Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Jason Terry lost his spot in the starting lineup but was on the court when it counted.

Terry pulled up in the lane over Damon Stoudamire for an awkward jumper with 2.6 seconds left that gave the Atlanta Hawks their first victory of the season, 99-97 over the puzzling Portland Trail Blazers.

With 8.6 seconds left and the score tied 97-97, Terry took the inbounds pass at midcourt. He advanced the ball against the smaller Stoudamire, then accelerated past him as he came down the right side of the key.

He pulled up seven feet from the hoop, and as Stoudamire went sailing past him lofted a soft jumper that put the Hawks up by two.

"I thought since we executed the pick-and-roll so well he (Stoudamire) thought that was coming," said Terry, who finished with 11 points and six assists. "He still played good defense. It's just a tremendous confidence boost. For us to have won it in overtime would not have been right."

"I did think the pick-and-roll was coming," the Blazers guard admitted. "It kind of caught me by surprise but he still hit a clutch shot. That wasn't what lost the game. You can't ever bail out a desperate team and we bailed them out. There were three different games in one, we controlled two of them. We just can't bail them out like that."

The Trail Blazers, who led throughout the first half when they outrebounded the Hawks 22-11, had a chance to tie. Former Hawk Steve Smith got an open look at a 3-pointer but threw up an airball.

Terry was almost the goat. With Atlanta leading 97-94 with 16 seconds left, the 6-2 second-year guard found himself matched up with 6-11 Rasheed Wallace at the top of the key. Wallace went up for the jumper and Terry got a good look at the big man's armpits as he launched the tying 3-pointer.

Atlanta led heading into the fourth quarter for the first time this season but could not build on it and still needed Terry's heroics and Smith's miss to hold on.

"It's the NBA," Blazers forward Dale Davis said. "Just because their team is 0-7 doesn't mean anything. They're all professional players. You know they weren't going to go 0-82. You just don't want to be the first one."

The Hawks led 78-73 before the Blazers ran off six consecutive points and it was nip and tuck thereafter.

Wallace scored seven of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and Bonzi Wells had eight of his 12 in the final 12 minutes. But the rest of the Blazers showed signs of fatigue from playing their second road game in two nights.

"It wasn't them," Hawks forward Lorenzen Wright said. "Everybody has back-to-backs. I'm not going to take anything away from us."

Wright scored 20 points, Jimmy Jackson added 14 and Alan Henderson 12 for the Hawks, who had lost their first seven games, their worst start since moving from St. Louis in 1968.

Dikembe Mutombo, playing his third game since coming back from a mild case of malaria, added 11 rebounds and six points.

"We've got evrybody back from injury," Wright said. "We've got to compete every night. We can't loaf. We're not that great of a team."

The Blazers led 32-22 on a 17-footer by Stacy Augmon with 9:53 left in the first half but the Hawks' second unit fought back.

Rookie DerMarr Johnson hit a 3-pointer and Wright hit a free throw and scored the layup that capped a 10-2 run, cutting the deficit to 34-32 with 7:39 to go.

The Hawks hung around behind rookie Hanno Mottola, who had nine points in the quarter, and still were within a basket when Terry scored a driving layup to make it 47-45 with 2:11 left in the half.

But Wallace came back into the game with 3:15 left in the half and teamed with Stoudamire and Dale Davis to spark a 10-4 run the rest of the half.

Wallace had a pair of steals and scored three points, Davis scored five and Stoudamire had a layup and an assist as the Blazers took a 57-49 advantage into the locker room.

The Hawks made short work of the lead at the outset of the third quarter, coming out with a 9-1 run capped by Jackson's 3-pointer that tied the score, 58-58, with 9:40 left.

A nine-foot hook by Arvydas Sabonis put Portland up 69-68 with 3:17 left but Matt Maloney hit a jumper and a 3-pointer as the Hawks closed the quarter on a 7-2 run and took a 75-71 lead into the fourth.

"There were no excuses," Stoudamire said. "Good teams win these games, good teams find a way to pull these games out. We were up by 10 or 12 points and we didn't finish our business."

The Trail Blazers activated Sabonis before the game and he scored 12 points in 13 minutes. Sabonis had missed the first eight games recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery.

"He played well," Davis said. "He hit some key shots for us. He plays good defense, he's a big-time player."
