FROM THE 90S, WHEN PUNK RULED SUPREME, IT'S THE CIRCLE JERKS WITH 'I WANNA DESTROY YOU'. DO IT!

⑧Atlanta's Recent Woes⑧
Chemistry and Momentum
VS Chicago, Atlanta finished 32 of 80 (40 percent) from the field, looking very much like a weary team playing for the fourth time in five nights. Teague had 13 points and eight assists, while Johnson was held to 12 points - well off his team-leading 19.1 average.
"We couldn't get anything going," Smith said. "We were trying to create some kind of energy, some kind of momentum. It was hard to generate."
Johnson said the grueling schedule wasn't the only problem.
"Sometimes, we're not so disciplined," he said. "It seems like there's a few guys who don't know their roles on this team. We do a lot of things that don't help us."
Joe Johnson has shot very poorly over the Hawks' long stretch. He will be looking to get his rhythm back in a must win for Atlanta VS our beloved Knicks.
Who you gonna call?
The Hawks defend the perimeter well, and constantly hold their opponent to a low % shooting night from the arc.
As we probably all know, the Hawks look to run, and are deadly in the open court. Teague and Smith have combined for many run-out points this season.
Though up and down, the Hawks often lean upon their interior early in games. They fight hard defensively behind Pachulia, and are disruptive in the paint.
Key to Victory.
Interior presence. Pachulia will have his hands full VS Chandler. Za Za is renowned for his pestering approach, and Chandler will have to keep cool as he attempts to nullify ATL's inside presence.
Defend the perimeter. Johnson, Smith are highly capable shot creators. If we allow either to find rhythm early, then we'll have set an offensive tone for our opponent.
Once again, we will rely on defense under Woodson to see our adversary off.
Stop That ****er!
Averaging 22 & 10 since the ASG, Smith is unquestionably the Hawks' key contributor on both ends.
The Starting 五
SUBJECT TO CHANGE
It's believed that if Shump wanted to, he could hold down Dolan and give him a red belly.
When he rides the exercise bike, elderly woman squirt in their bloomers. 'Tis true.
Some say he once had a vicious knife fight with Mike Breen's doppleganger
Has finally realized that D'Antoni is a homeless fag pooper.
The Man Handler
Some say he isnít machine washable, and all his potted plants are called Steve...
knicksonline.com Poster In The Spotlight!
Has been doing exceptionally well. Good thread making, big-time Knick fan.
For those that remember He-Man! I'm so ****ing old.
It's not going to be as easy as tonight's blowout against Orlando but Knicks should still win this game easily.
This team has been playing amazing basketball since Woody took over. They've been playing up to their potential.
Baron is too old. He can't handle the minutes. Come back soon, Lin, from your Linjury.
Bibby is too old. WTF did he do to warrant the minutes Woody is giving hm?
JR is too iso-happy. Woody has to remind him there are four other teammates on the floor.
Team needs to stop partying on off-days, especially on Thursday nights. Haven't they learned their lesson in Toronto?
1. An injured BD, slow and ineffective
2. Laundry Folded. (Please start Shump)
3. Early turnovers. Thats a no no, and an indictment on BD
4. Poor Bench scoring (Where's my Novakane?!?)
5. Poor shooting decisions by JR
6. Missed FT's.
Thats not bad. Laundry Folds gets replaced by Shump. Lin returns, or gets an MRI. Melo stays on fire. JJ returns.
