Hawks are toast

If Joe Johnson's ankle injury is serious - he left wearing a boot on his right foot - the Hawks will not win a game in this series.

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."

DANCING USHERS - You had to see it to believe it. Hip hop star Usher attended the first two games of the series. On Thursday, when the Dancing Usher got up and did his thing, the real Usher joined in. It was quite a scene.
