Well-rested Hawks swoop in on Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- As Al Horford saw it, Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson gave the team a huge break with days off on Christmas Eve and Christmas.

On Saturday, Horford more than returned the favor.

Legs fresh, mind clear and body rested, Horford played a complete, dominant game on Saturday, finishing with a game-high 25 points and 19 rebounds as the Hawks finished a four-game road stretch with a more-dominant-than-the-score-looked 110-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse.

"I think that was a key," Horford said of the holiday rest. "It was a mental break for us that I think was huge."

As did the rest of the Hawks (21-8), who after one of their most one-sided losses of the season on Wednesday -- 124-104 at Denver -- controlled Saturday's game early, taking a 17-point lead in the first quarter, then never allowing Indiana (9-19) to regain control.

"I think it [the break] paid off," said Hawks three-time All-Star guard Joe Johnson, who scored 10 of his 24 points in the third quarter as Atlanta pushed an 11-point lead to 19. "We were very active tonight."

Atlanta took a 31-14 lead with 2:03 remaining in the first quarter, and while Indiana cut the lead to four with a 15-2 run, Atlanta pushed the lead to 47-33 with 3:30 remaining in the half and the Pacers never trimmed the lead below eight again.

"We got ourselves in a hole we never got out of," Pacers coach Jim O'Brien said.

The Hawks, while outrebounded 47-37, had 11 blocked shots to six for Indiana, and also had 12 steals to four for Indiana. They had five steals in a first-quarter in which they made three of their five 3-point field goals.

"I thought the day off really rejuvenated us," Woodson said. "We had fresh legs. I thought we came out and established our game right off. We had a lot of juice going. I thought it carried over throughout the game."

Horford had seven of his rebounds by the end of the first quarter, and also finished with five blocked shots while playing a game-high 42:50.

"Al had a monster game," Woodson said. "It's nice to have him play like that."

The victory also enabled the Hawks to finish a four-game road stretch 2-2 with victories at Indiana and Minnesota and losses at Denver and Chicago. That's not ideal, Woodson said, but it kept the Hawks three games over .500 on the road, an area of focus this season.

"We're trying to stay at the top and push Orlando -- who has dominated our division the last couple of years -- for the title," Woodson said. "The way to do that is you have to win on the road. There were a couple of games on the road we let slip away. We can't go back and get them, but we can surely push ahead and try to make sure that doesn't happen again.

"Not saying we're an elite team, but we're a team I know that if we come ready to play and committed for 48 minutes we can beat anybody in this league."

The Hawks, who failed to shoot more than 50 percent in the first three games of the current four-game road stretch, shot 40 of 79 Saturday with solid shooting performances from not only Horford (11 of 14) and Johnson (8 of 14), but forward Josh Smith, who shot nine of 14 for 22 points. Smith also had five blocked shots, while Jamal Crawford came off the bench to lead an effort from the reserves that Woodson said improved in the second half.

Rookie forward Tyler Hansbrough continued to be a bright spot in a difficult stretch for the Pacers, who have lost 16 of 20 games following an early-season five-game winning streak. Hansbrough, who shot 7 of 20, scored 19 points and had 11 rebounds. Reserve point guard T.J. Ford had 10 points and nine assists and forward Troy Murphy had 19 points and 12 rebounds for his third consecutive double-double.

"You can't get down on a good team like Atlanta and expect to dig out," Murphy said."They're too strong and too good of a basketball team."

While point guard Luther Head also scored 19 points off the bench, swingman Mike Dunleavy -- in his 15th game back after missing the first 13 with a knee issue -- scored just two points in 24 minutes and was held scoreless until a minute remained.

"Clearly, his legs aren't in the type of shape they need to be," O'Brien said of Dunleavy. "It's a dilemma. I have to talk to our medical staff and get their impressions."
