AUDIO: Larry Drew On Hawks-Magic: 'We Still Have Bullets In The Chamber'

In a Monday morning interview with 790 The Zone, [audio here] Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew claimed his team didn't waste all of its best material Saturday night. While he acknowledges letting Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard get loose was the Game 1 plan -- and that it worked beautifully -- Drew says there's more where that came from.

He also defines Jameer Nelson as "the head of the snake" and the key to the whole operation, which makes Stan Van Gundy's complimentary impression of the Kirk Hinrich trade clearer. 

Speaking of Nelson, Drew says the Magic guard's "see you in round two" remark to Derrick Rose could be used as bulleting board material for Game 2. If the Hawks coach somehow convinced his players to forget about that comment, play one of their best games of the season, and then remind them about it in advance of the second game, that might be his best coaching feat ever.
