It looks like the Atlanta Hawks will go into their postseason matchup against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic with a six-game losing streak.

Gerald Henderson has 16 points and D.J. Augustin added 13 to post the Charlotte Bobcats to a 61-43 lead through two quarters at the Time Warner Cable Arena.

Dante Cunningham netted 10 points and Kwame Brown has eight for the Bobcats, who shot 61-percent (26-for-43) from the field and dished 17 assists.

The Hawks starters have played for about half of the first 24 minutes of the game with terrible results. They have netted just 10 points on 5-for-18 shooting from the field.

Atlanta has turned the basketball over 10 times and has just six assists on 17 field goals.

Josh Powell leads the Hawks with nine points and Jamal Crawford has eight.

Etan Thomas has six points in a game that coach Larry Drew has played everyone other than Pape Sy.

Josh Smith leads the starters with four points for Atlanta, which hasn't dropped six straight since Feb. 2008.
