Hawks are 2-0 vs. Kings tonight. GO HAWKS!

They have looked really good.  Dwight doesn't hurt their offense and he damn sure helps their defense.  I'm still not sure what to make of Schroeder as a starting PG, but they could use some better depth behind him.

Dwight has 13 rpg and 3 bpg. That works for me. He got 19 rebounds in the opener. He's the first true center we've had since we got Horford.

Schroeder at 12.5 ppg and 6.5 apg is going to have to improve. That's not going to cut it. You're right, we have no depth at PG, Schroeder is going to have to be the man.

Check that, we have Delaney who is averaging 6 ppg and 4.5 apg, not bad coming off the bench.

Not a huge fan.  And be careful with just pulling stats, they've only played two games and one of them was a blowout against one the worst teams in the league.

Yeah, you're right. I just don't know any other way of explaining it on here. I still don't think the Hawks will be as good as last year. Losing Horford and Teague for Howard and Schroeder is going to hurt in the long run.

Right now Horford isn't doing all that great in Boston. But it's still to early to call.

I think getting Howard was a plus, but losing Teague for Schroeder is still a toss up.

Pretty happy with the Bulls so far.
Our Batman,
Who art in Batcave,
Bruce Wayne be thy name.
Thy Wayne Manor come, thy justice be done,
In Arkham as it is in Blackgate.
And give us this day our daily Nightwing,
And beat down the Joker,
As Robin beats down Two Face,
Who trespasses against us.
And lead us not into Crime Alley,
But deliver us from Joe Chill.
Amen.

Yeah, he's not the type to blow you away with numbers, and he also has issues defending the rim/hitting the boards, something the Celtics already had issues with.

You should be.  They crushed the Pacers, a team that I think has one of the better rosters in the entire NBA.  Doug McDermott can't shoot it like that all year, but he should play a key role in opening things up for that bench unit/the starters that he plays with.  D Wade needs to stay healthy, he still has a lot left in the tank, hopefully Hoiberg and he are on the same page when it comes to rest.

I agree. The Celtics have a lot of potential. But like B_lake said, they need a rim protector and they will be set.

Marcin Gortat is a good player but the problem is that the talent level of the NBA is just as good as he is.

Most of the pure talent is a lot better than he is.  He gets most of his thanks to size and effort.

True. In Poland where he's from he is the best player by far. But not in the NBA. No, sir.
