Blogging With the Enemy: Bullets Forever

Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Shaun Livingston, a player who the Hawks liked in 2004, could have had for nothing after his injuries, and is now playing good ball with Wizards as his 27, 6, and 7 game last night in the road win over the Celtics drove home.

Game Preview: The Hawks are now in the fabled catbird's seat for the third seed with last night's 50th win over the Raptors (well, not 50 over Toronto--they were the 50th) and the C's blowing it at home against this same Wizards franchise. Or maybe Boston doesn't want to play Miami, who are now in 6th after falling behind the Bucks (and MIL has the tie-breaker). Oh, the tangled NBA web!

Keys to the game: Depending on which P-Hoops commenter you're dialed into, it could be either coming out with good health, more than (4) minutes of playing time for Jeff Teague, less than (8) seconds of playing time for Randolph Morris and Mario West, or keep on winning getting momentum going into the playoffs. With any strategy, I believe everyone agrees that focus is the Hawks greatest goal.

See you in the game thread!
