Hawks fall back to earth

So much for the Hawks love-fest we’ve been having of late.

O’Neal’s perfect start wasn’t terribly difficult — he had six dunks and two layups in the opening half. He set the tone for Miami, which held Atlanta to a season-low nine points in the first quarter and built a 56-35 halftime lead on the way to beating the Hawks for the ninth straight time.

Was this game merely an aberration against one the Eastern Conference’s elite (and newly energized) teams, or is it merely a sign of things (that have been) to come? 76ers and Bobcats at home and at Raptors and Nets all before the New Year – any chance we can go .500 in that stretch, especially getting some revenge against the Raptors?
