Hawks win McMillan’s debut, top Heat 94-80

A

Trae Young took over late and made sure Nate McMillan would triumph his debut as interim coach of the Atlanta Hawks.

Young scored 18 points, including 13 straight for his team in the fourth quarter, and the Hawks snapped Miami’s six-game winning streak by defeating the Heat 94-80 on Tuesday night.

John Collins scored 17 for Atlanta, which lost at Miami on Sunday and fired coach Lloyd Pierce on Monday. Kevin Huerter scored 16 for the Hawks and Clint Capela had 10 points and 17 rebounds.

“Losing Coach Pierce, we all had to do better,” McMillan said. “And that was the challenge to this team tonight. He took a hit because we didn’t do what we were supposed to be doing out there. And I thought tonight, they did better.”

Duncan Robinson and Goran Dragic each scored 14 for Miami, which missed an opportunity to get over .500 for the first time this season. Bam Adebayo scored 11 for the Heat, who shot 37% — their fourth-worst showing of the season.

“We had been trending much better offensively,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “It just was a flat offensive game. It was not a fluid game for us on that side of the floor.”Tony Snell added 11 for the Hawks.

“Ugly game, but in the end you win a lot of games giving up 80 points,” Huerter said. “Great bounceback from the last 24 hours. And now we’ve got to finish the first half of the season strong tomorrow in Orlando.”

Miami was outrebounded 47-26, by far its worst margin of the season, and was held to a season-low in points.

The Heat were again without Jimmy Butler, who missed his second consecutive match with right knee inflammation.

Miami shot 29% in the opening quarter and 36% in the half, including a 2-for-15 start from 3-point range. But by limiting Young for the second consecutive game — he had just two points by halftime and five points after three quarters — the Heat hung around, trailing 44-37 at the break and leading 66-63 going into the fourth.

Then Young got hot in the fourth, when the Heat shot just 5 for 18, and just like that what had been the NBA’s longest active winning streak entering the night was finished.

It was Miami’s lowest point total in its home building since scoring 79 versus Milwaukee on Jan. 19, 2016. The Heat were held to 85 or fewer points for the fifth time this season, by far the most in the NBA — with Butler missing four of those five games.

“Defenses are going to be disruptive and do different things to try to guard us,” Robinson said. “But there are always counters and ways to be effective. We just have to find solutions.”

James, Davis lead Lakers past Hawks 107-99

Anthony Davis scored 25 points and LeBron James dominated down the stretch as the Los Angeles Lakers closed out a nearly two-week trip with a 107-99 triumph over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.

The Lakers took control with a 16-0 run bookended around the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth.

Atlanta rallied, closing to 98-97 on Trae Young’s 3-pointer. But James responded with a 3 of his own from the top of the key, came up with a huge block at the other end on Clint Capela, and finished off the Hawks with a layup off a pass Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

James tacked on four straight free throws to seal the win. He concluded with 21 points after managing only nine through the first three quarters. Young led the Hawks with 25 points and 16 assists.

Los Angeles went 5-2 while playing seven road matches in 12 days, certainly looking like the fresher team in the closing minutes versus the Hawks.

Atlanta appeared to be taking control, ripping off eight straight points late in the third for a 76-70 lead. But the Lakers stifled that run, scoring the final five points of the period, and followed with an 11-0 outburst to start the fourth quarter.

James and Kyle Kuzma hit 3-pointers and Alex Caruso finished off the run with a dunk, pushing the Lakers to the first double-digit lead for either team to that point.

In a brutal start to the fourth, the Hawks missed three consecutive shots, Danilo Gallinari committed two turnovers, and Bruno Fernando was whistled for an offensive foul. Davis went 10 of 14 from the field for the Lakers. Montrezl Harrell added 19 points, while James had nine assists.

Durant’s 32 points lead Nets past Young, Hawks 132-128 in OT

Kevin Durant scored 32 points and James Harden had 31 to lead a productive night for Brooklyn’s big three scorers and the Nets defeated the Atlanta Hawks 132-128 in overtime on Wednesday night.

Harden added 15 assists and eight rebounds. Kyrie Irving scored 26 points for Brooklyn.

Trae Young had 28 points and 14 assists for Atlanta. Cam Reddish scored a season-high 24 points while John Collins and De’Andre Hunter each had 21 points.

Durant’s dunk gave the Nets a 127-121 lead in the extra period. After Young made one of two free throws to trim Brooklyn’s lead to 129-126, Durant’s turnover with 40 seconds left gave Atlanta an opening. Hunter missed a long jumper that would have tied the game.

Harden stretched the lead by sinking two free throws with 4.6 seconds remaining.

Durant’s 3-pointer tied the match at 106 in regulation before Kevin Huerter quickly answered with a 3 for Atlanta.

Following a foul by Young, Harden’s two free throws with 2:41 remaining gave Brooklyn a 112-111 lead. Collins’ three-point play gave Atlanta the lead before Irving’s short jumper tied the game at 114-all.

Following a missed jumper by Reddish, Jeff Green’s layup gave the Nets a 116-114 lead. A layup by Reddish tied the game again before Harden missed a 3-foot shot with less than a second remaining.

After scoring only two points in the opening period, Harden passed up a scoring opportunity on the Nets’ first possession of the second quarter. He then looked toward the Nets bench, gestured in a shooting motion and then nodded as if to confirm he should have taken the shot.

Harden made a 3-pointer to spark his scoring spree. He scored 16 points in the second period. The Hawks called a timeout about three minutes into the period after Harden’s step-back 3 over Huerter.

Cleveland Cavaliers At Atlanta Hawks Game 3

Cleveland Cavaliers At Atlanta Hawks Game 3

The Cleveland Cavaliers made 25 threes, on game 2 against the Atlanta Hawks, the most in NBA history for a game, playoff or regular-season.

The Cavaliers broke several long distance records during the contest. The Cavs made 18 3-pointers in the first half and added seven more after halftime to embarrass the Hawks, who have lost 10 straight postseason games to Cleveland.

It was inevitable that The Cavaliers would be making history on this night. It was just a matter of when. The postseason record was eclipsed after Kyrie Irving hit back-to-back threes with 5:06 remaining in the third quarter, giving his team 22. They went into the final quarter with that amount.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks meet Friday night for game 3 at the Phillips Arena.

The Cleveland Cavaliers can pretty much put this series to bed by winning here and taking a 3-0 lead. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 106.8 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 95.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting.

The Atlanta Hawks need a victory here in order to have any shot of getting back in this series. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 99.3 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 98.8 points on 40.2 percent shooting.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking for sixth straight playoffs win at tonight’s Game #2 against the Atlanta Hawks.

Atlanta Hawks (52-37) at Cleveland Cavaliers (62-25)
NBA Basketball: Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 8:00 pm (Quicken Loans Arena)The Line: Cleveland Cavaliers -7.5

The Cavaliers jumped out to a big lead in Game 1 and needed a late surge to hold off the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA Eastern Conference semifinal.

The Cleveland Cavs have not dominated opponents from beginning to end in most of their playoff games this year, but their finishing ability has been stronger than any team in the East so far.

The Atlanta Hawks found that out the hard way Monday in a 104-93 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 1 of their second-round NBA playoff series. The Cavs covered as a 7.5-point home favorite and is listed as seven-point chalk for Game 2.

Atlanta Hawks (51-36) at Boston Celtics (50-37)
NBA Basketball: Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 8:00 pm (TD Garden)
The Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics collide in Game 6 tonight at the TD Garden.

The Boston Celtics have lost all three of their away games to the Atlanta Hawks in their first-round playoff series and will try to return the favor by winning their third straight at home in Game 6 on Thursday.

Despite the fact that the Celtics won Games 3 and 4 by a combined 17 points, they are still listed as two-point underdogs for Game 6 at sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark after a 110-83 defeat in Game 5 at Atlanta.

The Celtics looked to have all of the momentum after levelling the series in Game 4, but the Celtics just couldn’t get it going at all in Game 5 and suffered a 110-83 defeat to the Hawks. Evan Turner scored 15 points while Jae Crowder, Jared Sullinger and Marcus Smart all chipped in with 10 points each, but what the Celtics desperately needed was one more big game from Isaiah Thomas who scored just seven points in the game before leaving with a mild ankle sprain. Initially it was thought that Thomas would miss this game but the word is that he will indeed suit up tonight for the Celtics in this must-win game.

The Hawks have covered the spread just twice in the series so far, with both times coming in easy double-digit wins at home. The latest came Tuesday, as they trailed Boston 20-15 at the end of the first quarter but outscored the team 74-42 over the second and third to take control.

The Hawks must have been a little worried after squandering their 2-0 series lead, but in the comfort of their own building they regrouped to put together one of their best shooting displays to blow away the Celtics in the second and third quarters where they outscored them by an amazing 74-42. Mike Scott led the scoring with 17 points off the bench while Kent Bazemore and Jeff Teague chipped in with 16 points each. Paul Millsap scored just 10 points after pouring in 45 in Game 4 while Al Horford finished with just six points, but neither player was required to play their usual minutes as this game was over before the fourth quarter.

In what has become a competitive first-round playoff series in the Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Hawks hope to use their home court to regain an edge against the Boston Celtics in Game 5 on Tuesday.

The Boston Celtics can take control of this series by winning their third straight game and taking a 3-2 lead.

The Celtics are allowing 27.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.3 rebounds per game. The Boston Celtics have lost five of their last seven road games. Kelly Olynyk is questionable with a shoulder injury.

Boston won Game 4 in overtime 104-95 on Sunday, covering the spread as a one-point home underdog and overcoming a monster 45-point performance from Atlanta power forward Paul Millsap, who connected on 19 of 31 shots from the field and also grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds.

 Atlanta is a bigger favorite in Game 5 than either Game 1 or Game 2 at Philips Arena, as the team has failed to cover the spread in three of the first four overall. The lone cover for the Hawks came in Game 2 when they won 89-72 as 6.5-point favorites on the NBA betting lines.

The Atlanta Hawks hope to continue the trend of the home team winning every game in this series.

Atlanta Hawks vs Brooklyn Nets

Atlanta Hawks vs Brooklyn NetsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Southeast Division meets the Atlantic Division in this clash as the Atlanta Hawks travel to the Barclays Center to face the Brooklyn Nets in the National Basketball Association.

To be played on November 17, 2015, the match is on 7:30 PM ET.

Thee Atlanta Hawks are going to be minus a couple of key players for Tuesday’s clash in Brooklyn with the Nets. After suffering an injury against the Utah JazzKent Bazemore joins Jeff Teague on a list of injured Hawks.

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

The Hawks announced Bazemore’s status Monday afternoon, ruling him out of Tuesday’s contest:

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Kent Bazemore suffered a right ankle injury in last night’s game against the Utah Jazz. X-rays performed at Philips Arena last night were negative. A follow-up MRI and examination this afternoon at the Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic confirmed a right ankle sprain. Bazemore will be listed as out (NWT) for tomorrow’s game at Brooklyn and his status will be updated as appropriate.

With Jeff Teague out, a game that might have otherwise been an easy win for the Hawks is now much more of a challenge.

The Hawks started the season as the hottest team in the Eastern Conference, but since winning seven straight they’ve lost three of their last four and their last two overall. Paul Millsap scored a game-high 28 points while Kent Bazemore and Al Horford chipped in with 16 points each but the Hawks missed on the game-winner when Millsap’s last-second 3-pointer hit the rim, dropping the Hawks to 8-4 on the season. Dennis Schroder scored 11 points and nine assists in a rare start as Jeff Teague sat out with a sore left ankle.
