Atlanta Hawks Notes, Quotes 2008-12-21
--The Hawks' early-game woes from beyond the three-point line continued Friday night. The Hawks missed their first six three-point attempts of the game. G Flip Murray snapped the drought with a make from the corner with 1:11 to play in the first quarter.

But instead of continuing to fire away from deep with the Warriors settled into their zone defense, the Hawks flipped the script and scored 24 of their 31 first-quarter points in the paint.

Their dependence on the deep ball, however, returned in the second quarter, as they only added eight more points in the paint by halftime.

--Warriors coach Don Nelson's preference for an up-tempo game forced the Hawks to dig a little deeper into the rotation than normal.

"They play so fast so there's a chance that we might have to go a little bit deeper," Woodson said beforehand.

Woodson played 10 of the 12 players on the active list before halftime, with Acie Law IV making surprise appearance in the second quarter and responding with five assists in seven minutes of action. Solomon Jones also got in on the action with three points and two rebounds in five minutes of relief action. Neither Law nor Jones played in Wednesday's loss to Boston.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "These guys didn't show the Warriors any respect and it came back to bite them. You have to respect every single opponent in this league. That's the golden rule. It almost cost us tonight." -- One Hawks assistant to another as they walked off the floor Friday night with a hard-earned win over the Warriors.
