The Hawks beat up on the Suns tonight. They are knocking those Western Conference powerhouses out one by one. Joe Johnson did not have a particularly good offensive night, but he kept everyone involved and he ended up with double digit assists. Josh Smith had a hell of a night, 22 points, 10 rebounds, 4 asst, 4 stls and 5 blocks. Pay him please! Marvin Williams showed us some of that upside we've been waiting. for. He has perfected his mid-range jump shot and I'll be fine if that's the only shot he takes. Al Horford was a beast on the boards as well. Overall the Hawks out rebounded the Suns 56-40.
Steve Nash was fantastic for the most part, but he did have a couple of killer turnovers. We'll take it though. They play Boston on Friday, I'd love for them to put the smack down on the Eastern Conference favorites!
