Hawks Snap Pacers Five Game Winning Streak

Last updated on Monday, March 29, 2010

(ATLANTA, GA) - The Indiana Pacers saw their five-game winning streak come to an end as they fell to the Atlanta Hawks 94-84 at Philips Arena.

Josh Smith led the Hawks with 21 points and 13 rebounds with Al Horford adding 18 points and twelve boards as Atlanta completed a sweep of the three-game season series.

Troy Murphy scored 21 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Indiana with Danny Granger following up his career-high 44-point effort against Utah on Friday night with 18 against the Hawks.

Granger had scored more than 30 points in Indiana's four previous games, all wins.

The Pacers fall to 27-47 and will open a four-game home stand on Tuesday when they host the Sacramento Kings.

The loss guarantees the Blue and Gold will finish with their worst record during Jim O'Brien's tenure as head coach.

In O'Brien's first two seasons at the helm, Indiana finished with 36-46 records.
