with helping the 20-time English champions

ATLANTA -- The Indiana Pacers always seem to struggle in Atlanta. This was no exception. Kyle Korver scored 17 points, Pero Antic added 16 and the Hawks raced to a big lead before holding off the team with the NBAs best record, beating the weary Pacers 97-87 Wednesday night. The Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak and extended Indianas misery at Philips Arena, where the Pacers (28-7) havent won since 2006. They dropped their 12th in a row in Atlanta, the teams longest active road losing streak against any team. "Guys didnt have a lot of pop to start the game," coach Frank Vogel said. "Shots werent falling, catches were a step slow in a lot of areas. But Im proud of our guys for battling back in the second half, making it a game." Indiana looked very much like a squad playing its fourth game in five nights, not to mention having to deal with travel issues because of the arctic weather. The Pacers managed just 12 points in the first quarter and 32 in the opening half -- both season lows. Paul George led Indiana with 28 points. He didnt get much help. "This is definitely a winnable game for us, but its a tough stretch, four out of five, travel situations that we had," George said. "Its not an excuse, but its nothing to be down about at this point." The Hawks ended Indianas three-game winning streak, handing the Pacers just their second loss in 10 games. "We were playing a great team," said Antic, who scored 12 of his 16 in the first half. "We want to prove to everybody that we can win these type of games." Atlanta took advantage of their sluggish opponents right from the start, racing to a 12-0 lead before most of the sparse crowd had settled into their seats. The Hawks built a 49-32 lead by halftime and were up by as many 25 in the third quarter. "Down 12 points to start the game off, you give a team like this all the confidence in the world, them playing at home," George said. "They just played with confidence at that point. I felt like thats where we lost the game." But the Eastern Conference leaders, who never led, werent about to go that easily. They clamped down at the defensive end against a team that must spread things around to make up for the loss of centre Al Horford, out with a season-ending injury. The Pacers picked it up offensively, too, scoring more points in the third quarter than they did in the first two combined. Heading to the fourth, Atlantas lead was down to 79-66. The Pacers got as close as eight in the final period but finally ran out of steam, making only two of their last nine shots. "We were climbing uphill the rest of the way and werent able to pull it out." Vogel said. Indiana played without guard Lance Stephenson, who didnt dress because of a bruised right knee. Danny Granger started in his place, with George moving to Stephensons shooting guard spot. George lit up the Hawks, knocking down 11 of 25 from the field -- including three shots beyond the arc -- and leading the Pacers with 12 rebounds. Granger with 14 points and George Hill with 10 were his only teammates in double figures, however. The Hawks were much more balanced, overcoming a poor night by Paul Millsaps. Atlantas top scorer made only 1 of 10, but the other four starters were in double figures and Mike Scott added 15 off the bench. Atlanta got a boost before the game when Horford, who had surgery a week ago for a torn pectoral muscle, stopped by the locker room. "Were still trying to figure things out without Al," Korver said. "It takes time. Were still not there, but tonight was a great win for our team." NOTES: Korver went 3 of 5 from 3-point range, extending his NBA-record streak to 105 games in a row with at least one trey. He knocked down his first early in the third quarter from the top of the key, also drawing a foul and converting the four-point play. ... Pacers F David West went out in the second quarter with an injured right hand. He iced it on the bench and returned in the second half. ... While Millsaps struggled offensively, finishing with only four points, he chipped in with six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block. Ricky Jean-Francois Jersey . -- Dustin Tokarski made 32 saves as the Norfolk Admirals extended their record winning streak to 21 games with a 2-0 victory over the St. Ricky Jean-Francois Redskins Jersey .25 million in bonuses based on starts.The 30-year-old right-hander agreed to an $8 million, one-year contract with the Padres in November 2013 but got hurt during spring training and had elbow ligament-replacement surgery on April 24. http://www.theredskinsprostore.com/Auth … s_Jersey/. Walking with a noticeable limp, Kyle Lowry boarded the team bus following a 93-83 loss to the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. The result of the game was of little importance. Andre Roberts Jersey . Canada was 2-0-2 in the round-robin portion of the tournament and had trouble finding any offensive spark. That changed in the playoff portion, as 17-year-old Boyd Devereaux scored a clutch marker late in the semi-final to beat Russia 3-2 and then opened the scoring in the final as Canada beat the United States 2-0 to claim gold. DeSean Jackson Jersey . JOHNS, N.MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United signed midfielder Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao on Thursday, the first recruit since Louis van Gaal took charge of the struggling club. The 24-year-old Herrera will join on a four-year contract after he receives an international transfer certificate. United says it triggered a buyout clause in Herreras contract. Herrera will be tasked with helping the 20-time English champions return to the Premier Leagues top four to qualify for the Champions League after finishing in seventh place last month. Uniteds dire formm in the first season following Alex Fergusons retirement led to David Moyes being fired as manager.dddddddddddd Van Gaal was hired last month, but wont take charge until completing the World Cup with the Netherlands. Ryan Giggs, who stayed on as a temporary stint in charge as assistant manager, said Herrera was signed for his "great energy and creativity."
