The Atlanta Hawks pretty much fell off of everyone’s radar when they lost ou ton Dwight Howard this offseason, but the guys who ended up on the roster anyways took issue with the team being written off and have put together a very respectable season so far.

One of their bright spots has been the play of Paul Millsap, who twice on Friday made the highlight reel with separate burns on two different members of the Philadlephia 76ers.

First, Millsap embarrassed Evan Turner by blocking his shot after getting all fancy about driving to the bucket.

Then, Millsap followed things up later with a twi handed jam on Thaddeus Young.

Both Turner and Young have been mentioned as trade chips for the Sixers and both likely want to get as far away from Millsap as possible tonight.
