(SL) – The great comeback indeed! The Hawks were phenomenal against the Wizards during game 3 of the playoffs. After falling 0-2 and determined to get their MMA skills up, it looks like Atlanta came ready to battle. John Wall didn’t have much help making it an easier win than anticipated. Post Game with Atlanta’s ball master and the golden kid as they talk about resetting the series and leaving their mark on Washington.

(SL) – The Atlanta Hawks weren’t playing any games Sunday against the Indiana Pacers. The Hawks came out swinging and never looked back. After jumping out early and allowing the Pacers to make a little bit of a run heading into halftime, they still managed to sit comfortably ahead by 14 (52-38) at the halfway mark. And then the 3rd quarter came and Atlanta went on a 20-0 run and it was officially over. Continued good play from Thabo Sefolosha who was one shot from being perfect from the field and Kris Humphries who continues to help the Hawks solidify its 2nd unit defense also helped push the Hawks to victory. Just to give you an idea of how good Atlanta was they had 15-3s, 50 rebounds and assists all of which hint at the accuracy, good ball movement and board domination that was executed by the Hawks.
Post Game Coverage: I caught up with Thabo and Paul to discuss some of those key points.
