Recap

Hawks win in Houston for the first time since 1999


By Michael Murphy, for NBA.com

HOUSTON -- (NBA.com exclusive) -- Finally.

The Atlanta Hawks, who hadn't won in Houston in this millennium, finally cleared that hurdle Monday night with a 102-95 victory over the struggling Rockets before 14,998 at Toyota Center.

To get a clear understanding of just how long it's been since the Hawks won at Houston, which was way back on Feb. 25, 1999, consider that back then Lenny Wilkens was their coach, Tracy McGrady was in Toronto and Yao Ming was still dreaming of the NBA while headlining for the Shanghai Sharks.

And back then current Atlanta coach Mike Woodson still had his eyebrows.

Umm, what?

Woodson wouldn't explain why, but he showed up for Monday's game against the Rockets -- where he, a Houstonian in the offseason, had yet to win -- sans eyebrows, which he explained away as an accidental slip at the barbershop. If it was a deliberate act to get his team loose before an important game, then his eyebrow mishap certainly worked.

"Before the game he got some Velcro that looked like eyebrows, and he came to the (pre-game) meeting like that," said Josh Smith. "Everybody started laughing. He claimed his barber did it on accident.

"It was hard to be serious after that. It was really funny."

Anything to break that long, dry spell in Houston.

"They got me doing all kinds of crazy stuff," said Woodson, laughing. "There's no story. It's just a win. That's all it is, and we'll take it. ... This is the first win I've had as a head coach in Houston. This (Houston) is like home for me. I spend a lot of time here, and I haven't had the success here on this basketball floor for some reason.

"But we finally did it this year, which is nice."

It was the Hawks' eighth win in their last 10 games, while the Rockets suffered their second straight loss to start their much-anticipated six-game homestand.

"We just have to get back at it," said Houston coach Rick Adelman. "I told them that they're going to have tough times over the course of the season, and we're kind of running into that right now. We've got to find a way to work our way through it."

Just like Saturday's loss to the Bulls, the Hawks presented the kind of length, quickness and at-the-rim bounce (seven blocked shots) that completely stifled Houston's offense. The Rockets simply could not get over the top of Atlanta's athletes for clear looks, much less make shots.

That was reflected in the Rockets' shooting numbers from their primary scorers -- Aaron Brooks, who was kept out of the lane for much of the night, shot 6-of-20 for his 15 points. Carl Landry, battling Josh Smith, Al Horford, Marvin Williams and Joe Smith inside, was 4-of-12 for 15 points. And Trevor Ariza was 4-of-11 before sitting out the final 15 minutes, his seventh straight game of sub-.500 shooting.

The Rockets wound up shooting only 39.8 percent (33 of 83) and hit only five of their 21 3-point attempts (23.8 percent).

"We really wanted to force (Brooks) to drive and shoot over me and Al," said Josh Smith, who had a brilliant game, finishing with 22 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks and four steals. "I think Joe Smith did a great job of coming over and helping out, too. He's been doing that all year long. Whenever we're able to come together and play defense together like that and share the ball, then we're a tough team to beat."

The Rockets figured that the best way to beat the Hawks would be to limit their transition opportunities, which they accomplished, holding Atlanta to 10 fast-break points.

The problem was that they couldn't figure out a way to stop the Hawks in their halfcourt sets. If it wasn't Joe Johnson sniping away with off-the-dribble jumpers to finish with 20 points, then it was Josh Smith killing the Rockets inside. And Jamal Crawford came off the bench to provide even more punch, scoring 17 points in 26 minutes.

"When the ball moves around the horn like the way it did tonight, where guys are getting easy shots, easy dunks and layups, then it creates another level for our defense as well," Johnson said. "I think we definitely took it to a different level tonight.

"This is a team that we've struggled with for some time, so for us to come into their house and get a win is big."

That win didn't seem likely until the Hawks ramped up the intensity in the second quarter. Reduced to one-on-one play early in the game, which was perfectly illustrated by the fact that they finished the opening period with zero assists, the Hawks watched the Rockets zoom to a 41-34 lead midway through the second quarter.

But the Hawks then kicked it into gear, assembling a 24-3 run that bridged the second and third periods. The run turned that seven-point deficit into a 58-44 lead just over a minute into the second half, and the Rockets never rebounded.

"We got out and got some stops," said Crawford of the Hawks' run. "We're at our best when we get out and run. (Mike) Bibby was really great at setting guys up for easy baskets. We were able to really push the tempo and able to get a lead going into halftime."

The Hawks next play at San Antonio on Wednesday, looking to improve on their 11-9 record on the road.

"We need these kinds of contributions from everybody if we want to be successful out here on the road," Woodson said. "It's not easy winning on the road... We have to figure out how to win on the road. We're playing over-.500 basketball on the road, and good teams must do that. Last year it was tough on the road for our ballclub (going 16-25).

"That's where we've got to grow up as a basketball team. I figure we're pretty good at home in front of our fans at Phillips Arena, but we have to figure out the road, and I thought tonight was a great test for our team."
