Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 26 points and Jason Terry added 18 as the Atlanta Hawks matched their season-high winning streak at three games by holding off the Golden State Warriors, 100-94.

Entering the fourth quarter, Abdur-Rahim had 21 points and the Hawks held a 76-53 lead. Atlanta shot 46 percent (36-of-69) through the first 36 minutes, while Golden State struggled to 30.5 percent shooting (18-of-59).

"It's a good win," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "We played solid both offensively and defensively. Then in the fourth quarter during the mad scramble, we didn't play that good. We have to reinforce what we did for 2 1/2 quarters and learn from what we did wrong during the fourth."

"We can't come out and not play with the same intensity that we did against the (New Jersey) Nets and (Los Angeles) Lakers," Abdur-Rahim said. "We just let up and we have to finish the game with the same intensity that we started with."

In the fourth quarter, the Warriors kept chipping away at the deficit. Atlanta shot 14 percent (3-of-21) in the final period, while Golden State improved to 55 percent (11-of-20).

"This was the first time that we have had a big lead," Terry said. "So it was definitely a learning experience for us. Every time you step on an NBA court, it's a chance to learn and grow. We came out early and jumped on them. But we got lackadaisical and let them back."

Led by rookies Jason Richardson and Gilbert Arenas, the Warriors scored a season-high 41 points in the fourth quarter. Richardson had 14 of his 20 points in the period and Arenas seven of his season-high 12.

"I like the energy and the aggressiveness at the end of the game, but it was a little too late," Golden State coach Brian Winters said. "You can't dig yourself that big of a hole. You can't dig yourself 20-point holes and expect to try to climb out of them. You can't do it. But I am happy with the effort."

"We had our backs against the wall," Warriors forward Antawn Jamison said. "Coach got five guys out there who wanted to play, wanted to make a difference and who believe that they can come back and we made a game of it."

A three-point play by Erick Dampier pulled Golden State within 91-82 with 2:18 remaining. Richardson drew a charge, then sank two free throws to make it a seven-point game with 1:49 to go.

Golden State closed to 94-88 with 28 seconds left, but DerMarr Johnson took Toni Kukoc's inbounds pass and went in for an easy dunk.

Jamison scored 16 points for Golden State, which lost for the 17th time in its last 20 games.

Atlanta took control of the game with a 17-8 run over the final 5:45 of the first half.

With the Hawks holding a 31-26 lead, Terry started the spurt with a 3-pointer from the left corner. Ira Newble gave Atlanta its first double-digit lead by converting Dampier's turnover into an easy layup with 5:20 left.

Nazr Mohammed hit a 14-foot jumper from the left side that pushed the lead to 38-26 with 4:32 to go.

Jamison cut the deficit back to 10 with a jumper from the left corner 14 seconds later, but Terry and Hanno Mottola scored nine of Atlanta's next 11 points, opening a 49-34 halftime lead.

The Hawks dominated the third quarter, outscoring Golden State 25-14 while increasing the lead to over 20 points.

A hook shot by Mohammed gave Atlanta its first 20-point lead, 62-41, with 7:42 remaining in the third period.

Golden State missed its next seven shots before a jumper by Danny Fortson and a 3-pointer by Richardson reduced the deficit to 66-49 with 3:15 to go.

After rookie Troy Murphy missed a jumper and Bob Sura misfired on a 3-pointer, dunks by Abdur-Rahim and Alan Henderson gave the Hawks their largest lead, 76-49, with 50 seconds to go.
