For once, the shot clock wasn‘t in the Hawks‘ favor (they were on the road), and now they‘re planning on filing a protest with the League: “As you might imagine, Mike Woodson was pretty steamed. ‘Q: What happened with the apparent shot clock malfunction? A: I’m not going to comment on it at this time. We’re just going to file a protest without a doubt, let the league review it at the two-minute mark and then see what they think. Q: What role did that play in the game? A: We’ve got a one-point lead with the ball going the other way and we’re rushing to get a shot because the clock is not in our favor. You figure it out.”‘
