GAME RECAP

Dikembe Mutombo had 18 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks as the Atlanta Hawks remained unbeaten against the Toronto Raptors with a 90-85 victory in their home opener.

Alan Henderson and Steve Smith each added 17 points for the Hawks, who improved to 9-0 all-time against the Raptors.

Atlanta played the first of 13 scheduled games at Georgia Tech's Alexander Coliseum. It was the first time since 1972 that the Hawks played a regular-season game at Georgia Tech. They will play 28 home games at the Georgia Dome while their new arena is being built.

Mutombo scored six points on three dunks during a game-opening 14-2 run. The 1997 Defensive Player of the Year also asserted himself at the defensive end, blocking three shots by Marcus Camby within the first three minutes. The Hawks collected a total of 10 blocks.

"We feel good as a team. We just need to continue to play like we are playing," said Mutombo. "At the begiinig of the game guys were trying to adjust with their shots (at the new arena). Hopefully, we will get used to it."

Atlanta also got 11 rebounds from Mookie Blaylock and held a 50-35 advantage on the glass. The Hawks held the Raptors to 38 percent (35-for-92) from the field.

Damon Stoudamire scored 21 points and had six assists for Toronto, which lost its opener Friday at Miami. Walt Williams added 16 points.

"We played well, especially since we haven't played here before," said Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens. "Our depth perception was off at the beginning of the game. ... I guess we're 2-0 on the road."

The Raptors trailed 52-36 at halftime but closed the deficit to 60-54 on a jumper by Shawn Respert with 3:18 left in the third quarter. Stoudamire, Williams and Doug Christie each scored six points in the period as Toronto cut it to 67-60 entering the final 12 minutes.

Stoudamire's layup cut it to 69-66 with 10:18 remaining and Toronto still within 75-71 after two free throws by Williams with 6:16 left. But Smith scored four points as Atlanta ran off eight in a row, widening its lead to 83-71 with 3:42 to go.

"The NBA is so hard, everyone makes a run," said Smith. "The mature team can outlast the runs. We feel real good as a team. Better than last year when we started 0-2. People are chasing us now."

Christie fouled out with 7 1/2 minutes left and Williams did the same three minutes later.

"We dug ourselves a hole in the first quarter," said Jones. "We were trying to get back into the game. We just couldn't get that basket."
