Atlanta Hawks Notes, Quotes 2009-03-18
--The Hawks and NHL's Atlanta Thrashers had piled up 11 straight wins between them going into the Hawks' game against Sacramento at Philips Arena.

That's a whole lot of winning for two teams, owned by the same group, bashed routinely for their failures.

So Hawks coach Mike Woodson is pleading for a little civic pride and sensitivity from all sides as both teams try to keep the March roll going.

"It's great for the city," Woodson said. You need all the sports teams to do well. With that being said, they need support instead of always negativity going around. Sometimes it takes time, but we're so impatient. I've been here five years now. It's draining to me."

--The Hawks made up for G Joe Johnson's power outage with their best second quarter of the season.

They turned a 10-point deficit into a 13-point lead of their own by outscoring the Kings 42-28 in the second behind the work of Josh Smith and Al Horford. They combined for 18 points (nine each). The Hawks went to work inside, outscoring the Kings 22-8 in the paint with Smith and Horford working the Kings over, though Smith did end the half with a three-pointer at the buzzer. They were a combined 8-for-9 from the floor in the quarter.

"Any time we get a chance to get Josh the ball in the post where he's effective we have to do it," Johnson said before the game, "because he's unstoppable down there."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We don't encourage our guys to hurt anyone. I thought it was a clean foul. It was a foul you take in that situation. You go after the ball and you don't give up the dunk or lay-up." -- Kings coach Kenny Natt, on the hard foul Spencer Hawes put on Hawks center Al Horford early in the fourth quarter.
