Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Glenn Robinson again enjoyed success against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks again locked up a win at the free-throw line. Glenn Robinson scored 16 of his 20 points in the first half and Jason Terry added nine of his 17 in the fourth quarter as the Atlanta Hawks recorded their second victory in six days against the Cleveland Cavaliers, 96-91. Robinson and Terry each converted two free throws as the Hawks combined to hit all 10 attempts from the line in the fourth quarter to hold off the Cavaliers and post their fourth win in five games overall. "We've been through so many tough games," Terry said. "We just kind of kept our head up, stayed confident and executed at the end." Atlanta posted a 102-101 overtime victory at Cleveland last Saturday in the first meeting between the teams. Robinson scored six of his 27 points in the extra session to lead the Hawks. "I know as a group we're playing better," Robinson said. "We're playing better defense. Now is the time." All-Star Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 21 points and Jumaine Jones chipped in 15 off the bench for the Cavaliers, who lost for the eighth time in nine games. "We missed a few free throws, including myself, and they made some plays, and we didn't," Ilgauskas said. "It's just one of these crazy games where nothing goes your way. "We're playing better, you can see the improvement. We're not getting blown out. You're not satisfied with losing, but at least we had a chance at the end." The Hawks made just over 78 percent from the line (25-of-32) against the Cavaliers after shooting at least 80 percent in each of their previous four games. Atlanta led by as many as 10 points in the third, but Jones contributed six points during Cleveland's 12-4 run early in the fourth. The swingman's jumper with 7:35 to play capped the burst and knotted the contest, 79-79. Terry missed the trip to Philadelphia on Wednesday with a bruised right hip but was well enough to answer Cleveland's charge. He nailed a 3-pointer, fed fellow guard Dion Glover for a 20-footer and then hit a jumper with just over five minutes to go, opening an 86-79 cushion for Atlanta. "He made big shots once we got the ball in half court," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "I like the ball in his hands. The pick-and-rolls we were running, he made big shots. They had to honor him on the pick-and-rolls, either as a shooter or a passer." Terry finished with seven assists. Cleveland rookie Smush Parker also registered seven assists. But the 21-year-old point guard displayed both his skill and inexperience down the stretch. Parker put home a driving layup, forced a turnover by Terry and set up Jones for a finger roll within 10 seconds, pulling Cleveland within 90-89 with 1:49 remaining. The Cavaliers still trailed by only one in the final minute and Parker was doing an excellent job of denying Terry the ball. But Jones inexcusably fouled Glover with one second left on the shot clock to bail out the Hawks. Glover made a pair from the line with 21.9 seconds to play and gave Atlanta a 94-91 edge. Parker leads the NBA with 5.81 turnovers per 48 minutes and, off a timeout, tried to force a pass to Ilgauskas in the key. But Hawks center Theo Ratliff was there to collect his third steal. "He's a young fellow, he's a rookie. He got a little flustered," Ratliff said. "He kind of lobbed it up there. He tried to make a soft pass. Yeah, he did make a soft pass." "The biggest thing for him is confidence," Cavaliers interim coach Keith Smart said of Parker. "He's active defensively. He made some big plays tonight to get us back in it. Since I've been here, these guys have played the way I wanted them to play, and that's with energy and passion." Robinson was fouled, made the ensuing free throws with 7.9 seconds to go and secured Atlanta's fifth victory in the last six meetings with Cleveland. Cleveland's scoring leader, Ricky Davis had 13 points, eight rebounds and four steals. But he committed eight of his nine turnovers in the first half.
