Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The start time was unusual. So was the third quarter. But Isaiah Rider's comments afterward were not.

The Indiana Pacers used a 40-10 third quarter to bury the Atlanta Hawks, 116-89, during a rare midweek matinee that brought out the worst in Isaiah Rider.

Taking the floor shortly after 2 p.m. EST and falling behind by 10 at halftime, the Pacers got 19 points from Reggie Miller in the third quarter, when they outscored Atlanta's second-half total of 39.

"It happened real quickly," Hawks forward Alan Henderson said. "I didn't even realize they were up that big. I looked up they were up 17. I thought it was an error on the scoreboard."

Rider, who guarded Miller during the game, remained on the floor for several minutes after the game, then laced into teammates in the locker room.

"These (blanks) don't care about winning or losing," he said. "They were smiling and laughing. (Blank) all these (blanks). I'd rather win, man. (Blank) this seventh in the league, sixth in the league scoring. I'd rather win. People are giggling and laughing. This is (crap). I want to win."

Miller, who scored 25 points, sank five 3-pointers, and Dale Davis added eight points in the period as Indiana shot 63 percent before rolling to its 12th win in 14 games.

The Hawks matched a franchise-record low for a third quarter with 10 points and lost for the eighth time in 10 tries. They shot just 24 percent (5-of-21) from the floor in the period and went 0-of-5 from 3-point range.

"The third quarter was one of the best quarters you could ever see in this league -- great defense, we were helping each other out," Pacers coach Larry Bird said.

Jimmy Jackson scored 19 points for Atlanta, which scheduled the early start time as an experiment during the holiday season and with schools closed for vacation.

Indiana may have felt the effects of the early tip as the Hawks used a 21-8 run to build a 48-36 lead with 1:45 to go in the first half.

"The first half it didn't look like we practiced in two months," Bird said. "We played selfish. We were taking quick shots. In the second half we played unselfish and we played hard on the defensive end. You don't see that very often. It was a strange deal."

Miller scored 11 of the Pacers' first 18 points in the third quarter, giving them the lead for good, 58-56, on a 3-pointer with 5:49 left in the period.

Indiana had a 15-0 run within the third-quarter outburst. Miller started and ended it with 3-pointers as the Pacers built a 67-56 advantage with 3:27 to go in the period.

Rider got Atlanta within single digits with a jumper, but Miller hit a 3-pointer to start a 9-0 spurt, which Mark Jackson capped with a layup for a 76-58 lead.

"I just got out there on the break," Miller said. "Isaiah was turning his head a lot, so I was trying to be active. Any time you run the break hard, Jalen (Rose) and Mark will find you."

Jackson had seven of his 14 assists during the quarter and finished with nine points and seven rebounds. Miller went 5-of-11 from 3-point range.

Meanwhile, the Hawks were going through the motions. They had just two field goals in a six-minute span of the third, when they were outscored 26-2.

"We came out in the second half and a bunch of turnovers," Rider said. "Reggie Miller hit 5 3-pointers. The game was over after that."

Rider scored 16 points for Atlanta, which shot 41 percent (35-of-85) from the floor and committed 21 turnovers. The Hawks held a 46-44 edge on the boards.

Davis finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds and Rose and Rik Smits had 18 points apiece for the red-hot Pacers, who shot 52 percent (47-of-91) overall and 40 percent (8-of-20) from 3-point range.

Indiana also avenged a 105-99 home loss to Atlanta on November 19.

"We considered this payback because they embarrassed us at the Fieldhouse," Miller said.
