Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Without leading scorer Shareef Abdur-Rahim, the Atlanta Hawks still delivered a victory over the Chicago Bulls.

Jason Terry scored 23 points to lead seven players in double figures and matched a career high with 13 assists as the Hawks defeated the struggling Bulls, 112-96, for their season-best fifth straight home win.

Abdur-Rahim is in Berkeley, California, where his wife, Dee Dee, gave birth to the couple's first child Saturday morning.

"A good win, obviously, without Reef," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "I thought Jason's quickness from the start was significant, creating opportunities for others."

Alan Henderson stepped into the starting lineup and contributed a season-high 16 points, including 12 in the opening quarter, and added 11 rebounds. The 6-9 forward-center helped the Hawks post their eighth win in 11 games and clinch the first winning month in two seasons under Kruger.

"Iíve been here three years, I am tired of losing," Terry said. "Everyone in this locker room feels the same way. It's turning around slowly but surely and we're building for the future every day."

Terry tied the assist total he recorded at Chicago on December 15, 2000. The eight wins in March were the most by the Hawks in any month since April 1999, when they were 10-6 under Lenny Wilkens.

Jalen Rose had 26 points for the Bulls, who have lost three straight and 11 of their last 12 games. They also dropped the season series with Atlanta, 3-1.

"There is a fine line between winning and losing in this league," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "At this point in time, it's tough, but you have to push through it. You have to get through it and do the little things, make the correct rotations defensively, stop chasing anybody. Our goal is to find our identity before the end of the season."

Abdur-Rahim, who is averaging 21.2 points and 9.4 rebounds per game, missed just the eighth game of his six-year career. A 2000 U.S. Olympian, he will rejoin the Hawks for Sunday's game at New Jersey.

Since the All-Star break, Atlanta is 12-7, tying Orlando for the third-best record in the Eastern Conference behind Detroit (14-7) and Miami (13-7).

"This team since the All-Star break has definitely come together," Terry said. "We're starting to band together. Without Shareef tonight, it was just another challenge."

The Bulls never led, but they scored the first six points of the final quarter as a layup by Rose made it 86-82 with 10:46 to play.

"We got a little careless to start the fourth," Kruger said. "In a game like that, it kind of goes to 16 or goes to four. It went to four and it was a ballgame. I would have liked to avoid that, but the response to that was pretty good."

The Hawks answered with a 15-4 run to put the game out of reach. Terry chipped in six points, capping the outburst with a three-point play with just under eight minutes left that opened a 101-86 advantage.

"We have a lot of young guys that haven't played many games," Bulls forward Charles Oakley said. "When you come to a job, you have to perform. I'm not putting pressure on them, but it's a lot of work. It's not just during the game but in practice and having the right attitude to work. It's either in your soul or it isn't."

Fred Hoiberg had six points during 11-2 run in the second quarter that trimmed Chicago's deficit to 40-38 with 7:07 remaining. Rookie Eddy Curry capped the burst with a pair of free throws and finished with 15 points, reaching double figures for the fourth time in six games.

However, the Hawks closed the half with a 16-8 run. DerMarr Johnson nailed a pair of 3-pointers on his way to a 17-point performance and Terry supplied five points and three assists as Atlanta took a 62-52 lead into the locker room.

"We reacted very well to Shareef not being here," Johnson said. "Alan came up with 12 points in the first quarter and it really gave us a lift."

Ira Newble had 14 points and Nazr Mohammed added 10 as all five Hawks' starters reached double figures. Hanno Mottola and Jacque Vaughn contributed 12 and 10 points, respectively, off the bench.
