INDIANAPOLIS — Josh Smith scored 25 points to help the Atlanta Hawks beat the Indiana Pacers 102-92 on Tuesday night.
Smith also had eight rebounds and seven blocks. Mike Bibby scored 16 points and Al Horford added 15 for the Hawks, who won their second straight after a four-game losing streak.
Danny Granger scored 22 points for the Pacers. Roy Hibbert had 18 points and a career-high 15 rebounds, and Mike Dunleavy added 14 points for the Pacers.
The Pacers were short-handed, as 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 same period to fall behind by double digits.
