Atlanta Hawks respond to Trail Blazers’ Twitter diss

Trail Blazers logoThe Atlanta Hawks responded on Twitter Wednesday to a diss by the Portland Trail Blazers’ Twitter account earlier in the day.

The Trail Blazers, who lead the Western Conference with a 16-3 record after beating the OKC Thunder on Wednesday, sent out this message:

That was a reference to the strength of the conference, which has 12 of 15 teams with records of .500-or-better. The Eastern Conference only has three such teams now that the Hawks beat the Los Angeles Clippers 107-97 to get to .500 for the season.

After their win over one of the Western Conference’s top teams, the Hawks sent a tweet to the Blazers that linked to the box score from their game against the Clips:

Well played, Hawks. But I’m not so sure why the Blazers are talking this mess. It’s not like they’d beat the Miami Heat or Indiana Pacers in a playoff series anyway, so how much would it really help them to be in the East?
