Atlanta Hawks Team Report – February 21

=== Atlanta Hawks Team Report – February 21 ===

(Sports Network) – The Atlanta Hawks were crushed by the Miami Heat, 125-92,
on Friday at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The Hawks were playing their first game since making some big news at
Thursday’s trade deadline when they traded forward Rasheed Wallace to the
Detroit Pistons as part of a three-team deal that also included the Boston
Celtics.

In the deal, Atlanta acquired forward Chris Mills from Boston and center
Zeljko Rebraca and guard Bob Sura from Detroit, but none of them were in
uniform.

Chris Crawford led Atlanta with 21 points, while Jason Terry chipped in 18 and
Stephen Jackson scored 17 in the loss.

The Hawks have lost three of their last four, and were never close in this one
as Miami jumped out to a franchise-record first-half margin of 33 points.

Atlanta’s Wesley Person suffered a sprained right knee and didn’t return.

The Hawks are off until Sunday when they visit Yao Ming and the Houston
Rockets.
