Horford, Pargo help Hawks rally past Minnesota
ATLANTA 104, MINNESOTA 96

By GEORGE HENRY
Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) -- Al Horford scored a season-high 28 points,
Jannero Pargo had 16 and the Atlanta Hawks snapped a two-game
slide with a 104-96 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on
Monday.



Derrick Williams finished with 17 points and Jose Barea had 14
for Minnesota, which lost for the sixth time in seven games
after blowing an 18-point lead in the second quarter.



Injuries at guard forced the Hawks to sign Pargo to a 10-day
contract earlier Monday, and he did not disappoint.



The 33-year-old, nine-year NBA journeyman hit a 3-pointer from
the left corner with 5:26 remaining to give the Hawks their
first lead since the 9:40 mark of the first quarter.



Horford pulled down 10 rebounds, and Jeff Teague handed out 10
assists with nine points to help the Hawks win for the third
time in 11 games.



Atlanta's depth problems at guard are substantial with Lou
Williams sidelined for the rest of the season because of a torn
knee ligament, Devin Harris nursing a sprained left ankle and
DeShawn Stevenson and Anthony Morrow held out again on Monday.



Pargo, who played 50 games for Atlanta last season and seven
with Washington this season, played 25 minutes as rookie John
Jenkins failed to score after making his first career start.



Minnesota took its biggest lead at 18 points on Andrei
Kirilenko's three-point play at the 4:49 mark of the second
quarter, but the Hawks went on a 35-17 run that ended on Mike
Scott's dunk to force a 69-69 tie at the 3:18 of the third.



Kyle Korver added 14 points, Anthony Tolliver 11 and Josh Smith
10 for Atlanta.



Kirilenko and Dante Cunningham each scored 13 points, and Greg
Stiemsma added 11 for the Timberwolves.



Minnesota was without forward Kevin Love (hand), center Nikola
Pekovic (thigh) and guard Alexey Shved (ankle). Cunningham was a
game-time decision because he had the flu.



The Hawks outscored Minnesota 60-38 in the second half, shooting
23 for 31 from the field.



NOTES: Terry Porter, filling in while Rick Adelman cares for his
sick wife, dropped to 2-6 as Minnesota's interim head coach. ...
Atlanta tied a season high by shooting 57.7 percent from the
field. ... The Timberwolves have lost five straight on the road
and are 6-15 away from home.
