don’t look now….

but after rattling off an overtime victory last night against shaq and the miami heat, the hawks are now 1 game above .500.

the win extends the hawks winning streak to three games and a quick look at the nba standings show the hawks with a clear route to the playoffs.

i tried to tell you, i tried to tell you again.

do you believe yet?

    I believe.

    What’s with that injury to Alonzo Mourning, though? Maybe that end of the court is cursed. First TJ Ford, now Mourning.

    So you’re saying TJ Ford wasn’t Al Horford’s fault afterall :P

    Anyhoo, it’s easy to say “a clear route to the playoffs” in December, come back in March/April and see if it’s the same, but that said, the Eastern Conference, and indeed the Southeast Division, is so weak they will prolly back into the playoffs. They’d get creamed and smeared in the West

    Just wait. The collapse will come. Best case scenario – they’ll almost make the playoffs this years, you’ll spend all off season hoping they make the changes to get over the hump next year, and then they stink all over again.

    alright, greg, fair enough, but give some credit where credit is due. for this franchise to even be THINKING playoffs at the end of december and to be one game above .500 is huge progress. and maybe they will get creamed by the west, but i watched them take down the mavs and the suns. i think on a good night this team is capable of beating anyone but the celtics.

    oh, ben. you are so cynical.
