Lowe: Fear old-school Rose

The dynamic version of Derrick Rose has returned. And Bulls' opponents should be very afraid.

J.R. Smith swishing shots of redemption

Cavs newcomer J.R. Smith set the tone before the ball was tipped in Game 3. His special flair is being embraced as endearing rather than dubious.

Can YOU fix the NBA Draft?

The NBA draft could use some serious fixing. It's your turn to help.

Hawks storm back without Korver's help

Kyle Korver hasn't made a 3-pointer yet in 23 minutes of action. He's made at least three 3-pointers in 7 straight playoff games, the longest streak in NBA postseason history.

Hawks run out to lead
MLB 

Atlanta goes on a 9-0 run to take the lead over the Nets with under 4 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. DeMarre Carroll has 19 points to match his total from the first two games of the series combined. Follow live

Teague just had Kyle Korver wide open on the right side with Boggie still down on the other end. Missed him entirely. Bad game at PG for ATL

Atlanta's valuable shares

The Hawks struggled shooting in the first half. They shot 2-of-16 in 1-on-1 situations compared to 13-of-24 on attempts that came directly from a pass.

Kevin Arnovitz @kevinarnovitz

Schroder has been atrocious. One bad decision after another. Sins of commission & omission (e.g. passed up great look from close range).

Half: Nets 47, Hawks 40

The Nets led by as many as 15 in the first quarter but Atlanta chipped away in the second. Brooklyn forced 11 turnovers and Brook Lopez almost has a double-double already (9 points, 8 rebounds). Box score

Sterling tapes leaked 1 year ago

Today marks the anniversary of the leak of Donald Sterling's racist rant. Since that day, Sterling has been banned from the NBA for life and his team has been sold. How Clippers moved on

Fisher: Be like Brad
NBA 

Knicks coach Derek Fisher is a big fan of Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "I think Brad kind of has that feel where most of the work is already done and he's allowing the guys to go out and play the game. That's kind of the way I feel. That will be my style going forward."

Hawks can't find the range
NBA 

The Hawks are just 2-for-14 on shots outside of the paint so far today -- and both makes are by DeMarre Carroll. His teammates are just 7-for-27 from the field as the Nets have pushed out to a 10-point lead midway through the second quarter.

NBA 

Kevin Arnovitz @kevinarnovitz

Hawks turn the ball over 5 times, go 6-21 from field, get to the line for only 4 FTA, overhelp on D. Other than that, fine. BKN 31, ATL 16
