G Kent Bazemore puts up 20 points in Hawks' loss


(3/28/2015) Hawks' guard Kent Bazemore got a rare start on Saturday and tallied a team-high 20 points in a 115-110 loss to the Hornets.

Bazeman shot 7 for 14 from the floor and grabbed five rebounds in the defeat.

''I did get some pull-up jumpers to go down and shot some 3s,'' said Bazemore, who was 3 of 7 on 3-pointers. ''For me, coming off the injuries and the long year I've had, it's pretty encouraging.''


Hawks' DeMarre Carroll questionable, Shelvin Mack out


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) Hawks SG DeMarre Carroll is listed as questionable for Monday's game at the Pelicans. Carroll has missed the last two games after straining his left Achilles. 

If Carroll can't play, Kent Bazemore will likely get the start at SG. 

PG Shelvin Mack was also listed on the Hawks injury report. He has missed the last six games with a left calf strain, and will not play in Monday's game either.

The Hawks are riding a 19-game winning streak and are 3.5 point favorites on the road for Monday's game.  


Hawks' Kent Bazemore won't slow down as a starter


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) Hawks SG Kent Bazemore is getting increased minutes, but he doesn't plan to pace himself. That's not how he made it to where he is now. 

Bazemore went from unrecruited high school player to practice player at Old Dominion. "I didn’t score in practice until like February," he told Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Undrafted and toiling in the D-League, he earned the attention of Hawks assistant GM Wes Wilcox through his work ethic and his "desperation to be great". 

The Hawks signed Bazemore during the offseason, after he spent parts of the previous two years with the Warriors and Lakers. 

Recovering from offseason foot surgery, Bazemore played limited minutes early on and found himself buried in the Hawks' rotation. A left Achilles strain to starting SG DeMarre Carroll, followed by right calf strain to backup Thabo Sefolosha gave Bazemore an opportunity, and he hit it at full speed. 

Bazemore scored 12 points in 40 minutes off the bench against the trailblazers, earning his first Hawks start on Saturday. He shot 1-for-6, scoring 3 points in the game. Bazemore said starting was an adjustment, but not one that will slow him down. 

"It’s different physically,” he told Winkeljohn. “You have to find ways when you’re fatigued and your shot is not falling to help. … I only have one gear, I think, and if I’m out there trying to pace, I’m not going to be as aggressive as I can be."
