Same old...Gutless Hawks

Lets see....Wikipedia says an NBA basketball court is..94 feet by 50 feet.   In every NBA arena.   The basket is a steel rim 18 inches diameter with an attached net affixed to a backboard that measures 6 feet by 3.5 feet and one basket is at each end of the court. The white outlined box on the backboard is 18 inches high and 2 feet wide. At almost all levels of competition, the top of the rim is exactly 10 feet above the court and 4 feet inside the baseline.

So...the Atlanta hawks play on virtually the same court in they do in Indianapolis.

So....what the problem is?

The courts are the same.  At home and on the road.   The baskets are the home and on the road.   The ball is the same.  At home or on the road.

Then why can't these fools play well on the road?

You tell me.   It must be mental.   But I just don't get it.  When I played ball...I used to love playing in hostile environments.  Made me  harder!   I loved the look on the other teams cheerleaders and fans when I scored and we won.

But these Atlanta Hawks?


Here's yet another example:
