GAME RECAP

Christian Laettner scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Tyrone Corbin added 19 points as the Atlanta Hawks continued their mastery of the Portland Trail Blazers and won their third straight game with a 99-90 victory.

Atlanta defeated the Trail Blazers for the sixth straight time and improved to 6-0 in the second of games played on back-to-back nights. The Hawks also bettered their record to 18-5, tying the Seattle SuperSonics for the league's best record.

"This win says a lot about this club, a lot about the dedication," Corbin claimed. "(It shows) the committment we have to winning and focusing and buckling down when we needed to. Back-to-backs are very tough in this league, especially on the road."

Dikembe Mutombo also had 19 points for the Hawks, who went ahead for good late in the second quarter before taking control with an 11-1 third-quarter run.

Kenny Anderson, who left briefly after injuring his leg in the third quarter, scored 20 points and Rasheed Wallace contributed 16 for Portland, which fell to 6-5 at home.

"They executed and played well tonight," Anderson admitted. "We need to put this one in the history books and come back tomorrow night against Sacramento."

Steve Smith recorded 11 points and Mookie Blaylock contributed eight and six assists without a turnover for Atlanta, which shot 46 percent (37-of-81) and committed just eight turnovers.

Ed Gray scored 16 points off the bench for the Hawks, including a jumper with 4:29 left in the second quarter that put Atlanta ahead to stay, 40-39.

"Ed Gray came in and gave us a hell of a lift, he was real sharp," said Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens. "Your bench can be productive even if it doesn't score, but we've got a lot of guys who can shoot and score."

Atlanta held a 71-65 edge with 95 seconds left in the third quarter when a layup by Mutombo sparked the decisive run. Laettner capped the burst with a pair of free throws 2:31 into the fourth quarter to give the Hawks their biggest lead, 82-66.

"Offensively, we had some good looks," Anderson said. "But they had one good spurt and we were playing catch-up."

Arvydas Sabonis had 14 points and all five starters scored in double figures for the Trail Blazers, who shot 48 percent (35-of-73) and held a slim 39-37 edge on the boards but were hurt by a 19-point third quarter.

The first-place Hawks, who lost three straight games prior to their current winning streak, hold a three-game edge over the Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Hornets in the Central Division.

"It's feeling good, it's feeling really good," said Mutombo. "We were not having fun on the losing streak, we were just trying to figure out what was going wrong."
