Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks

 

 

Ersan Ilyasova (calf) is probable to play in Monday's Game 4 against the Wizards. He should continue to flirt with close to 20 minutes off the bench, but he won't be making a major impact on the box score with Paul Millsap healthy.

Hawks owner Tony Ressler made it clear that re-signing Paul Millsap this offseason is a priority. "We are going to make every effort imaginable to keep him," Ressler said. This isn't the first time we've heard this from the Hawks, but it will likely take a max deal to keep the 32-year-old All Star in Atlanta. The Hawks explored the idea of trading him around the turn of the new year to avoid losing him for nothing this summer, but pulled him off the market right before the trade deadline. The Hawks had to let Al Horford walk as a free agent last summer, so we'll see if they have better luck with Millsap.

Paul Millsap torched the Wizards during the Game 3 116-98 victory, scoring 29 points with 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in just 33 minutes. After battling through a knee injury earlier this month, it's safe to say he is back with this gem and a 27-point, 10-board game in Game 2. As great as the outing was, all the talk will be about how Markieff Morris called Millsap a "crybaby" on top of all the MMA talk leading up to this game. When Millsap found out about the comment, he had a little trash talk of his own. "I don't care. So what? Take his loss and go back to the hotel," Millsap said. The Hawks are about inconsistent as it gets for these playoff teams, but they sure can get hot in a hurry. All eyes will continue to be on the Millsap-Morris battle.

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks

 

 

Dennis Schroder scored 27 points with two rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday. Coach Mike Budenholzer said he wanted Schroder to be more like Kawhi Leonard and try to avoid the trash talk, but it's going to be really tough for him now. When Schroder found out that Markieff Morris called Paul Millsap a crybaby, Schroder had a hilarious reaction to the comment (video in link below). He plays with a lot of confidence and he'll likely have a little more after this game.

Taurean Prince    F  Hawks

 

 

Coach Mike Budenholzer said he is sticking with the same starting lineup of Dennis Schroder, Tim Hardaway Jr., Taurean Prince, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard for Game 3 on Saturday. The starters have been really bad in this series, turning in a -35.3 net rating in their 28 minutes together. The next most-used lineup is just at eight minutes in the two games, so the Hawks still have a lot of adjustments to make. Plus, Dwight Howard has been disappointing in this series.

Howard scored six points (3-5 FG) with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 109-101 Game 2 loss to the Wizards.
