Interesting note here by Matt Moore on Fanhouse:
5. Josh Smith Is Like A Rollercoaster, Baby, Baby, The Hawks Need To Ride: Three Hawks losses? Josh Smith, 27 points total. Two wins? 55 points. Three losses? 11 turnovers. Two wins? 4 turnovers. Perhaps you're catching on to the pattern, here. The Hawks cannot win without a star performance from the stat-stuffer. Smith is often energized by play on the defensive end, like the 7 block performance in Game 4. The Hawks need to try and get him involved on defense so that he can finish on the fast break, which is where he's best. If he has a subpar game, that's all, folks.
