The Hawks blew leads at the end of regulation and overtime on Saturday night to blow a winnable game against Chicago. I have a theory on why the Hawks struggle so much in end-game sitations. Most NBA teams attack on those possessions by getting the ball to their best penetrator to either score or draw contact, usually the latter (real or imagined in Dick Bavetta's mind's eye). In those situations, the Hawks get the ball to Joe Johnson, who is an excellent scorer but he's not great at attacking the basket and getting to the foul line. The solution, ultimately, will be Marvin Williams maturing into the guy who has the ball in his hands at the end of a close game.
Incidentally, there's unfortunate, very unfortunate, and then there's watching Ben Wallace hit two free throws to tie the game in the final minute.
