Hawks Vs. Thunder Final Score: Atlanta Bests Oklahoma City, 97-90

The Atlanta Hawks were able to upset the Oklahoma City Thunder 97-90 without their best player Joe Johnson. The Hawks were led by Josh Smith who scored 30 points with 13 of those coming in the fourth quarter to hold off the Thunder. Smith had a pair of huge dunks late in the fourth quarter to give the Hawks an eight-point lead with 4:41 left in the game.

That lead was not safe as Kevin Durant scored eight of his 35 points over the last four minutes of the game, but the last points for the Thunder came with 1:47 left in the game. Smith then finished off the Thunder by scoring the next five points to give the Hawks the 97-90 to win.
