GAME RECAP

Tyrone Corbin scored six of his 19 points in overtime, including a jumper with 3:57 to go that put the Atlanta Hawks ahead for good in a 107-102 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Corbin, who had just five points through three quarters, hit the first basket of overtime to make it 95-93 and then nailed the go-ahead jumper with 3:57 remaining. Eldridge Recasner followed with a jumper with 2:49 to play and Dikembe Mutombo converted a layup 48 seconds later to extend the lead to 101-95.

The Wizards rallied to within 101-99 on two foul shots from Juwan Howard and a reverse layup by Rod Strickland with 75 seconds left, but Steve Smith answered with his own reverse 15 seconds later and two free throws with 23.4 seconds remaining to make it 105-99.

"We were playing with a lot of confidence, and down the stretch we felt real good that sometimes we can shut teams down and have a chance to win," said Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens. "We did that tonight. We knew we were going to have to play with some intensity and I thought we did that."

Christian Laettner recorded 23 points and eight rebounds, while Smith had 22 and five assists for Atlanta, which has won all three meetings with Washington this season, including an 82-77 home victory on Friday.

"It was a good clean basketball game, good clean talking," Smith said in reference to Friday's contest that featured some heated exchanges between he and Chris Webber. "Nobody said anything, I think. Two teams just went at it. It was never personally me against Chris Webber, me versus Juwan Howard. I want people to understand that. I was quiet. The referees gave us a good message in the beginning, they won't have any of it."

The Hawks have captured three straight contests since a seven-game skid and won for just the second time in their last seven road games. Atlanta snapped a three-game road losing streak in the series, winning for the first time since February 24th, 1995 at Baltimore.

Strickland totaled a career-high 37 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds for Washington, which fell to 10-2 at the MCI Center. His previous career high of 36 points was set on January 24th, 1995 while with the Portland Trail Blazers.

"They (Hawks) executed better and kept moving the ball," said Strickland. "We played well, but they just flat-out outplayed us. I had it going, I was in a good groove the whole game. We just didn't take advantage when it counted, especially when they didn't play Mutombo."

Laettner netted 10 points in the first quarter to help stake the Hawks to a 26-24 lead. They were up 39-34 with 5:46 to go in the half before Recasner tallied eight points in an 11-4 run that increased the margin to 50-38 with 1:57 left.

Atlanta settled for a 53-42 halftime lead and bumped the gap to 59-44 with 10:26 left after consecutive three-pointers by Laettner and Recasner. But the Wizards retaliated with a 17-3 spurt, featuring seven points from Chris Webber, to narrow the deficit to 62-61 with 4:37 to go.

Washington trailed 74-73 heading into the fourth period and took its biggest lead of the game at 80-76 when Tracy Murray's three-pointer with 9:25 remaining capped a 7-0 burst.

The Wizards took their last lead of the game at 92-91 on Ledell Eackles' two free throws with 32.9 seconds left in regulation before Laettner answered with two foul shots 12 seconds later to give the Hawks a 93-92 edge.

Strickland was fouled driving to the hoop with 12.8 seconds to play, but was only able to tie the score at 93-93 after missing his second free throw, his only miss in 14 attempts. Following a timeout, Smith ran the clock down and missed a possible game-winning running jumper in the lane at the buzzer.

"When you are in a good basketball game with a good basketball team, you just can't build a deficit," said Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff. "We expended a lot of energy tonight and we expended it in the wrong directions. I don't think we lost any momentum, my concern is we fell behind early. The guys who are supposed to energize us and do the dirty work need to start doing the dirty work."

Recasner tallied 16 points, while Mutombo finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds for Atlanta, which was 32-for-40 (80 percent) from the foul line and won the rebounding battle, 45-39.

Webber registered 25 points and 10 boards and Howard and Murray each added 17 points for the Wizards, who shot just 40 percent (35-of-88) from the field, but 26-for-30 (87 percent) from the line. Starting shooting guard Calbert Cheaney played just five minutes due to tendinitis in his right knee.
