One word. Clutch.
In a game that was low scoring, and dare I say, had a boring first three quarters, Al Horford secured a win for the Hawks Wednesday night with this game-winning layup. Horford came in crashing the boards and grabbed an offensive rebound over a lazy NeNe.
Horford finished the night with 23 points to lead the Hawks. He also added 11 rebounds along with 5 blocks to become the first ever Atlanta Hawk to finish with those numbers in a playoff game. The Hawks still have business to take care of as they have Game 6 in Washington on the horizon. A win in Game 6 would secure the Hawks their first Eastern Conference Finals birth.
