Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Chris Whitney scored 19 points to lead seven players in double figures as the Washington Wizards never trailed in a 108-98 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, whose franchise-record road losing streak reached 11 games.

Whitney, starting his seventh consecutive game at point guard in place of the injured Rod Strickland, also had seven assists in leading the Wizards (28-48) to their eighth victory in 11 games.

All five Washington starters scored in double figures. Mitch Richmond scored 15 points, Jahidi White added 13 and Juwan Howard and Gerard King 10 apiece. Richard Hamilton scored 16 points and Tracy Murray added 10 off the bench.

"I'm just out there leading the team, which is one of my strong points," Whitney said. "This is nothing new for me, and I'm sure it's nothing new for my teammates. But a lot of people that haven't seen me play a lot are probably surprised."

"Whitney's a tough customer. He's a survivor," Wizards coach Darrell Walker said. "Guys like that play hurt, play hard and play the game the way the game is supposed to be played. He respects the game and I have a lot of respect for him."

White made 6-of-10 shots and pulled down 14 rebounds against counterpart and fellow Georgetown alumnus Dikembe Mutombo, who had 10 points, nine rebounds and a technical foul for a lip-zipped "taunting" of the fallen White following a loose-ball rebound.

That call came with 22 seconds remaining in the third quarter and Richmond's ensuing technical free throw gave the Wizards an 81-63 lead.

Mutombo, who earlier in the quarter got into referee Jess Kersey's bad graces, received the taunting technical from Joe DeRosa. Mutombo asked DeRosa, "What did I do? I flexed my muscle. Since when is flexing your muscle a technical foul?"

Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens, who heard nothing, had seen enough.

"For me, it's the continuation of a long season," Wilkens said. "We're still learning to play with one another. We've got like eight new players this year. And at this level, that's just a lot. We're like an expansion team, learning one another."

Richmond scored eight points to spark a 15-3 run that closed the first quarter. Whitney capped it with a 3-pointer at the buzzer for a 32-16 lead.

"You can't come out and get down 20," Wilkens said. "No team is going to let you back in. We came out in the second half and played well, but hell, the die was cast. The other team, they have some pride."

Alan Henderson led the Hawks (26-50) with 22 points. Bimbo Coles and rookie Dion Glover each added 15 and Jimmy Jackson and rookie Cal Bowdler nine apiece.

"We didn't play our defensive rotations too well, especially in the first half," Wilkens said. "And before you knew it, they were up 17 or 18 points in the first half. We just dug ourselves too big of a hole."

Mutombo epitomized the Hawks' frustration and lashed out at the officials.

"When you lose the season the way we did and you're trying to come up with a win, it's unfair when someone is in your way trying to stop you," Mutombo said. "They didn't appreciate what was going on out there. Like that technical foul I got today for rebounding and then flexing my muscle. That's the first thing I have seen in my life in the NBA where somebody rebounds the ball, flexes his muscle, and gets a technical foul. Maybe it's something new. Maybe the rules changed last night. I don't know.

"Taunting what? For flexing my muscle? If they were trying to find a way to get me out of the game they should've done it a long time ago."

Meanwhile, White felt like he had passed another Georgetown exam.

"I think my toughest games are against Georgetown centers," White said. "They always have been. I know that I really have to come out and play for those guys. They can all play, and they've been around for a while."
