Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Theo Ratliff showed Jermaine O'Neal how to block a shot. Ratliff matched his career high with nine blocks, swatting away O'Neal's potential game-winning dunk with only a second left as the Atlanta Hawks held on for a 92-89 victory over the Indiana Pacers, who dropped their 11th straight road game. Ratliff had nine blocks in a game for the third time this season and fifth of his career. He last accomplished the feat on February 14 at Indiana. "I was doing what I do, helping my teammates out on defense," Ratliff said. "Fortunately, I was able to get the block and not foul him." The Hawks grabbed a 90-89 lead with 6.4 seconds left when O'Neal was called for goaltending on Dion Glover's layup. "That's what I always try to do - quick lay-in, put it on the glass," Glover said. "I know if they block it on the glass, it was going to be a goaltending. I saw Jermaine coming and I saw Reggie (Miller). I knew I could get over Reggie. I put it on the glass and it was a goaltending." Off the ensuing timeout, O'Neal got the ball at the top of the arc, blew by Shareef Abdur-Rahim and rose for a two-handed jam. "I was beat," Abdur-Rahim said. "I was really beat. Theo just cleaned me up. That's what he does." Ratliff - who led the NBA in blocks in the 2000-01 season - timed his jump perfectly to slap the ball out of the All-Star forward's grasp. "I was telling the guys before in the huddle, 'They are down one, they are going to try to get the ball to O'Neal in the post,'" Ratliff said. "No matter how much you harp on it, it's not going to change anything," O'Neal said of Ratliff's block. "They didn't make the call, so I am going to go with it." Ranked second in the NBA with 3.00 blocks per game, Ratliff registered 28 blocks in four games against the Pacers this season. "That was a big-time play at the end of the game," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "But he had nine blocks; he changed a lot of shots." Glenn Robinson scored 23 points and Jason Terry added 20 and 10 assists as Atlanta recorded its fourth straight home win and earned a split of its season series with Indiana. O'Neal tallied 13 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, but the Pacers still have not won on the road since an 83-72 triumph at New Orleans on February 12. "That was a very tough loss for us," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "I don't think you can ever afford to lose any games and it's tough that we dropped this one tonight." The loss also dropped the Pacers into a virtual tie with the Philadelphia 76ers for third place in the Eastern Conference. After posting back-to-back home wins, Indiana's road misery resumed where it began. On February 16 at Philips Arena, Reggie Miller was ejected as part of a flurry of five technical fouls in less than two minutes of the first quarter, and the Pacers never really recovered in a 99-86 loss. Saturday's meeting between the Central Division foes featured 11 lead changes and 12 ties, including 48-48 at halftime. Miller hit from the arc three minutes into the third to open a 59-52 advantage. But the Hawks outscored the Pacers, 21-7, during the final nine minutes of the period. Robinson tallied nine points during the surge as Atlanta grabbed a 73-66 lead entering the final period. "It's so important for us to win games," O'Neal said. "Once we see daylight, another thunderstorm comes in. We have to keep on getting better, keep learning." The Pacers answered again, putting together a 12-4 run to start the fourth. As the shot clock expired, O'Neal nailed a 3-pointer with 8:07 to play as Indiana edged back to front, 78-77, setting up a dramatic finish.
