--It wasn't as vicious in real-time as it looked on the broadcasts. That's the belief of these Hawks are they return to Atlanta."I don't think Josh (Smith) had any harm in it," Hawks center Al Horford said, of the play in Monday's game in Salt Lake City. "I think that the way that he (Utah's Matt Harpring) landed is what really caused (it). He landed fine and then hit his head. I don't think Josh is a dirty player, it was just unfortunate that it happened."
Harpring said he reacted the way he always has when knocked down.
"That was one of those that hurt," he told reporters after the game. "Every time I get knocked down like that a voice goes off in my head, 'get up.' It just goes back to what my dad said in football -- never act like you are hurt."
