Charles Barkley: Hawks are a bunch of chihuahuas (Video)
The Cleveland Cavaliers took a 59-42 lead into halftime of their blowout win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, and Charles Barkley was not impressed with Mike Budenholzer’s squad. We know that because he compared the Hawks to a certain breed of dog that isn’t exactly known for it’s ferocity.
During the TNT halftime show, Barkley urged the Cavs to not let up on the “chihuahuas” they were facing.
“These some chihuahuas out here from Atlanta,” Barkley said. “There’s a pit bull out there in Golden State, so you can’t take no chances.”
The Cavs took no chances, and they kept their foot on the gas en route to a 118-88 victory and an Eastern Conference Finals sweep. Between Barkley’s commentary at halftime and what J.R. Smith’s mom said after the game, we were treated to some fantastic quotes on Tuesday evening.
