Here's what we'll do...you can go check out the other blogs and whatever they said - I'll just co-sign and say Al was awesome, I don't get why Al was able to get his milestone and then sit, but Josh wasn't, or why Joe Johnson who wasn't shooting for anything was in the game longer than he was.
Hawks 110, Clippers 92
I've spent all my time trying to figure out what the Hawks can do to convince me that our team and organization is striving to win a title this year. And I've yet to hear anything convincing yet (and no, trading for Jamal Crawford was not it). So, I'm going to say - I hope we win a title. I think I'm probably the only person who is going to be upset with the entire organization that we won't be doing so...and by upset, I mean - I'd consider firing Woodson, trading assets, and doing something drastic to shake us out of the doldrums we'll be in for a few years and instead just build around Smith and Horford exclusively. That would be my answer - my answer probably won't be heeded.
What does this have to do with the Hawks/Clippers? Nothing really - other than this being a game where Horford and Smith showed every reason why they (even against a poor team) are the present for the Hawks, not just the future.
