|Veterans maintain first quarter lead for Hawks||11.12.08 at 6:15 pm ET|
Last season one of the most impressive factors of the Hawks series against the Celtics was their youth and inexperience. This summer, however, they have added veteran leadership to their bench. Mo Evans and Flip Murray pushed their younger teammates during training camp and are one of the reasons why head coach Mike Woodson thinks the Hawks have been so successful. With Murray and Evans on the court, the Hawks stopped a Celtics run to cap off the first quarter with a three-point dagger from Murray.
