Hawks Vs. Bucks Video Highlights: Josh Smith's Big Night Not Enough

The Atlanta out of gas falling Tuesday night to the Milwaukee Bucks 108-101 and I am not mad at all about the loss. Sure the Hawks dug themselves out of a big hole in the first half and took the lead to start the fourth quarter but the law of averages was likely to catch up with the team sooner or later.

Monta Ellis got going and the Hawks simply didn't have enough legs left after the last few grueling days to mount much defensive effort. Josh Smith helped put the Hawks in position to get the win but no one else was there to help carry them across the finish line.

The crazy part is that things don't get any easier in the next few days. After tonight's game against Chicago, Atlanta will enjoy a much needed off day on Thursday before yet another back-to-back against the Knicks at home and Philly on the road. Its only after the game in Philly that Atlanta will receive three straight off days and an opportunity to catch its breath and to see where it stands in the Eastern Conference standings.
