Hawks give themselves 'Crying Jordan' treatment after Cavs' epic first half

The Atlanta Hawks gave up an NBA record 18 3-pointers in the first half of Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, becoming the first team in nearly 30 years to trail by at least 36 points at halftime of a playoff game.

The team's official Twitter account dealt with the 3-point barrage the only way possible: with a heavy dose of self-deprecating humor.

Yep, they Crying Jordan'd themselves. That's how bad things got.

Meanwhile, over on the Cavs' side of Twitter, things seemed to be going much better.
