Warriors Vs. Hawks: W's Come Out Angry, Take 48-38 Halftime Lead

Apparently all it took was the worst game of the season for the Golden State Warriors to have a fire light under their rear ends.

Golden State used a complete team effort in the first half at the Phillips Arena Wednesday evening, holding the Atlanta Hawks to a meager 32.6 percent shooting in the first half, taking a 48-38 advantage into the locker room at the half.

David Lee leads the way so far with 12 points and 7 rebounds, but everyone has been getting themselves some, with Monta Ellis scoring nine and seven assists, Ekpe Udoh eight and five boards, Nate Robinson and Klay Thompson each have six off the bench, while Dorrel Wright added five and a block. They remain ice cold from three-point land however, continuing their poor showing from last night with a 1-7 clip in the first half.

The W's are really hustling, out rebounding Atlanta 33-18. But they still had too many turnovers, committing eight in the first half. Aside from that, the Warriors have been pretty spot on thus far.

Jeff Teague and Marvin Williams each have eight points for the Hawks, while Joe Johnson and Zaza Pachulia each have six. They're also shooting 2-12 from downtown, which isn't helping their cause much either.

Hopefully Golden State can keep their foot on the gas in the second half to secure a much needed victory.
