Pacers rout Hawks 116-93, win fourth straight game

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Thaddeus Young just wanted to supply the Indiana Pacers with energy. He ended up giving them plenty of points, too.

Young scored 16 of his 20 points in the first half and the Pacers never trailed in a 116-93 rout of the hapless Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.

The 11th-year pro had 10 points by the end of the opening quarter and the Pacers led by 17 by halftime. They were ahead 83-66 entering the final quarter.

"I just wanted to be the engine for the guys," Young said. "It wasn't so much looking for the offensive (success), it just kind of happened."

The Pacers (34-25) won their fourth in a row and improved to 15-6 since Jan. 6, the league's best winning percentage (.714) in that span.

"There's a lot more season left and we've got to go out there and compete at a high level," said Pacers guard Victor Oladipo. "I thought we did a good job of that today for 48 minutes."

The Hawks (18-42), who have the NBA's worst record, are 5-25 on the road and have dropped three in a row overall.

"We just wanted to go out there and compete," Hawks guard Kent Bazemore said. "We didn't do that."

Young shot 7 of 13 and made a pair of 3-pointers in the first half. It's just the sixth time he's scored 20 points this season, the previous occasion a home win against Orlando on Jan. 27.

Backup forward Domantas Sabonis led the Pacers with 21 points and 13 rebounds for his 13th double-double of the season. Six Pacers scored in double digits.

"I think everybody has missed each other," Sabonis said of the first game in nine days due to the All-Star break.

Hawks reserve guard Isaiah Taylor scored 17 points in just his second NBA game.

"A lot of credit to Indiana, the way they play is impressive," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "I liked our team better in the second half, I thought we were more competitive, more together - but you can't wait until halftime to get to that mindset."


Hawks: Failed to score at least 100 points after seven consecutive games over the century mark, the best such stretch since a streak of nine games in 2016. . F/C John Collins has 143 offensive rebounds, which leads all NBA rookies. The next closest player is Philadelphia's Ben Simmons at 100. . G Dennis Schroder, the team's leading scorer at 19.5 points per game, is one of just three players in the league to amass at least 90 steals and 40 blocks. The Pacers' Victor Oladipo and Simmons are the other two.

Pacers: Improved to 21-11 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and assured themselves of a winning record at home for the 29th consecutive season, the longest such streak in the NBA. . New Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich, hired 12 days ago, was in attendance and received rousing applause when he was shown on the arena's video screens. . Oladipo extended his franchise-record steal streak to 42 games with an opening-quarter theft. Ron Artest (2002-03) held the previous mark at 40. Oladipo averages 2.1 steals, which ranks third in the league. . PG Darren Collison missed his fifth consecutive game as he recovers from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.


Pacers reserve G/F Glenn Robinson III was understandably amped up for his season debut after undergoing extensive rehabilitation from left ankle surgery. The fourth-year pro was so excited, he shot an airball on an initial 19-foot jumper.

About 90 seconds later, Robinson faked a defender out of position and swished a 21-foot pull-up shot. As he jogged down the court, Sabonis acknowledged the moment by tapping an appreciative Robinson on the back of the head. Robinson had four points and two rebounds in 19 minutes.


The Hawks have nine players on their 15-man roster with one year or less of NBA experience, an average of 2.3 years of service as the league's youngest team, according to Elias.


Hawks: Host the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.

Pacers: Visit Dallas on Monday.

The Latest: Ban assault weapons, civil rights activist says

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Latest on civil rights activists being honored in Mississippi (all times local):

8:15 p.m.

The woman who faced threats and harassment when she integrated a southern school as a child several decades ago says "the next civil rights movement" should be banning assault weapons.

Ruby Bridges Hall said Friday at a celebration of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum that she is distressed by mass shootings at U.S. schools.

Then known simply as Ruby Bridges, she was 6 when she became the first African-American child to enroll in an elementary school in New Orleans in 1960. When she enrolled, some white parents withdrew their children. And she could only eat food brought from home because someone threatened to poison her.

Hall is a native of Tylertown, Mississippi. She is one of five civil rights activists being honored at a gala Friday in the capital city of Jackson. It is part of a celebration of the civil rights museum, which opened in December.


11:09 p.m.

Longtime U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is one of five people who are going to be honored for their work to advance civil rights.

The recognition will take place during a celebration of the new Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in Jackson.

Organizers have planned a gala for Friday and a symposium for Saturday.

Lewis was scheduled to speak at the museum's opening in December but canceled his appearance because Republican Gov. Phil Bryant invited President Donald Trump.

Lewis said Thursday that he's never met Trump, but couldn't be at an event with him because of the "unbelievable things" the president had said about African-Americans and Latinos.

Rivers scores 22, Mercer wins seventh straight, 82-70

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Demetre Rivers scored 22 points and Mercer defeated The Citadel 83-70 on Friday for the Bears' seventh consecutive victory.

Jordan Strawberry added three 3-pointers in scoring 17 points and had nine assists. Ross Cummings scored 14 points as the Bears (17-13, 10-7 Southern) shot 49 percent, outscoring the Bulldogs 36-16 in the paint.

Matt Frierson made five of The Citadel's 14 3-pointers and scored 18 points to lead the Bulldogs (10-19, 5-12), who have lost five of their last six. Zane Najdawi scored 17 points with seven rebounds, Kaelon Harris had 13 points and Kaiden Rice got his 12 points on 3-pointers.

Rivers scored nine points and Cory Kilby all nine of his during a 22-9 run that left the Bears ahead 58-46 with 12 minutes left. The Citadel got within seven in the final minute but Mercer made 8 of 8 free throws from there.

Kyle Busch wins Atlanta pole, Wallace still in spotlight

HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) - Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. was the hot topic even as Kyle Busch won the pole Friday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Busch will start in front Sunday in the second race of the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup season after edging Ryan Newman in a close battle.

Busch overcame handling problems in the first two rounds of qualifying to win the pole with a lap of 184.652 mph in the third round. Busch won his 28th career pole, and his first at Atlanta.

Busch beat Newman's 184.419 mph.

Wallace will start 19th, in the middle of the 36-car field. Much of the talk Friday remained on his second-place finish in last week's Daytona 500 .

Wallace was the first black driver in the Daytona 500 field since 1969 . The second-place finish was the highest for a black driver and any rookie.

"It was just crazy, awesome," Wallace said Friday.

On Sunday, he'll be the first black Cup racer in an Atlanta race since Bill Lester finished 38th in 2006.

Ryan Blaney, who will start 26th, revealed Friday that last week Dale Earnhardt Jr . was so worried about Wallace that he arranged for Blaney to provide counsel for the rookie.

"He was like 'Hey, I need you to go call Bubba and calm him down because I think he was getting overwhelmed with all the media and the pressure that was kind of being thrown upon him and we haven't even gotten started yet,'" Ryan Blaney said.

Blaney, who is friends with both Earnhardt and Wallace, said he encouraged Wallace to enjoy the "well-deserved opportunity."

Blaney said the second-place finish proved Wallace "dealt with it really well."

Kevin Harvick qualified third, followed by Daniel Suarez. Defending champion Brad Keselowski qualified fifth. Austin Dillon, coming off the win at Daytona, will start 25th.

Defending NASCAR Cup champion Martin Truex will start 35th after his car did not pass inspection. As a penalty, car chief Blake Harris was suspended for the weekend and a 30-minute practice hold will be enforced on Saturday.

Wallace finished sixth in Atlanta's Xfinity race last year.

"This will be my first time in Atlanta in a Cup car," he said. "I know how this place is in an Xfinity car and it's not any fun, well it's a lot of fun, don't get me wrong, but hanging onto that thing is a challenge. I'm looking forward to it."

Wallace's boss, team owner Richard Petty, said the rookie is adjusting just fine.

"No, he don't feel like he's a rookie," Petty said. "... I think he fell in really good with the guys who have been there for a long time because so far he hasn't done anything really stupid. As long as we keep him straight, he'll be OK."

The strong showing at Daytona solidified the status of Wallace, 24, as a rising star in NASCAR.

Atlanta Motor Speedway president Ed Clark said calls to his ticket office this week were dominated by fans expressing interest in Wallace.

"He's going to be great," Clark said.

Blaney and Wallace have been friends since the two 10-year-old boys raced Bandolero cars together.

Blaney said he believes Wallace "can have a huge impact" on the 43 Chevrolet and "grow it to places it hasn't been in recent years."

The only distraction for Wallace is a feud with Denny Hamlin. Wallace said Friday he has been excluded from Hamlin's informal golf league, which includes a few other NASCAR drivers. Wallace added "I removed myself" from Hamlin's basketball league.

The problems between the two began last week when Wallace objected to what Hamlin said was intended to be a joke when he claimed 70 percent of NASCAR drivers take the prescription drug Adderall to help with concentration.
