GAME RECAP

Steve Smith scored 17 points and hit the go-ahead jumper with a minute to go as the Atlanta Hawks handed the injury-plagued Milwaukee Bucks their eighth straight loss, 84-81.

Dikembe Mutombo had 18 points, 15 rebounds and eight blocked shots for the Hawks, who have won seven of their last eight games to move within 1 1/2 games of the Charlotte Hornets for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Milwaukee rallied late in the game behind Armon Gilliam, who scored six of his 19 points in an 11-2 run that put Milwaukee ahead with 1:11 to play. His tip-in capped the burst, giving the Bucks an 81-80 lead.

"It just hurts when you work so hard to try to bury a team and they don't want to go down," Mutombo said. "It kind of frustrates you a little bit. You start asking yourself, What are we doing wrong offensively that we aren't getting the basket? I feel much better now that we got this 'W.'"

Smith answered with the 10-foot jumper and after Milwaukee turned it over with less than 10 seconds left, Eldridge Recasner made his 34th and 35th consecutive foul shots with 4.3 seconds remaining.

"Milwaukee wasn't going to let me score today, they kept double-teaming me," Smith said. "Dikembe and Chris (Crawford) stepped up for us. It was a good win for us, even though we didn't want to make this close."

Ray Allen, who led the Bucks with 21 points, missed a potential tying three-pointer as time expired. Allen had 10 rebounds and six assists, but hit just 6-of-21 from the field as the Bucks shot 35 percent (31-of-89) overall.

Milwaukee, playing without injured starters Glenn Robinson, Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill, is in the midst of its longest losing streak since dropping eight in a row from February 21st-March 7th of last season.

"That's how it's been over the last eight games," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "We had a chance to win. I'm proud of the way the guys competed tonight."

"You don't take anybody for granted and we didn't," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Who says every win is going to be easy? They're not."

The Bucks' next game is against Indiana on Sunday when they could lose nine consecutive contests for the first time since dropping a franchise-record 15 straight from March 4th-30th, 1996.

Atlanta played its final home game at Georgia Tech, finishing with a 12-1 mark there. The Hawks won their sixth straight home game overall despite playing without starting point guard Mookie Blaylock, who was hospitalized prior to the game to be tested for anemia.

"Without Mookie, I felt it was a good win," Wilkens said. "There's a real possibility he could be with us tomorrow."

Recasner, who has missed just one of 53 free throws this season, had 12 points and eight assists starting in place of Blaylock, who will not fly with the team to New York but may play in Friday's game against the Knicks.

A three-pointer by Smith sparked a 15-4 run early in the third quarter. Recasner fed Tyrone Corbin, who scored 10 points, for a three-pointer to cap that burst, building a 59-46 lead with 5:46 remaining.

But Milwaukee used a 13-3 run bridging the third and fourth quarters to get back in it. Jerald Honeycutt scored five of his 13 points in that spurt and a three-pointer by Jamie Feick capped it, pulling the Bucks within 66-63 with 10:47 to play.

Atlanta later responded with seven straight points as Smith hit two free throws before Recasner made a layup and three-pointer for a 75-66 lead with 6:24 remaining. Milwaukee started to chip away but a free throw by Mutombo had the Hawks in front, 78-70, with 4:04 left before Gilliam buried a 15-footer to spark the 11-2 burst.

"It was a disappointing loss," Gilliam said. "Sometimes it hurts more to lose by one than 15. It was our game to win."

Alan Henderson collected 14 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks, who atoned for a 40 percent (30-of-75) effort from the field by hitting 19-of-24 foul shots. Atlanta won the season series from the Bucks, 3-1, and has won nine of the last 10 meetings overall.

Milwaukee made just 15-of-25 free throws in losing its seventh straight trip to Atlanta since November 18th, 1994. Ervin Johnson had 10 points and 17 boards but the Bucks were still outrebounded, 54-50.
