The Atlanta Hawks beat the New Jersey 104-102 in OT. Josh Smith hit a last second shot to put them by 2 with 4.9 to go and VC's three was in and out and the put back failed. Josh Smith ended up with 19 points and 9 boards in 38 minutes. Smith is good in crunch time and as he develops the Hawks know the can look to him when it counts. Joe Johnson had 19 points and 11 assists in 45 minutes. Johnson has been know to hit big shots but tonight he still played well. Al Harrington had 18 points amd 8 boards in 39 minutes. Harrington played hard but being a contract year you would think he would do everything better than usual but he's not. Jason Kidd had 19 points and 17 assists in 45 minutes. JKidd got it to his team with the extra effort because VC got hurt in the last game but he was still ready to go today. Nenad Krstic had 21 points and 8 boards in 42 minutes. Krstic is important because the Nets didn't get to the finals without Kmart being affective.
