--Woodson objected to the notion that the Hawks' lopsided home and road records somehow paint them in a different light than most of the rest of the league."There are only seven teams in our league playing better than .500 on the road this season," he said. "So that makes us one of 23 teams in the league taking a beating on the road. But we've handled our business pretty much at home, and that's what's put us in the position we're in to secure home court advantage."
The Hawks went more than a month without a road win before Tuesday's 118-110 win in Toronto, their last coming March 2 in Washington. In fairness, they only played seven road games during that span.
--Salim Stoudamire's doing well in Milwaukee, having been signed to a multi-year deal by the Bucks last week. Now that he's rehabbing a groin injury and prepared to play next year, he can finally put the disappointment of his time with the Hawks behind him and move on.
"This is a fresh start for me," he said. "My time in Atlanta was a positive experience for me all around. Now it's time to build on that here and see where my hard work takes me."
QUOTE TO NOTE: "Just when you count this team out we find a way. Somehow, someway, it seems like we just always find a way to get it done." -- Joe Johnson on the Hawks' resilient nature this season.
