GAME RECAP

Bo Outlaw had 23 points, a career-high 17 rebounds and the go-ahead jumper with 1.1 seconds to play as the Orlando Magic edged the Atlanta Hawks, 91-90.

Outlaw scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and his dunk with 1:45 remaining gave the Magic an 86-82 lead, but the Hawks fought back.

Steve Smith, who scored 18 points, sank two free throws to trim the deficit to one and Tyrone Corbin drained a 22-foot jumper to give the Hawks a 90-89 lead with 7.7 seconds left.

Mark Price took the ensuing inbounds pass but his jumper was blocked by Mookie Blaylock. Outlaw grabbed the loose ball in the lane, turned and hit an eight-footer over 7-2 Dikembe Mutombo to put Orlando back in front.

"I wanted Mark to hit the shot so I could go home. But it just happened that way," Outlaw said. "He (Price) looked at me under the rim, so I thought he was going to throw it to me, but he tried to take the shot. I just happened to be looking at him and it came to me. I did what anyone else would do -- just shot it."

"We thought we had a good defensive stop on that blocked shot," Smith explained. "Charles (Outlaw) was in the right place at the right time."

Blaylock got a good look at the basket on the final play, but his three-pointer was well off the mark as time expired.

Orlando won for just the third time in its last 11 home games and snapped a four-game losing streak against the Hawks.

"We struggled so hard and had so many games like this. We finally came out on top," Magic coach Chuck Daly said. "Maybe this will help turn it around a bit."

Blaylock had 15 points, nine assists and a season-high eight steals for Atlanta, which has lost seven of its last nine games and five of six on the road.

"We still have a lot of things to accommplish," Mutombo said. "We have to finish most of the game and do the things we were doing the first part of the season. We have lost the tempo and now we are trying to regain that."

This game was tied throughout the second half and went to the final period knotted at 69-69. The Magic scored the first seven points of the quarter and a three-pointer by Penny Hardaway gave the Magic a 76-69 edge. But Atlanta answered with a 7-0 spurt, which included four points by Christian Laettner and the tying three-pointer by Eldridge Recasner.

Outlaw hit a follow shot and a layup and Price added four points as Orlando used an 8-2 spurt to grab an 84-78 lead with 5:20 to go. Following Outlaw's dunk with 1:45 remaining, Blaylock hit a driving lay-in to pull the Hawks within 86-84.

"He (Outlaw) had a heck of a game," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We were doubling off him, he got a lot of opportunities. Of course, the biggest opportunity was when the ball was blocked right to him in the end and he made the shot."

Off a nice feed from Hardaway, Rony Seikaly converted a three-point play, but Atlanta scored the next six points to go on top. Steve Smith drained an 18-footer and two free throws and, after Horace Grant threw away an inbounds pass, Corbin temporarily gave the Hawks the lead.

"They played a hard game and Bo Outlaw played a big game for them," Corbin said. "He did all the right things. The effort was there, we just couldn't get it. He just made a big shot."

Laettner and Corbin had 14 points apiece and Mutombo pulled down 10 boards for the Hawks, who committed just nine turnovers but were outrebounded, 50-36.

Price had 12 points and five assists off the bench and Seikaly scored nine of his 12 points in the opening quarter. Seikaly had six points in a 12-2 run and his free throw with 3:02 left gave the Magic a 23-16 advantage.

Atlanta controlled the second period to retake the lead, outscoring Orlando 26-12 in the final nine minutes before halftime. Alan Henderson scored 11 of his 13 points in the second quarter, helping the Hawks to a 50-48 edge.

Hardaway continued to struggle with his shot since returning from a 26-game absence following knee surgery. He was just 3-of-11 from the field, finishing with nine points and two assists in 27 minutes off the bench. Hardaway is an atrocious 9-of-37 from the floor in three games since his return.

"He's been back only three games now and hopefully after the (All-Star) break, he can start every game, making it a little bit better," Price said.

Grant and Nick Anderson chipped in 11 points apiece for Orlando, which has won two of three after dropping a season-high seven straight games.
