The Atlanta Hawks Fight the Miami Heat to the Final Buzzer
March 8th, 2012 at 12:01 PM
***PHOTO1*** The Atlanta Hawks lost to the Miami Heat 89-86.  The game was tough and spirited with the Hawks actually looking like the more aggressive team.  The irony behind that is the fact that Atlanta was not whistled to shoot a free throw in the entire first half.  In fact their first attempt at the charity stripe did not come until close to the middle of the third quarter.  Despite not getting any love from the officials the...
