Hawks' first-half blitz too much for Pistons to overcome


By Jon Cooper, for NBA.com

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- It sounds cliché to hear guys say, 'It's the NBA, everybody makes a run.' But most clichés have some truth to them.

Saturday night at Philips Arena, the Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons showed just how much truth.

Joe Johnson scored a game-high 26 points and Josh Smith added 18 and a career-high 11 assists as the Hawks topped the Pistons, 112-99.

The final score wasn't really indicative, as Atlanta led wire-to-wire, setting a single-game season-high for field goal percentage (making 63.0 percent of their shots) and leading by as much as 28. But Detroit hung around, thanks to a couple of second-half runs sparked by Richard Hamilton in the third quarter and Will Bynum in the fourth.

"The first half was as good a half as we've played all year on both ends of the floor," said Hawks coach Mike Woodson. "The ball was moving tonight, guys were cutting with pace offensively and setting screens. Every play we called they really executed."

Atlanta (42-23) came out roaring, shooting 83.0 percent in the second quarter and 73.0 percent for the half, on their way to a 69-41 halftime lead. The 69 points were the most allowed in a half by Detroit (23-43) this season.

"The Hawks played with a tremendous amount of energy early in the game," said Pistons coach John Kuester, whose team dropped its eighth game in its last 10 and fell to 7-25 on the road. "They know how to turn it on when they have to."

They felt they had to right away to take advantage of the Pistons, who were on the second night of a back-to-back after hosting Washington on Friday and still without their starting point guard in Rodney Stuckey, who scored 23 points to lead the Pistons to a 94-88 win over the Hawks in their previous meeting back in November.

Saturday night, Detroit certainly missed Stuckey, especially early. The Pistons were limited to 25.0 percent shooting (5-for-20) and 12 points in the first quarter, their second-lowest total of the season, and the lowest for a Hawks opponent in the first quarter this season.

Offensively Atlanta spread the ball, as the Hawks had assists on all 12 first-quarter field goals. All five starters scored at least one basket by the 7:16 mark of the opening period, when Al Horford's dunk made it 17-7. That double-figure lead would stand for the remainder of the game, save for one possession in the fourth quarter.

"I came out personally with the mentality that this was a playoff game," said Horford, who had 15 points and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. "We need to start coming out with that kind of focus. I think that made a big difference for our team."

Atlanta's defensive intensity forced the Pistons into six first-quarter turnovers, which they turned into 12 points.

"We didn't match the Hawks' energy coming out in the first half and we turned the ball over a lot early," said Richard Hamilton, who had 18 points on 6-for-13 shooting. I think we did a good job in the second half staying in our sets and not letting them rattle us like they did in the first half."

The second quarter was even more disastrous for the Pistons, who surrendered a season-high 39 points and allowed Atlanta to shoot 83.0 percent (15-for-18). Many of the baskets were lay-ups, as the Hawks dominated in the paint. They outscored Detroit 20-8 in the paint during the second stanza, 58-38 on the game, and took a 69-41 lead into the locker room, their largest first-half lead of the year.

But just when Atlanta started to feel good, Detroit came out in the second half determined to make a game of it.

The Pistons came out on a 10-1 run, with Hamilton and Jonas Jerebko accounting for all 10 points. They outscored Atlanta 36-23 in the quarter, then cut the lead to nine midway through the fourth quarter on a Ben Gordon lay-up.

Jason Maxiell added 11 of his team-high 19 in the second half.

"This is a game about runs, and when you allow the home team to make big runs in the first half, it makes it tough on you," said Hamilton. "Tonight we were fighting an uphill battle the entire game."

Detroit would never get closer than nine points, as Johnson hit an 18-foot fade-away jumper to spark an 11-4 run, quelling the uprising.

Smith accounted for six points in the run with two assists and an ally-oop slam off a Bibby pass.

"Teams are going to make runs," said Smith, who is the only player in the league averaging 15.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, and four assists. "It's very rare a team doesn't hit shots in both halves. I knew we would eventually stop the bleeding. I'm glad we did it sooner than later."

Smith's 18-point, 11-assist performance drew raves from Johnson.

"He never ceases to amaze me," said Johnson. "He's always playing hard and giving us everything he's got. He fills the stat sheet. You talk about somebody who can put up a quadruple-double, I think if anybody can do it he can."

If there was a concern for the Hawks, who moved a half-game ahead of idle Boston and into third place in the Eastern Conference but remained four games behind victorious Orlando in the race for the Southeast Division, it was their recent inability to put the hammer down on teams.

"I'll take the win," said Smith. "We've been letting teams back into ball games. They start to creep in, we just have to give it that last push in the fourth quarter."

Then, again, it's the NBA -- everybody makes a run.

NOTES: Smith had previously dished out 10 assists on three different occasions. The last time was Feb. 5 against Chicago, as part of his first career triple-double. ... Smith's generosity wasn't limited to his teammates. Prior to the game, he was recognized for the impromptu actions in coming to the aid of the family of recently slain McEachern High School student-athlete Rajaan Bennett. Smith, who also attended McEachern, will help them family with their living expenses for the next six months. ... Zaza Pachulia may have made the most memorable pass of the night, with his behind-the-back pass to Joe Smith resulting in a slam dunk. "It was nice. We're going to hear about this for a couple of weeks. He's not going to let that go," joked Smith. ... Bynum and Hawks guard Mario West were teammates on the 2004 Georgia Tech Final Four team. ... One night after ringins up 20 assists, Bynum dished out seven more, against four turnovers. In his last two games, he's recorded 27 assists against seven turnovers. ... Bynum and Kuester were given technicals at 6:11 of the first quarter.
