NBA 2010 Playoffs 1st Round – Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks NBA 2010 Playoffs 1st Round – Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks Live Stream

Joe Johnson thought the Atlanta Hawks had grown up enough to put away a team that’s missing one of its key players. Turns out, he was wrong.

Back home and all tied up in a series they expected to be on the verge of wrapping up, the Hawks got an uncharacteristic dressing-down from their low-key star. The Hawks were eager to wrap up the opening round as quickly as possible, especially facing a Milwaukee team that lost center Andrew Bogut late in the season.

Atlanta looked unstoppable in the first two games at home, taking advantage of mismatches all over the court, working the ball crisply to the open man and playing aggressively at the defensive end. All that changed when they got to Milwaukee.

The Hawks sleepwalked through Game 3, playing as though they expected the Bucks to roll over instead of come out with a sense of urgency. Milwaukee, one of the worst-shooting teams in the league, made 51 percent from the field on the way to a 107-89 blowout.

Atlanta was much more competitive in Game 4, a 111-104 loss, but still allowed the Bucks to connect on a staggering 55 percent of their shots.

No. 2 seed Orlando already wrapped up its series with a sweep of Charlotte. The Magic will be well-rested by the time they face either Atlanta or Milwaukee, another development that peeves Johnson.

The series is tied at 2-2 apiece and it’s anybody’s game. So, let’s just watch and enjoy the drama as these two teams battle for the chance to stay in the playoffs and have a chance to play in the 2010 NBA Finals.
