"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Macbeth (Act V, Scene V).
“We got a great look at the end of the game,” Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. “But it should not have come down to that. I have to do a better job of managing the game. We made a couple of plays at the end that were costly.”
How so Mike? How so? Do tell more.....
“I don’t know what I did. I guess I’ll have to look at the tape,” Horford said. “He came to me. I jumped straight up and stayed in my vicinity and the ref thought it was a foul.”
I do not know what you did either Al.
Your thoughts Joe?
“I had a great look at the end, and I thought it was going to go in. But, the truth is, we were put in a tough position.
“At the very least, we should still be out there playing. I mean, that game deserved as much. For the most part we played a great game. We just had a few mistakes that cost us.”
It should be noted that microphones are shoved in these players and coaches faces moments after a frustrating loss. It should also be noted I cannot remember the last time a Hawks player complained about a foul to the media.
My final thoughts: If you have an open 18 footer by your best player to win the game, you certainly have a right to be upset over the previous foul but probably not to complain.
Especially when your coach is claiming mismanagement down the stretch.
