Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Glenn Robinson scored 23 points apiece as the Atlanta Hawks held off a late charge by the slumping Detroit Pistons and posted a 94-92 victory in the opener of their home-and-home series. Abdur-Rahim, who was averaging 20.6 points per game, tallied at least 20 for only the second time in six contests and helped the Hawks beat the Pistons for just the fourth time in 16 meetings. Atlanta will try to match its season-high three-game winning streak when the team visits Detroit on Wednesday. However, the Hawks' two previous runs were followed by three-game losing skids. "For us, our big Achilles heel has been staying focused and staying consistent," Abdur-Rahim said. "We can't look at it like we passed a test. The test for us is to keep playing like this every night." Robinson, who grabbed a season-high 14 rebounds, collected 21 points in the opening three quarters as the Hawks opened a 76-65 cushion. "In the third quarter, they played off me a little bit and I got my game going," Robinson said. "JT (Jason Terry) got a couple of shots in. Then, Shareef finished his off." Richard Hamilton paced the Pistons with 25 points and Chucky Atkins contributed 14 off the bench, including a 3-pointer to spark a 13-4 run and help Detroit close its deficit to 84-82 with 6 1/2 minutes to play. Hamilton made his first free throw with two seconds remaining to pull the Pistons within two and intentionally missed the second attempt. He grabbed the rebound and hit the rim with the potential game-tying shot as Detroit dropped its third straight game. "We definitely had them under control early," Hamilton said. "We went out and did everything we could to win. We'll just have to go back to the drawing board. A lot of times we crash the boards too much." Hamilton converted a three-point play with 1:15 to go in the first as Detroit opened a 24-14 lead. Robinson's 16-foot jumper sparked Atlanta's 10-0 to start the second. Abdur-Rahim's six-foot jumper with 7:35 to play in the half gave the Hawks a 29-26 advantage. "It was really a hard-fought game from start to finish," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "Glenn kind of carried us through the third and of course Reef made big plays down the stretch. It was a really great win overall." The Pistons had a dismal second quarter. They hit just 4-of-19 from the field - all jumpers - as Atlanta outscored Detroit, 28-12. "I thought our downfall was in the second quarter when we really had some lapses defensively and some dry spells offensively," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "But the other three quarters, I thought we played well. The Pistons shot just 15-for-45 (33.3 percent) in the first half. Theo Ratliff recorded a season-high 13 points in the second straight game as Atlanta won its fourth straight home game and improved to 8-2 at Philips Arena. But Ratliff nearly gave the lead away down the stretch, getting whistled for goaltending twice in 29 seconds. But Atkins failed to convert a three-point play as the Hawks clung to a 92-91 lead with 90 seconds to go in the contest. "We need to find out what it is and turn this thing around," Pistons guard Jon Barry. "Our energy level was much better in the fourth. But we need to play that way for the full 48. We haven't played a full 48 in a long time. If we don't do that, we're not going to win."
