Fist-bumping Zaza (Hawks 105, Nets 88)
It was a great day to go but it took forever to get in. Still, I made the most of their $1 pre-game promotion of hotdogs, popcorn and sodas.
It was this discount that led to my migration from the Section 303 seat -- after I came back from the concession stand with another doll-to soda, a family was sitting in my seat and several down the row. So I made my way to the $30 section instead.
I really liked seeing Acie Law's energy driving to the basket and really have come to think that Zaza earns his money, too. It was interesting seeing two players from my alma mater -- Vince Carter and Marvin Williams -- and thinking they are at different levels in their careers.
I had expected the Hawks to fall behind early but they kept up, or caught up after falling behind in the first quarter. I could only stay for the half but even half a game is worthwhile.
