Who would have thought that an average team in the eliminations of the NBA 2011 would beat one of the most dominant team in the East. This is one of the biggest upsets in modern day basketball. The Atlanta Hawks beating Dwight Howard, the reigning 3 defensive player of the year, and his Magic. The Hawks, led by their unassuming silent superstar Joe Johnson beat the Magic in 6 games. They won 4 games to 2. They proceed to the Eastern Conference semi-finals against the league leading Chicago Bulls which beat the Pacers in 5 games.
Joe Johnson, Josh Smith and Jamal Crawford has average more than 20 points each in this series. They synchronized in order to beat the Magic. Zsa Zsa Pachulia has also put everything on the line including his John Travolta look alike face in order to put a temporary stop to Howard's ominous pounding ways. Jamal Crawford, the Rucker Park legend, showed to the Magic that he can also be an efficient closer. Teamwork did it for the Hawks. The Hawks will say hi to the Bulls for Jameer Nelson.
