Elias: Big Game For Josh Smith

The Hawks avenged an 11-point loss to the 76ers last Friday with a 23-point smack down victory in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Rookie John Jenkins and Mike Scott along with Al Horford all had great games for the Hawks, but it was do-it-all forward Josh Smith who stole the show.

To put Smith’s dominant performance into perspective, Elias Sports Bureau breaks it down:

Big Game For Smith

From Elias: Josh Smith scored 28 points, hauled in 12 rebounds and handed out four assists for the Hawks in their win over the 76ers. It was the ninth time in his career that Smith had that many points, rebounds and assists in a game. Since the team moved to Atlanta in 1968, only two Hawks players had more such games than Smith: Dominique Wilkins (15) and Walt Bellamy (10).
