a little run but still down by 12. Law of averages just kicking in. The Raptors weren't going to stay at 60% shooting and they weren't going to keep playing solid D either. Good news is that they had a big 17 pt cushion to work with and still have a good lead.
