Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- In danger of seeing their home winning streak snapped, the Los Angeles Clippers got a big lift from an unlikely source. Chris Wilcox scored all nine of his points in the fourth quarter as the Clippers rallied from a nine-point deficit to win their sixth-straight home game, 111-104, over the hapless Atlanta Hawks. Since being activated from the injured list on January 24, Wilcox had appeared in just five of the Clippers' 15 games, playing more than 10 minutes only once. It appeared Wilcox would sit out another game after staying on the bench through the first three quarters as the Hawks took an 83-78 lead into the final period. "I was sitting on the bench the whole game," Wilcox said. "I was observing and watching the game and I saw what we were lacking. So when I got in the game I knew what I needed to do, play hard and pick up the intensity and level of play." But after Peja Drobnjak's 3-pointer gave Atlanta a 92-83 lead with nine minutes left, Wilcox entered the game and provided an immediate spark as Los Angeles went on a 20-3 run over the next 6:30. "When Chris came in there with about eight minutes left in the game he really brought a great spark to our team," said Elton Brand, who had 12 points and 13 rebounds. "He played and got some buckets and energized us." Rookie Lionel Chalmers made a jumper to start the burst and Wilcox scored six consecutive points in just over a minute to draw the Clippers within 92-91 with 6:11 to play. "Chris Wilcox came in and did a good job for them," Hawks guard Tyronn Lue said. "He gave them energy by dunking the basketball and getting their crowd into it." Quinton Ross made 1-of-2 free throws to even the score and Al Harrington and Bobby Simmons traded baskets to forge a 94-94 tie with 4:50 to go. "It was a great team effort," Simmons said. "Fortunately, everyone played hard and we needed that to win this game. We didn't give up." Harrington added a free throw before Wilcox gave Los Angeles the lead for good with a layup to make it 96-95 at the 3:34 mark. After a free throw by Wilcox, Simmons had a free throw and a basket around a 3-pointer by Chalmers to push the lead to 103-96 with 1:30 on the clock. Corey Maggette scored 25 points and Simmons contributed 24 for the Clippers, who shot 60 percent (9-of-15) in the fourth quarter. Lue scored 24 points and Harrington added 23 for Atlanta, which has lost 19 straight road games. "I have forgotten all about that," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said of the road losing streak. "That is not important to me. What is important to me is seeing these guys improve." The Hawks shot 60 percent (42-of-78) through three quarters, but Los Angeles switched to a zone defense for the final period and held Atlanta to 35 percent (7-of-20) in the final 12 minutes. "We just couldn't make any open shots from the perimeter," Lue said. "And their zone hurt us. When the shot clock was winding down we couldn't knock down the tough shots." "I felt at the end their zone defense hurt us," Woodson said. "We started to run out of juice toward the end of the fourth quarter and then the zone just added to that. They had problems against our man-to-man, since we had problems with their zone they stayed with it."
