Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Hawks gave coach Lenny Wilkens a win in what might have been his final home appearance with the team, posting a 111-109 double-overtime victory over the New Jersey Nets.

Wilkens, the winningest coach in NBA history with 1,179 victories, guided the Hawks to winning seasons in each of his first six years in Atlanta. But with the Hawks enduring numerous problems on and off the court this season, wholesale changes are likely in the offseason and Wilkens could be the first casualty.

After squandering an eight-point lead in the final 1:50 of regulation, the Hawks outlasted the Nets in the second overtime, taking a 109-107 lead on rookie Jason Terry's jumper with 3:23 left.

"We never quit," Wilkens said. "The guys scrambled and defended when the game looked like it was over. We hung in there. We wanted to finish on a high note, the last game of the season (at home)."

Lorenzen Wright hit a 12-footer to make it 111-107 before New Jersey's Keith Van Horn made a six-footer with 2:04 to play. Neither team scored in the last two minutes. Van Horn drove the baseline in the final seconds but had his shot blocked by Wright.

"I didn't want the game to go into a third overtime," Wright said. "He almost blew by me. I jumped up as hard as I could. Thank goodness I got it."

Terry and LaPhonso Ellis scored 16 points apiece for the Hawks, who have won two straight following a nine-game losing streak.

Van Horn scored 24 points and Lucious Harris 22 for the Nets, who suffered their 10th straight defeat and reached 50 losses for the 11th time since joining the NBA in 1976.

"It's a matter of personal pride and team pride, just going out there and playing as hard as we can," Van Horn said. "To a lot people, It doesn't make a difference. I would like to win the game and the other guys would like to win the game."

Atlanta's Dikembe Mutombo grabbed 22 boards and virtually wrapped up the NBA's rebounding title. If Mutombo grabbed no rebounds in the season finale, Los Angeles Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal would have to pull down 38.

"I think it's a great accomplishment," Mutombo said. "It's feels really good. I'm just proud that as bad as this year was, I was able to come out and do my thing. But I'm disappointed with the fact I'm going home tomorrow. I'm wondering what I'm going to do."

New Jersey played most of the game with only seven players after center Jim McIlvaine went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter and did not return.

"We've been down, we've been depleted," Van Horn said. "We've been giving effort every night. It's tough to win when you're missing so many cylinders."

After New Jersey's Kendall Gill hit 1-of-2 from the line to tie it, 99-99, with 27 seconds left in regulation, Mutombo missed a five-foot hook shot with four seconds, forcing overtime.

New Jersey jumped to a 104-99 lead in the first extra session, but Atlanta outscored the Nets, 5-1, in final 29 seconds, tying it on Jim Jackson's layup with 10 seconds left.
