Watch Atlanta Hawks vs Charlotte Bobcats Live Streaming Online Free NBA 1/6/2012. The Hawks were forced to play three overtimes Thursday against Miami, falling 116-109 to begin a stretch of three games in three nights that will finish at home Saturday versus Chicago. Atlanta failed to take advantage of a Heat team playing without both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James.
“There was a total, total mental letdown,” coach Larry Drew said, adding his players lacked the spark they had when they won 100-92 in Miami on Monday.
“I didn’t see the sense of urgency I saw in Miami,” he said. “The tendency is to let your guard down, and we certainly did.”
Joe Johnson finished with 20 points for Atlanta but missed 13 of 20 shots, including a 1-of-7 effort from 3-point range. Even that performance was better than Johnson produced two nights earlier in a 76-74 loss at Chicago, making 3 of 17 from the floor and scoring a season-low 10 points.
