Smith's buzzer-beating dunk helps Hawks solve Magic


By Matt Winkeljohn, for NBA.com

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- Josh Smith picked a strange time to go quiet for most of Wednesday night, but an absolutely fabulous time to make a boatload of noise.

His buzzer-beating tomahawk dunk of a teammate's missed shot gave Atlanta an 86-84 win over the Magic and may have resonated across the Hawks' collective psyche like a cannon shot in an echo chamber.

Nevermind that Smith played an uncommonly low-key game up to the final moments, or that Atlanta (46-25) faces an uphill climb in catching the Magic (50-22) atop the Southeast Division. The Magic had beaten the Hawks six straight times dating back to last season, four straight in Philips Arena. Already this season, Orlando whipped Atlanta by 18, 32 and 17 points.

As the local newspaper said, the Magic had the Hawks' number and a couple of their numerals.

It looked after Atlanta lost an 11-point lead over the final 5:37.8 that it might happen again even as they played a balanced game with six scorers between 10 points and Joe Johnson's 17.

No wonder Smith and his teammates jumped around like mad after he flew in from the right baseline to reach high with his left hand and thrown down a missed shot by Johnson with 0.2 seconds left.

"I had to celebrate a little bit because it's been a long time coming for us to be able to knock off Orlando," Smith said after scoring 15 points with seven rebounds. "We know that we can play with any elite team."

When these teams met in Atlanta on Thanksgiving night, the Hawks led by 12 at halftime yet lost by 17. They were torched twice in Orlando.

Wednesday, they missed 11 of their first 12 shots as the Magic built a 15-2 lead. The home team couldn't handle the hometown man, as Orlando's Dwight Howard grabbed nine of his game-high 24 rebounds in the first period.

The Hawks' defense was stingy from there, and other than a late flurry by Vince Carter that saw him score eight of his 16 points in the fourth quarter -- including five in an eight-second span that included his game-tying 3-pointer with 9.9 seconds left -- Orlando's best offense was Howard's free throw shooting.

Rashard Lewis missed all four of his 3-pointers for Orlando (and whiffed on the box-out on Smith's game-winning play), and the Magic made just five of 18 shots in the fourth quarter, 10 of 33 in the second half, and 18 of 53 after the first quarter.

"They know our plays ... we know theirs," Atlanta coach Mike Woodson said.

Howard, though, made six of eight free throws in the fourth quarter and 11 of 15 overall as Atlanta backup center Zaza Pachulia burned five fouls defending him, and Al Horford added four.

Through three-and-a-half quarters, Smith scored just seven points before making four straight free throws over two possessions to give the Hawks a 78-67 lead with 5:38 left in the game.

Game. Not. Over.

"We started looking over our shoulders a little bit when we had an eight- or nine-point lead, and they used the free throw line to their advantage by driving the ball," Woodson said.

Six straight Orlando points came at the free-throw line as Atlanta had three straight horrible turnovers. Smith's behind-the-back pass in the lane was intercepted, Jamal Crawford stepped out of bounds and Johnson had an awkward sideways pass picked off in the lane.

When Howard dunked to pull the Magic within 78-77 with 2:26 left, there was an eery vibe.

"The Hawks were obviously motivated to get a win tonight," said Magic point guard Jameer Nelson, who led Orlando with 20 points and added eight assists. "We'd beaten them all year so I'm sure they wanted to win."

After an Atlanta timeout, the teams traded up-tight turnovers (Horford and Howard, both unforced), and the Hawks worked the ball around. As the shot clock wound down, the ball ended up in Smith's hands way out on the right baseline -- in what Woodson has over the years told him is a personal no-fly zone. But Smith let fly even as fans howled, No!

Swish! Hawks lead 80-77 with 1:38 to go.

"I don't hear anything," Smith said of his 20-footer. "When I'm on that court, it's just the nine other players plus the referees."

Two free throws by each team left Atlanta still up three, when Carter drove hard past Horford off an inbound pass to dunk energetically with 17 seconds left. Johnson hit two more free throws, and then Carter's trey tied the game with 9.9 seconds left.

Out of timeouts, Atlanta inbounded and took off.

Johnson ended up with the ball, and drove down the left side of the lane. Carter never left his feet in defending Johnson as the Atlanta shooter faded away to take a 16-foot jumper left of the basket.

The ball bounced high off the far iron, a tad away from Johnson and toward the Orlando bench. Howard had vacated prime real estate in the paint to help on Johnson, yet Lewis was on the right baseline.

He stared as Smith swooped around him and soared.

"This was a tough finish," said Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy. "The Hawks outplayed us for a good portion of the game. Vince hit a great shot to tie the game up, and then he played great defense on Joe on the other end. Unfortunately, we forgot to box out on the weak side."

Woodson said, "Had they won the game tonight, it wouldn't have meant anything."

But Smith took value from the win.

"It may have helped that we didn't have a timeout. They were sort of discombobulated [defensively]," Smith said minutes after combobulating the Hawks and their thoughts. "But we know we can play with anybody as long as we give a full 48 minutes like we did tonight."
