Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Nick Anderson scored nine of his 22 points during a fourth-quarter run and hit a 3-pointer during a 7-0 burst to open overtime as the Orlando Magic rallied to hand the Atlanta Hawks their first home loss, 99-84.

"We made a few changes in the second half," said Anderson, who was 4-of-8 from beyond the arc. "We got more aggressive. They were good changes, the little things that you have to do win ballgames, and everyone was stepping up."

The Hawks, who had won their previous three home games by an average of 11.3 points, held a 73-65 lead after three quarters. Anderson capped a 13-6 spurt with a three-pointer that pulled the Magic within 79-78 with 5:18 remaining in regulation.

Orlando tied the contest at 85-85 on a pair of free throws by Horace Grant with less than a minute to play.

Steve Smith, who led the Hawks with 28 points, drained a turnaround jump shot that gave the Hawks an 87-85 lead with 28 seconds to play. But Grant answered with a jumper from the top of the key that pulled Orlando even at 87-87 with 14 seconds to go, forcing the first overtime of the season for both teams.

"There were a couple of shots where I didn't really have my feet set and I guess they saw something I didn't see," said Grant, who finished with 11 points. "(The coaches) said I was open and I felt that I was open and saw the clock was running down. It was sort of a do-or-die situation and fortunately for us, it went in."

"I don't draw any plays for him," Orlando coach Chuck Daly added. "I wish I were good enough, but I'm not. We don't care if you miss. You've got a wide-open shot -- take it."

The Magic quickly took control as Darrell Armstrong, who had 15 points and 10 assists, opened with a layup. Anderson drilled his third 3-pointer on the ensuing possession and Penny Hardaway capped the run with a layup with 3:40 to go that gave the Magic a 94-87 bulge.

"We missed a couple of shots and they got a couple of fast breaks and layups," said Smith. "They played a great game in the second half. We had a lead, but we didn't sustain it and they played well. They just kept staying in there and they finally got their spurt and when they had their spurt, we didn't get ours back."

Hardaway scored 15 points for Orlando, which has won six of its last seven games. He also had a key strip of Smith as the final seconds ran off the clock in regulation.

"They tried to run a pick-and-roll and it didn't work," Hardaway said. "He lost the ball so I leaned over a little bit and stepped around and had a chance to put my hand right in the alley of where he had to bring the ball (to shoot) and I hit the ball."

LaPhonso Ellis scored 18 and Mookie Blaylock added 16 for the Hawks, who had won three of their last four games. The contest marked the first time this season Atlanta has failed to register 100 points at home.

"I'm pretty (ticked) off," said Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens. "Poor execution, the clock runs down and you try to do it yourself. We're not that kind of team. We have to understand our offense. We have to execute. I mean, defensively we stop people but we let them get second and third shots and you can't do that."

Orlando, which shot 51 percent (42-of-83) from the field, held a 53-49 lead at the half. Atlanta came out blazing in the third quarter as Smith nailed consecutive 3-pointers and Blaylock made a layup to cap a 19-6 run that gave the Hawks a 68-59 lead with less than five minutes remaining.

Bo Outlaw scored eight points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Magic and teamed with Isaac Austin to hold Dikembe Mutombo to just seven points on 1-of-4 shooting in 41 minutes.

Mutombo did manage to collect eight rebounds for the Hawks, who held a 39-36 advantage on the boards, including a 15-8 edge on the offensive glass. The Hawks were just 13-of-24 from the line, drawing more criticism from Wilkens.

"We made a lot of mistakes out there tonight," added Wilkens. "We can't play that way. The miscues, defensive errors and we shot something like 13-of-24 from the foul line. We've got to come out with a little bit more fire."
