the Atlanta Hawks to an 84-76 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Thursday at

Sura recorded his sixth double-double of the season and 12th of his career, as
Atlanta ended a three-game losing streak and, for now, avoided its first 50-

a victory on its homecourt in the two previous contests. The teams will play
again on April 9th at the United Center.

Sura has averaged 15 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists in his last 10
