    ATLANTA 99, PHOENIX 94

    PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Dion Glover scored a season-high 23 points and hit the biggest of 10 3-pointers by the Atlanta Hawks in a 99-94 victory over the Phoenix Suns.

    With 1:22 left, Glover made a 3-pointer from the right corner to give the Hawks a 95-91 lead and stem a rally by the Suns, who had trailed by 10 points early in the fourth quarter.

    Shawn Marion responded with a 3-pointer, but the Suns did not score again and Jason Terry and Glover each hit two free throws in the final 20 seconds to seal the win - Atlanta's first win in the Valley of the Sun since November 15, 1991 at the old Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

    Glover shot 4-of-5 from the arc, leading an attack that made 10-of-21 3-pointers. The Hawks shot 46 percent (37-of-81) overall.

    Stephen Jackson scored 18 points, including back-to-back 3-pointers to open the final quarter and give the Hawks a 79-72 lead. After a dunk by rookie Zarko Cabarkapa cut the deficit to five points, Atlanta surged to a double-digit lead on a jumper by Theo Ratliff and a 3-pointer by Terry.

    Marion and Marbury led the Suns with 22 points apiece.
