Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Al Horford scored the go-ahead basket with 21.5
seconds left to lift the Atlanta Hawks to a 93-92 win over the Toronto Raptors
Hawks guard Kyle Korver canned a 3-pointer with just under two minutes left to
tie the game at 89-89, but Alan Anderson knocked down a 3-pointer of his own
to give the Raptors a 92-89 lead with 1:09 left.
Horford then knocked down a pair of free throws just under 11 seconds later to
pull Atlanta within 92-91.
Korver grabbed John Lucas III's missed jumper at the other end and the Hawks
quickly called timeout.
Following the timeout, Josh Smith took the inbounds pass, dribbled to his
left, and then found Horford cutting to the basket and Horford slammed it
Raptors guard Kyle Lowry drove to the basket with 12.6 seconds left, but was
rejected by Horford, and Toronto called a timeout to regroup.
Coming out of the timeout, DeMar DeRozan lost control of the ball, but
Anderson came out of a small scrum with the ball and fired up a desperation
jumper that hit the front of the rim.
DeRozan, though, grabbed the rebound, but was blocked by Horford, who threw
the ball down the court as time expired.
