Atlanta Hawks erase 26-point deficit to defeat Philadelphia 76ers, take 3-2 series lead



Article Summary:

In Game 5 of their series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, Atlanta was staring at a 26-point deficit as it tried to get the advantage in the Eastern Conference semifinals matchup. So why couldn’t the Hawks do it again?

“There’s no quit,” Atlanta coach Nate McMillan said after his team’s 109-106 win in Philadelphia. “We always talk about playing a 48-minute game. It’s a long game. And it took all 48 minutes tonight to get it done.”

And as they did in Game 4, the Hawks stormed back for an improbable comeback and took a 3-2 series lead with Game 6 scheduled for Friday at home.
