Moon>Horford. Fuck Horford.

The game started like a preseason game with it's sloppiness and turned into a playoff game with it's intensity. Very nice friday night action. I was satisfied.

I'm also glad that there's trashtalking and a rift between the two teams. Rivalry is a good thing, well, rivalry in a sense that both teams want to kill eachother, because record wise we own them.

They completely misuse Law at PG. Dude's a shooter/scorer and they've converted him into a robot who just brings it up and doesnt shoot off penetration, but instead stops and tries to make a standstill pass. Just stupidity.

Good win, but I still cant stand the hockey style line change in the 2nd qtrs that let the other team back in it. It's been what, 3 years now with Smitch at the helm and he still doesnt mix and match so Calderon and Bosh can get SEPERATE rests and maybe not play as many minutes with one or the other keeping our team up when the other is resting. Smitch still sucks

Yesterday the team maintained the lead with Bosh and Calderon out and if you noticed when it mattered in the second half Bosh was out there with Dixon while Jose rested.

And I'm sure he'd be better rebounding if he wasn't forced to fight off both the oppositions bigs while his fellow Raps starting big screams, "Wonder Twin Powers activate...shape of a pylon."

Bosh is going to the rack, and he is looking for it before his jumper...that is the difference...we were right to question him before. Now he is playing like we all asked him too,

Any word on whether or not Anthony Johnson gets suspended for that brutal forearm last night? :mad:

But it was obvious his knee was hurt and he didn't have the explosiveness to get to the rack, so he was settling for jumpers.

I'm watching the game again, on Rapsfan website...No-one can stop Bosh on that team. Jose is just plain good......verging on great.

Jose was so effective when he drove and worked along the baseline last night. I hope he dedicated his embarassment of Horford to TJ.

Yeah, but that doesn't say much considering who was guarding him. Anthony Johnson and Law were laughable and Joe Johnson is nothing to brag about defensively.

But yes, he's another one who needs to drive more often to draw fouls considering he's 3rd in the association for FT%.

Hawks are missing something..and I'm not sure what it is, Its seems like they have a bunch of pieces....Josh Smith, and JJ are suppose to be superstars, but as a team, they can't play defense.

It's clear as day .... the Hawks need a PG and guess what .... we have two of them.

They're actually a pretty good defensive squad (very long, atheletic and agressive)...number 7 in points allowed I think and top ten in another bunch of categories. The Raps were just that much better.
