Game 5 Wed. April 29, Miami @ Atlanta, 8:00 pm EDT TNT (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/preview?gid=2009042901)




ATLANTA (AP)—Zaza Pachulia spends most of his time as an obscure backup center for the Atlanta Hawks, playing a few minutes here, a few minutes there. He’s rugged but hardly graceful. He’s a banger who handles the dirty work, letting others claim the glory.

But in the playoffs? He’s fearless. He’s a leader. He’s invaluable.

Two years running, the 6-foot-11 native of Georgia—the country—has taken a lead role for the team that plays in the state of Georgia.

A postseason ago, Pachulia fired up Atlanta by going forehead-to-forehead with Boston All-Star Kevin Garnett, showing his underdog team had no intention of backing down to the eventual champion Celtics in a series that surprisingly went the full seven games.

This game will be chippy. Game 5, guys are sick of seeing each others faces. Even good boy Dwight had to put an elbow to somebodies face! I'm expecting this one to be the closest game of the series yet. 2 a piece, both teams know they have to play w/ energy early to win. This should be a great game.

Point taken but both of them just don't stick to what they're effective at. Sheed is a great low post player while Smith's better at penetrating but neither utilize their strengths effectively.

Very true. If they just played in the post and around the basket and stopped trying to make the fun and easy (by easy I mean, it takes a hell of a lot less work to hoist up an 18 foot jumper as opposed to banging in the post for a shot) jump shots, they'd be so much better.

Hope Wade is ok

AirJordan23
04-29-2009, 08:42 PM
Refs have been a bit to picky, some of those calls for either sides shouldn't have been called. Heat did the right thing going to JO in that situation. I'm surprised he's had a decent series, he stunk it up against the Hawks for the past 3 years or so.

Rome
04-29-2009, 08:42 PM
O'Neal has to start playing like an all star right now. Wade in the back doesn't help the heat.

Hopefully he's ok.

Josh Smith is such a ****ing punk. I just would like to bring Joel Anthony in for a second and let him give Smith a taste of his own medicine and go right back out. He pushed Magloire down one game and now he's starting fights with Wade. Spo needs to do something; he can't keep letting Smith start ****.

Plus ATL fans are nice and classy.

Let's get Smith a nice T and get the game on...I'm tired of all the stoppage.

Wade actually barely touched him, he got caught up on the backboard.

If that other stuff hadn't happened, it probably might not have been a flagrant, but on the fast break, when someone goes down like that, in today's nba, they're gonna call it flagrant, especially in an already chippy game.

I don't disagree with that for the most part, but he's a ***** and I think Magloire would own him. Haslem also is a badass. I would probably take him in a fight over everyone else on the Heat; I'd give Wade a chance, JO a small chance, Joel Anthony a pretty good chance and I'd put money on Magloire and Haslem... Anyways,

I hope the team takes offence and plays mad on defense.

1. Smith came to the aid of his team mate. Magloire pushed Solo 1rst. Thats what he should do.

2. Most of you just don't like Smith so you look for any reason to complain. Like it or not, he's been the best player for Atlanta in the series.

My bet is someone gets tossed in the second half. Dominating half by the Hawks, Wade is not healthy, and the Heat are struggling without him being effective. Doesn't look good for the rest of the game, or the series.

I remember people were underestimating the Hawks bench like crazy some people actually said it sucks.
We proved them wrong. Murray is in double figures almost every game, ZAZA is a menace on the boards, and Mo Evans has stepped in the absence of Williams. Mario West is a high-energy relentless defender too.

Because he plays for the OTHER team... The one we are trying to beat.

Woodson is an idiot though.

I utterly disagree with this statement... I guess we won't think he's a good coach until we win a championship? We have improved our record over each of the past 5 years.... I know the win total started low, but there is something to be said for that. 3 years ago I would have agreed with you, but I have spoken with him, and he is very knowledgeable and has a very good understanding of his players and what they can do on the floor.

Hawkalicious
04-30-2009, 01:04 AM
I wasn't on here during the game, but I wanted to say something about the booing of Wade when he banged his head.

I was actually yelling too when that play ended, but it was because I thought one of our players got held on the rebound after Joe missed the 3-pointer coming back. However, we know that Wade has had his share of dramatizations over the years (one of which included crying... yes, a grown man crying) and I think that Hawks fans were mad because they didn't know the severity of the situation at that point. They probably were just mad he was stopping the game. (Thats how I would feel if I was drunk). I didn't hear much booing after the break when he was being helped off.

When he came back on there was booing, and as well there should have been. He is entering the game, so he is ok. Do I need to blow him a kiss first to make him feel better before I start rooting against him again? Also, you have to remember that this is a pivotal playoff game on the road.

As far as I'm concerned, the complaining about this and more so the complaining about the techs and the flagrant is just sour grapes. None of that changed the end result of this game. The Hawks were the better team tonight by far.
