Hawks Fall In OT Thriller!

Well, the battle was all for not to say the least. The Hawks fell to the Dubs 109-105 last night, but really don’t have anything to hang their heads about. In an arena that normally sends teams packing with a 15 point spanking, the Hawks cut a 14 point lead in the second that put life in the team, and was merely seconds away from potentially stealing a game from a team that hasn’t lost a regular season home game since January 27th of 2015. Sure Curry and Igoudala did not suit up, giving the benefit it could have been much worse, but face it, you count your blessings and cut your losses as the old saying goes.

Both teams didn’t have the best night from beyond the arc. Korver went 50% only converting 3 out of 6 attempts and notching 11 for the game. Klay Thompson sank 6 3’s out of 16 attempts and led the way for the Warriors with 26. Speaking of 3, Paul Millsap blew a wide open one that probably would have sealed the deal in the closing seconds of regulation. Even Thompson and Bogut (who had 19 and only missed 1 FG) each could not sink the potential game winner in regulation.

Golden State is 5-0 in OverTime games this season, the Hawks are 0-4. Draymond put up a heave that shouldn’t have had a chance to go, with the lead at 1, that might have flattened Atlanta’s tires some. What was really the nail in the wheel though, was Klay Thompson’s step back jumper from about 16 feet out. All in All, this game was most definitely entertaining.

For the Hawks “The Anchorman” led the way of course dropping 19 points with 7 boards, Kent Bazemore showed up with 15 points and 9 rebounds, Schroeder and Horford each had 17, and Mike Scott came through with 11.

The Warriors second leading scorer was Andrew Bogut with 19 points and 7 boards. Barbosa chipped in 11, Speights had 10, and Harrison Barnes worked in 11.

Next up for Atlanta is the Lakers on Friday in the Staples Center on Kobe’s farewell tour.
