Atlanta Hawks Notes, Quotes 2008-12-18
--G Ray Allen's free throws with 0.7 seconds to play put the finishing touches on the Celtics' 16th straight win, snapping the Hawks' three-game win streak and handing them just their second home loss in their last 14 games dating back to the playoffs. And while it's easy to hang the game on Johnson's missed free throw, the Hawks squandered plenty of opportunities earlier to create some space. They missed six other free throws, finishing 20-for-27 from the line on a night where they shot just 37 percent (29-for-79) from the floor and made just two of their 14 three-point attempts.

"That man has made too many game-winners for us to say anything about that free throw," Hawks forward Marvin Williams said of Johnson's late-game miss. "I missed three myself. It's just one of those nights where you play great defense and do all the things you can, but the game gets away from you."

--Hawks coach Mike Woodson acknowledged his team's newly-minted home court advantage thanks to an assist from his players.

"Without a doubt, we have that now," he said, minutes before his team took the floor before their fourth sellout crowd of the season. "When you hear your players talk about it, that the fans really juice them up and give them energy when things might be going a little south -- they know the fans are in their corner. And it's nice to see because it's taken a while to get to that point."

--Celtics coach Doc Rivers drew first blood with the officials, earning a technical foul from Zach Zarba with 2:52 to play before halftime for leaping off the bench in protest of an illegal screen call on Kevin Garnett for Garnett's second foul of the game.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We can play with anybody. Up there (in Boston Nov. 12) was a one-point loss and now a three-point loss. We just have to keep our heads up and know that the season is not over because of this game. We just have to push on to the next one." -- F Josh Smith, on the Hawks' season going on past the loss to the Celtics.
