    Trae just took over the last two minutes of the half.

    Let PG shoot as much as he wants is a great strategy

    We are getting whatever we want in the lane. Trae is going wherever he wants on the court

    Had Trae 5+ threes and a Hawks win at +3015. So close.

    We get to trade Rondo for Lou WIll and get picks?

    Hell yeah and stimulate that Magic City economy

    The LAC loss was basically on Rondo. He was so fucking bad when he came in for Trae. Like he didn't even care.

    Our bench unit with Lou Will, Bogi, and Gallo

    Fire power

    And this performance convinced them they just had to trade for him? So odd.

    Obviously our roster is built with a strong lean toward pick and roll because of Trae/John/etc

    Rondo is basically unable to run the P and R.

    Lou Will is an elite pick and roll scorer. Now Gallo can pick and pop, Knight/OO can roll to the rim and you can have secondary actions with Bogie, Huerter, etc.

    to not get killed when Trae sits will be amazing.

    hated the Rondo signing immediately when it happened. Glad Shlenk saw the error and got stuff for it

    I agree. But they probably are just hoping for playoff rondo in LA. He didn’t give a shit in Atlanta.

    Halfway through the west coast swing 2-2 and should be 4-0.

    collins was amazing last night.

    schedule is real soft after this road trip.

    Collins out
    Hunter still not comfortable on the knee
    Reddish in a boot still
    Dunn hasn’t played a snap

    this is a catastrophic season all together

    If the Hawks drop it in overtime after the Braves lost in extras I'm going to go to bed really upset.

    Well then GOOD NEWS!

    Holy shit what a game, Trae completely took that game over in OT. Everyone out there has to be exhausted.

    I love Trae but he and Huerter were pure shit at the end of regulation. Trae needs playoff experience and needs to be put in a high stakes meat grinder.

    glad we won. New Orleans will name their score tomorrow night

    This has to be a very impressive win right? I know Zion isn't playing, but basically half the starting unit for the Hawks tonight were bench players and they are blowing out the Pelicans.

    4-4 on the road trip with all the injuries is really incredible.

    tied for fifth in the East

    If we can get lucky with injuries for a fn month we would be out of the playin tournament comfortably

    Rathburn just said the Pelicans were down four starters so this was definitely their second unit as well, still this means they end this grueling road trip 4-4.

    Capella does an insane amount of work every night, he almost had a double-double after the first quarter.

    We had a line up of

    Lou
    Bogie
    Snell
    Gallo
    Capella

    and it was amazing to see 5 vets who just know how to fn play.

    man if we ever get healthy for like 6 weeks

    Tony Snell is so damn solid at what he does.

    Gallo punishes small defenders

    and Bogie has been unlocked by Nate Bc Lloyd was using him as catch and shoot.

    That’s the biggest takeaway from tonight. We don’t have to turn to a bench of Vince Carter and guys that can legally order a beer. A bunch of solid vets ready to go.

    Everyone in the offseason needs to get bionic knees and ankles since half of them are going to have those injuries next season.

    Capella has to be one of the most underrated players in the league. He has been fantastic this year.

    Our center position has been dominated for decades. Glad to have a guy that competes.
