Atlanta Hawks: Clint Capela makes another piece of history

The Atlanta Hawks are seeing some incredible numbers from Clint Capela this season. Last game he equaled the second-longest streak of consecutive double-digit rebound games with 10. Today he broke that and now has only the 19 of Dwight Howard ahead of Capela’s 11. However, that is not the piece of history that is of […] Atlanta Hawks: Clint Capela makes another piece of history - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog

Should the Atlanta Hawks keep Solomon Hill in the rotation?

This is going to raise some rotation questions and the main one is will Solomon Hill be able to keep a place inside the rotation.

Atlanta Hawks: 3 keys to victory over the Detroit Pistons

After the start of the season where the Atlanta Hawks were flying, they have crashed back to earth.

Preview: Hawks welcome Pistons in rematch of home opener

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Much has changed in the three weeks since the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Detroit Pistons in the team’s home opener at State Farm Arena. That victory improved Atlanta’s record to 3-0 on the young season but, even after a victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on MLK Day, the Hawks are just 3-7 since knocking off the Pistons. Still, the Hawks have a chance to begin a winning streak on Wednesday and the match-up is favorable for the home team. In the first meeting on Dec. 28, seven players scored in double figures for the Hawks, including a...

Should the Atlanta Hawks trade for George HIll?

The Atlanta Hawks are struggling with their outside shot. Could George Hill, last season’s best 3-point shooter, be the answer? Over the past eight games, the Atlanta Hawks have been abysmal from outside the arc with the exception of the wins against the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves. None of their players have shot the […] Should the Atlanta Hawks trade for George HIll? - Soaring Down South - Soaring Down South - An Atlanta Hawks blog
