Atlanta Hawks: Defense, Depth key to recent run

On November 26, the Hawks gave up 126 points to the Toronto Raptors in an uninspired loss at home. Since that embarrassment, they’ve won 11 of their past 12 games and have held 10 of those opponents to under 100 points, and six to under 90. Though forward Paul Millsap is near the league lead in steals per game, the Hawks defensive success is a tribute to their cohesive team positioning...

No excuse, and none given, for Cavs' flawed effort vs. Hawks

Random thoughts on the Cavaliers' embarrassment of a 127-98 home loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday: 1. The Cavaliers weren't physical, they didn't rebound and they certainly did not defend. Other than that, the night was a smash hit. 2. How bad was it? Bad enough that Cavs coach David Blatt felt the need to apologize to fans. That doesn't happen often in the NBA. But it was...
