As Demarre “Junkyard Dog” Carroll was being helped back to the locker room by fellow team mate Kent Bazemore after suffering a leg injury in the 4th quarter. Atlanta’s plans of utilizing Carroll as the defensive weapon against Cleveland came to a sudden halt. With home court not being an advantage, the Hawks lost to the Cavaliers 97-89 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final. The uncertainty of Carroll’s return for the remainder of the Finals is up in the air. Either way for Game 2 held Friday at 8:30 pm expect to see Al Horford, Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, and Dennis Schroder going hard in the paint to secure a worthy defense against King Lebron James.
