The Atlanta Hawks lost to the Golden State Warriors 115-93 at home at Philips Arena. This was the second and final of two meetings with the Warriors this season. With the loss, the Hawks dropped to 14-7 on the season and 0-2 in the regular season series with the Warriors. The starters for the Hawks were Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, and DeShawn Stevenson in the backcourt, and Josh Smith and Al Horford in the frontcourt. Anthony Morrow (sore back) did not dress. The leading scorer for the Hawks was Al Horford, with 17 points. He also grabbed nine boards, nearly registering a double-double on the night. Louis Williams added 16 points off the bench. Ivan Johnson also nearly registered a double-double, notching 15 points and nine rebounds. Jeff Teague contributed 10 points and eight assists. The leading scorer for the Warriors was David Lee, with a game-high 20 points. In the first quarter, Al Horford paced the Hawks with nine points, and the Hawks drew a 26-26 tie at the end of one. In the second quarter, Harrison Barnes went off for 10 points, and the Warriors went on a 16-5 run and took a 62-49 halftime lead over the Hawks. In the third quarter, the Warriors took their biggest lead of the game at 27 as Coach Larry Drew began to empty his bench. In the fourth quarter, the Hawks rookies dominated offensively, but the Warriors still outscored the Hawks by two in the quarter, and the Hawks lost by 22. I think there were a couple key reasons the Hawks lost. First off, in the second quarter, Coach Drew put Kyle Korver on Harrison Barnes. Barnes knocked down two straight three-pointers and sparked a Warriors' run. Coach Drew can't put one of his biggest defensive liabilities in the game to guard someone with the skill set of Barnes. Secondly, against a team with both it's first and second string centers out of the lineup, the Hawks can't be both outrebounded and outscored in points in the paint. It's as if they decided not to try in those categories since those centers were out. Tough loss for the Hawks at home.
