Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Hawks succeeded in playing the role of spoiler after failing two nights ago. In both cases, the Indiana Pacers were the victims.

Jason Terry scored 13 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Hawks to a 104-93 victory over the Pacers, who fell one game behind the Boston Celtics in the battle for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Celtics edged the Chicago Bulls, 106-104, on Thursday.

The Pacers will quickly have to shake off this loss since they visit Boston on Friday. Indiana, which reached the NBA Finals last year, is in danger of missing the playoffs.

"I didn't think it was because of lack of effort. Guys tried hard, it just didn't go our way tonight," Pacers first-year coach Isiah Thomas said. "I just thought we'd be a little more poised."

Looking past this game was inexcusable since the Hawks nearly knocked off the Celtics on Tuesday, falling 115-112 in overtime. But whereas Paul Pierce did not allow Boston to lose that game by exploding for 41 points, Indiana stars Reggie Miller and Jalen Rose were unable to carry their team.

Miller finished with 24 points but had just five in the fourth quarter, when Terry took over the game. Rose scored just 16 on 6-of-16 shooting.

"I'm very disappointed," Rose said. "We didn't come out and play like we were playing for our playoff lives. We didn't find a way to play defense. We played the entire game trading baskets."

Terry hit 11-of-20 shots, including five 3-pointers, and added six rebounds and six assists.

"My confidence has stayed high," Terry said. "Last year, it was up and down, practice to practice. I would have come to some practices last year and not even have taken a shot."

Indiana's front line of Al Harrington, Jermaine O'Neal and Sam Perkins also had fits with Hawks center Nazr Mohammed, who had 18 points and 15 rebounds in 23 minutes. Atlanta rookie DerMarr Johnson added 14 on 6-of-8 shooting off the bench.

"I was just trying to go out there and get offensive rebounds and my teammates hit me on the block," Mohammed said. "We didn't want to have another moral victory. We really wanted to execute and leave it on the floor."

The Hawks opened the fourth quarter with a 9-2 run as Terry hit a foul line jumper and a 3-pointer, giving them an 83-76 lead.

"We them let them get out to the quick lead in the fourth and we had to play catch-up," Miller said. "We just didn't make our shots or execute down the stretch. We weren't able to seize the moment."

After a basket by Austin Croshere and a free throw by Tyus Edney for Indiana, Terry connected on another 3-pointer and set up Johnson for a dunk to increase the advantage to 88-79 with 7:43 left.

After a pair of free throws by Croshere pulled the Pacers within 90-85 with 5:02 remaining, the Hawks scored the next eight points on a jumper by Cal Bowdler, a three-point play by Mohammed and Terry's fifth 3-pointer.

Miller converted a pair of free throws, but Toni Kukoc followed with a 3-pointer to give Atlanta its biggest lead at 101-87 with 2:48 left.

The Hawks snapped a four-game losing streak and won for only the fourth time in 20 games. The Pacers fell to 11-25 on the road, including 16 losses in their last 22 contests.

O'Neal scored 11 of his 16 points in the first quarter when the Pacers built a 27-20 lead.

A follow shot by O'Neal gave Indiana its biggest lead at 32-22 with 9:42 left in the second quarter.

But the Hawks responded with a 16-6 run as Johnson and Terry combined for 14 points. A 3-pointer by Johnson with 5:36 left capped the run and tied the game at 38-38.

A pair of free throws and a short jumper by Rose in the final two minutes of the half gave the Pacers a 54-49 lead at intermission.

Indiana played without starting point guard Travis Best, who is bothered by a sore left heel.

"His big toe is really bothering him," Thomas said. "He's limping around pretty badly."

Edney played 25 minutes in Best's absence and scored 10 points.
