GAME RECAP

Dikembe Mutombo had 34 points, 19 rebounds and six blocks and Ed Gray hit the go-ahead three-pointer with 50 seconds left as the Atlanta Hawks won their 11th straight overtime game and dealt the Toronto Raptors their 11th consecutive loss, 109-104.

The Hawks' 11 straight overtime wins tie an NBA record held by the San Antonio Spurs.

John Wallace, who tied a career high with 30 points, nailed a jumper with 62 seconds to go that gave the Raptors a 104-102 lead. Gray, all alone at the top of the key, put the Hawks ahead for good, 105-104, just 12 seconds later.

"Christian Laettner made the pass to me and I made my shot, I was wide open," said Gray. "I had a great look just waiting for the ball to come to me. Not to take anything away from Toronto, they played a great game. But I thought we should have been on the bus on the way to the airport after regulation."

After Toronto failed to beat the shot clock, Mookie Blaylock hit the first of two free throws with 21 seconds left. The Hawks pulled down the rebound of the second shot and Tyrone Corbin hit a free throw to extend the lead to 107-104. A pair of foul shots by Gray capped the scoring with 4.5 seconds to play.

Laettner scored 19 of his 23 points in the second half and Gray added 20 for Atlanta, which has taken the last 10 meetings with Toronto.

"We started the season incredibly well and after the winning streak stopped at 11 against New York, that kind of bothered us," said Mutombo. "As professionals, we wanted to find a way to shake the monkey off our backs. We thought this game would start another winning streak, but it was very hard."

Damon Stoudamire had 21 points and 13 assists and Popeye Jones chipped in with 21 points and 16 rebounds for the Raptors, who fell to 1-8 at home. It was the 10th time this season that Stoudamire scored at least 20 points.

Stoudamire tied the game twice with end-of-quarter heroics. He hit a pair from the foul line with 4.5 seconds remaining in regulation to knot it, 85-85. With time running down in the first overtime, he hit a jumper, stole the ensuing inbounds pass and dished to Jones, who found Wallace for the tying jumper with 1.7 left.

"We don't need any building blocks," Wallace said. "I'm ready to just build wins, forget the building blocks. We don't give up, we overcome adversity."

Wallace, who also had 11 rebounds, triggered a 12-5 run that pulled Toronto even at the end of regulation. The Raptors trailed 80-73 when Wallace sank a jumper with 4:13 to go and Stoudamire hit a free throw to narrow the deficit to four.

Chucky Brown extended the lead to six with a bucket, but with 1:08 left, Stoudamire connected from behind the arc and Mutombo followed with two missed free throws. Jones hit a jumper to cut it to one but Blaylock sliced through the lane to give Atlanta an 84-81 edge.

Jones drained another jumper and the Raptors fouled Laettner with 13 seconds to go. He hit 1-of-2, but Stoudamire was fouled driving the lane and sank both free throws to send it to overtime.

"A moral victory is still hard to take for this team because we are past the moral victory stage," Jones said. "But I have to give credit to the guys, we played our hearts out. It was a very emotional game, we left it all on the court."

Atlanta took charge in the first overtime with a 6-0 run, opening a 95-89 lead with 1:41 left. But the Raptors fought back and trailed by a basket after Stoudamire's jumper with 4.5 seconds to go. The inbounds attempt slipped from Laettner's hands and Stoudamire came up with the ball, firing a quick pass to Jones leading to Wallace's foul-line jumper which knotted it, 98-98.

Mutombo set a career high by hitting 14 of his 28 field goal attempts for the Hawks, who received nine points from Gray after regulation. Atlanta shot 45 percent (43-of-95) but was just 2-of-10 from three-point range.

"This was not one of our better games," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens. "We played too casual, missed a lot of free throws and that's uncharacteristic of us."

Wallace set a Toronto record by playing 57 minutes and Jones tied a team mark with 10 rebounds in the fourth quarter. Reggie Slater had 13 points and 10 boards and Doug Christie contributed 11 points for the Raptors, who shot 39 percent (39-of-99) from the field. Toronto, which was without injured forward-center Marcus Camby, was outscored in the paint, 60-32.

Atlanta was without guard Steve Smith, who left the team due to a death in the family.
