Jeff Teague carved up the Cavaliers for 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting in Wednesday's 98-96 victory, adding three rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes.
Dennis Schroder came off the bench for eight points, three boards, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes, and Atlanta's point guards were simply too quick for Mo Williams and Matthew Dellavedova. Teague is coming off a career-best season and he's an excellent PG target once the elite players are off the board. Oct 7 - 9:48 PM

Jeff Teague said he's focusing on improving his movement without the ball.

Though he made his first All-Star Game last season, Teague still thinks he has room for improvement. "Running the lanes, cutting without the ball when other people have it, when the ball is in the post slashing a little more, things like that," Teague said. "I’ll probably get a lot more easier baskets if I cut without the ball, move to the open space, I can get more open looks." Teague finished as a top-30 fantasy player last season and is a solid early-round pick as he's still just 26 years old.

Jeff Teague donated $20 per assist last season to Atlanta’s Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospital.

His dime total led to a donation of $11,260 and there are plans for him to continue next year. The Hawks are not as deep as last year with DeMarre Carroll in Toronto, so it'll be interesting to see how Teague adapts. He's still coming off a huge year and is a solid PG1 in standard leagues.

Jeff Teague led the Hawks with 17 points on 8-of-13 shooting on Tuesday, but he added only one rebound and one assist in 28 minutes during the Hawks' crushing road loss.

The Hawks' season ends in disappointment but they have plenty to be proud about, including a franchise-best 60-win regular season and their first Eastern Conference Finals appearance. Teague is one of three players with a guaranteed contract through 2016-17 (joining Kyle Korver and Thabo Sefolosha), and there's no reason to expect the 26-year-old All-Star to backslide after a top-30 fantasy finish this season.

The Hawks lost Game 3 on Sunday despite Jeff Teague's personal playoff-best 30 points on 9-of-23 field goals and 9-of-9 free throws.

Teague sank three 3-pointers while pitching in six rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 43 minutes of action. He benefitted from the absence of Kyrie Irving (knee) tonight yet his aggressive and efficient play wasn't enough to overcome the loss of Kyle Korver (ankle) as well as Al Horford's early ejection in Game 3. The Hawks' star PG should give another all-out effort vs. Cleveland's depleted backcourt on Tuesday, which is worth keeping an eye on in daily fantasy leagues.
May 25 - 12:19 AM

Jeff Teague hit just 5-of-16 shots in the Hawks' 94-82 loss to the Cavs on Friday, finishing with 12 points, three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks.

The stat line doesn't reflect his underwhelming play and the score doesn't reflect how far apart the two teams were tonight. Teague was everything he has always been when he struggles -- indecisive, passive and frustrating -- and though some credit should be given to Matthew Dellavedova he just simply has to play better for the Hawks to have a chance. They head to Cleveland down 2-0 for Sunday's matchup.
May 22 - 11:39 PM

Jeff Teague scored a team-high 27 points during a Game 1 97-89 loss to the Cavs on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks made just 4-of-23 from beyond the arc and their offense just fell apart in the second half. Teague did have a minor tweak of his neck at the end of the first half, but it didn't affect his playing time. He did have a couple mistakes down the stretch tonight and will need a better effort in Game 2 on Friday.
May 20 - 11:29 PM

LeBron James singled out Jeff Teague as a catalyst for the Hawks' success this season, saying, "He’s an All-Star for a reason."

"It starts with Jeff Teague," said James. "His aggressiveness, the way he pushes the tempo, and then it just falls in to everyone else. They do a great job of playing together." Teague will be even more dangerous of Kyrie Irving continues to struggle with right foot and left knee injuries, and backup Dennis Schroder has proven that he can sustain the pressure with Atlanta's second unit. The Hawks and Cavs face off in Game 1 on Wednesday.
May 18 - 1:08 AM

Jeff Teague hit 6-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, five assists and seven turnovers in Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Wizards.

He was on the bench, watching Dennis Schroder with the game on the line, as John Wall abused him for the much of the night. The Hawks need Teague to play better than he did tonight and we fully expect him to bounce back from an off night.
May 13 - 11:01 PM

Jeff Teague scored 26 points on 9-of-20 shooting with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in the Hawks' 106-101 Game 4 win in Washington on Monday.

Teague hit 2-of-4 treys and 6-of-7 free throws as he showed more aggression in tonight's win. He still needs to get to the middle of the floor more on offense, but the Hawks gained control of the series on the back of his strong play tonight. Al Horford was also huge with 18 points, 10 boards, three assists, two steals and two blocks in the win.
May 11 - 10:02 PM

Jeff Teague scored only nine points on 3-of-12 shooting on Tuesday, but he added seven rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 33 minutes of action.

We expected more scoring from Teague with John Wall (wrist) out of commission, but he still stuffed the boxscore to help Atlanta tie their second-round series at 1-1. The Hawks' ball-movement was crisper tonight and they finished with 30 assists vs. 10 turnovers, something they'll look to duplicate as the series shifts to Washington D.C.
May 5 - 10:50 PM

Jeff Teague's postseason struggles continued on Sunday, as he scored just 11 points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with seven assists, three rebounds, one 3-pointer and one turnover over 34 minutes.

Teague is now shooting 37.8 percent from the field this postseason, and he'll need to turn things around for Atlanta to have a chance of evening up the series during Tuesday's Game 2. The Hawks actually had a 10-point lead heading into halftime, but they absolutely self-destructed during the second-half, connecting on just 25 percent of their shot attempts. Teague did briefly leave Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but he played through it, and we'd expect him to be fine for Game 2.
May 3 - 5:03 PM

Jeff Teague (right ankle sprain) briefly left Sunday's Game 1 against the Wizards, but he will be available to keep playing.

It didn't look too serious and Teague simply had his ankle re-taped in the locker room. Teague's right ankle has been troublesome for a while now, so hopefully the injury doesn't linger throughout the series. We will let you know how he holds up after the game.
May 3 - 1:21 PM

Jeff Teague handed out 13 assists in Friday's blowout Game 6 win over the Nets, but did not hit any field goals for zero points, two steals and one block in 24 minutes.

Teague missed on all five of his attempts but he looked fine and his scoring wasn't needed in the 24-point win. He was, however, a bit inconsistent during this series and he'll need to clean that up against the Wizards.
May 1 - 10:39 PM

Jeff Teague returned from a third-quarter ankle sprain during a 107-97 win over the Nets on Wednesday, finishing with 20 points, three rebounds, eight assists, three steals and three 3-pointers.

He did have a bad turnover late and he still hasn't completely hit his stride. As for his ankle injury, it's something we'll need to watch in the next couple days. Back on Mar. 25, Teague suffered an ankle sprain and returned to action, but he missed the two following games. Although, that was the regular season and this ankle sprain didn't look as bad.
