|Atlanta Hawks Notes, Quotes 2009-12-11|
--G Mike Bibby was 2-for-11 from three-point range in the two games before the Bulls' game, after making 12 of 16 in the three previous games. He was 0-for-5 against Dallas, just his fourth game without a three-pointer this season. (In one of those games, he played just five minutes before leaving with a sprained ankle.) While his 12-for-16 run came after the ankle injury, Bibby said that his recent inaccuracy from three-point range is because, "When you shoot, you use your legs and I haven't been really using my legs because of my ankle. It's getting better. I just can't keep tweaking it." --On the opposite side, G Joe Johnson was on fire in the two games leading up to the Bulls' contest. He made 25 of 48 field goal tries in the past two games after shooting 34-for-95 in the six previous games.
"I don't think it ever went anywhere," Johnson said of his touch. "It's a long NBA season. You're not going to shoot great every night."
QUOTE TO NOTE: "Teams know it's going to be a tough game when they come in here. Our fans, they come out and really support us, they're great. We really feed off of them. So we'll try to continue to protect our home court." -- G Jamal Crawford, on the Hawks' home prowess.
