Warriors vs. Hawks: Larry Drew says Atlanta 'did not respond' to Golden State's play

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew is dissatisfied his team's performance on Saturday.

The Atlanta Hawks were on the wrong side of a Golden State Warriors team looking to make a statement on Saturday. The Warriors wrapped up a seven-game road trip with a 6-1 mark after the 115-93 victory, preventing the Hawks from building on a dominating win over the Charlotte Bobcats.

Hawks coach Larry Drew was dissatisfied with the way his team responded to the Warriors' high-energy attack. As noted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Drew said that the Hawks "did not respond," after the Warriors "punched us in the mouth."

He went on to say: "The most important thing with our ball club is we have to bring energy every night. If we don't bring the energy then we are really just a below average team. If we bring the energy then I think we can compete with anybody."

Atlanta only shot 36.9 percent from the floor, and trailed by almost 30 points at one point. They'll try to get back in the win column when they take on the Washington Wizards on Tuesday.
