‘One Game at a Time’

Choose your one-liner:
– Win or Go Home
– Do or Die
– Backs Against the Wall
– Must Win Game
Or choose your cliche:
– Take it one game at a time
– Play like it is Game 7

Game 6 is all that matters now. There is no use worrying about stealing Game 7, because without a win in Game 6 the season is over.

“The intensity has really picked up,” commented Al Horford after the Game 5 loss in Chicago. “We’re playing for everything. We have to regroup again and get ready for Thursday.”

Realistically, a win in Game 6 puts the Hawks in a great position. All the pressure would be on the Bulls and Atlanta has proven that they can compete at the United Center having had a chance to win at least 2 (if not all 3) games in Chicago.
