Atlanta Hawks at the quarter pole; Who is this team?

A great start, followed by a dreadful finish We have reached the quarter pole of the NBA season and we can safely say that the 2016-17 season for the Atlanta Hawks has truly been an up and down affair.

Dennis Schroder May Have Found His Sweet Spot

It’s no secret that this team is struggling right now. The Hawks finished their West Coast road trip winless, losing to the Phoenix Suns Wednesday night, 109-107.

It is not the losing that is most concerning, it is the way they are losing which was...

Is This What We Should Have Expected From The Atlanta Hawks?

With 19 games of the season gone, we cannot help but look back at pre-season expectations and analysis and reflect. The inconsistent 10-9 start has told us so much and perhaps this kind of form is what we should have expected from the very start.
