Hawks take care of Pacers, await next challenge

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- With the Lakers and Cavs looming, it would have been a mistake for the Hawks to look past Sunday's game against Danny Granger and the Pacers.

So they didn't.

With a balanced attack and substantial help off the bench to supplement a defensive adjustment, Atlanta put the clamps on the Pacers in the third quarter on the way to a 94-84 victory that snapped Indiana's five-game winning streak.

Josh Smith scored 10 points for the winners in the first quarter, Jamal Crawford 10 in the second, and Smith the remaining 11 of his team-high 21 again in the fourth.

The bigger keys, though, were Atlanta limiting Granger to 18 points after he'd averaged 33.6 in the five-game win streak, and the Hawks' man in the middle -- center Al Horford.

Atlanta's center scored 12 of his 18 points and grabbed eight of his 12 rebounds in the decisive third period as the Hawks turned a 50-48 halftime deficit into a 72-63 lead. Horford and Smith combined for 25 rebounds as Atlanta slaughtered Indiana on the glass, 61-44.

Horford registered his eighth consecutive double-double in this, his first All-Star season. "He's been consistent since day one he stepped foot in Atlanta," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said of the third-year pro. "He's been on a nice roll lately, and we're going to continue to need him to do it."

While the Pacers turned in their worst effort of late (they had won six of their previous seven, losing only at Cleveland while beating playoff-bound Charlotte, Oklahoma City and Utah), the Hawks made semi-amends for their clunker Friday at Philadelphia, where they lost 105-98.

More than anything, defense did it.

"We doubled [Granger] some, and our switches were great," Woodson said. "He'd been on a roll. We knew we had to slow him down; he's a big part of what they do."

Granger, who made just 7 of 19 shots after averaging 54.5 percent over his previous five games, wasn't the only Pacer whom Atlanta was doubling. The Hawks made a concerted effort not to let 7-foot-2 center Roy Hibbert hurt them, either.

After Hibbert mustered just two points and zero rebounds in the first half, though, Woodson said the Hawks stopped doubling him with the ball. That freed up defenders to play the rest of the Pacers more honestly, save Granger.

In that third quarter, when Atlanta outscored Indiana 24-13, Hibbert got loose for two points and a rebound, but the Pacers made just six of 19 shots and missed all four 3-pointers. They were also trashed on the boards, 18-10, on the way to losing to the Hawks for the sixth straight time.

"Horford took over in the third quarter, and . . . Josh Smith started to play really well, and that's when things started going downhill for us," said Pacers guard Brandon Rush, who scored 12 of his 14 in the first quarter as Indiana took a 31-26 lead by the end of the period.

Atlanta's collective defense was critical.

Sunday was the first time in six games that Granger failed to score at least 29 points, and the first time in eight that he didn't score at least 26. "Their (Hawks) length always gives us a problem as it did again today," said Indiana coach Jim O'Brien. "We really had trouble with their athleticism."

Troy Murphy was the only Pacer to consistently hurt Atlanta (47-26), but at no point in the second half of his 21-point, 14-rebound effort did it appear as though the visitors might disrupt the Hawks' drive to pass Boston (47-25) for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Perhaps the most interesting moment came when Hawks reserve center Zaza Pachulia stepped in front of Granger's pass to Hibbert on the wing, deflected a pass, made a steal and took off into open space.

Big Hibbert cranked up a head of steam, caught up, and was on Pachulia's inner hip as their lumbering approaches carried them near the top of the key.

Something interesting was about to happen one way or the other.

Sure enough, Pachulia whipped a behind-the-back pass to Smith, who threw down a thundering dunk for an 82-67 lead with 7:18 left in the game.

Smith's dunk on the next possession gave Atlanta its biggest lead, but there was no erasing the memory of the prior play before the Hawks prepared to play host to Western Conference leader Los Angeles Wednesday, and play at Eastern leader Cleveland Friday.

"Zaza likes to do his thing a little bit in the open court so I'm not going to hate on his shine," Smith said. "It was nice."
