I loooove pistol pete. I think he has to be the top hawks draft pick, at least since they've been in Atlanta. Shame he died so young (and just like he said too).Trae Bae Young or is it spelled Trey? He had about 4 of those, several just inside or on the line, plus 7 rebounds and 11 assists. Have the Hawks ever had a better draft selection work out? My mother dated Pistol Pete when she worked for Cystic Fibrosis at Lenox(met him doing charity work for them in 1971). Maravich was the 3rd selection in the 1st round, so I’m clearly biased having spent time with him personally.
Has Bogi fully recovered from his injury? Can you imagine having Hunter & Reddish right now?

Bogi played ~27 minutes, but was looking pretty stiff and had problems with his jump. But Reddish warmed up last night!
Honestly, if we had Hunter I'd be making some pretty decent bets on the hawks for the championship.
I think it was Lopez that was actually the difference between those two games. There were a couple of times where he was guarding ****ing Trae Young on the perimeter and getting turnovers. Had a few key blocks and 3s. Also only allowed Capela to get 2 points. The dude played out of his mind. Part of it was having Giannis + Lopez, but Lopez was a completely different player.Do you guys think that Giannis Alphabet City, when guarding Trae was the difference in upsetting his game the rest of the way? Philly did it, with a disguise box and one, having Embiid come out on him at times, in upsetting the flow in a few of their wins. So how does Nate counteract having to watch Huerter or Williams running the isolated offense with Young covered up in the corner or 30 feet out front?
Yes, we need to hit more shots outside, and find away to get chippies without relying on Trae for every scooping runner in the lane.
This is good. My impression of the Bucks has skyrocketed during the playoffs. They're good.Tough loss. Didn't close out the 2nd or 4th quarters. Ball game.
And I don't like the 10-second count "rule" but, if it's a rule, they have to actually call it. I understand they don't want to "cave" to the crowd and I also get the crowd's count was fast. But the dude held the ball past 10 seconds multiple times. It's a stupid rule and it's a gimmicky thing, but it is what it is.
That's not the reason they lost, of course.
Only bright spots were Bogdan finally showing signs of life. He actually looked like he could move, which is improvement. Too bad his shot's not falling. His contributions are missed, greatly.
Huerter continues to be a bright spot, on both ends, which is a surprise.
I would've liked to have seen Reddish brought in to stick him on Middleton. He's not fully ready, of course, but his length and defensive prowess could've kept the dude from going completely nuclear.
Last but, certainly not least, I hope Trae's not hobbled. I'm sure opposing fans find it funny that the ref's the one that got him. Since, of course, opposing fans still think the only reason he's good is because the refs aid him.
