I think you’ve gotta believe in yourself, I think you gotta put in a lot of work off the court to make sure you’re ready, Green said. You know the famous quote, sometimes you have to be ready so you don’t have to get ready. I do a lot of things that, it’s like, off the camera, that a lot of people don’t see me do.

The Hawks fought back from a 26-point fourth quarter deficit against the Cavs, electrifying the Atlanta crowd with a 44-18 run in the final frame on the way to a 126-125 overtime win.
That scary five-game stretch? The Hawks finished 4-1 with the only loss coming against the Pacers in a meaningless regular-season finale.
We’re finally playing how we’re supposed to, Millsap said. I’ve been saying all season that when we get it together, it’s going to be all good.
