Down and out over losing their All-Star center the Atlanta Hawks found a way to pull another game out of the fire coming back from 14 points down to defeat the Charlotte Bobcats in overtime. The Hawks were outplayed for much of the night but once again showed the ability to fight all the way to the end.

"I'm just proud of our guys, said head coach Mike Budenholzer. Our guys found a way to win a game tonight. We didn't really play that well. I'm not sure either team really brought their 'A' game. I'm not sure how much fuel was in either team's tank, with them playing last night.

We feel fortunate but we're also proud of the effort. They continued to compete, continued to stay with it. Like I said, our guys found a way to win a game tonight."

Coach Budenholzer has been preaching about that competitive spirit ever since he was named as head coach of the Hawks this summer. Without Al Horford, for the first time since he was lost with a torn pectoral muscle, they had to collect themselves and pull it out at the end.
