NBA playoffs 2009-05-02
MIAMI ---In a last-minute change, the Hawks placed Al Horford and Marvin Williams on the active list for Game 6.

Both players were expected to be on the inactive list with injuries suffered earlier in the series. Horford sprained his right ankle before halftime in Game 5 and did not return.

Williams sprained his right wrist late in Game 2 and hadn't played since, until the 3:51 mark of the first quarter Friday night.

"I didn't even try and shoot Thursday," Williams said. "That might have done the trick, because every other day I tried to work on it and it wasn't responding. It just felt better today."

Williams played nearly five minutes, missing his only shot attempt during that span, a left-handed hook shot. He didn't return before halftime.

Horford did not play before halftime.

Controlling Wade?

The Hawks' defensive work in this series against Heat superstar Dwyane Wade has been admirable.

They've held the NBA scoring champion nearly five points below his regular-season average at just 26.4 points. Hawks coach Mike Woodson was asked before the game how his team has managed to control Wade.

"I don't think one player can stop Wade," Woodson said. "He's willed his team in the playoffs this year, and he is the leading scorer in our league. One guy is not going to stop Wade, so I'm trying to focus in as a team, on the Heat as a team, not just Wade. Because they have a supporting cast that can beat you as well. We have to rely on our defense to cut some of those guys as well."

Wade burned the Hawks early with 19 first-half points. He was 11-for-12
