Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Mookie Blaylock's 12-foot floater with 1.9 seconds to play capped a wild finish and gave the Atlanta Hawks a tense 103-102 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Sam Perkins, who spent the entire second half on the bench prior to being inserted as a substitute during a timeout, gave Indiana a 102-101 lead with nine seconds to play when he drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing after receiving a kick-out pass from Reggie Miller.

"Guys sunk in a little bit and I had room. It was a play to make a play basically," said Perkins. "It was a good game, it was a tight game with a lot of lead changes."

The Hawks called timeout to set up a play. Blaylock took the in-bounds pass and dribbled above the top of the key. He then drove past Miller and into the lane, where he put up the game-winning shot over Antonio Davis.

"Well, I got a good look, I got inside," Blaylock said. "It was a play for everybody to get a touch at it, it wasn't just for me. I had to get it up high, I'm just lucky I got a good look at it."

"We had three options off that situation, he came off the screen, got the ball and then penetrated, and that's what we like to see," said Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens. "He made it. The best thing is the bottom line, we won the game. I feel like we came together, so that was a great win for us."

Indiana called timeout to set up its final play. After a deflection, Jalen Rose passed to Rik Smits, whose 15-foot turnaround jumper from the right side fell well short.

There were 10 lead changes in the fourth quarter, seven in the final 3:21. Atlanta, which led by as many as 11 points in the third quarter, erased a six-point deficit in the final 6:58.

Steve Smith scored nine of his 25 points in the final six-plus minutes for the Hawks, who have handed the Pacers two of their eight losses this season. Atlanta posted an 85-79 victory at Indiana eight days ago.

"This was a very big win for us. They wanted to come in and win this after what we did up there," said Smith. "We're just trying to win ballgames, I don't think we look at this as a statement."

Miller finished with 26 points on 10-of-13 shooting but did not score in the fourth quarter. Rose and Dale Davis added 15 apiece for Indiana, which fell to 7-6 on the road.

"All we needed was one stop," said Miller. "Tonight, we couldn't come up with that one stop. We did get the break when Sam hit the 3, but we just couldn't get the stop. We've won games this way, it goes both ways."

The Pacers trailed 80-79 entering the fourth quarter, but Rose hit a nine-foot turnaround to trigger a 9-3 burst. Rose hit a pair of free throws with 9:41 to play to give Indiana an 88-83 lead. His driving lay-in with 6:59 remaining extended the lead to 92-86, but Smith quickly countered with a three-point play and 12-footer in a 32-second span to cut the deficit to 92-91.

A foul shot by Antonio Davis gave Indiana a 95-94 lead at the 3:34 mark and the teams then traded clutch shots down the stretch. Smith hit a 10-footer over Miller, but Smits countered with a hook shot.

Tyrone Corbin gave Atlanta a 98-97 lead with 1:52 left, but Mark Jackson was able to post Blaylock and hit a seven-foot hook shot with 43 seconds to go. Smith countered with a 20-footer over Rose 13 seconds later to give the Hawks a 100-99 lead.

Dikembe Mutombo knocked away the ball from Jackson and Corbin sank the second of two free throws with 16 seconds to play to make it 101-99, setting up Perkins' 3-pointer.

Miller had 11 points as Indiana held a 33-22 lead late in the first quarter. Mutombo and Alan Henderson combined for 10 points in a 13-0 run late in the second half to give the Hawks a 56-47 lead in the final minute. Atlanta led 70-59 midway through the third quarter, but Miller had nine points as Indiana closed the period on a 20-10 tear.

Mutombo finished with 19 points, 14 rebounds, four blocked shots and made 13-of-14 from the foul line for Atlanta, which shot 47 percent (38-of-81). Henderson netted 16, Blaylock 14 and rookie Roshown McLeod contributed 11 off the bench.

The Pacers shot 41 percent (38-of-92) but made 7-of-12 3-pointers. Jackson had eight assists as the Pacers committed just seven turnovers, setting a season low for the second straight game. They had eight in Monday's win over Washington.
