Smith's late heroics lift Hawks to seventh straight win


By Matt Winkeljohn, for NBA.com

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- On a strange Friday night for the Hawks, Josh Smith cooled off, Joe Johnson could hardly get Houston's Trevor Ariza out of his jersey, and the NBA's most productive team in the paint was being whipped in that area by the under-sized Rockets.

So who did Atlanta coach Mike Woodson turn to? Time to dial up Marvin Williams, he of the lost shooting touch.

Williams, all but forgotten as the Hawks (11-2) have raced to the NBA's best record, scored a season-high 29 points, and Smith showed up when it mattered most, following Mike Bibby's missed shot with a two-handed jam in the game's final second to clinch a 105-103 win in Philips Arena.

Jamal Crawford scored 21 points off the bench for Atlanta, which won its seventh straight game even though Johnson scored a modest 19 points on 6-for-18 shooting after averaging 30.3 over the previous three games.

Smith pitched in an even more tepid nine points and eight rebounds in less than 24 minutes.

Ah, the beauty of depth.

"Phenomenal. It was good to see Marvin break out with a big-time game," said Woodson. "He had looks early, and he made them. We went to him, and he continued to make them."

After making just 1-for-8 3-pointers over the previous seven games, William made three treys Friday en route to a career-high 13 field goals on 19 shots.

"I feel like I found my rhythm," he said. "Obviously, I've been shooting the ball poorly the last few weeks, but I've been working this week. I've been here every morning at 8 o'clock shooting. Thankfully, it paid off."

Williams will probably be feeling it Saturday.

The fifth-year small forward-turned power forward (thanks to the unique matchup problems that Houston presents), pitched in nine rebounds. Atlanta needed them because the Hawks' usual rebounding leaders, Al Horford and Smith, were held to a combined 14 boards.

"I think that's why I got some open looks, so it worked out offensively, but on defense it's tough, giving up a lot of strength to those guys," said the 6-foot-9, 240-pound Williams. "They play hard, man. Their bigs are not very big ... but they pound the boards."

Houston opened the fourth quarter with a 16-5 run as the Hawks struggled with several defensive switches. Ariza's defense forced Johnson to give up the ball several times (he finished with a game-high nine assists), but when Crawford buried a trey with 2:07 left, the Hawks grabbed a 102-92 lead.

Yet the Rockets weren't finished.

Kyle Lowry made five free throws and a layup over the next 97 seconds, and when Carl Landry made two free throws with five seconds left (after Horford fouled out) to finish with a team-high 18 points, the game was tied 103-103.

After a Hawks timeout, the ball was inbounded to Bibby, who quickly gave it to Johnson high beyond the left elbow. Ariza was there once again, and when Aaron Brooks slid over for a trap, Johnson switched the ball back to Bibby on the left side of the lane.

His 17-foot jumper rattled high off the rim, and it looked like a pair of Rockets had a chance to corral it.

Smith soared above everyone and rammed it home with 0.7 left on the clock. Whipped 29-12 to that point on second-chance points, the Hawks got Nos. 13 and 14 to finish off the Rockets.

"They've got a lot of guys that are not that athletic, but their offensive rebounds killed us all night," said Smith, who averaged 17.7 points and 15.7 rebounds over the previous three games. "Carl Landry's a hard worker, [Luis] Scola, and Chuck Hayes. You've got to give those guys a lot of credit because they played their butts off.

"[On the final play] my man and Bibby's man stayed glued to him. All I want to do is just crash the boards. Just in case he missed, I was there for the putback. That's all that matters to us. It doesn't matter how many minutes I play, it just matters about that last shot."
