Hawks are toast
The Cavs are up 2-0 and are playing at a high level. Johnson sprained his ankle in the third quarter, but he was having another pedestrian outing - 5 of 15 from the field.
The Hawks were already hurting with center Al Horford and forward Marvin Williams sidelined. Johnson's injury could be the death blow.
THROWING THE HAMMER DOWN - Wally Szczerbiak's dunk in the second quarter sparked the overflow crowd.
"The team gets a kick out of it when I throw one down," he said. "That's No. 4 or 5 on the year."
