hawks lose out to bobcats
THE FACTS: Former Hawk Stephen Jackson hit a 19-foot jump shot at the final buzzer to give the Bobcats an 88-86 win in Atlanta Saturday night, the second straight home loss for the Hawks. Jackson scored 32 points as Atlanta frittered away a 22-point second-quarter lead and was outscored 49-34 in the second half.
Josh Smith scored 28 points for Atlanta, which lost 117-83 Tuesday to the visiting Clippers. After missing two games with a back contusion, Al Horford had a double-double (16 points, 10 rebounds) for the Hawks. Shaun Livingston scored a season-high 22 points off the bench for Charlotte, which is 14-12 under coach Paul Silas after starting the season 9-19 under Larry Brown. Gerald Wallace pitched in 16 points and 13 rebounds. The win snapped a seven-game losing streak in Atlanta for Charlotte, which last won on the Hawks' floor on Jan. 19, 2007.
NOT: Atlanta's Jamal Crawford made just 1 of 9 shots (with two air balls), and missed all four of his 3-points attempts. In his past three games he's missed all nine of his 3-pointers, and made just 7 of 29 shots (24.1 percent) overall. With two points Saturday, the NBA's leading reserve scorer has averaged 5.7 points in that span. Joe Johnson has missed six straight 3-pointers over two games, including five Saturday. Atlanta's leading scorer had made 7 of 22 shots (31.8 percent) over those games. Josh Smith has 11 rebounds combined over the past two games.

Re: hawks lose out to bobcats
The Hawks should have put Greald Wilkins, Joe Johnson, Al Horford, Josh Smith on Jackson, but they put Evans short ass on him. Jackson is 6'8 and Wilkins is 6'4.
