Watched the game at the sports bar tonight. God I held my breath when Gerald Wallace banged knees with that guy. Glad he was alright.
Great night by raja. The hawks were packing it in like crazy on D before him and DJ hit a few shots. Raja and DJ look like players that can help win games with there jump shooting. Raymond and Gerald Wallace didn't tonight aside from the one three ray hit from the corner. . Naz looked like an asset. Flip looked like a capable fill in for bell except on D. Wallace was a monster on the boards. Felton played well after a slow start shooting the ball. TC going 5-5 was also huge, but Raja was really the guy who took the pressure off everyone else
The D looks fairly good although there is considerable room for improvement. When Atl was hanging in the game they were just taking it to the baseline 2 feet from the basket and flipping it in over us. If someone is shooting it that close to the basket we need to get a block and GW eventually got a nice one. Josh Smith helped us as well by taking some ugly shots.
This is the first time I can ever remember us being over .500
Hopefully we can take some confidence from this victory and build on it.
