Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- With the game on the line, the rim was unkind to Grant Hill and the Orlando Magic. Hill's potential game-winning jumper at the buzzer hit the rim twice and bounced away as the Magic wasted a stirring late comeback and fell to the lowly Atlanta Hawks, 80-79. Antoine Walker, who had made just three of his first 12 shots, swished a fadeaway 16-footer over star rookie and Atlanta native Dwight Howard with 2.3 seconds left that gave the Hawks a one-point lead. "The play was originally for a post-up for Al (Harrington) against Grant Hill, because he was having success finding people," said Walker, whose team snapped a four-game losing streak. "I just had the ball in my hands and I didn't want to hold it. I just wanted to get a shot up. I was due to make one anyway, I had been struggling all night." "He hit a tough shot," Howard said. "I just tried to pressure him and keep him away from the basket and try to force him to take a tough shot." Following a timeout, the Magic inbounded the ball to Hill, who took one dribble toward the left baseline and released a shot over Hawks swingman Boris Diaw's outstretched arm. The ball hit the front of the rim, bounced off the backboard and hit the rim again before harmlessly falling away. "It felt good (leaving my hand)," Hill said. "I had one bounce my way in the first half. I tried to get it over (Diaw). It was a little short. I got two bounces. It wasn't meant to be." "I knew he was going to shoot it," Diaw said. "I was just trying to figure out which way he was going to turn. You just have to look if the ball goes in and hope that it's not." The Magic appeared headed toward a dismal loss to an 8-34 team after falling behind, 76-64, on a layup by Hawks guard Tony Delk with 4:55 remaining. But Orlando scored 13 straight points, taking a 77-76 lead with 33 seconds remaining on a follow dunk by Howard off a missed jumper by Steve Francis. Harrington, who collected 16 points and a career-high nine assists, reclaimed the lead for Atlanta with a spinning, lefthanded banker past Hill with 15 seconds left before Francis drove the lane for a layup with 11 seconds to play to give Orlando a 79-78 edge. It looked like it was going to be another heartbreaking loss for Atlanta, which blew a seven-point lead in Saturday's 84-83 loss to Memphis after guard Tyronn Lue's potential game-winning shot bounced off the rim as time expired. But Walker made sure that history would not repeat itself. "I wasn't going to let the same thing happen to us that happened Saturday night without getting a decent shot up," Walker said. "It was a good win for us. We need to do more of that." "We were in the same position the other night," Hawks coach Mike Woodson added. "I think the guys were looking over their shoulder and thinking about what happened in Memphis. But luck was on our side tonight, along with some good defense." Delk contributed 17 points off the bench before fouling out with 1:08 remaining to pace the Hawks, who lost high-flying rookie forward Josh Smith to a sprained right ankle in the second quarter. Smith did not play in the second half. Francis scored 24 points but made just 7-of-19 shots for Orlando, which connected on just 38 percent (30-of-79). Howard produced 16 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks in his second game back in his home city. He scored a season-high 24 points in a 117-99 triumph here November 26.
