Jeff Teague hit 9-of-19 shots, a 3-pointer and 9-of-10 free throws for 28 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal in Saturday's Game 1 101-93 win over the No. 1 seeded Pacers in Indy.
Paul Millsap added 25 points, eight rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in the win. The Pacers look like the worst No. 1 seed in history, but it's early. The Hawks now hold homecourt advantage and the Pacers are going to have to make some sweeping changes if they're going to come back. George Hill and Roy Hibbert don't match up well against the Hawks, and Frank Vogel may have to bench them in order to get the Pacers going. It's been a wild opening Saturday, as all three away teams (Hawks, Warriors, Nets) have won today. Apr 19 - 9:45 PM

Jeff Teague hit 9-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 25 points, four rebounds, three assists and four steals in Saturday's big win over the Heat.

The win had several playoff impacts, as the Hawks are in, the Knicks are out and the Heat are back in a tie with Indiana for the best record in the East. The Hawks and Knicks have nothing left to play for, so owners of their players need to watch our news feed to find out if they're going to play in the final two games of the season.
Apr 12 - 10:06 PM

Jeff Teague played well in an important 105-97 win over the Celtics on Wednesday with 19 points, eight assists, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The Hawks needed this game for their playoff chances and now hold a two-game lead over Knicks with both teams set to play four more games to finish the season. Teague has been hot over his last five, averaging 20.0 points, 7.8 dimes, 0.8 steals and 2.4 triples on 53.1 percent from the field. It's been a bumpy ride for Teague this season, but he's finishing strong.
Apr 9 - 11:10 PM

Jeff Teague put up a double-double during Friday's blowout 117-98 win over the Cavaliers, scoring 20 points with two boards, 12 dimes and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He went up against Kyrie Irving and put up a big line -- a fairly common occurrence this season. Tonight's game was Teague's first double-double since Mar. 15 and just his second since the All-Star break. He was handing out a ton of dimes to start the season, but is still below 7.0 dimes per game on the year.
Apr 4 - 11:38 PM

Jeff Teague bounced back from a scoreless game on Wednesday with a 22-point game on Thursday vs. the Blazers, adding three boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He was benched late on Wednesday and played much better tonight. A lot of point guards have success against Damian Lillard, so this line should come with a grain of salt. That said, he'll be fine and was cruising before that dud, so he should be locked in to all lineups.
Mar 27 - 9:47 PM

Jeff Teague, who was on fire coming in, missed all five of his shots and failed to score in Wednesday's loss to the Wolves.

He had scored 23 or more points in four straight games, so this one came out of nowhere. He played just 19 minutes and it's possible the Hawks just wanted to get him some rest in a game that was out of reach. Look for Teague to bounce back on Thursday against the Blazers.
Mar 27 - 12:54 AM

Jeff Teague scored a team-high 26 points during Friday's 111-105 loss to the Pelicans with three boards, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He is coming off a 34-point game on Tuesday and his shooting percentages have also clicked. In his last five, Teague shot 50.7 percent from the field with averages of 21.6 points, 4.2 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.8 triples. He's as must-start as it gets.
Mar 22 - 12:28 AM

Jeff Teague hit 11-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer for 34 points, three rebounds, five assists and four steals in Tuesday's overtime win against the Raptors.

Teague did most of his damage in the second half and didn't have much trouble getting around Kyle Lowry tonight. His slump appears to be over, and he's averaging 19.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 7.6 assists, a steal and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games. The 34 points tied his season high.
Mar 18 - 11:01 PM

Jeff Teague handed out nine assists during Monday's 97-83 win over the Bobcats to go with 11 points, six boards and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

His assists really fell over in January with just 4.6 per game and in February at 5.8, but he's really picked it back up lately. In his last five, Teague averaged 8.4 dimes to go with 3.8 boards, 0.6 blocks, 0.4 steals and 1.4 triples. He's turning his season around when it counts and has the Hawks on a four-game winning streak.
Mar 17 - 9:52 PM

Jeff Teague hit 6-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and a block in Saturday's win over the Nuggets.

He also helped encourage Ty Lawson to put up an 0-of-12 shooting line, but in true Teague fashion, missed a big free throw with the game on the line. He got lucky and grabbed a loose-ball rebound and Kyle Korver was able to put the game away with two clutch free throws. Teague's late-game missteps don't really matter in fantasy and he's starting to play well again.
Mar 15 - 10:18 PM

Jeff Teague scored a team-high 22 points vs. the Bucks during a 102-97 win on Thursday, adding three boards, eight assists, two blocks, two 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 33 minutes.

He had a huge throwdown late in the game to ice it as the Bucks defense couldn't collapse on him. Teague shot 7-of-10 from the field and made all six attempts from the line, which makes the 22-point game very impressive. He'll get a great matchup against the Nuggets on Saturday to try and keep it going.
Mar 13 - 11:58 PM

Jeff Teague had an issue with his ear on Monday but will start vs. the Jazz.

He showed up to shootaround in street clothes because of an ear wax buildup. As gross as that sounds, he should be ready to go tonight against a vulnerable Jazz defense. The Hawks will start Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Pero Antic tonight.
Mar 10 - 2:08 PM

Jeff Teague hit just 3-of-9 shots for nine points, nine assists and a steal, but also missed a key free throw late as the Clippers held on for a one-point win over the Hawks.

Teague missed the front end of a free throw at the end of the game, and then accidentally banked his second one in as he was trying to miss it. Teague's hot run is over, as he's scored either nine or 10 points in each of his last three games. The return of Paul Millsap and Pero Antic may help his assist numbers, but Teague won't be counted on to score as much as he was a week ago. He's still a solid point guard option in fantasy leagues and the Hawks play four games per week to end the season after next week's three-game slate.
Mar 9 - 1:18 AM

Jeff Teague hit just 4-of-12 shots for 10 points, two rebounds and three assists in Wednesday's ugly loss at Portland.

Teague came in cooking, scoring between 26 and 29 points in each of his last four games, but the Hawks just didn't have any energy tonight. Teague should bounce back on Friday at the Warriors, although owners have to also be hoping that this isn't the start of another slump.
Mar 6 - 1:19 AM

Jeff Teague kept the pedal to the floor on Sunday night, hitting 14-of-21 shots for 29 points, six rebounds, nine assists, two steals and a block.

He was just 1-of-3 from the line and didn't hit a 3-pointer, but no one is complaining. Especially since he was in foul trouble. Teague's funk is officially over, as he's scored between 26 and 29 points in each of his last four games, averaging 27.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers. The Hawks play three times this week and it looks like he should be in almost any lineup while he's so hot.
