GAME RECAP

Tyrone Corbin scored eight of his 18 points in a game-opening burst and the Atlanta Hawks had their biggest quarter and game of the season as they remained perfect against the Vancouver Grizzlies with a 115-92 victory.

Steve Smith scored 21 points and Alan Henderson added 15 for the Hawks, who have won two in a row following a three-game losing streak, posting their best offensive effort of the season in both wins. Atlanta also had season highs with 31 assists and 20 steals.

"I thought that we got after them right at the beginning of the game and kept it up," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Our defense was the key because we forced 17 turnovers in the first half. We were very aggressive and alert and went after it and I thought that's what got us going."

Atlanta scored a season-high 40 points in the opening quarter as it raced to a 13-point lead. Corbin scored eight points and Dikembe Mutombo added five in the first 4:14 as the Hawks raced to a 21-8 advantage.

"The shots felt good," said Corbin, who was 6-of-12 from the field. "The team did a good job rotating the ball around. Fortunately for us, we have guys like myself making shots."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 18 points and Bryant Reeves added 14 and 11 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have lost nine of their last 10 games as they dropped the opener of a four-game road trip. Vancouver committed 25 turnovers and is 0-5 all-time against Atlanta.

"I think that the tone of the game was set in the first quarter, with our rash of turnovers, which led to fast-break buckets and our lack of intensity," Grizzlies coach Brian Hill said. "We had 17 turnovers in the first half, which led to countless easy baskets for them. That just put us in a tremendous hole that we just dug for ourselves. This game was the most brutal game I've seen all year."

Forward Michael Smith and guard Bobby Hurley, both acquired from Sacramento for Otis Thorpe and Chris Robinson on Wednesday, made their Grizzlies debuts. Smith scored 12 of his 14 points in the meaningless final period and Hurley scored four points. Guard Doug West, also acquired Wednesday from Minnesota for guard Anthony Peeler, was not with the team.

A drive by Smith capped the opening spurt and the Hawks stayed hot, taking a 40-27 lead after one quarter and shooting 56 percent (14-of-25) from the field, including 4-of-5 from three-point range.

"The Hawks came out ready to play," Reeves said. "We were a bit flat for whatever reason. There's no excuse for giving up 40 points in the first quarter."

A jumper by Sam Mack cut the deficit to 46-37 with 8:10 left in the second quarter, but the Hawks scored the next 11 points and the Grizzlies never were within single digits thereafter. Chucky Brown scored six of his 10 points in the spurt, including a dunk that capped it at 57-37 with 5:02 remaining.

Vancouver shot just 30 percent (6-of-20) in the second quarter and trailed 64-43 at halftime. Atlanta put away the game with a 7-0 run, opening its largest lead at 86-56 on a pair of free throws by Corbin with 3:27 left in the third quarter.

"We came out and moved the ball around really good, caused some turnovers there staying up, pressuring them," Henderson said. "And we got some easy looks at the basket and just continued that throughout the game and it turned out pretty good."

The Grizzlies got no closer than 21 points thereafter and the Hawks emptied the bench in the final period.

Mutombo also scored 10 points for the Hawks, who shot 52 percent (44-of-85) and made 18-of-22 free throws. Atlanta was 9-of-20 from behind the arc, including 4-of-6 from Corbin.

"Our offense is coming around, but the most important thing is we're playing decent defense and that's what we need to keep doing," said Henderson, who is averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 rebounds in his last six games. "I don't think we'll have too many problems scoring buckets. Every once in a while, it might get a little low, but once we get our defense going, it will be OK."

Tony Massenburg scored 11 points for the Grizzlies, who shot 44 percent (36-of-81) and held a 48-39 rebounding edge.

With a 10-0 mark against Toronto, Atlanta is 15-0 all-time against the Canadian expansion teams.
