Atlanta Hawks Getting Inside 2008-11-19

Atlanta Hawks Getting Inside 2008-11-19
The Hawks' bad luck would be funny if it wasn't so unbelievably

sinister these days.

Two weeks after losing starting power forward Josh Smith to a high

ankle sprain that will keep him out of action for anywhere from two

weeks to a month, the Hawks lost starting center Al Horford to a right

ankle sprain in a loss to Indiana Tuesday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Hawks probably thought they'd already dealt with their big

injury blow of this early season Smith went.

But watching Horford limp off the floor with 5:12 to play in the

first quarter Tuesday had to be a cruel blow for Hawks coach Mike

Woodson, who was piecing lineups together with repeated injuries to

his big men the past two weeks.

Horford was examined (the ankle was X-rayed and there was no

determination made about the severity of the injury) and stayed in the

locker room icing his ankle for the rest of the game.

The prospect of playing for even a half, let alone any extended

period of time, without both Smith and Horford has to be a frightening

one for the Hawks, whose interior defense was been non-existent

Tuesday night.

Things just got really interesting for these Hawks.

After that glorious 6-0 start, the Hawks will have every

opportunity to show what they're made of now that they'll have some

adversity to deal with for the foreseeable future.

PACERS 113, HAWKS 96: Indianapolis -- The nasty blows just keep

coming for the Hawks.

Their 6-0 start to this season is fading rapidly into the

background as the injuries and losses continue to mount.

They doubled up on the bad stuff Tuesday night, losing Al Horford

to a sprained ankle with 5:12 to play in the first quarter of their

fourth straight loss, a humbling 113-96 beating at the hands of

Indiana before a sparse crowd of 13,379 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Making matters even more complex for the Hawks is that they'll

have just a few hours to process where they go from here with

Washington coming to Philips Arena for a game Wednesday night.

Danny Granger smoked the Hawks for a game-high 34 points,

including 10 crucial points in the fourth quarter to hold off a late

Hawks' rally.

Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 25 points.
