GAME RECAP

Steve Smith scored six of his 33 points in overtime and Mookie Blaylock had five of his 17 in the extra session as the Atlanta Hawks overcame a 14-point halftime deficit to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers, 109-99, snapping a five-game losing streak.

The Hawks, who did not lead during regulation, took charge in overtime, scoring the first 11 points before the 76ers finally got on the board with just 1:47 remaining on a three-pointer by Derrick Coleman.

Alan Henderson scored 19 points and had a season-high 12 rebounds off the bench, Dikembe Mutombo 14 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks, Blaylock 13 assists and Christian Laettner 14 points for Atlanta, which beat Philadelphia for the sixth straight time and improved to 6-1 in games at Georgia Tech's Alexander Coliseum. Atlanta is 5-1 in overtime this season.

"We didn't quit on ourselves," Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens said. "When things are going bad, sometimes there's a tendency to drop your head and figure you can't get out of it. We kept working at it, made some adjustments and they paid off for us.

"When we got to overtime I felt better. The effort not to quit and stay in there paid off big. We got terrific play out of Steve and Mookie and I thought Alan was tremendous."

Coleman collected 24 points and 11 boards and rookie Tim Thomas scored nine of his 19 points on three-pointers for the Sixers, who dropped their fourth consecutive game and fifth straight on the road. Philadelphia is 0-3 in overtime, including losses in each of their last two games.

The Hawks shot 49 percent (43-of-88) from the field and held the Sixers to 45 percent (36-of-80). Atlanta held a 47-37 edge on the glass and also converted 20 Philadelphia turnovers into 20 points. The Sixers hit 8-of-15 three-pointers.

"I'm just disappointed," Philadelphia coach Larry Brown said. "We had our chances but we let them get back in the game. We seemingly righted ourselves in the fourth quarter, then we couldn't get a stop down the stretch. Then we miss two shots at the buzzer and we kind of packed it in during overtime."

Atlanta, which trailed 72-66 entering the fourth quarter, pulled into a tie on a follow shot by Tyrone Corbin at the 10:23 mark. A little over three minutes later, the Sixers moved back ahead 81-76, on a jumper by Coleman.

With 2:53 left, Allen Iverson, who scored 18 points, converted a three-point play off a fast-break layup to give Philadelphia a 90-84 lead. With 54 seconds remaining, Thomas, who appeared to be bumped out of bounds from behind by Mutombo, lost the ball and Atlanta gained possession.

Smith used the opportunity to tie the game at 92-92 with a drive in the lane 23 seconds later. Iverson then hit two free throws and Smith answered with a jumper to tie it with 12.5 seconds to go.

On Philadelphia's last possession of regulation, Thomas had the ball knocked out of his hands, but Jackson got the ball and had a short shot in the lane just before the buzzer. The shot missed and Terry Cummings threw up another shot that rolled off the rim as the buzzer sounded.

After Smith's jumper gave the Hawks a 96-94 lead, Blaylock converted a three-point play off a drive and then fired a pass to Corbin for a fast-break layup and a 101-94 cushion with 3:12 remaining.

Two free throws by Smith and a thunderous fast-break dunk by Henderson at the 1:59 mark made it 105-94 before Coleman's three-pointer. Back-to-back baskets by Smith and Blaylock put away the game before Cummings hit a jumper for the final margin.

"We needed this one," Smith said. "There's been a lot of tension around here with trade talks, and thoughts about shaking up the team. I think we still have a great team, we just haven't put it together of late.

"We were a little tense in the first half but in the second half we came out and said 'Whatever happens, let's just go out and play.' That's what we did."

Philadelphia opened up a 56-42 halftime lead after shooting 52 percent (20-for-38) from the field and 6-for-8 from three-point range. Thomas, who had 15 points, connected on three shots from behind the arc and Coleman, with 12 points, was 2-for-3.

Atlanta climbed back into the game with a 14-2 third-quarter spurt. Laettner, who had eight points during the run, started it with a jumper and Blaylock finished it with a driving layup to make it 70-66 with 28 seconds left in the period.

"In this league an eight- or 10-point lead with five or six minutes to go is like an eternity," Jackson said. "You have to put a game like this away early."
