Hopefully, someone was able to recover the ankles of LaMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum from the Philips Arena floor Friday night after Jeff Teague made this move that was simply unfair.
The Hawks beat the Portland Trail Blazers 105-99 to extend their franchise-long winning streak to 18 games. That bodes well for them because 70 percent of the teams who have won 18 games in a row or more have gone on to win a championship.
The Hawks now have the best record in the NBA, sitting at 39-8 as of Saturday morning. They have a commanding 7-game lead in the Eastern Conference and will be sending three players to the All-Star Game – Teague, Al Horford and Paul Millsap.
Keep on rolling, Hawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwks.
