    Default Hawks are giving the Pistons some trouble.

    Hawks lead by 5 at halftime. Pistons were able to cut what was a 10-12 deficit to 5 just before halftime.

    Pacers aren't the only team, to struggle with the Hawks.

    Prince and Okur are both having bad games, if not for Corless, it might be 15 point deficit.

    My only beef with Larry Brown is that he does not force the ball inside to Okur enough. Plain and simple, he is a VERY skilled offensive center, and when we struggle to score, the common trend is that Okur is not touching the ball.

    If we actually made him a legit option on offense, he'd be a 17/9 guy.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Stephen Jackson's having a good game for my fantasy team. Without Williamson, Detroit would be screwed in this game.

    82-71 Hawks, with Big Ben going to the line for 2.

    Pistons are trying to come back but can't get ANYTHING going.

    86-73 Hawks, with 4:07 left, and this game is in Detroit.

    I give up. This team NEEDS Rasheed Wallace. I'm SO sick and tired of guys moving the ball around and passing up open shot after open shot. We need someone with some freaking GUTS that will take shots. Ben Wallace is the most offensively aggressive player on the team.

    We're a joke. A bunch of passers, nobody with the balls to actually take a shot.

    Hawks up 13 with 2 minutes left. All but over now.

    Makes that loss last night for us feel a little better. Well, not really.

    Hey the Pacers laid an egg yesterday, it happens in the league. The Hawks had a smart game plan letting Wallace do whatever he wants offensively and containing everybody else.

    Also how are you guys getting Sheed without giving up any of your core players; Ben, Billups, Hamilton, Okur, or Darko? I think that's impossible.

    Honestly, I dont care. Trade anyone not named Darko or Ben Wallace. I'm sick of all the nice guys that refuse to carry any weight.

    I'd take the Hawks roster over ours in a hearbeat, minus Ben.

    Don't worry about it. Teams go through this crap. We lost to washington....i think that qualifies as worse

    It's amazing. As hot as the Pacers, Pistons, and Kings have been, they have all combined to lose 7 straight games in the last few days.

    What? JO DIDN'T develop until he came here. At least not noticably. Or are you referring to his claim that he was always this good, which is absurd to me.

    Will Detroit go with a five year plan in regards to Darko?

    That's next year. This year is garbage time only. 18-year-old big men just can't compete with NBA post players.

    Eh, Darko has an ego that FAR surpasses Anthony's. Once Darko starts getting serious PT next season, that won't be an issue.

    I just wish I could give some of that ego to Tayshaun Prince, whohas all the freaking ability in the world but chooses never to use it.
