PBT Extra: Hawks look to prove first half of season not a fluke

The Atlanta Hawks were the story of the first half of the season. With Al Horford healthy (he missed most of last season), Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague growing into their roles, and in a second season in Mike Budenholzer’s system, the Hawks are on top of the Eastern Conference.

Can they carry that on into the playoffs?

That’s what Hawks players talk about, and what Jenna Corrado and I discuss, in this latest PBT Extra, complete with a lot of footage from All-Star Weekend. And yes, I think the Hawks can keep it going.

Also, if the Hawks add a player management will be careful to make sure it’s a guy who will fit in one of the best locker rooms in the league.
