=== Atlanta Hawks Team Report – March 3 ===

(Sports Network) – Central Division squads square off tonight, as the
Atlanta Hawks visit the Cleveland Cavaliers at Gund Arena.

This is the third meeting of the season between the two squads. The Cavaliers
lost 92-83 to the Hawks on November 22 at Atlanta, while Cleveland beat the
Hawks, 95-85, on December 6 at Gund Arena.

Atlanta has won 10 of 12 and 13 of the last 17 meetings with the Cavaliers.
The Hawks have won four of six and five of their last nine at Cleveland.

The Hawks come into tonight’s game off a surprising victory. Jason Terry
converted 1-of-2 free throws with 11.9 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter
to lift Atlanta past the Los Angeles Lakers, 94-93, at Philips Arena on
Monday. Terry finished with 23 points and five assists.

Stephen Jackson chipped in 17 points and hit a key three-pointer down the
stretch in the victory for Atlanta, which halted a two-game skid. Bob Sura
contributed 15 points and nine rebounds in the win, while Wesley Person added
15 points and eight boards and Joel Przybilla finished with 14 rebounds.

Atlanta is 0-20 when it allows at least 100 points this season and is 3-7 in
Wednesday games this season.

the road.

Terry has scored in double digits in eight straight and 21 of his last 22
games.
