GAME RECAP

Keith Van Horn scored 22 points and Kerry Kittles added 18 as the New Jersey Nets used a key run early in the fourth quarter and pulled away for a crucial 105-90 victory over the shorthanded Atlanta Hawks.

Chris Gatling came off the bench to record 15 points and a season-high 14 rebounds for New Jersey, which moved one-half game ahead of the Orlando Magic for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Eldridge Recasner scored 19 points and Mookie Blaylock added 18 for the Hawks, who played without injured starting guard Steve Smith and reserve forward Christian Laettner and saw their lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers for fifth in the East shrink to 1 1/2 games.

Atlanta tied the score, 72-72, when former Net Blaylock drove for a layup 53 seconds into the fourth quarter. Brian Evans answered with a jumper to give the Nets the lead for good and ignite a 14-1 burst.

After the Hawks were called for their second illegal defense, Sam Cassell's free throw made it 75-72 with 9:35 to play. Blaylock answered with one foul shot 10 seconds later, but that was Atlanta's only point until the 4:29 mark.

Gatling converted two free throws to stretch New Jersey's lead to 77-73 with 9:08 remaining. Kittles converted two three-point plays to push the advantage to 83-73 with 7:52 left. Cassell hit an off-balance jumper in the lane to make it 85-73 and hit one free throw to cap the burst with 5:25 to go.
