Hawks Pierced In Boston

I'm not even going to mention last season's playoff run. That was then and this is now. What I will say, is that the Hawks are so much more fun to watch this year. They had the Celtics on their backside for most of the game and it wasn't until the fourth quarter that the game even looked close.

ESPN probably had the best write up on the game, but too much emphasis on last year. Some things that are different, for those interested:

  • No Josh Childress - The Hawks one and only bench player (sorry Zaza, you're just there for fouls).
  • Flip Murray - An actual bench player that contributes
  • Mo Evans - Another bench player that is contributing
  • Marvin Williams shooting 3 pointers (went 4/4 over K.G.!)
  • Mike Bibby (Let's face it folks, he was NOT there last season)
It's not a moral victory, it's a big ole loss in a long season. However, the Hawks did it all without JOSH SMITH... and THAT makes me want to HOOT!
