Our recap from Atlanta’s loss to the Kings focuses on their fast start, and then their devastating collapse. The Hawks held a 22-point lead at one point in the third quarter. The Hawks played well offensively, but somehow they allowed the Kings to get back into the game. Darren Collison‘s driving layup in the waning seconds would give Sacramento the win.
At Peachtree Hoops, Jeff Siegel also recaps the loss to the Kings. He mentions that Atlanta’s defense down the stretch was lacking. The Hawks definitely miss Thabo Sefolosha. Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Hawks with 28 points and took the final shot of the game. He fought through contact, but no foul was called.
Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports on the NBA’s Last Two Minutes report from Atlanta’s loss to the Kings. The NBA says that Tim Hardaway Jr. was not fouled on the final play of the game. They certainly have an interesting interpretation of the rules of basketball.
Chris Barnewell at FanSided writes on the kindness war between the Hawks and Kings Twitter accounts. Earlier in the week the NBA released a memo about proper social media decorum. The two teams decided to have a little fun with it.
