Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- In his return, Al Harrington got a nice reception and the better of former teammate Ron Artest. But the Indiana Pacers got the win. Harrington's season-high 30 points were not enough for the Atlanta Hawks, who blew a 17-point lead and suffered a 93-86 loss to the Pacers. "I really wanted the win," Harrington said. "Coming back is something I've been looking forward to. I had a good game, but not good enough." "We have a lot of respect for Al, for what he's done and what he's capable of doing," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. Last season, Harrington established himself as one of the best reserves in the NBA, backing up All-Stars Artest and Jermaine O'Neal at both forward positions and averaging career highs of 13.3 points and 6.4 rebounds. But Harrington had spent six seasons on Indiana's bench and wanted to start. His request was granted as the Pacers sent him to the Hawks for swingman Stephen Jackson. "I'm very comfortable in this role," Harrington said. "It's something I've been looking forward to. The last two or three years, I've been in a position to take some of the big shots down the stretch. Now I have to take those shots for us to be successful." The 6-9 Harrington was the first Hawk introduced and received a warm ovation from the crowd at Conseco Fieldhouse. The fans weren't cheering for long as Harrington scored 16 points in the first half, helping Atlanta open a 35-18 lead at one point. The Pacers closed to 49-42 at halftime and tightened their defense in the second half. But Harrington kept scoring, working over Artest, the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year. His spinning jumper pulled the Hawks into a 76-76 tie with 5:05 to go. "Al talks trash all the time," Artest said. "He would even talk trash in practice. Tonight it was, 'I can't be stopped' and 'They shouldn't have traded me.' I guess he took it out on me by scoring 30. He's a tough guy and I think he could be an All-Star. I think he was an All-Star last year. I just got more time and more shots." The teams were still tied when Jamaal Tinsley drilled a 3-pointer to start a decisive 9-0 spurt. Austin Croshere - whose minutes have increased with Harrington's departure - had a dunk before baskets by O'Neal and Artest made it 87-78 with 2:12 left. Harrington made 12-of-19 shots and 6-of-10 free throws, adding six rebounds and three steals. But he did not get much help. "This is a team game and we're going to get better," Harrington said. "It was encouraging to see us play the way we did. The best way to get back at a team is to get a win. But they're a great team and I'm not surprised that they pulled it out." "Al is capable of being a top-level player and he showed that tonight," Carlisle said. "Ron Artest played great defense on him most of the night and he hit some tough shots. ... We survived it." O'Neal had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Artest scored 24 points and Croshere added 13 and 13 for the Pacers, who have won 10 straight home meetings with the Hawks. "Al had a good game," Croshere said. "It was the best-case scenario - Al had a good game and we won. We're happy for him. We're happy for him as long as we win." Antoine Walker scored 16 points but made just 7-of-21 shots for the Hawks, who seemed to lose steam down the stretch. They hit 16 of their first 21 shots but were just 17-of-57 from the field thereafter. "We have one of the toughest schedules in terms of back to backs," Atlanta coach Mike Woodson said. "Our guys have to get used to that. We were in a position to win tonight, but we ran out of gas in the third and fourth quarters." In the third quarter, Harrington scored eight points, Walker had five and the rest of the Hawks were shut out as their lead disappeared. Jackson scored nine points, including a 3-pointer that pulled Indiana into a 74-74 tie with 6:03 to play.
