The Hawks clinged to an 85-84 as Crawford lead the charge down the court with about a five second differential between the shot clock and the game clock. Stifled by some tough Orlando defense, he was unable to make a pass to Al Horford or Joe Johnson and kept the ball in his hands as the clock ticked down to all zeros.
And then this happened:
An amped up sold-out Philips Arena crowd erupted in a way it hasn't since the first round of the 2008 playoffs against the Boston Celtics as the Hawk won a Game 3 with the series tied at 1-1 for the first time since 1964 when the team was in St. Louis.
They also helped Hawks fans forget about those terrible two home games against the Magic in the second round last year.
