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

The Atlanta Hawks had been here before. In fact, they didn't even have to go back that far to remember the same situation, either.

In Game 5 of their series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, Atlanta was staring at a 26-point deficit as they tried to take advantage in the Eastern Conference semifinals matchup.

On Monday, Atlanta trailed by as many as 18 before storming back to win. So why couldn't they do it again?

"There's no quit," Atlanta coach Nate McMillan said after his team's 109-106 win.
