The Atlanta Hawks overwhelmed the visiting Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night, cruising to a 120-93 victory and climbing within a half game of Orlando for fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Josh Smith was terrific for the Hawks, needing just 27 minutes amass 24 points and nine rebounds. Atlanta also benefited from trio of Jannero Pargo, Marvin Williams and Willie Green coming off the bench to pour in 43 points.
The Bobcats had no match for Atlanta's offense, surrendering 47 field goals on just 83 attempts, and allowing Atlanta to shoot over 47 percent from beyond the three point line.
The win pushes Atlanta to 32-23, while Charlotte falls to an NBA-worst 7-45.
There's also the chance they get Anthony Davis in the draft at least, right?
