Mike Woodson Wants Bigger Home Crowds

by November 18, 2009

The Hawks’ coach realizes that his team is putting something special together, and wants the folks of Atlanta to see it up close: “All I can say to our fans is we need your support,’ said Woodson. ‘These guys are playing for something this year, man. It’s fun watching us play. I know the fans are there and we just ask you to come out and support us because they [the players] need it. I think amazing things can happen when the house is filled.’ The official turnout of Monday’s game was 12,997. However, it is unlikely that there were more than 3,000 fans in the stands at tip-off.”
