    Hawks 0-6 in OT games this season

    ATLANTA (AP) -- Rookie Willie Green scored a career-high 26 points and Samuel Dalembert added 18 points and 18 rebounds to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 103-100 overtime win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.

    With the Sixers protecting a 101-100 lead in overtime, Eric Snow hit a jump shot with 8.6 seconds left to push the lead to three points. Bob Sura missed a last-second 3-pointer to leave the Hawks 0-6 in overtime games this season.

    Green has provided scoring off the bench late in the season for Philadelphia, which has been playing without leading scorer Allen Iverson. In his previous seven games, Green had averaged 13.9 points. His previous career high was 22 points against Portland last Thursday.

    Chris Crawford and Stephen Jackson each scored 26 points to lead the Hawks.

    Crawford, who scored 11 points in the first period, has scored in double figures in 22 consecutive games.

    Snow, Aaron McKie and Kenny Thomas each added 18 points for Philadelphia.

    With Philadelphia leading 91-89, Jackson missed a jump shot with less than 20 seconds left to play in regulation. Dalembert grabbed the rebound for the Sixers and was fouled by Jason Terry with 15.1 seconds left, but Dalembert missed two free throws to give the Hawks another chance.

    Sura missed a layup with nine seconds left but was fouled by Dalembert. Sura made only one of two free throws, cutting the Sixers' lead to 91-90.

    After Snow also made only one of two free throws with 7.1 seconds left, Sura was fouled by Green with 1.7 seconds left. Sura made both free throws to tie the game, 92-92, and force overtime.

    Terry, who shot 2-of-11 in a loss at New Jersey on Sunday, was only 1-of-9 in the first half against the Sixers. He fouled out late in regulation with 11 points on 5-of-17 shooting.

    Terry wasn't the only poor shooter early in the game for the Hawks, who missed their first 10 shots in the first eight minutes of the second period and trailed 45-35 at halftime.

    Atlanta closed the gap in the third period and grabbed a 69-64 lead when Jackson opened the fourth period with back-to-back 3-pointers.
