Hawks fans have been rooting for their team to lose for months, hoping for better lottery position. It’s a miserable position.
They finally got a great chance to cheer against the opponent last night.
Though Atlanta trailed the Heat by 30 in the final minute, Udonis Haslem – who hadn’t attempted a free throw all season – missed the first of two free throws. A second miss would give ticketed Atlanta fans free food.
But Haslem nailed the free throw and shrugged off the dismayed crowd as the Miami bench went wild.
