Atlanta Hawks 80 @ Phoenix Suns 87 Atlanta took the lead going into halftime, with the score being 47-44. With solid performances by Joe Johnson, Jamal Crawford, Josh Smith, and Al Horford, the Hawks were able to recover from a horrendous 3rd quarter and tie the game 80-80 with less than a minute left in the game. However, the inability to hit big shots and make free throws crippled the Hawks and Phoenix continued on to win 87-80 Only had 11 turnovers, thats not terrible considering i forced 12 turnovers. Happy with my first game, things will come together and click. Still learning free throw motions and shots for all my players, that hurt me in this game, however that will change as the season goes on. Gortat was killing me in the 1st half but in the 2nd half we adjusted and shut him down.
