Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- After the Orlando Magic feasted on cupcakes Friday, the Atlanta Hawks treated themselves to the final course on Saturday.

Jason Terry scored 28 points, including the go-ahead free throw with 17.7 seconds left, and Nazr Mohammed collected 21 points and 13 rebounds as the Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 107-104 triumph over the Magic.

Toni Kukoc came off the bench, collected 10 of his 18 points in the final period and contributed 10 assists as the Hawks battled back from an 89-83 deficit with 8:36 remaining.

"It definitely feels great to come off the game from last night," Terry said. "We knew we had to come out and play aggressive. That was a big win for us."

Tracy McGrady again torched the Hawks, leading Orlando with 40 points and 11 rebounds. He scored 32 points Friday at TD Waterhouse Centre, where the Magic routed Atlanta, 129-94.

But the All-Star missed a layup and a jumper in the final 10 seconds Saturday as Orlando's season-high four-game winning streak came to an end.

"I think we came out in the second half like we already had the game won," McGrady said. "In their eyes, they felt like the game wasn't over. So they fought until they got close and then we just fell apart."

McGrady dubbed the Chicago Bulls and the Hawks "cupcakes" on Monday following a win over Memphis. The Magic dismantled all three teams by 42, 28 and 35 points, respectively, during an undefeated homestand.

"That's every night for us," Terry said. "We have to change the mentality of the league towards us. Now we have to take it game by game."

The Hawks posted just their second victory in the last nine meetings with the Magic.

Atlanta also won for only the second time in the last eight contests overall, despite the absence of leading scorer Shareef Abdur-Rahim for most of Saturday's game.

The 6-9 forward struggled with a bruised tailbone and was replaced by Hanno Mottola 6:42 into the contest after contributing just two points, three rebounds and an assist. Abdur-Rahim also left Friday's game in the first quarter and did not return.

"Having an All-Star like Shareef hurt, that's big," Mohammed said. "That shows a lot of character. It shows what we can do if we work hard."

Kukoc hit a shot with 5:53 left as the Hawks overcame a 16-point third-quarter deficit to knot it at 93-93.

"We all were pretty aggressive. That's the way you have to play," said Kukoc, who has averaged nearly 15 points per game in his career against the Magic. "We were down and we just generated a couple of quick points, and we felt real confident we could win."

Kukoc scored and fellow reserve Mark Strickland had a breakaway dunk after intercepting a bad pass by point guard Darrell Armstrong as Atlanta increased its lead to 104-99 with 2:13 left.

"Our bench was really the key," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "When you have a guy like Shareef go down, everybody's got to give a little more. It was too painful to watch. He was not comfortable at all."

Horace Grant answered with a three-point play before Mike Miller tied it again for the Magic with 1:25 to go.

Both teams combined to miss the final five shots of the game, leaving Terry and Mohammed to take avantage of their chances from the line.

The Magic seemed ready to steamroll the Hawks with just over eight minutes to go in the third as McGrady converted a three-point play to make it 71-56.

But Terry proved the catalyst for Atlanta's comeback, scoring 11 points as the Hawks closed the quarter with a 23-10 run. The Arizona product hit a pair of free throws with 2.6 seconds remaining as Atlanta sliced the deficit to 89-87.

"When you lose to a team with no Abdur-Rahim on the floor ... you should lose the game," Magic coach Doc Rivers said. "Once Abdur-Rahim went out, that game was an easy blowout."

Less than a minute before Abdur-Rahim's departure, McGrady hit a 3-pointer during a 14-2 run. Miller added six for the Magic, who up a 27-16 cushion with 3:18 remaining in the opening period.

McGrady and Miller also combined for eight of Orlando's final 10 points in the half as the Magic took a 59-50 lead into the locker room.
