Drew Embarrassed By Hawks' Loss, Promises Changes
The Atlanta Hawks scored just 58 points in an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday.
The Hawks went 2-for-21 in the second quarter.
Larry Drew promised changes when talking to his team following the game.
“This was a very, very embarrassing,” Drew said. “From where we were as a team to where we are right now we have lost all sense of team on both ends of the floor. Why that has happened, I really can’t put my finger on it. To have a team that started off so well, that really trusted and believed in each other at both ends of the floor, we have lost that sense of trust for one another. Why that has happened, I really have no idea. I will say, it’s time that we do shake things up. As we go back to Atlanta to prepare for Brooklyn (at home Wednesday), there will be some changes. We have to find a group that will compete on both ends at a high level with no excuses, with no finger-pointing as far as blaming officials, blaming each other. We have to go out and we have to play our first few games of the season.
“We need to shake things up and that will be the first line of business when we get back to Atlanta is to make some changes within our lineup.”
