The Warriors managed to bring the game within 4 late in the third behind the scoring of Dorell Wright, currently leading the Warriors with 26 points. The next closest Warrior in scoring is Louis Amundson, who has 10 points on 5-7 shooting.

The Warriors are getting next to nothing from their ‘big three’ in David Lee (6 points), Monta Ellis (7), and Stephen Curry (7). They do amount for 6 of the Warriors 9 fouls though.

Al Horford leads the Hawks with 17 points and 13 rebounds. Josh Smith is nearing a double double with 14 points and 9 rebounds.
