Hawks Become First Team Since 1984 to Block 15 Shots


The Hawks made some defensive history on Tuesday night even with its top perimeter defender from a year ago, DeMarre Carroll, now in Toronto.

With former Hawks finger-wagger Dikembe Mutombo looking on, Atlanta blocked 15 shots, sixth-most by any team in playoff history since 1984-85. And this is without a single 7-footer who plays in the rotation.
