The Bad Larry Drew comes out again

Here are my bullet points from Game 5:

1. I loved our energy. This was the first time I saw us play a playoff game the way we should every day

2. We battled early and recovered despite their hot shooting. It was good to see us battle back and even briefly take the lead in the 4th. Read the full story

NBA ref admits he blew call on inadvertent whistle. I ask why?

bennett salvatoreWhy did Bennett Salvatore feel the need to review and comment specifically about only this call. Granted, it was an odd sequence but there were quite a few non calls going against Atlanta which he did not comment on.  I agree it is rare to see an inadvertent whistle call but it was not clear that it was a foul. Look closely and you see both Derrick Rose and Jamal Crawford initially try to avoid contact, backing away from each other. Crawford lands, at which point Rose jumps into him. That is a no call. If Crawford had been in the air when Rose jumped into him I could see the argument but he had already landed and was stationary so at best, you could argue a no call and if anything could have been called (but never would be), it should have been a charge.

Will the True Josh Smith Please Stand Up

The Josh Smith we love showed up for the most part. Problem is he still does not get it. I was disappointed in his post game interview. He said the fans do not understand and that he does not care because his teammates believe in him.  Does he not understand that he was not in a funk, he simply was shooting to many jumpers. He clearly needs a vocal mentor. He understood that since he was playing the 3, he needed to play like Deng but does he not realize he can do the same thing if he plays the 4?  Read the full story

Why can’t the Hawks win?

Derrick RoseThey surprised me against the Magic. I did not think they would be able to close it out. I think we have talent but I still do not like the way we play. Imagine if we had a real coach. Only a dream with the current owners.

But I look at the matchups against the Bulls and say why not. Here are the matchups as I see them.

Point Guard
I assume either Jeff Teague or Wilkins or both will play the point against Rose. Clearly Derrick Rose has the advantage. The key for Atlanta is going to be to force Rose towards the help and not let Rose go where he wants. Easier said than done. Big advantage to the Bulls.

Shooting Guard:
JJ vs Keith Bogans. The advantage the Bulls had at the point, is true for Atlanta at the 2 spot. Hopefully, Joe Johnson does not settle for jumpers and goes hard to the lane and shoots his little floater in the lane. I do not think Bogans can cover Joe Johnson and I do not think too many people can, especially since JJ can post you up, shoot distance, and drive to the lane. Read the full story
