This is the perfect thread for poster to start the "Then don't watch". This is going to be another sad game for the Hawks.

I call hawks win tonight. They only lost 1 game in the series so far. Kinda early to be writing them off just yet. ;)

It's nice to see a nice game. Some questionable calls for both teams, but fair. Horford is having a great game, so I don't see why all of the haters of the Hawks like to bash this dude.

macc
05-06-2010, 10:25 PM
^^^^ I agree, Horford can do damage downlow or he can step back and shoot a jumper. The guy has alot of skill. Atlanta is a really talented team. They are just missing that defensive big guy downlow.

Josh Smith has taken quite a few hits this game.

Josh Smith is my fav player, but he doesn't give alot. If he gives 100% he could be unstoppable. He did get hit by Carter, but if he didn't do so much acting, he could of went down court and Carter wouldn't of push this lead. Josh Smith is a slacker for such a talented guy. Sad really.

macc
05-06-2010, 10:31 PM
I was wondering when our team defense was going to show up. Now they got Atlanta just running iso's. Atlanta is alot better when they are moving the ball around.

Ya Smith is extrememly talented. Would like to see him demand the ball more.

It's not like he can shoot...
literally all he can do on the offensive end is dunk, he's worthless otherwise.

:facepalm: at Smith pushing the ball up court just now.

But about demanding the ball more, I am counting on Joe Johnson leaving so it could be Smith's team and hopefully Marvin can get more shots too. Joe Johnson thinks he is a superstar and just keeps the ball forever when he has 3 talented forwards.

*Silver&Black*
05-06-2010, 10:36 PM
Crawford should have the ball run through him right now.

A loss will be good for the Hawks in the long run.

Crawford should be running the pg the majority of the game. Hes great off the dribble but not selfish. Maybe you guys could trade Bibby for some good bench players.

We have 4 players w/ 20+ points. Very nice.

I would love/rather sign and trade Joe Johnson (but he could leave without us getting anything). But I feel more safe with Crawford taking every single shot than anyone else on this team.

Good job Magic. Hawks play better at home anyway. Meltdown again tonight.

macc
05-06-2010, 10:53 PM
Good game Hawks fans. It would be frusterating watching this game for you guys. Your team played great for two quarters, as soon as they got down they went to trying to beat players 1 on 1 just like last game. If they could keep their head together these games would def be alot tighter.

I was kinda thinking about that. I didn't know if I would get shunned or not but as a Hawks fan. Do you think Crawford should be your #1 option?

The Magic is like a video game when you got everything going right that one game where you can't miss from 3 and you got the biggest dude on the court on your team too.:D Hawks just forget there is a 2nd half (has aways been like this ever since Joe was signed here, believe me.)

Good game again Magic fans, and I believe the Hawks could give them better games at home.

Crawford is hot/cold in games, but I wouldn't mind him taking the shots Joe does. But I would rather them play through Marvin, Horford, and Smith, but with Woodson it will never happen. So until then, Crawford being #1 option is fine by me. Joe has lost it. His first 3 years here, even though sucked, he knocked down the hardest shots. I don't know what happened to him the past couple years.

macc
05-06-2010, 11:12 PM
Crawford doesn't necessarily have to take more shots, but at least have the offense go through him. It seemed that he could draw the defense in at will then kick out. They should be running a pick and roll with him. I think he could get alot of players alot of easy shots.

A Crawford/Horford pick and roll would be sweet. They could run that all game and still have a chance to win. A better chance than Joe Johnson running down shot clocks and Josh Smith acting like John Stockton.

Haha ya but Joe Johson is smooth though. He just needs to let the game come to him and trust his teammates. There were a few possesions where he just dribbled the clock out. Hes not really a guy who is going to create at will

Oh don't get me wrong though, I think Joe Johnson has the sweetest shooting form in the league, but he forces it like crazy. I don't know if it's all of the hate getting to him so he tries to be like a Kobe or his contract being up so he is trying to force being better than he is. But right now Crawford is better than him. Joe just needs to calm down and pass more. Joe is the leading assist man for us, but when we had no one at PG his first couple years, he averaged crazy assists numbers for a guy like him. 5 AST a game for our leading leader sucks.

I know Magic has this in the bag. Just too good. But we could extend it at home. Gives me more games to watch. :)

I kind of know the answer to this (too much depth) but why has Bass not been playing much all year?

That has been a big debate in our forum. None of us hate Anderson. He has had alot of great games but the majority of us want to see Bass getting his min. When Bass is in the game he always produces in the time he's given. He's our mini Dwight Howard because hes extremely powerful and pounds the ball inside.

But Stan just likes to really spread the floor. That's his offense. He feels Anderson does that better than Bass which he does but its Stans style and it works. I think Bass will play more when we start playing the bigger teams, ie Boston, Cleveland, LA. So we'll see what happens.

Oh, because when I was watching Horford out there when Howard wasn't, I was thinking Bass could be that big body guy out there instead of Anderson. But I can see the offense thing of spreading the floor. It's just Bass was pretty good on the Mavs and I just didn't know why he couldn't of been that big body for when Howard is in foul trouble. But you guys are deep and I could see Bass getting mins in a Cavs series, if or should I say when it happens.:D

Ya I would def rather see Bass/Gortat on our second unit then Anderson/Gortat but it is what it is. Hopefully Bass gets more pt as the series goes on.

*Silver&Black*

Bass/Gortat would be better IMO.
