    I told my son with about 2 minutes left in tonight's game, "I wish we had five Al Horfords to put in."

    Love them Hawks. Unsung Hero Ball.

    He played his ass off tonight. Clutch plays!

    I collect basketball cards casually, and pulled this just the other day-

    Now, if we can just get coach Bud to stop putting in Pero Antic. Muscala is a much better option.

    Yep how you forget where Horford is on that play is just beyond my ability to comprehend.

    I just wish Wall hadnt gotten hurt. No question the Wizards beat the Hawks with Wall playing every game.

    I was always had high hopes for Horford. A 4,5 who could shoot on the perimeter and move better than most 4's. I think even discounting his injuries, he hasn't lived up to his potential.

    He has all the physical attributes to be a double-double machine, especially playing in a weak conference.

    AH is a hustle machine. But his shooting is either hot or cold. And when he's cold he even misses multiple layups and gimmes.

    I think the entire team seems prone to brainfreeze.

    Al's got a big heart and he's a winner. Thank goodness we have him and DeMarre Carroll. The 2015 Hawks are in uncharted territory...somebody's got to step up and lead...I vote for Al. GO Hawks!

    You're right. I was thinking he went out early due to the hand in Game 1.

    Oh well, I'll still take 2 out of 3 games he played.

    Glad they didn't go to OT cause my heart wouldn't take it.:eeks

    The Millsap-Tristan Thompson matchup is going to be one to watch. I feel like statistically Korver's slump can't continue.

    I think the Cavs feel the pressure more, so I would give a slight edge to the Cavs.

    I feel like LeBron has more playoff games under his belt than the entire Hawks' roster.
