Through this young NBA season, the Hawks have been silent but deadly. Hey, you know what else is silent but deadly? Oh, forget it. Anyway, Atlanta had a brief hiccup this week when they were blown out by the Spurs, but aside from that, they had another solid showing. Keep it going, guys. Just don't get too gassed. —Jose Martinez
