John Collins scored two of his 16 points against the Indiana Pacers Wednesday off a monster jam in the fourth quarter.
Collins, who started Wednesday’s game at power forward, rebounded the ball off a layup attempt by Taurean Prince to give the Atlanta Hawks a 95-78 lead with 6:45 remaining in the game.
The Hawks, who had 18 total fast break points against the Pacers, started the possession off a steal by Kent Bazemore when Pacers’ Victor Oladipo turned the ball over. Dennis Schroder gained possession of the ball and drove down the floor, tossing the ball to Prince for his layup attempt.
Collins played 27 minutes and shot 7-of-9 from the field for 16 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in the Hawks 107-102 win. Schroder, who shot 4-of-13 from the field, recorded 14 points, five assists and five steals in 32 minutes in Wednesday’s win.
