Atlanta Hawks Notes, Quotes 2008-12-11
--Now that his team is finally all grown up in the experience department, Hawks coach Mike Woodson insists that they do the same with their actions on the court. He's seen too much inattention detail lately, and it has cost his team during this road trip, where they've dropped two games in the late stages because they couldn't maintain their focus long enough to finish off the Dallas and Houston.

"It's like (Tuesday night in Houston), Josh Smith hit that three-pointer to put us up eight and everybody is so happy and they just stop playing," Woodson said. "And you saw the stretch to the end the game, it was crazy. Instead of playing the way we did to get back in the game, we just went crazy. And it's all related to the dumb stuff we're doing.

"We've got to be mentally tougher in terms of doing the things we're supposed to do. Because when I can watch film and we come out of a timeout and don't execute the things we've been taught to do, I know we've had some slippage."

--Both the Hawks and Spurs played games that went down to the wire Tuesday night, the Hawks losing to the Rockets and the Spurs knocking off the Mavericks in double overtime in Dallas.

The Spurs being the oldest team in the league and the Hawks being the sixth youngest would seem to give the Hawks an edge in the bounce-back energy department.

But that's only in theory. And Woodson doesn't subscribe to that theory. Not with four championship banners hanging over team's heads at the AT&T Center Wednesday night.

"This team has won enough titles and been in enough tough situations that nothing, and I mean nothing, phases them," Woodson said.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "You've got a tight game going on, a great game, and you're going to blow it up like that. All I did was say, 'What happened?' to (coach) Mike (Woodson) because I didn't know what happened. They gave me a tech for talking to Mike. And that's all there was to that." -- C Al Horford, on what he said to get his technical foul late in the game.
