Hawks tear through defenseless Raptors


Hawks tear through defenseless Raptors

The Hawks were playing their first game since losing at Detroit on Sunday. Coach Mike Woodson used the time to stress defense in practice.

"It got a little intense the last couple of days and we needed that," Woodson said. "We had been lagging from a defensive standpoint and rebounding the ball."

After they were outrebounded 53-27 in a 94-88 loss at Detroit on Sunday, the Hawks had 26 rebounds in just the first half against Toronto and claimed a 51-29 advantage for the game.

The Raptors arrived in Atlanta early Wednesday after losing to Washington in Toronto on Tuesday night and fell to 0-4 in the second game of back-to-backs.

"I think it had something to do with their back-to-back games," said Atlanta's Jamal Crawford, who had 16 points. "We jumped out early and didn't look back the whole game."

DeMar DeRozan had 21 points and Marco Belinelli added 16 for Toronto.

Eleven Atlanta players scored and Maurice Evans had nine points to narrowly miss giving the Hawks 10 players in double figures.

Josh Smith had 16 points, including 12 in the opening period, and four blocks. Marvin Williams added 15 points.

The Hawks stretched their lead by scoring 42 points in the second period, a season high for any period, for a 75-54 halftime lead. Atlanta kept on the pressure by adding 39 points in the third quarter.

Mike Bibby's three 3-pointers early in the first 4 minutes of the third quarter left each of the Hawks' starters in double figures.

Woodson left his starters on the bench most of the final quarter.

NOTES: The Raptors suffered their fifth straight road loss to fall to 2-9 away from Toronto. ... Bosh, who leads the NBA with 16 double-doubles, had no points and three rebounds while picking up three fouls in the first half. ... Atlanta's 75 points and 60.5 percent shooting from the field in the first half set season highs. ... Joe Johnson set a season high with 11 assists.
