Wizards @ Hawks - 2/10/09

It's been a while since I've done a real game recap, so look out for one tonight vs. the Pistons. I did listen to the game last night and check out some of the game online, so I will simply repeat what Chris Rock said in one of his earliest major comedy specials...you aren't getting credit for doing what you are supposed to do.

Soooo...we were supposed to KILL the Wizards at home. Therefore, no kudos, no major change in the things that have distressed us since the start of the year. If you wanted to make me happy, you would have sat Bibby again and let him get completely healthy for the Pistons and simply trusted that we could beat the Wiz by 10 instead of 20 with Acie Law as the point guard playing 30 minutes to build on his uneven performance vs. the Clippers. OR you would have let Al Horford shoot the ball.

THAT would have shown me something, but as it were - in a blowout, Joe Johnson is still playing the most minutes. Anyway, a win is a win. 30 wins before All Star...almost assuredly heading toward a over .500 season and almost sure playoff berth. Hopefully, we can send Detroit a message and go 10 games over .500, but since AI is sick and might not play ...uh, this smells like a classic Atlanta loss where we think we have an advantage, the other team has veterans and pride and realize that the 4th seed is within their grasp. We'll see....
