Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Most of the Atlanta Hawks' key players were on the bench in the fourth quarter. This time, it wasn't because of injuries.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim returned from a knee injury to score 19 points and Dion Glover also had 19 as the Hawks posted their most lopsided victory in nearly four years, 111-79 over the struggling Utah Jazz.

Atlanta has a talented roster that has been decimated by injuries thus far. All-Star center Theo Ratliff is sidelined with a hip flexor and forward Chris Crawford is done for the year with a torn ACL.

Abdur-Rahim joined the list of injuries last week with a left knee strain but returned with a vengeance. He made 6-of-8 shots from the floor and 7-of-8 free throws in 28 minutes, sitting out most of the second half as Atlanta was never challenged after halftime.

"(The knee) was fine," he said. "It's not where it was or where it should be, but it was good enough to go out and play. It was great getting out there. I hate not playing and not being able to play."

The Hawks went on 12-0 burst bridging the first and second quarters to turn a one-point deficit into a 32-21 lead. Cal Bowdler scored six of its eight points during the run for Atlanta, which finished with six players in double figures.

The Hawks led 50-35 at halftime and opened the third quarter with a 20-3 run to put away the game. Glover and Emanual Davis contributed five points apiece and Abdur-Rahim added four in the run.

The Hawks snapped a four-game losing streak and won by at least 30 points for the first time since December 2, 1997 at Dallas. Atlanta snapped a seven-game slide to Utah, defeating the Jazz for the first time since March 11, 1997 at The Omni.

Toni Kukoc, who has been bothered by a foot injury, scored 13 points and Jason Terry added 12 for the Hawks, who shot 57 percent (43-of-75) and surpassed their season high by 21 points.

"The key was we got healthy quick," said Terry, who missed two games earlier this season with a tight hamstring. "I've never seen a bunch of guys get healthy as we did. Winning does that to you. It's huge to have Shareef back, it's huge to get Toni's confidence a boost and I'm feeling 95-100 percent now."

Nazr Mohammed contributed 11 points and seven rebounds and Hanno Mottola chipped in 10 points and a career-high nine boards.

Donyell Marshall was the only Utah player in double figures with 12 points. Perennial All-Stars Karl Malone and John Stockton combined for just 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting.

Malone managed just seven points in 28 minutes, marking just the 26th time in his career he has failed to score in double figures.

"It always surprises me when I don't," he said. "It happens about once every four or five years.

The Jazz were outplayed in every phase of the game and suffered their worst loss since a 46-point road defeat against the Los Angeles Lakers on February 4, 2000. They were outscored in every quarter and trailed by as many as 36 points with 2:25 remaining.

"They quit," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "I never had a team walk out in my life. It's very obvious that we're not playing basketball the way were capable of. I really can't put my finger on it. I've been around basketball too long, I know that they can play harder than that."

"We're not competing," said Stockton, who made just 1-of-5 shots in 23 minutes. "That should be a given every night and it isn't. Until it is, we're gonna have some hard times. It's easy if you want to do a lot of thinking about it, but you have to get it done."

The Hawks held Utah to 38 percent (29-of-75) shooting and had a massive 45-28 rebounding edge.

"We had a lot of rebounds," Terry said. "Rebounds led to transition baskets, that's our game. We need to get out in transition so we can take the pressure off our half-court offense."

"We did a nice job defensively," Atlanta coach Lon Kruger said. "We were setting a tone and converting some stops and got some transition buckets. A lot of different guys played well tonight."
