Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Rookie Jason Terry had 15 points and a career-high 12 assists as the Atlanta Hawks recovered in the fourth quarter for a 91-86 victory over the struggling Vancouver Grizzlies, who dropped their eighth straight game.

The Hawks scored the first eight points of the game and led by as many as 13 points early in the third quarter but were unable to sustain their effort, allowing the Grizzlies to take their first lead midway through the fourth quarter.

Trailing 84-83 with 4:42 remaining, the Hawks took the lead for good when LaPhonso Ellis converted a layup. Terry added another layup to put the Hawks on top 87-84 with three minutes remaining.

The Grizzlies drew within a point on two free throws by Othella Harrington at the 2:36 mark but were shut out the rest of the way, missing numerous opportunities to tie or take the lead.

Alan Henderson sank two free throws and Terry and Ellis added two more in the final minute to account for the final margin.

"I wanted to play a little better than I did tonight but the victory is all I want," Terry said. "Your confidence starts to build when your teammates make some shots. Whoever we play, we just need to win ballgames now. We're hungry for wins. We just have to compete every night."

"I'm trying to spend a lot of time with (Jason)," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "I think he has the tools to become a really good point guard. I'm really pushing him."

Mike Bibby scored 20 points for the Grizzlies, who completed an 0-4, Eastern Conference road trip with their seventh straight road loss. Vancouver's eight-game slide is its longest since an 11-game skid from November 16-December 6. The Grizzlies are 0-5 all-time in Atlanta.

After jumping out to a 22-16 lead, Atlanta put on a shooting clinic, nailing 78 percent (14-of-18) of its shots in the second quarter to take a 50-39 lead into halftime.

Henderson, who collected 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, had 14 in an opening half which saw the Hawks shoot 60 percent (25-of-42), compared to 39 percent (16-of-41) for Vancouver.

"Alan's confidence is coming back," Wilkens said. "He kind of got down on himself recently. We went down to him early and he produced."

After a lethargic first half, the Grizzlies hi 70 percent (14-of-20) of their shots to draw within 73-70 entering the final period. Vancouver trailed 56-43 with 10 minutes left but a 14-4 run cut the deficit to 60-57 midway through the quarter.

Isaiah Rider, who was recently benched, continued his disinterested play, attempting only two shots for two points in 15 minutes.

"I'm not even worried about it," Rider said. "I've solidified myself. I thought it was coming from (general manager) Pete Backcock but its coming from Lenny. Either he or I won't be here next year.

"There are 27 teams in the league -- that's how I have to look at it right now. If they play me, they play me. Either way, it's no big deal. I'm going to ride it on out. Best of luck to Lenny, he's got a lot of pressure, too."

Jimmy Jackson broke out of his recent shooting slump to score 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting and Ellis had 15 off the bench for the Hawks, who shot 53 percent (39-of-73) and held a 37-30 rebounding edge.

"Tonight, I was back to shooting the ball. ... Before, I was aiming," Jackson said. "I wasn't putting the arc on it."

The Hawks scored more than 83 points for the first time in nine games and had a player score at least 20 for the first time since Jackson had 22 in a 102-83 loss to Washington on March 1.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Michael Dickerson suffered through a 6-of-17 shooting performance and finished with 12 points. Vancouver shot 49 percent (37-of-76) but hit only 11-of-17 free throws.

"I thought the game was lost in the first half," Vancouver coach Lionel Hollins said. "We got down and didn't compete on defense early. In the second half we competed, got back in the game and had the lead. Then, we made about three crucial turnovers and misseed three or four shots that we normally make. That was all she wrote."

"We could have won, but they played harder toinght and came out with a victory," Dickerson said. "We've struggled defensively. Shareef and I have had some tough matchups at the two and three spots. I take a lot of responsiblility for that. You just have to buckle down and get some defensive stops."
