Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Dikembe Mutombo just missed a triple-double and Isaiah Rider scored 12 of his 30 points in a 41-point second quarter as the Atlanta Hawks snapped a four-game losing streak with a 108-90 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Mutombo finished with 16 points, 21 rebounds and nine blocks for his 18th double-double of the season. Guards Mookie Blaylock and Doc Rivers are the only players in Atlanta history to record triple-doubles.

"I think defensively, we were on the top of our game," Mutombo said. "We played very tough. We came out very strong after the first quarter and went from there. After all the losses we've been through, winning again was the most important thing right now."

Rider helped the Hawks turn an 11-point deficit into a 66-48 halftime lead. Atlanta, which won for only the second time in eight games, outscored the Cavaliers in the second quarter, 41-16.

"We had energy tonight and we have to play with energy," Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens said. "If you do that and defend, you really make things happen."

Atlanta guard Bimbo Coles broke his nose late in the fourth quarter after taking an accidental elbow from Cleveland's Bob Sura.

"I think Bobby's a little mad because (Virginia) Tech's going to beat Florida State in the (NCAA football) championship game," said Coles, who played collegiately at Virginia Tech.

Sura, who played at Florida State, had 17 points along with Shawn Kemp for the Cavaliers. Cleveland shot just 37 percent (33-of-89) and suffered its sixth straight loss.

Consecutive layups by rookie Andre Miller capped a 12-0 run and brought the Cavaliers within 88-85 with 6:39 left in the fourth quarter, but Rider's jumper from the top of the key halted Cleveland's momentum.

After Andrew DeClerq's layup made it 90-87, LaPhonso Ellis scored nine points to fuel a 16-0 run that gave the Hawks a 106-87 lead with one minute to play.

Jim Jackson had 19 points while Ellis finished with 17 for the Hawks, who shot 45 percent (41-of-92) from the field.

"The guy that gave us a huge lift was LaPhonso Ellis," Wilkens said. "He gave us some great energy. He dove for balls and he ran the fast break. Everybody worked hard. It was a team thing."

Cleveland jumped to a 6-0 lead on two foul shots by Lamond Murray and stretched its advantage to 28-17 on Cedric Henderson's free throw with 2:19 remaining in the first quarter.

But the Hawks closed within 32-25 after the opening period before erupting in the second quarter. They took their first lead at 35-34 on Rider's layup with 8:30 left in the half before Brevin Knights' 3-pointer gave Cleveland its last lead, 39-38, with 7:25 to play.

"We came out and played the way we wanted to play defensively," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said "Offensively in the first quarter, we were very active. Then in the second quarter for whatever reasons, we reverted back to non-aggressive play."

Jackson's 3-pointer capped a 15-0 spurt that gave Atlanta a 53-39 cushion with 4:19 left. After Knight hit a 13-footer for Cleveland, the Hawks scored the next eight points, extending to a 60-41 lead on Jackson's 21-footer with 2:21 to play.

"We started missing shots," Cleveland forward Mark Bryant said. "We didn't move the ball around. We got a couple of people in foul trouble and they blew the game open. We just have to keep playing hard. We have to play a whole 40 minutes of basketball, not two quarters. We can't play in spurts."

After making only 8-of-22 shots in the first quarter, the Hawks were 14-of-24 over the next 24 minutes.

"I think in the second quarter we created opportunities defensively, which got us out on the break," Jackson said. "It got us easy baskets and that makes it easier to go out and win."

Henderson scored 12 points and Miller added 11 for the Cavs, who trailed 84-71 entering the final period.

After Jason Terry's jumper made it 88-73 with 11:03 to play, Cleveland held the Hawks scoreless for nearly five minutes. The Cavs pulled within three with 6 1/2 minutes left but did not score again until Miller hit a 3-pointer with 30 seconds left.
