The longest winning streak in the NBA is no longer and the Atlanta Hawks lose to the New Jersey Nets tonight in overtime. There really isn’t much to say when you have a 20 point lead at halftime and manage to lose a basketball game. I know there is a lot of blame to go around, but Joe Johnson continues to hurt the Hawk’s team. I wish they would sit him on the bench more when he is struggling so bad and let other guys that try hard play. He just plays too many minutes and tries to take plays off and this only leads to bad things in the NBA. He shoots the ball too much and doesn’t have a pure shooter’s stroke either for a professional ball player.
The Hawks return home on Saturday to face the Houston Rockets and maybe they can start a new winning streak. Let’s hope the team learned a lesson tonight and something can be done with Mike Woodson as the coach of this team. We will have to get this act together quick, because everything is riding on a two game series coming up next week against the Orlando Magic.
