Atlanta Hawks Notes, Quotes 2009-01-26
--Even with the loss, the Hawks remain two games ahead of Detroit in the race for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Just how tuned into the race are the Hawks?

After their loss to Phoenix Sunday the Hawks entire locker room was locked into the finish of the Pistons' home loss to Houston.

"We're worried about ourselves first and foremost," Josh Smith said. "Don't get it twisted. We have to handle our business and not get too concerned with other people.

"But it helps if we can keep that little cushion we have and just make sure we try and create whatever space we can to steer clear of the pack as the season goes on."

--Hawks coach Mike Woodson insists that keeping things that simple is the best way to make sense of the ebb and flow that comes with the playoff chase.

"The priority for us was set after our playoff series against Boston," Woodson said. "You have to put it right on their head. If you can take Boston to seven (games), there is no reason why you can't be one of the top teams in this league if you come in and compete on a night-in and night-out basis. There's just no excuse.

"The only way you get there is by taking every game serious and you compete for 48 minutes on a night-in and night-out basis. You do that and you put yourself in a position to win games."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We've got to have the mentality that we don't care who is up to bat and that we just have to hit the home run every night. We have to go out and play and not worry about what team we're playing against and who is or is not injured. It's about defending, rebounding and winning games. That's it." -- Josh Smith on the focus the Hawks have to bring to the floor every night.
