Hawks continue to pull out of slump

INDIANAPOLIS — Josh Smith had 25 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks to help the Hawks beat the Pacers 102-92 on Tuesday night.

Mike Bibby scored 16 and former Gator Al Horford 15 for Atlanta, which won its second straight after a four-game skid.

Danny Granger scored 22 for Indiana. Roy Hibbert had 18 points and a career-high 15 rebounds, and Mike Dunleavy added 14 points for the Pacers.

Pacers point guard Darren Collison and reserve forward Tyler Hansbrough sat out with sprained left ankles.

One week after Indiana had a near-perfect 54-point third quarter against Denver, the Pacers shot 6-for-16 in the third to fall behind by double digits.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Kobe Bryant had 31 points, Shannon Brown added 16 of his 21 in the fourth quarter and the visiting Lakers beat the Bucks 118-107 to snap a two-game losing streak.

MAGIC GAME RESCHEDULED: The Magic-Knicks game that was postponed from Nov. 2 because of an asbestos scare at Madison Square Garden will be played March 28.

KARL'S FUTURE: Nuggets coach George Karl said he'll return next season only if he doesn't have setbacks in his recovery from throat and neck cancer. Karl, in the last year of his contract, said he won't hesitate to call it a career if he has to reduce the stress in his life.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Wizards rookie point guard John Wall was inactive with a sprained left foot. … Trail Blazers leading scorer Brandon Roy sat out with a left knee injury. … The Timberwolves expect point guard Luke Ridnour to return to the lineup tonight against the Clippers after missing five games with a strained left hamstring.
