Hawks do something that hasn't been done in 11 years

Hawks do something that hasn't been done in 11 years

Postby JSM on Fri Mar 12, 2004 9:25 pm

The Hawks held their first entertaining game, since the days of Deke, Smith, and Mookie.

The Hawks beat the Wizards. The final score was 138-124. Five of the Hawks scored 20+ points, this hasn't been done since 1993 by the Magic (Tom Tolbert, Scott Skiles, Shaq, Anthony Bowie and Nick Anderson).

Stephen Jackson scored 42 points, a career high. 31 of those points came in the second half. Sura scored 28 points, JT dropped 23 points, Jason Collier scored 22 points (a career high) and Chris Crawford scored 20.

Not only that, but they broke Sacramento's scoring record for this season...thats gotta be insane if you're a Hawk fan....and they did it at their arena, I wonder if their fans got into it, and they didn't even use overtime...the both teams averaged out about 32 points a quarter therefore...

But you know, when you got lousy scrub teams that play no D this might just happen...I mean, Washington shot 54% and still lost, but Atlanta, led by Stephen the Duck Jackson, just went hellbent with destruction. He scored 42, and the guy's been known his streaky shot. It was his night, and he had many supplements for it...can you believe Chris Crawford? This is a injury-ladened guy throughout his career...and in all due seriousness, hes now contributing. JSM, those Hawks have to better than you think...its like a cultivating place for scrubs and players who can't find their niche in the league...

speaking of those players, one of them is Bob Sura...even though is shooting mechanic is awful, you've gotta think about him...I recently started an inspirational article about Bob Sura and he had to suffer all of those bruises yet he's happy to be in such a losing team. The man, in fact, nearly got a triple double--28 points, 9 rebs and 10 assists off the bench--remember the times when people thought that Sura was gonna be a star? Hes finally shining. At least the players now show some pride in being able to contribute, since Shareef and Theo wanted out--they've been in hell too long. But Atlanta needed a trade--which they got, and now they've got new management. This feels like the Clippers--its a new day in Atlanta, the lousiest team breaking a record, and they've got to feel good about themselves for doing so.

Last comment-- Jason Collier. A guy waived by the Rockets because, according to them, he wasn't acting like a 7 footer, and he was lazy and all that. A bust for a 15th pick.But he finally did something, he hardly missed anything, guess people do find their niche in Atlanta. Hopefully this will draw up more fans for them.

Finally we have a high-scoring NBA game (on both sides), and both teams are EASTERN! Life is :man10: sometimes.

I think they were inspired to play so well, since the NBA approved the sale of the Hawks today. This means a new owner and a new way of doing things. And a new GM and coach will be on there way next season.

Collier is tearing it up in ATL for some reason or another, I guess he wants to show teams he deserves to be in the league and not in the NBDL (where he was, before the Hawks called upon him). He had 16 points on the 8th against the Cavs, then 11 points on the 10th against the Bucks, and then tonight, 22 points.

I think the Hawks are the new Minor League for the NBA. A place for players to come work on their game, get some recognition, and then get out of there as soon as possible. Just take a look at some of these guy's stats since joining the Hawks- Jackson, Crawford (since the big trade), Przybilla, Sura, Collier, Person, and Rebraca-all of them have been playing great for some reason or another, since coming to Atlanta.

They can get anyone that want in the draft, but it's still not gonna get them in the playoffs or make them a great team.

They need two big franchise players. Now all they got in Terry is a role player and Jackson another role player who should get 40 points on 30 shots like he's supposed to.
