Atlanta Hawks Getting Inside 2008-12-06


Atlanta Hawks Getting Inside 2008-12-06
The next time the Hawks win a game in Texas will be the first time they've done it during Mike Woodson's four-plus year tenure as coach.

The Hawks' last win in the Lone Star State was March 17, 2004 in Dallas, where they play tonight. That's a stretch of 12 games, including stops in Houston and San Antonio, where they play on back-to-back nights this week (Tuesday and Wednesday).

"I don't remember being close in Texas," said fourth-year Hawks forward Marvin Williams. "We haven't been the best road team in the past. But those are good teams, really good teams at home. Every one of those teams is competing for a championship."

Woodson said the "Texas Triangle" is the equivalent of a Western Conference road trip in degree of difficulty.

And even with his team sitting pretty at 12-6 overall this season, this trips remains one of the demons the Hawks must exercise on their season-long road to redemption.

"It's like going out to play the Lakers, Denver and Utah," Woodson said. "Those teams in Texas have been great for a long time. And it hasn't changed. All three of them are back to playing great again right now. So we have to figure things out when we get there and see if we can find a way to win."

HAWKS 98, KNICKS 95: Dared to play a game at the Knicks' preferred tempo, quick shot for quick shot, the Hawks bit hard.

And it almost cost them.

The Hawks had to rely on their old faithful, their defense, to finally get a stop in the final 5.7 seconds to subdue the Knicks for a 98-95 win Friday night at Philips Arena.

The win moved the Hawks to 12-6 on the season and 7-1 at home, but you couldn't tell they had won by the mood in the locker room after the game.

"I don't know what everybody wanted," Al Horford said. "I guess you want to beat a team by 20 and blow them out. But the important thing is we're taking care of home court and we have a 7-1 record here, so I'm happy."
