Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Jason Terry got the Atlanta Hawks off to a good start before finishing off the Detroit Pistons. Terry scored 12 of his 22 points in the first quarter and added nine assists as the Hawks cruised to a 91-82 victory over the suddenly slumping Pistons. "This was a momentum booster for us," Terry said. "We had to step it up on both ends of the court. Of late, we've been playing great defensively, helping each other out, being aggressive, trying to play more physical." In an Eastern Conference matchup of one of the worst teams and one of the best, the Hawks ambushed the Pistons, who have lost three in a row following a franchise record-tying 13-game winning streak. "We didn't look like a team that just won 13 straight games," said Pistons guard Richard Hamilton, who scored 11 points. "Our energy was there, at least before the game, but we never had a spark all night." Terry had the hot hand early, helping Atlanta grab the lead for good in the first quarter as he mixed it up with jumpers and drives. "The last time we played these guys, they got up in me defensively and made it tough on me," Terry said. "I just wanted to be aggressive early and it worked out tonight." "That was big," Hawks guard Stephen Jackson said. "Each game we have somebody come in and set the tone for us and he did a great job tonight." The combo guard acted primarily as a playmaker for the middle two periods before looking for his offense again in the final 12 minutes. "I drew so much attention where they were trapping me on the pick-and-roll, making sure I didn't get a look," Terry said. "My guys were knocking shots down left and right." Jackson scored 21 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim added 14 for the Hawks, who won on the road for the first time since December 30. Atlanta also won in Detroit for the first time since March 14, 1999, ending a nine-game skid at The Palace of Auburn Hills. "We had had so many close games and hadn't been able to win them," said Hawks coach Terry Stotts, whose club has won four of its last seven games. "You just keep working and getting knocked down, it's tough to get back up. But I think beating San Antonio really kick-started it. That was a close game, they came back and we fought and still won that one." Corliss Williamson scored a season-high 20 points off the bench for the Pistons, who made just 1-of-12 3-pointers and committed 16 turnovers as their nine-game home winning streak came to an end. "I felt that we played like a bunch of strangers," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "We had more turnovers than assists and our perimeter guys couldn't make a shot, and a lot of them were bad shots." The Pistons trailed, 72-61, entering the fourth quarter and got no closer than nine points. Jackson's jumper kept the lead at 82-71 with 6:12 left. Terry ran down a long rebound and threw a no-look pass to Jackson, who had leaked out for a layup. After a basket by Williamson, Terry sank a 3-pointer for an 89-75 bulge with 2:59 to go. Hawks center Theo Ratliff played Pistons All-Star center Ben Wallace to a virtual standstill. Ratliff had eight points, 13 rebounds and five blocks while Wallace had 14 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks. "Guys have been playing with more pride and approaching the game with more professionalism," Jackson said. "We're playing together and starting to play for each other and that's why the outcomes are different."
