Watching the Atlanta Hawks go into Charlotte and take out the Bobcats, again, reminds of how far the Atlanta Hawks franchise has come in 10 years and how they've certainly moved forward since the arrival of Danny Ferry and, now, head coach Mike Budenholzer.
And now, Quick Thoughts, brace thy selves:
- Competence, they name is Hawks
- Shelvin Mack Attack
- Kyle Korver -- for three
- Al Horford: Boss
- Mike Scott takes all your shots
- Elton Brand still has it
- Jeff Teague may have leveled up
- Shooter Alert!
Nice to know that, should Kyle Korver or John Jenkins be off with their shot, that Cartier Martin might be able to go off instead. Cartier got hot with three 3-pointers and helped the Hawks push through to the lead, scoring 16 points on seven shots.
It was also nice to see Jenkins and Korver (and combinations of shooters with Martin, too) on the floor at the same time because, gosh, that's a lot of shooting power. But I was disappointed that the team didn't gash the Bobcats in that alignment, instead saw other non-bombers like Scott shooting threes. Guys, when the shooters are on the floor, gash the D and score, score, score!
