GAME RECAP

Reserves Alan Henderson and Ed Gray fueled a second-quarter burst as the unbeaten Atlanta Hawks continued the best start in franchise history with their ninth straight win, 104-103 over the Sacramento Kings.

Christian Laettner had 18 points and 12 rebounds and Henderson added 17 points for the Hawks, who have won their last five games by a combined 10 points. Atlanta has beaten Sacramento six straight times overall and 10 in a row at home.

"Starting out 9-0 is great," Laettner said. "It's something that hasn't been done too many times."

"I felt like we had control of the game, even though at the end of the game it was close," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "But I wanted to give those players an opportunity and the best way is when we're at home and they're a little more comfortable."

Mitch Richmond scored 23 points for the Kings, who never led and have not won in Atlanta since February 16th, 1988. Sacramento was coming off a 26-point rout of Orlando, its largest win in nearly three years.

Henderson scored 11 points and Gray added eight of his nine in the second quarter, when the Hawks outscored the Kings 28-21 to open a 50-37 halftime lead.

After a basket by rookie Tariq Abdul-Wahad cut the deficit to 29-25 with 8:42 left, Gray made two free throws. A jumper by Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf again cut the deficit to four points, but Randy Livingston had a three-point play and Henderson added a dunk and layup to build the lead to 38-27 with 5:22 left in the period. Gray assisted on all three baskets.

"I was going to the hole strong," Gray said. "It felt good."

The Hawks built their largest lead at 56-37 with 9:50 to go in the third quarter on a basket by Steve Smith, who scored 16 points. Atlanta led 74-62 entering the fourth quarter and still held a 103-95 advantage after Smith's free throw with 18 seconds to play before a late flurry by the Kings.

"It's fun to be 9-0," Henderson said. "It was another good win for us. We kind of let up at the end of the game. We could have put it away with a big blowout in the third quarter but we didn't."

Abdul-Rauf made a jumper and Gray sank a foul shot before rookie Derek Grimm and Richmond hit three-pointers in the closing four seconds for the final margin.

"We just made some shots at the end to make a game out of it," Richmond said. "You know, we almost made a run of it. We were hoping for a three-pointer and a foul."

Tyrone Corbin scored 14 points and Dikembe Mutombo had nine rebounds and four blocks for the Hawks, who shot 47 percent (40-of-85) from the field and held a 48-45 edge on the glass. Atlanta has outrebounded every opponent this season.

Abdul-Rauf scored 20 points and Lawrence Funderburke added 16, both off the bench, for the Kings, who shot 42.5 percent (37-of-87). Olden Polynice had 14 points and eight rebounds.

"Our team needs to keep their heads in the game, keep the energy up, have some confidence," Kings coach Eddie Jordan said. "We have a young team and I used a lot of young guys there down the stretch and that's what we need. We need a victory but we need our guys to keep pushing like that, keep the confidence up and know that they can play late in the game against a good team."

Corbin scored four points as Atlanta opened the game with an 8-0 run. The Kings responded with a 9-2 burst, but the Hawks took a 22-16 lead after one quarter behind Laettner's 10 points.
