Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- If the Denver Nuggets had someone like Glenn Robinson, they might not be mired in a 13-game losing streak. Robinson shook off a poor shooting night to drill a 3-pointer with 7.8 seconds remaining that lifted the Atlanta Hawks to a 92-86 victory over the woeful Nuggets. The loss continued a trio of losing streaks for Denver. In addition to their overall slide, the Nuggets have lost 15 consecutive road games and 13 straight visits to Atlanta dating to December 10, 1988. "It's hard. I'm taking it tough like everybody in the locker room," Nuggets veteran forward Juwan Howard said. "We all care. We're right there, we just can't close it out at the end. I can't point any fingers but at ourselves. We just need to look in the mirror at ourselves." The worst team in the Western Conference, Denver's biggest problem all season has been an inability to make shots, especially at the end of close games. This one was no different as leading scorer Howard fired an airball with 32 seconds to go, leaving the Nuggets down by one point. On the next possession, Jason Terry passed to the right wing to Dion Glover, who swung the ball into the corner. Robinson had made just three of his first 13 shots but knocked down the jumper, beating the shot clock and giving the Hawks a 90-86 lead. "It was a big shot for us," Robinson said. "I'd rather miss all my shots and make the shot that counts the most. As a shooter and a scorer, you know you're going to miss and make shots. Whatever makes you laugh will make you cry sometimes." "That's what shooters and scorers do," Hawks coach Terry Stotts added. "I'm glad he hit the three, but I was most proud of how we made that play." Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 30 points and 10 rebounds and Terry added 17 points, 12 assists and eight boards for Atlanta, which has won five of its last six home games. "I'm hungry. It's the end of the season," Terry said. "I want to take advantage of everything on the court. Winning to me is everything. Whatever it takes, I want this team to win so bad. That's the level I need to play at all the time." Despite an 0-of-7 first half, Robinson scored 11 points. "I missed my first six or seven shots," Robinson said. "It just didn't come to me. The second half was much better than the first." "He had good looks early in the first quarter," Stotts said. "Every shot he took was his shot. He then hit a few in the second half." Howard scored 20 points for the Nuggets, who shot 41 percent (33-of-80), slightly better than their season mark. Two free throws by rookie Nene Hilario gave Denver a 78-74 lead with 7:19 to play before Atlanta used defensive pressure to put together an 11-2 burst. Terry had two free throws, a dunk and two terrific transition plays to set up Glover for a pair of easy baskets and an 85-80 lead with 3:22 left. "In the fourth quarter, we got aggressive and they turned the ball over," Terry said. "We were sloppy but kept our composure and kept with it." The Nuggets made one more push. Georgia native Donnell Harvey and Howard had hammer dunks and rookie Vincent Yarbrough sank a 15-footer for an 86-85 lead with 1:09 to go. On the next possession, Abdur-Rahim had his shot blocked but recovered and made a jump hook with 55 seconds left. Glover scored 14 points for the Hawks, who shot 47 percent (37-of-78). Hilario scored 14 points and Yarbrough added 11 for the Nuggets, who held a 44-39 advantage on the glass but surrendered 28 points on 20 turnovers. "Every single damn loss is heartbreaking," Nuggets coach Jeff Bzdelik said. "We beat ourselves more often than not." Abdur-Rahim scored 15 points in the first half as Atlanta grabbed a 43-40 lead. It grew to 70-66 after three quarters, but Denver opened the final period with a 9-0 spurt.
