ATLANTA - Kyle Korver got out ahead of the break, took a pass from Al Horford and saw a clear path to the basket.It was time to show his teammates that he really can dunk.With Korver providing the highlight of the night with his first slam in more than two years, the Atlanta Hawks cruised past the Indiana Pacers 110-91 on Wednesday night, tying the franchise record with their 14th straight victory.Even though it was another balanced effort, led by DeMarre Carroll and Jeff Teague scoring 17 points apiece, everyone wanted to chime in on Korvers above-the-rim exploits.Its been a while, Korver said, looking over at teammate Dennis Schroder with a big smile. Dennis didnt think I could dunk. He asked me if that was my first one ever.Actually, it was the 16th in a 12-year NBA career, according to STATS, but Korvers first since Nov. 16, 2012, at Sacramento a span of 198 games.I didnt even know it was him, Horford said. Once he got it, I didnt think he would dunk it. He caught me by surprise.With the victory, which improved the Hawks conference-leading record to a stunning 35-8, Mike Budenholzer clinched a spot as the Eastern coach in next months All-Star Game in New York City.I had hoped you wouldnt mention that, said Budenholzer, in his second season as Atlantas coach after a long stint as an assistant to Gregg Popovich at San Antonio.Budenholzer should be taking several players with him. The Hawks romped to their 28th victory in the last 30 games, showing the kind of teamwork that has become their trademark in a season no one saw coming.Its a great honour, but I think its the players that put you in that position, the coach said. Were the fortunate ones who get the honour of coaching an All-Star Game. Ill do my best to enjoy it.Ten Atlanta players scored before halftime, with the pesky Carroll leading the way. All five starters finished in double figures, and Pero Antic chipped in off the bench with 12 points.C.J. Miles led the Pacers with 18 points. Indiana shot just 39.7 per cent and lost its sixth in a row.Theyre a team thats hot and were not playing very well, said the Pacers Luis Scola. We had a bad game and this is what happened.The Hawks seized control late in the second by simply outworking the Pacers. After David West let a pass slip through his hands and roll back across the midcourt line, he paused briefly in frustration while Teague raced by him to scoop up the loose ball for an uncontested layup.Indiana missed on its next possession, and Antic knocked down a 3-pointer. Just like that, the home team had stretched its lead to 47-32.Up 52-41 at halftime, the Hawks quickly put things away at the start of the third, burying the Pacers from the 3-point stripe. Paul Millsap, Teague and Carroll all swished from long range in a 13-4 spurt that made it 65-45.Carroll wasnt done. After the Pacers deflected one of his passes, he hustled for the loose ball, drove for the basket and put up a shot that rimmed out. Antic rebounded, whipped it back outside, and the Hawks passed all the way around the arc, setting up Carroll for an open 3-pointer from the corner.Nothing but net.A few seconds later, with his team up by 25, Carroll knocked the ball away, dove to the court and called timeout to ensure the Hawks kept possession. The crowd gave him an appreciative cheer on the way to the bench.They dont call me the Junkyard Dog for nothing, said Carroll, who bounced around to four teams before finding a home in Atlanta. I dont take anything for granted.ALL STARSBudenholzer is the first Hawks coach since Lenny Wilkens in 1994 to lead a team at the All-Star Game. Budenholzers staff will include Kenny Atkinson, Darvin Ham, Taylor Jenkins, Charles Lee, Neven Spahija and Ben Sullivan.TIP-INSPacers: This is their third losing streak of at least six games. ...

Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey ... maybe even more than that. Maybe all season I have to take a few blows. At first glance, you would think that everything went according to plan for the Miami Heat in 2012-13. They picked up an NBA-best 66 wins in the regular season and a second straight NBA championship. While the end result was what they wanted, the Heats road to the title was anything but a cakewalk. In fact, if Ray Allen doesnt nail a second-chance three with 5.2 seconds left in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, its the Spurs, not the Heat hoisting the Larry OBrien. Instead of talking about a title, wed be talking about how the Heats vaunted big three came up short for the second time in three seasons. And LeBron James, instead of winning a second straight Finals MVP, is back to hearing about how he choked in the clutch after missing three straight shots prior to Allens dagger through the heart of San Antonio. Of course, Allen did hit that three and the Heat did go on tto beat San Antonio in Game 7, capping one of the most thrilling NBA Finals ever.dddddddddddd The Heat remain one of the best teams in the NBA and lost only one significant piece from last years team in Mike Miller. They still have the best player in the world and will be favoured to win a third straight title. However, the more difficult than expected playoff run, particularly their trouble handling big, physical teams, has left questions as to whether or not the Heat have what it takes to three-peat. Or more specifically have other teams, expecially in the Eastern Conference caught up to the Heat? Add in the fact that James, Wade and Bosh are all eligible to opt out of their contracts after this season and the situation in Miami isnt quite as sunny as you might think.
