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.

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

Fisher: Be like Brad

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."

LeBron shot has to be seen to be believed

LeBron James made a full-court shot at practice today like it was a casual game of catch at the park.


Hawks can't find the range

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.

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

Mark your calendars for May 2

There's a lot more going on next Saturday than just Mayweather-Pacquiao.


Nets' starters came to play

Brooklyn's starters scored 29 of the team's 31 points in a scorching first quarter as it leads 31-16 after one. The Hawks made just 1 of their first 8 shots and finished the quarter shooting under 30% from the field. Follow live

Mike Mazzeo @MazzESPN

The whole get off to a fast start thing has been achieved. #Nets up 16-5 and playing solid D. ATL just 2-for-10 to start.
