In the five losses [in the last seven games], shooting percentage dropped from 49.7 over the first three quarters to 35.7 in the fourth. Not surprisingly, the rate at which Hawks baskets came from assists dropped from 54.5 percent to 37.1. Points in the paint went from 10.1 per quarter to 6.4 in the fourth quarters of the losses.This passage may have the fingerprints of the Hoopdata boxscore on it:
