Hoopdata boxscore


Josh Smith:
"We couldn’t get [stops]. We ended up switching. Nash is a smart point guard. He knew where the mismatches were. Tip your hat to Channing Frye, he hit some tough shots on Damien. Damien was all over him but when you are 6-10, 6-11 you get that ball in position you want it’s kind of hard to block the shot."
Jamal Crawford on getting hot in the second half and the Hawks using a 31-year-old free agent small forward signed mid-season to defend one of the greatest offensive point guards in the history of the league in the fourth quarter:
"I’m getting back to being me, for sure."
Larry Drew on Jeff Teague:
"I thought he came out aggressive in attack mode and used his speed and quickness. We need that. I thought he did a tremendous job breaking the defense down and getting to the basket. That’s the way he has to play. Don’t worry about turning the basketball over, just keep the pressure on the defense."
Al Horford:
"It was one of those games. I was happy with our team's effort in the second half and I wish we would have maintained throughout the game. We did a much better job of staying poised and playing our style of play."
Zaza Pachulia was held out of the game due to his involvement in trade talks the Hawks continue to carry out.
