Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork. Jim Kelly Jersey .com) - The Atlanta Hawks are proving that they can do just fine without their starting point guard. Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 22 points starting in place of Jeff Teague to lead the Hawks to a 105-102 win over the Dallas Mavericks. Teague missed his third straight game with a strained left hamstring. Atlanta has won four straight and closed an impressive three-game road trip that also included wins over Cleveland and Houston. Kyle Korver supplied 18 points, Al Horford had 17 and Paul Millsap deposited 13 points with 12 rebounds in the win. We did a great job, Horford said. It was hard at the end, but Ill take it. Its a win on the road against a good team. Monta Ellis led the Mavs with 18 points on 8-of-22 shooting and Dirk Nowitzki added 16. Dallas had its three-game winning streak snapped. Rajon Rondo, making his second start as a member of the Mavs, contributed the first double-double for his new club with 13 points and 11 assists. An 8-0 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters brought the Mavs within 82-67. The Mavs held Atlanta scoreless for the first 3:36 of the fourth, but could not really take advantage of the cold spell. Horford snapped the string with a jumper, then DeMarre Carroll buried a wing 3-pointer to make it 90-73 in favor of the visitors with 6:52 left. Ellis then converted two layups during an 11-4 burst that Tyson Chandler capped with a driving dunk from Rondo, helping trim the deficit to 96-88 with just over two minutes on the clock. Rondo picked up a steal at the other end and passed to a cutting Ellis on the break, but the latter was held up due to some stingy defense and forced a pass out of bounds. Schroder followed with four straight points to keep Atlanta in front by double digits. Dallas had one last gasp, however. Charlie Villanueva hit two 3s in a span of 13 seconds late in the fourth to cut the deficit to 102-97 before Pero Antic committed a turnover at midcourt. Ellis couldnt convert another trey though, and the Hawks made just enough free throws in the closing seconds to hold off the pesky Mavs. We defended better in the second half, we contained penetration much better, our intensity was much better, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. Atlanta dominated play throughout the first half to claim a 14-point lead at halftime. Schroder led the charge in the opening quarter, scoring 10 points to help the visitors grab a 25-18 lead entering the second. Dallas trailed by six following a Nowitzki jumper early in the second, then Korver unleashed a pair of 3-pointers to push the margin to 35-23. Atlanta held the Mavs to 32.7 percent from the floor, including 21.4 percent from beyond the arc in the opening half, and led 52-38 at the break. When you have to dig out of a big hole, especially against a good team like Atlanta, its going to be difficult, Carlisle added. Schroder netted back-to-back baskets as part of a 13-3 run that gave the Hawks a 69-48 lead with five minutes left in the third. The margin was as many as 24 minutes later prior to Dallas fourth-quarter comeback effort. Game Notes Villanueva had 14 points off the bench ... Korver had his string of 50 consecutive free throws snapped with a miss on a technical free throw ... The Hawks scored 18 points off turnovers ... Carroll finished with 15 points in the win ... Dallas had a 47-43 edge on the glass. Chandler grabbed a game- high 19 boards. Tremaine Edmunds Jersey .

Sterling was banned for life and fined US$2.5 million by the NBA on Tuesday for racist comments the league says he made in a recorded conversation. Nash, who plays for the rival L.A. Lakers, spoke as a representative of current NBA players at a press conference assembled by Sacramento mayor and National Basketball Players Association adviser Kevin Johnson. ATLANTA -- Its over. This time, the Indiana Pacers had a successful regular-season trip to Atlanta. David West scored 22 points, Paul George added 18 and the NBA-leading Pacers beat the Hawks 89-85 on Tuesday night. "This has been a tough place for us, but I thought we came in with the right motivation tonight," West said. "They blitzed us the last time we were down here." The Pacers most recent win in Atlanta came last May in the clinching Game 6 of their first-round playoff series. But Indiana (38-10) had dropped its last 12 regular-season games at the Hawks, including a 97-87 decision on Jan. 8. "I dont have to answer questions about it anymore, so thats good," Indiana coach Frank Vogel said. "Weve had some struggles here, but its not anything we were losing sleep over." Atlanta (25-22) failed to place a starter in double figures. It had won two straight and five of seven. Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver had nine points apiece for the Hawks. All-Star forward Paul Millsap went 2 for 11 from the field and finished with seven points. Teague made a 3-pointer to give Atlanta a 41-35 lead with 1:06 left in the second quarter, but the Hawks were outscored 38-16 over the next 17 minutes. Cartier Martins 3 cut Indianas lead to 86-84 with 14.9 seconds left. C.J. Watson and Danny Granger then combined for three free throws to help the Pacers hold on for the win. "Offensively, it just wasnt one of our better nights," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "I think you have to give Indiana and their defence credit for that." Elton Brand, a 14-year veteran, had 12 points and was the only Hawk to score in double figures before Mike Scott scored nine oof his 15 points in the fourth quarter. Custom Buffalo Bills Jerseys. Scott said its no surprise that Atlantas offence couldnt get much going against a defence that holds opponents to just 90.2 points a game, lowest in the NBA. "Theyre very good," Scott said. "Thats why theyre the best team in the league defensively. We just missed open shots and couldnt get it in." The Pacers had not won in the regular season at Philips Arena since Dec. 22, 2006. "I thought our resolve took over," West said. "We were really precise with our movement and what we wanted to do. And we made plays when we needed to make plays." Ian Mahinmi gave Indiana its biggest lead of the game with a tip-in that made it 73-57 with 8:10 left. Pacers guard Lance Stephenson hit the floor hard on a layup at the 7:56 mark of the third, falling over Millsap in the lane and landing on his left shoulder and hip. Stephenson then converted the three-point play to make it 55-47, but he sat out the last 16 minutes. George stole the ball from rookie point guard Dennis Schroder late in the fourth and scored a fast-break layup to make it 82-74. "Our guys buckled down on the defensive end," Vogel said. "(Atlanta) made a few shots in the last minute or two, but for the most part we held a pretty explosive team down to 85 points. Thats a pretty good effort." NOTES: Indiana improved to 23-0 when holding opponents under 90 points. ... The Pacers are 10-3 since the loss in Atlanta on Jan. 8. ... Korver extended his NBA record to 116 consecutive games with a 3-pointer. Korver began his streak last season in Atlantas second game -- a win at Oklahoma City. ... The Pacers are 15-8 on the road, best in the Eastern Conference.
