Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- With their self-proclaimed go-to guy suspended, the Atlanta Hawks snapped a four-game losing streak by rallying for a 103-98 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

Atlanta played without leading scorer Isaiah Rider, who was suspended by the team for tonight's game after missing practice on Monday afternoon.

"I'm not making statements," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "I think the message is we're a pretty good team. If you want to be a part of us, great."

Rider recently said he needs the ball for the team to win, something the Hawks did just once in their first seven games. They dropped all four on a recent western road trip.

"The challenge was built when we lost all the games on the road," center Dikembe Mutombo said. "We went to Portland and were embarrassed. We went to L.A. and were down by 30. Guys came out today with intensity."

Atlanta trailed by as many as eight points in the third quarter and were even with 10 1/2 minutes left, but Roshown McLeod put the Hawks ahead for good, 83-81, on a jumper with 9:42 left.

Charlotte drew within four points on nine different occasions thereafter but got no closer, falling to 0-4 on the road.

"We've been giving up a lot of points on the road," Hornets guard David Wesley observed. "It's just the whole game -- more intensity, more enthusiasm, something. We need to come with something better than what we're doing."

Rookie Jason Terry scored a career-high 22 points off the bench and Mutombo totaled 19 points and 17 rebounds for Atlanta, which has won the last seven games in the series.

"We had guys come off the bench and beat us that shouldn't," Wesley said. "McLeod, Terry to name a few."

Anthony Mason contributed 20 points and 16 rebounds for the Hornets, who have not defeated the Hawks since February 22, 1997.

Rookie Baron Davis drew Charlotte even for the last time, making it 81-81 with a layup. But McLeod hit a 17-footer to spark a 10-4 run, which included four points by Terry.

The Hawks controlled the boards during the key spurt and finished with a 49-39 advantage off the glass. Alan Henderson complemented Mutumbo with 12 rebounds and Lorenzen Wright had seven in 20 minutes.

"Jason came off the bench, pushed the ball and really got us going," Wilkens said. "Jimmy Jackson gave us a great game, Roshown McLeod got back into his rhythm again, and that was big. I thought Dikembe was much more effective tonight than he has been."

Charlotte led 74-66 with 6:15 left in the third quarter before a 15-5 run gave Atlanta an 81-79 edge. Jackson scored five of his 20 points during the spurt, capping it with a 3-pointer.

"Once we got our run at 77-70, we turned the ball over like a couple of times that led to baskets and then they're right back in," Hornets coach Paul Silas said.

Jackson, acquired with Rider from Portland for All-Star Steve Smith, shot just 8-of-24 from the floor but his teammates were unfazed by Rider's absence, hitting 52 percent of their shots (32-of-62).

"I think we try and get used to it," Mutombo said of the distraction created by Rider. "It's going to be a long season for us. I didn't bring Isaiah here. They brought him here."

McLeod, in his second season out of Duke, scored 14 of his 22 points in the second quarter. He played 44 minutes off the bench.

"I think adversity builds charachter," McLeod said. "Everybody just worked together, despite all the things going on. In order for us to be a team, we need more than one or two people."

Eddie Jones scored 20 points for the Hornets, who built their 74-66 advantage with a 21-9 run to start the second half. Jones had six points in the burst as did Elden Campbell, who finished with 12 and eight rebounds.

Bobby Phills scored 17 points, Derrick Coleman 12 and Wesley finished with 11 for Charlotte, which shot 45 percent (38-of-84) from the floor.

"We're struggling. We're looking for a way to win," Phills said. "Both teams needed to win tonight, and they persevered a lot better."
