Post ckers, for so long one of the se
(SportsNetwork.com) - The Atlanta Hawks are once again the hottest team in the NBA and theyll put a five-game winning streak on the line Friday night when the Milwaukee Bucks pay a visit to Philips Arena. The Hawks share the leagues longest current winning streak with the Chicago Bulls and are a half-game behind the Toronto Raptors for Eastern Conference supremacy. Atlanta has lost only once since Nov. 28, going 14-1 during that span. The Hawks only setback came on a buzzer-beater by Tobias Harris in a one-point loss to the Orlando Magic on Dec. 13. The Hawks fifth consecutive victory came Tuesday night with a 107-104 home win over the Los Angeles Clippers. DeMarre Carroll scored a career-high 25 points and the Hawks rallied from 13 down in the second half to beat the Clippers. Al Horford added 20 points and Paul Millsap scored 17 for the Hawks, who took the lead for good on Kyle Korvers 3-pointer a minute into the fourth quarter and held on down the stretch. During this run, the Hawks beat the Chicago Bulls at home, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks on the road, then took care of the Clips. The Hawks have won eight straight in Atlanta and moved atop the Southeast Division. We need to get better defensively, but I think in these last couple of weeks weve shown improvement, said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer. We have guys who step up every night and make big plays. But weve got a lot of work left and a long way to go. The Bucks have lost two in a row and three of four. During that time, Milwaukee has allowed an average of 106.3 ppg. and the most recent setback came Tuesday in a home loss to the Charlotte Hornets. Six Hornets scored in double figures as Charlotte pulled out a 108-101 victory. The Bucks dropped a seventh straight game to Charlotte despite a season-high 34 points from Brandon Knight. Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 12 and 11, respectively, in the loss. We didnt have any rhythm offensively, said Bucks head coach Jason Kidd. We turned the ball over, we missed a lot of shots. Everytime we tried to make a run we turned it over and when you do that, it puts you behind the 8-ball and thats what happened tonight. Milwaukee forward Ersan Ilyasova returned from a nine-game absence due to a broken nose, scoring four points in 16-plus minutes. The Hawks have owned this matchup in recent history, winning seven straight and 10 of the last 11 meetings. Atlanta has won five straight at home over the Bucks. Mike Singletary Jersey . It was just time for him to make a big play. Nicolas Batum had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Wesley Matthews scored 18 points, and the Trail Blazers overcame poor-shooting nights by two of their best players in a 94-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday. Kevin White Jersey .C. -- Theyll remember the OT from the first Syracuse-Duke game -- and the Ts that decided Round 2. http://www.bearsauthenticproshop.com/Yo ... rs-Jersey/. Rinehart joins safety Darrell Stuckey and linebacker Donald Butler as potential unrestricted free agents who are remaining with the team. Hroniss Grasu Jersey . 1. Did the Senators trade the wrong goalie? Lets make one thing clear: The Ottawa Senators acquired Ben Bishop from the St. Louis Blues for one reason and one reason alone. Markus Wheaton Jersey .K. Subban and Matt Duchene will be the two skaters sitting out the teams opening game.It didn’t quite offer up the excitement of last weekend, but week 11 in the NFL was very entertaining as six games were decided by a single score and several went right down to the wire. It was your typical NFL weekend with outstanding plays, the occasional upset, some key injuries, a record low for kickers across the league and enough intriguing results and headlines to keep us on the edge of our seats.These are just half a dozen key storylines that caught my eye on Sunday night. Cowboys look SuperThe Dallas Cowboys took the Baltimore Ravens best punches and kept on rolling, all the way to a 27-17 win that gave them their club record ninth consecutive victory. Baltimore came in with the NFLs top defence and the Cowboys were undeterred, racking up 417 yards of total offence. Ezekiel Elliott hurdles a Viking... Baltimore made it their mission to shut down Ezekiel Elliott and did a pretty good job of that in a first half in which the teams were tied at 10 apiece. But you can only contain Elliott for so long and he started to get more involved in the second half.Dak Prescott was outstanding as he threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns. He put the team on his back and delivered time and again, looking every inch the composed veteran quarterback. And more good news for the Cowboys is the fact that wide receiver Dez Bryant (six catches for 80 yards and two touchdowns) looks to be inching back to his best. Watch this poor sound guy get destroyed by the Minnesota Vikings! There is a long way to go and plenty of football still to be played, but these Cowboys have the look of a Super Bowl team. They can ride out adversity and continue to produce week in and week out - and that is a confidence thing as much as it is a physical component.

The Lions roarDont look now but here come the Detroit Lions looking to win their first NFC North division title since the days when the division went by a completely different name! The last time the Lions won their division it was the NFC Central in 1991, but they are on track after winning five of their last six.The 6-4 Lions enjoyed another typical day at the office in their 26-19 win over Jacksonville - it marked their 10th game this season decided by seven points or fewer. The only difference was that this win came without a touchdown pass from in-form quarterback Matthew Stafford. Wide receiver Andre Roberts scored a 55-yard punt return for the Detroit Lions Detroit scored on a tight end sweep from Eric Ebron, a 55-yard punt return from Andre Roberts and a pick six from Rafael Bush. That shows they can dig deep and win even when their star man does not have his best day at the office.Goff dream turns into nightmareIt never looked close to perfect from Jared Goff on Sunday night as the first overall pick in the 2016 Draft made his debut at quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams. But it looked more than good enough as the Rams led 10-0 with just over four minutes remaining.But Goff didnt turn out to be the story of this game. That honour goes to an under-fire Ryan Tannehill, who was beaten up behind a make-shift offensive line missing Branden Albert and Mike Pouncey. Highlights of the Miami Dolphins win over the Los Angeles Rams in week 11 of the NFL But Tannehill has renewed belief under the leadership of quarterback-whispering head coach Adam Gase and with some late self-destruction from the Rams in terms of penalties and blown assignments, he led Miami to a fifth straight win with touchdown passes to Jarviss Landry and the impressive DeVante Parker.dddddddddddd.This may be a bit too simplistic but Ill say it anyway - Miami dont win that game under Joe Philbin, who was fired last year. Gase has lit a fire under this team and Tannehill delivered in a big way with the game on the line.And Goff? It was a definite mixed bag and there were a lot of times when he looked like a fresh-faced rookie - but he also showed enough to make me believe the Rams made the right decision with this move.Wilson back to full fitnessThe Seattle Seahawks looked in control from start to finish during their 26-15 win over Philadelphia and I think they present the biggest challenge to the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC run to the Super Bowl. Highlights of the Seattle Seahawks 26-15 win over the Philadelphia Eagles Every NFL game is filled with big moments but one single play would give me great hope for the future if Im a Seahawks fan - Doug Baldwins 15-yard touchdown pass to quarterback Russell Wilson.There is no way the Seahawks run that play and send Wilson sprinting downfield to catch a pass from his wide receiver without him being fully healthy. And he does look back to his very best after early season ankle, knee and pectoral injuries. Russell Wilson hands the ball off and then receives the ball for a TD! That is good news for the Seahawks and great news for all neutrals who love watching Wilson shine as a passer, a runner and now a receiver.The missing menThe Cincinnati Bengals are having a bad year and, while there are many reasons, not many are greater than the list I am about to give you.The Bengals lost 16-12 to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and it looks like they lost wide receiver A.J. Green and running back Giovani Bernard for the remainder of the year with hamstring and knee injuries, respectively. Highlights of the Buffalo Bills win over the Detroit Lions in week 11 of the NFL. Add those to tight end Tyler Eifert, who missed the first half of the season through injury, and free agent departing wide receivers Marvin Jones (Detroit) and Mohamed Sanu (Atlanta). For the cherry on top of the cake, throw in offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, who left to become head coach of the Cleveland Browns and you get a clear picture of why the Bengals have just three wins to their name - that is too much offensive talent to lose in one lump sum and survive intact.Cousins inches towards long-term dealWashington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins gambled on himself in the off-season as he inked a one-year franchise tag deal with his NFC East club. And it looks like he is going to parlay that into a lucrative long-term contract as Washington are rolling at 6-3-1 following their Sunday night mauling of Green Bay.In high and swirling winds, Cousins did a masterful job of spreading the ball around and picked on the Packers much-maligned defensive backs to the tune of 375 yards and three touchdowns. Highlights from the Washington Redskins victory over the Green Bay Packers His opposite number - Aaron Rodgers - didnt do too much wrong with 351 yards and three scores of his own, but he got very little help from his defence and the Packers, for so long one of the serious contenders in the NFL, have now lost four straight to drop to 4-6 on the year.Finally on Cousins, I maintain that he is one of the growing quarterbacks in the NFL who we should keep an eye on. I think he is a fantastic player and a great leader in the locker room. Oh, and he will get rich in the coming off-season!Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price.
